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.
