It is called a blend door actuator and the dealer repair is about $850 since they have to pull the entire dash. I learned that this is a common issue for the Explorer however there has not been any recall on it yet. I called Ford customer service about the issue and they referred me to my dealer where I have my truck serviced. Luckily, the Service Manager at Blue Springs Ford made the reapir at no charge since I have been a customer since I made the new car purchase in 2004.
#394 of 536 Air conditioning compressor noise
Jul 05, 2010 (3:40 am)
I have a 2002 ford explorer sport, mileage 91,000 - when I turn the air conditioning on, a loud clicking sound comes from the compressor. It blows cold air - just wondering if there was anything I could do to quieten this noise (other than not using the air).
#396 of 536 Ford Explorer Air Conditioner

I have a 98 Explorer Sport. The Air Conditioner seems to work on short distances, but on long trips, stops blowing as hard and doesn't blow cold. Sometimes when I turn the car off and recrank it, it works fine again. Took it into a mechanic and it wouldn't act up for him so he said he could not fix it. Would love to know what's going on with it. Thanks for your help.
#398 of 536 Max A/C loses power

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport. My air conditioner works well when it is on regular A/C. But when I switch it to Max A/C, the air flow almost stops completely. Before the problem started, Max made the air flow stronger AND colder. I am guessing that there is a switch not moving a flap that should be moved. Does this sound right, and if not, could you please tell me what it could possibly be.

Again, could be a faulty expansion valve, a very easy and cheap fix if you know how. Also could be a vacuum problem with your blend door in the dash. A horrible and expensive repair if you know how, and impossible if you don't.

You are probably on the right track. I'm thinking a blend door in the dash isn't closing properly, or not opening properly. This is a tough and expensive fix as the whole dash will likely need to come out. I had this problem once, and just ran it on normal rather than fix it. But that was just me. If you want to pay to fix it, you need to take it to a mechanic who knows how to do it.

You have some sort of debris, paper towel, carpet piece, etc, trapped in the cabin air intake behind the glove box. Sit on the passenger side and move your right foot up and to the right as far as you can and your foot will be over the intake duct.
