air conditioner problems

I have a 1995 5.0 mustang loaded and a convertible.Started it up and the air is now coming out of the defroster vents.Short on money, can I fix this myself? I am pretty handy if I may say so myself.But there is a limit.

Kerry is on the right track. The switching doors are vacuum operated. When there is a lack of vacuum supply, the default position is defrost. There is a small black plastic hose coming through the firewall to a vacuum supply. Find it and follow it into the dash until you find the break in it. Another thing to check is that supply may branch off to a ball shaped vacuum resovoir that acts as a reserve. Check that the hose is still attached to that and the resevoir is not broken.

I'm sure this would have cost aleast $100.00 plus to take it in a get someone to look at it and fix.But thanks to your knowledge and instructions on where to look, I was able to fix it. So again THANKS A WHOLE BUNCH.
