The manifolds were designed for multiple applications.
Some vehicles use the extra ports, others do not.

Where are you located?

Has anything been messed with before?

Do you have a current issue
(say heat not working right) that you are trying to solve?

yeah, the blower doesnt blow the heat out of the right vents and im looking to see where that problem is, the heat also doesnt blow so hard. when i switch the selector switch to cold though, the air blows good but still doesnt get redirected.

your problem is probably one (or more) of three plastic arms for the vacuum actuators that controll the vent doors.

they are located under the dash, near the level of the heater controls, on the driver's side.

Mine broke, and I was stuck with the default defrost mode.

I added red arrows to a factory servic manual pic. They point to the plastic pieces theat break internally and cause the condition you described.

I'm 5'10" and it's a pain. I pulled the plastic and the metal panel off under the steering column. It hepled a little.
