Hi. I have been trying to diagnose this problem. I can see that the gear is not broken, see the motor and gears move. Hear doors opening and closing. Will be replacing the heater core this weekend. Don't want to buy a distribution box if not needed.

Might be a bit too late, but you can remove the center stack, radio, and center duct and then reach your hand down into the distribution box. I've heard of issues where the gear shears at the shaft so everything looks OK outside but is stuck on the inside.

It has been fixed. The gear on the side of the distribution box was missing some teeth. the door was just flopping loose. New distribution box, and heater core have been installed.

Nice work. I've done that job, and it takes some perseverence.
