Re: [DML] AC blower fan strength/velocity

Jake:  We had that issue resolved already.

My wife could not ride in the car in December for the holiday parade.  She would get "frozen" from the cold air on the passenger side despite how high I had the heat.

Once again, Rob Grady (and Marc Levy) to the rescue!  Marc Levy suspected it might be the foam and asked Rob to take a look before we started to take apart the entire dash to find the "air leak'.  
At the 2007 Spring social Rob reached up and fixed the foam and taped it into place in about five minutes time.  This past year at the LBI holiday parade we stayed super warm in the car with little heat required.

I knew this would help keep the car cooler as well, but it really didn't make as much of a difference as I hoped.  Fixing the relay and getting better air velocity was a saving grace.  :)

Kevin made me think of another "weak air" culprit: The glued foam piece on the back of the A/C box.  If you have never resealed it, you can bet yours is leaking.

You can't see it, but if you reach your hand behind the console in the driver's footwell, and across the car toward the passenger side, you can feel a foam block on the back of the evaporator box.  If the foam is loose, put it back on.  Duct tape is probably the easiest; trying to get glue back there could make a real mess.

Reattaching that will also fix the 'warm air on the driver's feet during the summer' and 'cold air on the driver's feet during the winter' problem.
