Fresh Air Vent Switch Broken

my fresh air vent switch/lever (next to the dash vent) seems to be stuck open. just from feeling the switch when i move it from open to close, there doesnt seem to be any tension on it what-so-ever, and i dont hear anything moving inside the dash.

i was looking through the service manual about a fix, and it talks about an arm that is connected to the switch, which moves a door inside the heating and cooling system. however, i dont think it says where it is located exactly, and whether i can get to it w/o tearing the dash apart.

i'd be perfectly content with just closing it, and being done with it. if its something super-easy to fix, and nothing is broken, then id give it a shot. but really, i just want it closed. can i get to the door lever w/o tearing the car apart?

Unfortunetly no i don't believe there is a way of getting to that particular part without taking the dash apart. However, it isn't all that difficult to take the dash apart Once you have the pain dash shroud popped out you can easily see the switch you are talking about that opens and closes for the vent.
