If you are hearing a clicking noise when try to move between temperatures then the blend door motor is most likley at fault. If you hear no noise and can see the actuator move but have NO temp change the door itself is likley broken. In order to change the blend door you would need to remove the dash and the HVAC plenum. It is not a job I would recommend doing in the driveway!
