HVAC Box Flap Valve Stuck on Cold Air

Hi All,

Looking for some help with my 06 Elise that doesnít doesnít blow hot air in the cabin. I traced it to the flap valve at the top of the HVAC box which doesnít move with temp knob changes (see below image of valve).

I managed to wiggle a tool behind the valve flap to attempt to nudge it back to the correct position. I gave it some leverage but it doesnít want to move. Any more force would have snapped it.

I think that the signal is not making it to the flap, but I also ensured that the HVAC controls are all attached behind the HVAC face plate. Are there other cable interfaces I should check? Do you have any other ideas? Itís starting to get colder where I live..
