There is a TSB on it, attached. It has repair kit part numbers.

If it is just a broken cable and the door and damper assy are intact it may be possible to fashion a DIY fix. I think there is a forum thread on it. You might be able to find it in a search.

I ran into the same issue - the piece is mis-aligned; needed to snap it up and put it back in place.

no need to take it apart - just guide it out of the track its in, and place it in the other (I can't remember if its supposed to be in the lower track). I'll check later on
