Why aren't my middle air vents aren't blowing any air? Mode Door?

middle, but they don't blow. Took it to a mechanic last week and they charged me $40

repair. Is there any cheaper way of fixing this problem, even if I have to do it on my
If it were the mode door you wouldn't have air coming from any of the dash board vents. Sounds like the duct that goes from the heater box to the center outlets has come loose and fallen down some. You'll have to get behind the dash to see what's going on. HTH. -Jim

Have you checked the ducts, behind the dash, that go from the plenum to the dash? It still sounds like that's the problem. You're still getting air from the outboard vents on the dash but not the center vents on the dash, correct? -Jim
