Default Heater Issue

Can't find a ton of information on how to fix this.

No heat comes out of top vents, However works on defrost fine. Nob forces itself back, Even if I force it and hold it into place it doesn't put air out the top vents. When I first got the car they moved, Took a bit of force but worked. Now doesn't work at all. Here is a quick video I made showing the issue

If I buy a new set of controls from a junkyard ($20) will it fix the issue?

The cable has suffered a bend of the internal wire.
A new cable is a good remedy, as well as making sure the control doors that the cable actuates are not binding.

You can get to the mechanicals after removing the glove box and the mechanism cover from the side of the air distribution assembly.

The cable attachment at the knob requires the center radio fascia be removed.

If you just replace the cable and the control doors are stuck or binding the new cable will fail.

Good Luck
