EJ swaped GL 10 no air form defrot vents
Posted 17 December 2012 - 02:14 AM
So dose anyone know were the door that controls the defrost is at or were the diaphragm that moves it is at I'm guessing thats were my problem is at.
But what I don't get is why the defrost is the only part not working in any other car I've driven if something fails in the HVAC system it will default to only defrost for safety. But on the GL it all just comes out the main vents seems like a crapy design to me.

press your hvac buttons and make sure they move if they do press the defrost.
which should turn the gears to almost the end of their teeth.
i had this problem on my car, turned one of the gears and havent had a problem since/
i hope you can understand me, its late and i'm feeling under the weather..

It's just to right of where the drivers right foot would be, kinda on the side of the whole HVAC box.

Nope, the switch is fed vaccum from the pastic cannister on the firewall in the engine bay side which is fed vacuum from the intake manifold of the engine. There is no vaccum pump, except on cruise control models and that's only for the cruise control.
The vacuum pump that generates the suction that operates the defrost duct gates, is in the dashboard switch. The engine vacuum system is completely different.

Thanks for all the help on what and were to look at so I could get this fixed. oh and this car did have the vac motor and I had removed it back when I did the swap so I think it was just for cruse control.
