SOURCE: blend door
Yes take the glove box out. Once done you should see a control that kinda resembles a boot and it has a small white arm on it that looks like a straw and has two phillip head screws that should be removed then disconnect the wire connection to it. Once you do that get a dremmel tool and cut a hole wide enough to see the doors they are right behind that black wall and dont worry its ok to cut that spot out all that comes out of it is air and it wont bother anything. you can take the doors out from there or at least see wuts wrong with it. More that like that thing i said that looked like a straw is connected to an actuator arm which the doors are connected to. You can see if they are broke or the arm just needs replacing from there. Doors up for heat------Doors down for a/c. You will see what i mean. If I confused ya then go to www.heatertreater.net and it will give you a picture of what i mean....

The Jeep Grand Cherokee sucks air from the outside via a hole on the passenger side of the cowl. It's under the black plastic piece that runs under the wipers.
The air is then sucked via the blower and blown into the housing where the heater core and A/C evaporator core live.
The blend door is inside this housing as well.
This also depends on if you have regular climate control or the more advanced ATC digital climate control found on some of the Limiteds.
You could possibly take out your glovebox and see if there are any broken pieces going to the door accuator.
Otherwise if it's internal, you'll need to take out the heater/ A/C housing.
To get to this housing, you have to take apart your entire dash, lift the top dash cover off, and then you'll see the housing. You could possibly check for a few thing there.
Most everything there is vacuum controlled.
You have to drain your antifreeze and have your A/C freon discharged (use a professional to capture the freon).
There are 5-6 nuts holding the housing to the firewall. You have to reach these from the engine compartment.
Disconnect your A/C lines and heater hoses. Pull out housing.
This is definately an advanced project, thus the reason for the high pricing.
Hopefully you can get it fixed without having to take this Jeep apart entirely. Try diagnosing with a vacuum gauge if necessary before tearing it apart.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
