Help with heat door in heater box (under dash)

I don't know how exactly it's called, but the door that controls the temperature of the air had broke.
The cables are now moving freely, and as far as I can tell, the red knob over the box still moves.
The button on the dash was hard to turn, and since tuesday I just get cold air in the truck.

Do I need to remove the whole dash to replace/repair it ?
I have borrowed the 1994 shop manual from the Ford dealer, but lacking the name of the name, I can't find it anywhere.
Dealer gave me the part number F5TZ-18A484-A, an obsolete part, can't find any info on that.


1996 Ford F-350
7.3 Powerstroke, manual 5 speeds, 4x4, Crew Cab, Long Bed, Srw, 4.10 gears.
1995 Ford Taurus SHO
V6 3.0L DOHC Yamaha, manual 5 speeds, Eibach springs, Koni struts, Quaife ATB diff, Brembo brakes, K&N filter, solid motor mount, 2x Pionner PIAA 10" subs + JBL GTO 301.1II amp, Cobra CB radio and wilson antenna

You check the end of the door acuator? i mean if you take it off can you move the door with your fingers or is the little tab it fits into gone?
