I have a 2004 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer that we purchased new (as a left over). When you put it on mix (Floor & defrost) it appears OK, but sounds like something is not opening completely. When we put it on defrost, nothing changes & the air levels stay the same. During on recent snow storm, the top 1/2 of the windshield fogged up on the inside & ice built up in the same area on the outside (It never got any better & I had to stop many times scraping the outside & wiping the inside along with some cold air coming in under the glove box). I have complained about this for many years & over these years the Ford dealer has replaced the ductwork & still no positive results(While it was under warranty). A few years ago(during the last attempted fix or repair), I spoke with the factory rep. & was told that Ford was aware of this problem, but that there was nothing that they could do & that it was "just the nature of the vehicle". She also told me that this was a problem on the 2004 & 2005 explorers. I tested a 2005 (that happened to be on the lot) & yes, it was the same. I am concerned that an accident may happen due to this problem that Ford has acknowledged & after all these many years has not found a fix. My feelings are that they really don't care as they have received their money. QUALITY JOB 1????

Look at article #270 posted on Jan 24th 2010 and it will give you some information on a possible fix for your defroster. Also, once you pull the glove box door down by pulling the side arms in, you can see a round vacuum diaphragm with a lever on it. You can try to move the arm and see if it will change the direction from floor to defrost. I did that with mine.....

Sorry, Don't know where it is coming from. Others on this site have described the same problem with cold air coming around glove box area. Wish I could help, but can't.

I am having the same problem with my air system. I was wondering what the clicking in the rear over the driver side back tire was and how do you fix it? Mine makes the noise sometimes and other times it doesn't. Also my door sensor says i have a door open i was wondering if anyone has any advice to figure out which door the sensor is bad on? Thanks guys it is a huge help to get advice on these sites.
