[DML] Re: air conditioning.

You're right you can fix it that way. I prefer to use methods that are
more reversable. That expanding foam is very difficult to remove and
can damage things. If you squirt it into a small space it can exert
great force as it expands, bending things. It is very bad to get it on
your skin and it gets very hot as it cures. If you take your time you
can make the parts fit better and you can use foam weatherstripping
and duct tape to seal the duct up. You CAN lose a lot of cool air in
the doors if the parts are not fit together well and a lot of the
power of the blower motor. BTW the vents in the doors do not aim well,
I can't get them to point over enough so you can feel the air except
with your hand. If you feel you have to use the foam you can wrap the
duct loosely with tape and inject the foam between the tape and the
duct. You still would have to be careful not to get the foam inside
the duct.
