Defrost not working

My windshield defroster isn't blowing out any air but the side ones are. I have read many threads about only the defroster working and it has to do with the vacuum lines, but is my problem due to a vacuum problem? The AC isn't currently working, but I suspect that that is just a leak. When I flip to defrost, I can hear a pop from a baffle, but nothing really happens. I could use some help as it is going to start freezing. Thanks!

i had the same problem, underneath dash driver side, you will see bars, connected to the vacuum, while looking under the dash have someone more the lever back and forth to find the defroster rod, instead of replacing mine i rigged it to the defrost and floor blower, only places i need heat, i don't have ac so i just don't move the lever.

Same problem here plus more. Only two fan speeds low and high. Selector only turns on defrost that is blocked and only when selector is positioned just right between floor and face. I can live without floor and face but no defrost may get me in some trouble. Any pics any where that will show me. Kind of a visual learner but will take what I can get and go a searching. Thanks
