Unhappy Blend door issue...need help please.

Hey guys, so I have done a considerable amount of research here but just need a good description of what to do.
I live in Arizona and it is currently summer time. Which means we average about 110 degrees during the day. It sucks.

What happens is with my a/c on (full blast) the two driver side vents blow warm air. The two passenger side vents blow super cold air. If I turn the passenger vents off, the two on the driver side blow semi cool air.

I have narrowed this down to a fault with the blend door. Either the door is stuck, or the motor/actuator has quit.

About a month ago I charged the a/c and since then it's been great until this issue.

What I really need help with is:

- The location of the blend door and it's motor/actuator
- What's the easiest way to get to it?
- Can I force the door closed/open for the time being so that I can get the a/c working while its hotter than the surface of the sun down here?
- And what is the best way to really solve this issue

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been a member of this forum for a long time now and I have always really appreciated all the help from my fellow Foci enthusiasts.

Thanks, Chris

The info at the link below is not much help, but it is a starting point. Un-hook glove compartment, and drop/lower it for access to the actuator.

BTW, on a few occasions with AC on, I have noticed that the drivers side vents are a little warmer than the passenger side. Things that make you go hmmmmm?
