96 Camaro ventilation problem

Hi There

I recently bought a 96 Camaro as a daily driver.

When I bought it the aircondition and ventilation system was working fine, now after the car has been stored for a short while the ventilation system is stock in a position where it gives air to the windshield and to the feet - no matter the position of the dial. The dial still switches the aircon on and off as i should be depending on position.

Are the ventilation flaps vacuum controlled?
Has anybody experienced something similar?

A few pics of my 4th gen.

Sounds like the vacuum line under the hood that leads inside is broken somewhere and the door is in its at rest position which is defrost.

Re: 96 Camaro ventilation problem

I found a broken vacuum line near the vacuum box. Where the line runs through the "radiator core support" it has been rubbing against the steel edge - an easy fix.

Some help found here:

EDIT:

As mentioned car has been sitting for about a month, and it seems like mice has gotton to it. Found one more vacuum line chewed up, the line passing through the firewall. No spare vacuum lines available here, so I will try to make a temporary repair.
