Recirc door problems

ive just replaced the two blend doors using the cut behind the glove box method and they work fine but im getting fault code 52 and have noticed that the recirc door above blower motor has a broken hinge like the blend doors.Is there a fix for this.

On thinking about it ... how often do we use the recirc function over here in Blighty, I can't think of the last time I used one so my question is this ..

Does it need to be fixed seeing as it has little use, or woth the self diagnostics eventually break the door??

Since I never used mine I just cable tied the broken door to the grille you can see when you remove the blower (under glovebox). Did it the same time I did the blend doors. This means air is always taken from outside so no recirc...fine in our climate. Real repair is dash out job....not worth it IMO.

Lots of thread about recirc door on here.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

I have the exact same thing, code 52. I am trying to remove the blower motor but there is a huge wire harness in the way. Real thick and I can hardly move it. Is there a trick to removing the blower motor? How do you remove it?
