FIrst off you shouldn't clean a cabin air filter, just replace with a new one, they are around $20. Second, sorry your truck doesn't have a cabin air filter. So no worries.

Tom, thank you for your answer. However I disagree with you since I have located a filter housing just abover the blower motor. I have already removed two screws that hold the cover down. The cover is now somewhat loose but evediently something else is holding it down. There is a filter inside since I can get my finger thru the grill work and can move the filter. If I raise it a little, I get the full blast of the blower as I had before when the truck was newer.

Tom, you were right after all. What I thought was a cabin air filter turned out to be the foam flapper that closes off the outside air so the cabin air can re-circulate. The flapper had broken off the control motor and was laying on top of the blower moter keeping the full force of the air from coming out the vents.

I'm having this same issue, Lilbear2, how exactly did you figure this all out and how can I fix it?
