Temp fix for ACC 08?

Wondering if there is any easy way to temporarily fix my ACC 08 fault code/busted blend door. I am getting full cold on the driver's side, not ideal with the temps hovering around 0 lately. I've been getting by with the heat on the dash vents only and the driver's vents closed with the pass. side vents blasting full hot. But my feet are freezing and I've had a few issues with the lack or defrost.

So is there any semi-easy way to just rig up the driver's side to blow full hot? The car has no AC so I'm really not worried about cooling air at all.

Any help appreciated!

My first 9-5 had the blend door completely manual. Summer, reach down and rotate it back to full cold. You could do that.

Is it that simple? Just reach under and rotate it to the appropriate setting?

Is it just a matter of removing the kick panel to gain access to the stepper motor, removing that, then turning the rod manually? I'm looking at pics to try and figure it out, but just want to have an idea before I sit out there in the freezing cold attempting to fix this...

The motor is not connected to anything. that's the problem.
You have to move the yellow piece; That's what's broken/disconnected. But yes; you're just rotating it.

I've always just dealt with it. The fix is pretty easy. Have you bought the repair piece, yet? be gentle when you repair it. I broke mine further than it was, and now I'm told I need a new heater-box (or to cut mine up)

OK so then I just pop the motor out and rotate the yellow piece with a flat head or something?

I haven't bought any parts or pieces yet, just looking for how to manually flip it from cold to hot and let it stay there for the winter. -10 this morning and I friggen froze on the ride in to work!
