yeah where your actuator hooks into the door the hinge is broke. can be fixed with a 1/8th in nail or something like that. Ill see if I can find the info. I have the same problem but never wanted to fix it.

The reason max a/c works and the rest is hot is because the heater core is always having coolant flow into it in every position except off and Max A/C. In the OFF and Max A/C positions vacuum is applied to the heater control valve, thus bypass the heater core.
