Question about Lincoln Town Car
You will need to first disconnect battery ground cable and then remove the instrument panel (the hardest part of this job because it takes some time to get everything off) After you do that, you will need to remove four A/C electronic blend door actuator retaining screw and then remove the A/C electronic blend door actuator.

If you remove the door panel you will have a hard time seeing the actuator. The actuator is installed using rivets so they don't hit the door when closed. If you can do this you will be very lucky as most professionals dread this work. The edges re VERY RAZOR SHARP so put tape - lots of tape over the edges before putting your hands in the door.
Put the window all the way up and shine a flash light inside the door - you will see the actuator. Before you try removing it - be sure to spray it with WD40 - tap on it with a hammer and also try to pull the unit up and down with pushing the window control. ALSO - be sure to check the electrical connections and wires. Sometimes the wires get skewered going through the harness. Also be sure the switch is good before replacing. If you decide to replace it yourself please - get the instructions FREE from a dealer. Give them your VIN # and they will give you pictures and also schematics that I don't have the ability to share here.
Best of it.

Air Temperature Control Blend
Door Failure No Heat
In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6235876-no_heat_fan_blowing_cold_air . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.
Your blend door actuator is above the accelerator pedal. See picture below.
