Default a/c issue

My a/c isn't the coldest which I'm sure it just needs a refill but that'* not the problem. It doesn't blow hard at all out of the front vents. You can here the blower working at top speed and sounds like it would be flying out of the vents but it hardly trickles out. If I change it to the vents by your feet it pours out not to mention the vents in the back seat as well. I removed my cabin filter and it didn't make a change. Any ideas?

It sounds as if a door isn't shifting when it should be. Do you have automatic climate control or manual climate control? Do not take this the wrong way, but the dash outlets (manual dampers) are all wide open, correct?

All wide open. Sounds like maybe a door isn't opening, which would make sense because my air mixutre chamber is broke too. I had to take it off and jimmy rig it to get the air to kick in other wise it just blows out hot air out of the passenger side.

That would be part of the problem. Can you see the other doors moving and actuating as you change the various venting positions?

Thanks again for the info but the more I think about it, I think that door has to be working. I can alternate it from blowing on my feet to the dash to the defroster no problem, it just doesn't blow hard coming out of the dash vents. It seems to me something is blocking it, like its clogged. I'll probably check out that door anyway just to play it safe.
