	I don't have the manual at home to check (it stays at work) but from the
description you give, and from the year of your car, I believe that you
have neither of these items. They were replaced on the 100/200 w/digital
climate control by a combined flap motor/feedback potentiometer that lives
on the left side of the climate control housing. Remove the wiper arms, the
black plastic cover you referred to, and the wiper motor/linkage assembly.
You'll find a small plastic cover, about 2x3 in. The motor/potentiometer
lives (or dies, frequently) behind there.
	If it's any help, to diagnose this, compare the readouts on control head
channels 8 & 9 at both temperature extremes. They should move together,
more or less. If the don't you either need a new motor/potentiometer, or
have a stuck flap. The former is far more likely than the later.
	Hope this helps...
