Vent/Climate Control Problem

For the past 20,000km I've been experiencing intermittent issues with my front two center vents. It began as an occasional clicking noise coming from the vent an dash area. Then the two center vents became weaker and eventually stopped expelling air. This would come and go. Just recently the two center vents stopped working entirely. All other vents are working properly and blowing cold AC air or warm air as desired.

While the vents were still working intermittently, I mentioned and demonstrated the issue to the service technician. He told me that it was normal for the center vents to be weaker than the others. He also failed to replicate the issue according to my service records.

Anyone have a experience with this issue? Some brief research tells me it is most likely the vent actuator. Would this be a difficult DIY repair? My concern is that they will no try and charge me for the repair although this was mentioned and documented on service records prior to the expiration of my warranty.

From previous experience on other cars, job isn’t hard but space is tight.....that’s the hard part

Oh, and not dropping the screws
