Hello, I've been having some problems with my F-150's heater. First I noticed that I don't have a windshield defroster any more. Then I started smelling antifreeze in the air. Well, I figured I should be able to fix all of this, after all, heater cores and actuators are easy to replace once you pull the dash cap, the glove box, and the stereo.
Well, the heater core wasn't too bad and it only cost me about $50 for a replacement. But when I started looking into the defrost, I found out that the actuator is working, in fact, all of them are. I just don't have air flow to anything but the dash vents.
So, how far do I have to tear it down to remove the heater ducting, and once I remove it, is the diverter something that can be fixed? Or am I going to have to raid the junk yard for a replacement piece?
Any help would be appreciated.
