Rockit is on a distinguished road
I found the blend door and the Bowden cable by removing the glove box and the plastic heat duct.

Problem is the blend door itself is hard to move, so the load in the gears to turn the door cant handle it, actually a very poor design. I've messed with this for hours. I lubed the door as much as I possibaly could but has no effect. Right now I have to manually move the blend door by hand so in the spring I have to open it more by hand..sucks.

Only thing I can guess is the person that owned it be fore me was a smoker and it made the door stick. The vents stick, the seat buttons stick, even though the car does not smell it must be the tar left over.

If anyone else had this problem let me know what you did to fix it?
