Airconditioning ducts

Any advice on threading my air duct work back in my car would be appreciated. I had to take one duct out of the car to fix the wiper motor. Is there any way to snake the duct back to where it belongs? From AC unit to the left kick panel.

Let's put this in General Rodding Tech. You will need to provide more info on what car it is that you're working on.

air ducts

I have a 1940 Ford pickup with Vintage Air installed. I had to take out the duct to the vent on the left kick panel so I could reattach the hot wire to the wiper motor. I am having a hard time putting the duct back, as it is a tight fit. Thought about taping the end of the duct to a piece of radiator hose and pulling it back into place, but wondered if anyone has a better suggestion. Anny suggestions would be welcome.

Just be patient and persistent. Make sure you have plenty of light to see what you're doing. It's difficult to know exactly what you are up against without seeing for myself, but when I have to get things through where hands and fingers don't fit, I use hemostats and/or pickup tools to walk it through.







Good luck.....

The hemostat idea worked. Thanks, there are times I cannot think of the proper tool for the job.

And that's what makes this a great forum. Nearly any problem you might run up against, someone else has been there/done that, and is willing to share a solution with you.
