No air coming from Front Vents
Here's a run down of events leading up to this. Maybe 2 years ago, heat and air worked fabulously. Then one day, MAX setting on cold air stopped working, but all other settings continues to work. Maybe a few months after, no air came through the front vents - it only came from the defrost vents (when set on defrost). Now, no air (hot or cold) comes from from vents or defroster. Heat/air only work from rear vents.
I think you can hear some kind of vacuum noise when you turn the air unit on - it kind of sounds like air coming out of a small balloon. I got under the hood and checked all the hoses and they looked ok. I did the spray with water test too and the hoses passed.
I have read and watched videos about possible fixes til I can't see straight. Does anyone know what might be going on? I'd really like to try to fix this myself or at least have a general idea of what needs to happen to get this corrected. Thanks for light you can shed on my issue!
sounds like a bad blender door ill send you a link to a video with a some what simalur issue might help might not its almsot 1000 $ to fix and replace the whole air system or part at the dealer *they remove your whole dash to do it.*

I did not get the forums link can u Please send it thanks.
my friend read 4 quotes up it even says forums in the first word it says in the link
it's not the blend door !
it's not the blend door actuator !
i have seen a bunch where the main issue is the blend door. But its often the thing that attaches it to the control unit. The tab breaks off and the arm that adjusts the blend door just hangs down doing nothing.
