Climate control problems.

Hey guys, I have a 1999, with the auto-climate control. I have heat/cold air, and all fan speeds work without any issues. The problem is, I can't redirect the airflow to the floorvents or windshield defrost vents, when the corresponding button is pressed on the panel. Usually I could hear a faint motor sound that probably moved an internal vent routing barrier as I would switch between the airflow settings. I'm sure someone else has had this issue and has a part number description. Any help appreciated, thanks.

You might try searching on this over on the Gen3/4 Camry forum DIY sticky. Sometimes the motor's gone bad, sometimes the plastic actuator arms are broken. If you're hearing the motor running, yours is probably the latter.

Thanks BMR.... I'm not hearing the motor at all. I'll try the Camry forum.
