|Dodge Durango heat...|
|(1/3) > >>|
looking for simple info as to the removal of the top of the dash so I may see what is not moving to blow hot air out the dash front and floor...blower works and blows hot air up to the windshield and rear heater works been searching the forums but they all get too involved for my simple abilities...
Simple answer is..don't! Usually the doors that route air to different ducts in modern day vehicles are moved by vacuum. Look under the hood for a broken or disconnected vacuum hose. Tiny (1/4-3/8)"soft rubber hoses back around the firewall start in the general vicinity of the blower motor and work your way to the larger (1/2-3/4)" rubber hose that goes to the big round power brake booster up high on driver's side. There's probably a half dozen or so that tee off and go to different sensors on the engine . It could be any of the plastic tees or the nipple on the sensors. If you absolutely have to go into the dash, the doors for the floor ducts are usually reached by standing on your head on the front floor mats, or the middle dash ducts through the glove box.
Hope this helps!
Guess I'll have a look around the tubing....we took a look at the garage and there is a plastic tube that goes into the intake above the blower and we didn't see anything out of place. one of the forums indicates that there is a filter and the crud from it can jam the doors... I'll download a service manual and print a few pages..I just may have to wait for warmer weather... thanks for the input
Hey Zeke, is that Dodge of yours made in any particular year? I know, details details.....sigh....
2002 Durango SLT, 4.7L.....took a ride yesterday to get some sports card storage boxes and the noise it made was weird, sort of a 'whoooooo' at different times, sometimes loud, at speeds between 30mph and 40mph, then after 10+ miles it stopped. Seems to come and go.....as the vehicle was bought from a local dealer, I can't rule out some form of ''unreasonable maintenance' by them.. I figure that as the 'heater door'? doesn't open or something doesn't rotate so that I get air blown out of the dash and floor vents......I can't even make a sensible conclusion to that statement...either a vacuum leak or 'sumpin' is stuck....
