We have a 2002 Ford 150. Since we got our 4x4 fixed at the repair shop, we do not have AC coming through the vents. The AC comes out of the defrost and lower vents. If we put the digital climate control on vent then we have air coming through the vent. We changed out the climate control with a different one and noticed one of the vacuum lines missing. Is this suppose to be this way? How can we find a diagram to see why the AC is not coming through the vents?
