So after a failed attempt at taking the dash out to fix it i put it back where it should be, but for some reason now the air is coming out of the window instead of the vents ? and then fogs up the glass

Any suggestions ?

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Perhaps you disturbed one of the hoses in the dash. Cab airflow will default to the defrost mode if insufficient vacuum available.
