The A/C worked fine when I bought the car three months ago, and it still works, except now it will only blow out of the defrost vents on top of the dash board no matter what setting I have it on. I have tried pulling the radio/A/C controls panel out to see if maybe the wires had gotten disconnected, and everything appears to be as it should be there. I have no other ideas on what it could possibally could be. Any suggestions would be helpful, and greatly apprieated.

    THERE IS A VACUUM LEAK ON THE VACUUM COMING IN TO THE CAB TO FEED THE A/C CONTROLS. EITHER A LEAK OR ONE OF THE CHECK VALVES IN THE VACUUM CANISTER ARE BAD. (MORE LIKELY A LEAK)
