Default A/C stuck on defrost.

So, I did some searching and read that this is caused by a vacuum leak.
I looked under the hood but I'm not sure what exactly I'm looking for.

If anybody has some pic of what to look at or if somebody could explain it really well, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks!

Default Re: A/C stuck on defrost.

yeah, the vent flaps default to defrost when they have no vacuum to hold them open.

looking for a fix can be a pita, but I'd start looking at the lines under the dash, if you're lucky, maybe a connector came undone.
the vacuum lines are a bunch of bright colors, and are grouped together down there. They're rubbery, and they end in junction type connectors at various locations along the firewall, or at the canisters that operate the vent movement. the connectors are spread throughout the lines, for various t's and what not.

Sounds like fun....
Hopefully it isn't way up in there.
