If you can't get it by pulling on the cable with some pliers down at the box where the cable connects, you could drill a small hole if you know where you need it and try sticking a long hook ended pick in there to pull the door back manually, and if it worked, you would just need some good quality tape to seal the hole. The only other option is to remove the entire dashboard from the vehicle to access the heater box. I sure hope you don't have to do that. I hop this info helps...

heater core could be plugged, only way to check is to pull the heater hoses off and try to run water through it, if no water or little water then its plugged.. you would need to replace.

My 1998 Subaru Legacy defrost is stuck on defrost. None of the other control buttons (vents, floor, floor + defrost) work. This is an intermittent problem.

probably whatever you put in the cupholder has spilled on the controls causing them to stick,poor design isn't it? no real fix ,i would try to spray some silicone in between the buttons and try to free them,look into buying a unit from the junk yard, not a hard component to change at all

Is there a dip stick for the gear box oil on 1996 subaru legacy

Not sure about the legacy, but the impreza has one. I imagine its is similar if its a 2.5L. It is located close to the fire wall on the passenger side of the car. Mine has a yellow handle.
Hope this helps.
