The floor air vents on my 1997 Volvo 850 with ECC are not providing any air to my feet. How do I fix this 850 floor air vents problem?
You will need to repair the dampener motor aperture on your ECC unit. When broken, there is no air flowing to your feet/the floor. Py eloquently shares his solution with us, including pictures! Thanks, Py!
This inexpensive, relatively easy fix involves cutting off the tip of the black plastic piece to match the height of the steel driveshaft. Then, superglue that piece of plastic onto one of the flat surfaces of the square steel drive shaft. This prevents it from breaking off during reassembly. Py also had to file a bit of the plastic off so it would fit and provide a lead-in.
Volvo introduced this entirely new series in June 1991 as a dynamic automobile with four important breakthroughs. These were:
- Transverse 5-cylinder engine driving the front wheels
- Delta-link rear axle combining the dynamics and ride comfort of independent suspension with the security of a live rear axle
- SIPS integrated side-impact protection system; and
- The self-adjusting front seat belt mechanism.
