Heater flap door

The heater flapper door in my 2006 RAM broke off because it is cheesy plastic. Looks like it would be a booger to fix, having to take off a lot of the dashboard. Anyone fixed one or had it fixed? I can live with the
little teddy bear blanket stuffed in there in winter time if it costs a lot.

The RAM has several 'heater flapper door'(s). One is for Recirculation vs. Fresh, one for Blending hot with cold to get various stages of warm, another is a Mode door to direct the flow to various vents. One door is easy (Recirc), the others are less easy.
Which one is giving you problems, or what are the symptoms?

The controls quit working. I heard something rattling around in there. I reached up through the opening, and the little door was loose up in there. I took it out. A 3" x 4" approximate flap with two ears and pins on it, one of them broken. When I run in cold weather, the air comes through the port, and dumps at the feet of the passenger, and it is cold. If I stuff a towel in there, it's better, and the warm air still goes to the dash vents and windshield vents.
