1991 Facelift 4.0

Central vents do not blow at all whether it be it hot / cold outside. Everything else work OK Any thoughts please?

I see the experts have not yet taken up your post but I can only say that there is info on here somewhere if you search the board. I have the same problem on my 2007 S type and never got it sorted since 2 years back.
I just considered it too much hassle and so ignored it. :mrgreen:

My first guess would be that the flap has stopped moving. Maybe because the motor has stuck or the gears have worn or stripped. Can you hear it moving when you turn the air on on full?

I think the facelift is basically the same as the earlier delanair mkiii although access may differ.
There is info and pictures on the net, have a google for delanair mkiii and I'm sure you will find what you need.

For others watching, it's important to 'excercise' the various controls often to keep the bits moving rather then leave the settings in the same place all the time.

Facelift is basically the same up until the introduction of air bags, then a right pain. Passenger airbag fills the space where the glove-box used to be!

As commented above, the Facelift has the Mk III air-con, which is controlled by micro-processor. If you have the Jaguar Heritage DVD of "Supplementary Information", you should find a diagnostic guide for it; I wrote up my experiences earlier here in this forum.

Thanks all - I'll give the DVD a look.
