Air Recirculation Flap???

I have two Meganes, a 99' V Reg Hatchback & a 00' W Reg Cabriolet.

Both have the same air recirculation flap knocking noise when I turn them on.

I've seen a solution to the problem on a Megane review on the ciao website.

"Air recirculation flap went on 23K miles – somehow this dislodged itself from the motor and has not been able to retain it’s position since. There was a change in design in the year 2000. DEALER FIX : change out the airbox….a LOT of work! Cost £450.

MY SOLUTION: I just held the flap in the constantly open position with some wire, I never use recirc mode anyway cost 5p."

Could someone explain how I would - hold the flap in the constantly open position with some wire???

Thanks in advance
