  • So far so good. You will lose some vent presure from the bad seals but I suspect you have an evap/heater case flap door malfuntion. How are the doors moved? Electric or vacume?

      Electric and they all seem to work fine. With the box buttoned back up I could almost float my ball cap on the blower output

      ok, back at work with lots of resources including two Dodge stores. Got this in some of my reading and it is similar to my thought process from the other night. Also make sure your HVAC fresh air filter is clear. Blend air doors are notorious for these issues on most car lines. Let me know where you are on this.

      A common problem for the Dodge Ram pick up truck is to have low airflow even though the blower fan can be heard loud and strong. Usually the problem is because of a broken fresh air door – AKA recirculate door. The fresh air door is located behind the glove box area. What can happen is the door can break and fall down covering the blower fan, essentially sealing off all air-flow. That’s why the blower can sound normal on all speeds, but little air can be felt from the vents. The broken door below shows the point at which the break is common.
  • Let me do some research. Can I get make and model?

    Hey! Thanks for the offer!  I will dive right in.  It is a 2006 Dodge Ram and I am not getting very much airflow out of the vents.  I thought the evaporator core was plugged restricting airflow, so I took it all apart and the evaporator core was really not that bad, not stopped up bad... (after struggling with removing ac lines) I replaced it anyway. Put it all back together, went through the different modes before replacing dash everything looks good blowing strong.

     Dash back in and same thing, weak airflow through vents( fans blowing like hell but not much flow) 
     The only thing I noticed was the the foam that seals (air handler? Black box) to the actual dash vents was corroded and disintegrating.  
      The only thing I know left to do is take the (partially installed) dash back out and replace the foam that seals it to the vents.
     Am I on the right track?  =)

     thanks for your input
