AC Output OK on Defroster and Feet, but Not Front Vents
I am trying to figure out why I can get proper airflow through the defroster vents and the feet vents, but nothing from the front vents. Note: On the dial, front vents (the ones not putting out air) is to the left, feet in the top middle, and defroster to the right).
After a bit of reading online, I looked behind the dashbaord/control panel and could see a white "wheel" that moves up and down as I turn the vent dial. I have uploaded a video showing this. To me, not ever having seen how it "supposed to" look, it seems the white wheel gets a little bit stuck when turning the dial to front vents. Air continues to flow out of the feet vents as it seems the wheel cannot shift over to front vents all the way.

This is on a 2007 Cobalt. Any suggestions? Also, does anyone know the name of this piece?

Reason: Took a video of the potential issue.
