The motor shaft had come out of the motor. I have no idea how this could happen. I ended up taking out the motor of the other servo (hot/cold servo) and comparing the two motor shafts. It was obvious that the shaft had come out so far that the metal gear wasnt running the servo gear box. I had to use a considerable amount of force on a vise to push the shaft back in, but it now is successfully moving my vents back and forth. I wonder if this was a manufacturing defect? Its been like this since I got the car at 53k miles. Whew, glad that was not a bad fix. Just gotta finish putting the dash back together :/ Thanks for the help, everyone.
