Dont know what Bingo you have but on mk2's if you have too much in the glovebox items can fall out when its closed into the heater assembly and jam the flap. Or as I found out with a plastic takeaway fork fall in the fan and make a god awful noise.

Solved, managed to price control housing off, pull the back of mechanism off, free the control knob, click back together, hey presto, it works, all wiring now taped into a loom to prevent further issues
