Open/closes the flappers for the dash ventilation ducts, I would guess? My c900 manuals are on loan so I can't check for sure. Does it look like the actuator on the fresh-air flap under the hood vent, by any chance? Definately fits the description. Have you run through all of the vent positions in your control valve? That's all pneumatic, as you've probably noticed. I'd bet that's what you're looking at, and I bet the #3 hose would have had suction on it in one or more switch positions. > What is it? "Air solenoid" I think might be the technical term. Dave "How'd I do?" Hinz
