One small issue, I was wrestling everything back in place to reassemble it, I managed to pop the metal rod off the control motor. When I finally got the control motor back in place, the rod was back in the top (resting in the round yellow disc) but I don't think it was snapped in or attached. How important is that piece? Any idea what will happen? Hope I haven't made things worse...
Now that you've entered the world of car repairs, you have learned that it's important to not create a new problem when you're repairing an old one. So get back in there and fix it right. In the future when you see a post about FSU's or outside air control motors you'll qualify as our new resident expert. Keep up the good work!
