Hello, the vacuum pump only controls the automatic*****on this vehicle. For flow control like floor and vents there is an electric motor. It is on the driver side of the HVAC plenum.

Ok I have pulled off one of the actuators but I'm not sure if that is the problem being that it seems this actuator I've pulled off only controls the flap for the driver side foot vent. Is this electric motor you're talking about accessible from under the dash or will the dash need to be removed? Also could you send me a picture of what it looks like?

here is a photo of the actuator that isn't working correctly.
