[DML] Re: AC blows intermittently

Greg - We had something like this happen in Winged1 several years ago 
(Rally to Leavenworth to be exact), but the air would not come out of 
the center vents at all.  On the right side of the air plenum, there 
is a vacuum actuator with a little plastic pitman arm that moves the 
main air distribution flap inside the plenum.  On Winged1, the 
plastic arm had failed.  I made a new one using a scrap of aluminum.  
The other aspect of this could be a leak in the diaphram of that 
actuator.  It is a royal pain to get to this area, but it is possible 
without disassembling the dash.

my AC now blows steadily at idle or coasting at any speed, but

Additionally, it now only blows out the armrest vents, not the ones 
above the radio. This seems like it is a vacuum related problem, but 
I'm stumped as to how too find and fix it. When I first noticed this 
I did get the center vents to work by moving the mode switch back and 
forth between settings, but now no setting causes them to work.
