1999 Escort SE-Basically no air through vents

Changed blower motor and resister thinking I had bad one of the two. Cleaned intake above blower motor attached. I had a couple of leaves. New fan works great just not through vents. The fan speeds work. The switch from ac to just fan, defrost, floor etc. does move. I can hear the "valves, switches" moving on command. There is just a faint flow of air at the different locations as I move the switch. The compressor is switching on as I move the switch to ac.

I have read posts here first as always. I know vacuum sounds like the next level but are there any other mechanical switches, relays, that could be causing the issue?


Fan switches to all speeds fine!
Fan resister new
Fan switch fine in all levels
Main Switch(vent,defrost,floor,ac,max ac) works great - I can see vacuum switch move as knob is turned.
Fuses All good
Air barely flows from vents when fan is on high! Verified fan working

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for all the help!
Thanks from a dumb old dad! Like a bunny with that battery, I have to keep going and going and going on this car!
