I dug deeper and sure enough the top hinge pin was broken. I'm guessing the foam wore off the door, exposing the adhesive which then stuck the door to the housing. After a period or time the hinge pin failed.
I'm not a big fan of pulling the entire dash assemblies out of cars. They never seem to go back in as well as the factory installation. My plan is to replace the door without pulling the heater housing. It's worth a try. I'll let you know if I succeed.
