    Maby a pull cable like a aftermarket choke cable or something would work to Jimmy rig an auctuator I know the oil helped a bunch on my truck I think it thinned out the old grease or something like that

    From the video, your blend door is bending when you pull on it, it’s showing me something at the bottom is binding it up. Check/ pull out that off coloured white plastic piece beside the heater core, I’ve seen that bind stuff up before.

    Another tip, if you can’t see somewhere, like in the heater box, to actually see what the door is doing, stick you phone/camera where you can get your hand, and take some pictures/video, and look at those. I have big hands, and am also a big guy, so this has helped me many times. Also it helps you see behind things.

    Stuff falls back there a lot, especially pens. If you have a stick camera or can jam phone on there and take photo and see if something in there like a book of matches, a dead cicada carcass, etc

    If you need to replace the blend door:

    This was back in Sept. 2009:

    Part # & description is: EOTZ-18A361-A SEAL & DOOR ASSY - HT

    On my part box it is described as 'Control'

    Powerstrokeshop.com has it for $30 + shipping
