Hi all!

My el has just given this problem where no air comes from the vents at all.
The fan is working and when you turn the air flow direction dial you can hear the hissing noise as usual but no difference. Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks.

the vacume hose has come off the intake manifold, it is a little black hose and it slots onto a mateing part have a look at the back of your intake manifold near the firewall and see if there is any little free black hoses

also look at the small T pipes on the vacuum pipes as the T pipes get brittle and break from heat.
