97 Civix defrost question

My Civic does not get any air through the dash vents. What can I check? I can hear the air blowing, but nothing is coming out. I don't see any obstructions in the vent opening. The air does come out the side
vents, just not to the windshield. Any thoughts? Short of tearing the dash apart to get to the vents. Thanks.

you may need to buy a haynes honda civic repair manual. theyre about $15 at an autoparts store and find out how to take out the hearter/air conditioner control out of the dash and see if something popped out of place back in the dash. maybe the plastic duct thing going to the defrost vents is out of place or your heater control is bad. more likely it would be the heater control.

Jeff,
Thanks for the response. I have the car going to the shop Monday to be looked at, as far as the heat part. It heats up slow. I'll look tomorrow to see if I can find any vent problems. We've done some stereo replacements, so maybe something happened then.

If you close both of the side vents, do you get lots of air from the windshield vents? My CR-V needs to have them closed or there's very little air to the windshield. .
Does your owner's manual suggest this?

Curly,
I did try closing the side vents. Unfortunately, hardly a change in the amount of air going to the dash. Tomorrow, I should be able to take a look under the dash to see if anything came loose.
