Just Asking: I have this model car, and it seems like something is blocking the vent and the air wont come out.  The blower is fine, the compressor is fine, but it would blow toward me.  The air blows when placed on defrost, but something is clogging the air from blowing on any other notch.  Can someone advise me how to fix?

brandon cubberly: Does this also work to get the heater working!!!! I really need to know because it started to snow where I live and it's really cold need the heater working ASAP 

Tony Skiffington: did he say thats the metric system, not the "american" system? lol

Joy Toney: After all the problems everyone is having with GM products, especially Malibu's. I say we get together start some kind of petition, sue GM, demand the problems be fixed or another car of the same value replaced!!!! I am fed up with this car!!!! I have a 03 Malibu Ls, my ac is blowing hot now as of a week ago, and keeps cycling on and off, its not staying on long enough to cool anything and this is just one of many problems I'm having!! I don't know what to do because I cannot afford to bring my car to Chevrolet. Tomorrow I will be trying this, and I'm praying it works and I don't further mess it up! This is ridiculous, and something should be done!

daclyde: Thanks for posting this video!  I just followed your instructions and it worked great. Now I just have to get the AC recharged so it actually blows cold air again.

Charles Ardinger: My wife's '99 Malibu has always had problems with the AC. While it was still under warranty the dealership fixed it. Then, a year or two later, I had a mechanic replace the whole panel.  Since then it has worked hit or miss. Became quite the game to see who could get it to stay working. But, after searching online a few weeks ago and finding this, today I decided to give it a try. Piece of cake. It works now every time I turn on the switch. When it fails again, as it probably will, I can fix it in a few minutes. Thank you.

Xavier horn: i messed my car up trying this

Xavier horn: Wow so thats whats wrong with my car lol

Katie Key: So mine used to work great then started blowing warm air its been a while then i finally added freon but it didnt blow cold air the ac light flickers someone told me the compressor was the issue... did urs do the same thing?

rottenrowdie: Q tips work good as well

rottenrowdie: Thanks for this video. My ac is driving me apecrap. Typical gm the same dash and body parts used for 9 years.

Jason Navarro: One of the simplest and most useful repairs I have ever done on a car. Thanks for your video I can now go full blast again.

wcottee: My son and I just did this repair on his 98 malibu. Took about 1/2 hour and now it works great. Thank you for this video!!!

Nick Trevethan: This worked great on my 01 Malibu as well!! Thanks for the video!!

Monica Collier: I have purchased a new control panel and I hope this will fix my problem. The rear defrost light stays on and the a/c button will not come on and on the other side same thing one light stays on and the other wont turn on. Last year it was very fickle but the a/c worked fine when it did come on, but this year it will not come on at all Do you think it is just the panel that has gone out?

jimi18032: Thanks for the video, my friend! It took me only 15 minutes to do this but it didn't fix the problem in my '04 Classic.  I'm guessing my control board is shot.   Not only does the AC not work, but the recirculate and defrost button don't work, either.  

Kent Peterson: how much would the car dealer charge you for this. Mine air condition comes on and off.

Jacob Caufield: let me tell you this crap works took my car to the shop they couldnt figure it out and gave me a sheet full of problems that i didnt even have. watched this video and now my ac work great thanks for the help man

gunpei: big props for this vid, just fixed the AC in my 2003 malibu with this method.

xadam2dudex: the face plate is held in by clips not friction like the video says
