Red face No Defrost

My jeep has air coming out of all the vents except the windshield defrost and can't seem to find an answer and am new at this site so haven't found my way around all that well. Also when i have the heat up as high as possible it is only a couple degrees cooler than the outside and is not so fun when its 30 degrees out. I would appreciate any help. Thanks!

On my 97 the plastic lever for the defrost door was broken,The dealer told me that they didn't sell the lever anymore & the whole case had to be replaced,I was able to but just the lever from Telico 4x4 for like $15,Take the panel below the steering column off as well as the metal piece behind it then you should be able to look up under the dash and see the vacuum actuators if you switch vent positions you should see them move the defrost lever is closer to the dash

Second on the above, I fixed mine with a long self tapping screw, the shaft the lever broke off of is hollow from the forming process, you need a screw big enough to cut into that. You also need to move the lever around as well as the door to find out where the lever has to be in relation to the shaft. Just study it a while, it'll come. Oh, the vacum motors snap out, they are on a U shaped bayonet type mount, you will need to remove the one once you start working on it and get the lever reattached. You need to hook the end of the vac motor on the lever first then snap it into the mount. Oh, and it should have a little clip on it to hold in place.
