What would cause the windshield defroster in a 1997 Saturn SL1 to only blow air from the panel vents and floor vents instead of the defrost vents?

IF a Vaccume hose comes off OR is bad going 2 the DASH Controls that will happen OR a bad Actuator or Actuator door (stuck) will cause that.Make sure the vaccume Canister is not cracked (if it hs one) Usally it's a very small Vaccume line(hose) that causes the Problem. You either have a vacuum leak in the heater control system, or a cable that has come off of its control panel...

when the defroster is turned on, it activates the a/c compressor. the clutch may be locking up on the compressor.

I have a 95 saturn and it cost an average of 300 dollars to get the windshield replaced.

My answer would be to take it to a professional. Contact your insurance carrier. If you have Comprehensive coverage, the windshield will more than likely be replaced at no cost to you. Replacing a windshield is not a DIY job.
