    The servo motor could be stuck. There are threads and things on here already for it. Have a search.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Fixed it myself

    It was the air mixer flap motor that wasnt working, took it to bits and greased all the cogs, put it back together and i now have cool air!

    I would recommend trying this your self before you go to a dealer.

    You need to unscrew the 5 torx screws that hold the whole glove box in place ( 3 at top, 2 at the bottom). Once you have done that you need to remove the side panel to the right of the passenger side footwell(more torx screws) once you have done that you will see how to do the rest, there is another 2 torx that hold the motor unit in place. I removed the unit completely and then stripped it.

    Im normally quite shy with this sort of thing ( i work in a call center lol ) and found it a doddle
