2002 F-150 ac problem

How do I get the ac control switch out of the dash? Something must have come loose as I only get cold air or heat to the windshield...

You might want to check the FAQs in the HVAC section first....

HVAC= Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning. Any forum sections have titles that look like that?

I don't remember what the dash looks like in a 2002 model if it's anything like my 1999
the radio surround just pops off and the heater/ac panel is held in by screws.

Possible loss of vacuum to dash or blend air door. The blend air door is notorious about breaking on these models. If it is the blend air door you will have 2 choices. Either remove the dash to replace it or use a Heater Treater repair kit. I personaly would use the kit.
Look on You Tube for the video on how to. You can order them online.

I don't have a blend door problem; as I get hot and cold air. It is the changing from, say defrost to blowing out the dash vents. Nothing happens when I change the settings just keeps blowing out the defrost vents.


Thanks

I finally found the problem. It was a small vacuum line in the engine compartment. Fixed doing fine.
Thanks all

'When function door is in defrost position, air inlet door vacuum control motor is at no vacuum, admitting only outside air into passenger compartment. Panel/floor door and panel/defrost vacuum control motors are at no vacuum, directing air airflow to defrost duct and side window demisters. Temperature can be adjusted to heat or cool air below outside temperature. A/C compressor will operate if outside temperature is above approximately 43*F (6*C). Blower motors is On.'

You're either not getting a vacuum source to the Panel/Defrost Vacuum Actuator or the actuator's diaphragm has a hole in it.
