Vents only work on defrost and floor

\015 I have a 2006 Ford Focus ZX4. The vents only work on the defrost and floor settings. The heat and air conditioning both work fine, and all of the mechanics and selectors switch freely, but no matter what setting I choose, the vents only blow on the defrost and floor settings.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

When turned to defrost, no air comes out of vents to windshield. Air only comes out of vents in dash and floor.

I have played with it but can not get air to direct out of the top vents onto the windshield. How do I get it reglued and divert the air onto the windshield if that is what is needed. The heater does not work on defrost but works on al other modes.
