I have not had that problem but the following is From my service Manual:

Possible Cause for no forced air in Defrost Position:
1.Vacuum line pinched or leaking.
2.Faulty heat, defroster, or mode door.
3.Faulty selector switch.
4.Vacuum check valve.

Correction
1.Locate and repair vacuum leak or pinched line
2.Test actuators and door operation. Repair as necessary.
3.Test selector switch and replace if necessary.
4.Test check valve and replace if necessary.

Is the air flow coming out of the vent coming out alright when there on? Or is it just the defroster that nothing is coming out of it? Could be the fan motor if nothing is coming out of the other vent when they are turned on...

Hi Donny

How did you get on. I get air out of the centre vent up to the windscreen, but demisting the car is the probably the worst car I have ever had. If I get the windscreen clear then the side windows mist up, once I get them clear the windscreen is misted again.

I love the car but hate the demister.
