cant turn off the heater

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The heater in my old hi ace delivery van is stuck on heat and i cant turn it to cold. i can slide the lever across to cold but the air still comes out hot. I have to put the a/c on just so I don't cook. How do I access the valve so I can turn it off manually, Richard
