No heating on driver side only and all fuses seem to be okay. Other side is in perfect condition. Both controls were working with A/C this summer, but a problem occured since about 3 weeks.

I don't trust these Butyl rubber hoses that are basically made from coal tar and chewing gum...they dry out and split...creating the condition that you are suffering from now...replace as many of these butyl rubber vacuum lines with silicone...you can tell when they are done because they can be ANY color...check the silicone hose suppliers...Gates rubbber and summitracing are just a few...they are usually found in "custom shops" for racing autos...same place that one might buy braided stainless steel aircraft fuel hose (as fuel line)~

It's not hard...just take 'em one at a time~

a pliers (to get stuck ones) and a sharp scissors will be the only tools you'll need...okay maybe an inspection mirror (available at NAPA)~
