Talking Heater Control Cable Stuck

The heater control cable on my wife's 2006 PT Cruiser is stuck. She leaves it on defrost all the time and I think the lack of use is the problem.

I had it in for service the other day and asked the dealer to check it out. It was near closing, so they didn't have the time to check the entire length of cable. They did find that the end toward the control had a kink in it and whenever the control was moved off defrost, the cable would buckle and spring back. The dealer said it may be that the blend door is stuck and that's why the cable kinked.

The repair cost is quoted at $81 including cable. I found the cable price to be about $12. My question is, how is the center panel removed from the dash without breaking it and how accessible is the other end of the cable where it attaches to the door?
