Hey there,

Having an issue with my air conditioning. Car is a BA falcon. Have noticed recently when I switch the air con on, I can hear a thud underneath the passenger seat. Today when I switched on no more thud, but now cool air is only working on the drivers side. So drivers side vent is ice cold, drivers centre vent is cool, passenger centre vent is hot and passenger side vent is hot. Anyone have any ideas what this could be? Cheers.

Yeah common problem with the BA's, Dash has to come out to replace a $50 plastic shaft that snaps. But costs $900 in fraud labour to get to it. I would replace both at the same time if i was you!

thanks for the replies. May give it a shot myself using the repair manual as a guide. Anyone know if it is a hard job to do?

not hard to replace just quite involved. if its an XT however it will only have 1 shaft and its odd for there to be a temp difference. i have seen them with a temp difference when low on gas too so it might pay to get it checked

where in perth r u?

oh ok, that would seem odd if there is only 1 shaft as my drivers side is ice cold. I am located North of the river (Joondalup way).

thanks for your reply

do you still have this problem -
note that you posted in an old thread-if you have a problem post your own in appropriate section

normally occurs when there is a communication fault between HIM and ICC-can be wiring or HIM itself-check all fuses -check reverse lights/fuse-
try disconnecting HIM and reconnecting-or HIM from wreckers (from same build as yours-single zone-dual zone )-disconnect HIM and plug new one in temporarily and test ICC controls-however if this is the fault dash needs to come out............
update programming from Ford helps sometimes-
HIM is located on left of heater box........
