Before pulling out dash, try other climate control module.

Replacing blend door motor without removing bid black box is more interesting... :D

You can test the BDM motor and feedback resistor from the dash unit plugs - see the tech doco pinouts.
Might be just a poor connection on the dash unit plugs.

Have a read of this technical document to get the E2 code via the Diagnostics Mode of the CC.

If you don't get an E2 code then your blend door motor is fine. If that's the case, check the heater tap in the engine bay...vacuum hose may have come off or heater tap is stuck closed or heater tap is just broken.
