The selector switch is a combination vacuum/electrical switch. When you rotate the switch (with engine running) you should hear the vents open and close via a vacuum-actuator. The easiest thing to fix is the rotary selector ( Heat-AC-Def ... etc) about $50 on Ebay. The vacuum-actuator is a PITA to fix (it's under the dash and requires arm movements you did not think were possible) but the good news is it's only about $25. Or ... if your lucky ,,,,The vacuum line may have come of the vacuum-actuator ... it's possible but based on how difficult they are to get off the vacuum-actuator , I doubt that happened. You may have been fooled thinking it's the temperature setting (most people are) but that is only connected to a variable resistor
