My particular problem was a dislodged blend door, selecting between panel, defrost and floor.

There is a small motor behind the glove compartment that operates the panel. In my case, the motor was operating normally. That should be your first check. But, because it's behind the dash, if you don't have a friend that can help you or some time/knowledge on your hands, be prepared to pay for 3-4 hours of labor with potentially no resolution. I seriously doubt Ford or your dealer will do anything to help you. They didn't do anything to help me.
