Unhappy Z3 Roadster 1997 - Air Control Switch won't direct to dash

Hi guys - would really appreciate your advice. My air vent control refuses to point to the direction of the windscreen option. When I try to turn it it has resistance and will only turn to the floor setting or the (face) vents setting. It's like and elastic band that you pull and it just flicks back to one of those two settings. My mechanic said that he'd have to pull apart the entire dash to look at it and that it would cost me hundreds of dollars before they could even look at the cable. Just wondering if anyone knows a fix or a shortcut to fix this problem? It's winter here and I can't drive my Z# as the front window keeps steaming up!

Thanks,

Craig
