[DMCForum] Climate control problems

My car has had climate control problems since I bought it a year ago.
Earlier this year I finally got all of the mixed up vacuum controls
and the mode switch fixed, so that's done. However, I still have one
big problem:

My temperature selector actually moves air from one area to another,
and causes dramatic temperature problems. Some examples:

1. Sometimes it's too hot for "vent" but too cold for A/C. So I run
the A/C and move the temperature toward the warm side a bit. Problem:
When I move from cold to warm on Max A/C, air is directed away from
the vents and toward the floor! Worse, while the air coming out of the
vents hits the temperature I want, the air coming from the floor is
freezing cold no matter where the temperature is set. With the temp as
hot as it will go and the A/C & fan on max I get virtually no airflow
out the vents (but it's hot like it should be) and a lot of super cold
airflow by my feet.

2. Today, it was perfect outside and slightly hot in the car. So I
turned on "vent" and temperature all the way to cold. I got outside
temperature air out the vents, like I should, but I also got super hot
air at my feet - making the vent setting unusable.

What could be wrong? As far as I know changing the temperature
controls should not change air direction between the vents and my
feet. Not to mention the frustrating temperature differences.
