After replacing the HVAC control bulbs the fresh/recycled air damper switch is stuck in the fresh position. Not a big deal since I hardly ever use recycled air but I'd like to fix it anyway. Things look OK on the switch end but I can't track the cable back to the damper end. Where is the damper located? Hidden behind some panel? Car is a 97 Impreza L wagon. Thanks!

The fresh air door is behind the glove box. If you remove the glovebox you should be able to see the door and the cable.

I removed the glove compartment with the two screws on the hinges and then took off the panel behind it. This exposed the fresh air door mechanism and I was able to quickly reattach the cable to the actuator. Thanks again!
