HVAC recirc blend door / damper stuck. Where is it located?

The air recirculation blend door/damper seems to be stuck and I'd like to know where that blend door is located within the cabin. I'm hoping to be able to manually free it up, preferably without taking apart the dash.

The car has sat for over a year previous to driving it again, and it's now well below freezing outside as well. The other day the knob for the air recirc seemed stuck... So I forced it ...until the cable popped off the back of the knob. I've reattached it, but the blend door is still stuck. I'm thinking it's frozen, or there's a gasket material that's sticking the damper shut, or there's a blockage of some kind. Either way I need to get my hands on it to fix it. If I have to pull the dash, I'll not going to bother. Hoping it's easy. Thanks

I agree with toyotavios_11.
Just remove the glove compartment and it can be nicely accessed.
Mine gets stuck from time to time as well (I had to fix the popped off knob a few times as well). I tried to clean up the gasket of the blend door, hoping that it will get better - and it did, for a week or so... yet it returned.
I am not sure what I did wrong - I am using all the filters, changing them regularly, yet still for some reason the blend door from time to time just "glue" and I have no idea what to do with that. If you figure out something, please share here. :)
