no heat on drivers side but I have heat on the passengers side

Asked by Oct 24, 2018 at 09:54 AM about the 2005 Ford Freestar SEL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Ford freeestar 2005. I just had a host of issues this last 4 months. I
just got it back and no its getting cold in Michigan and those frosty morning
need heat on the windshield.
I just noticed yesterday morning the heat was not blowing on the drivers
side. I cold feel it on the passengers side. I am a lady. Would I be able to do
it myself? I can just go to Ford and order the parts. If so, what will I need?
Any particular tools that I will need? Ive learned when one side goes the
other is right behind it. Should I do both sides? Thank you for the help! from
sick and tired of getting the run around with car repairs.

The ductwork has blend doors that move to get the temperature to the vent where you want it. Your blend doors are sticking or are frozen because the door actuators are defective. You may have noticed a tapping sound under the dash from a defective actuator. Try a spray lubricant on the actuators, or remove them to see if there's a broken sprocket. Might need replacing. It's not a difficult fix.
