thank you scott
It is the heater control valve that is located next to your glove box the control valve has a motor atached to it take your glove box out and the lower part of the dash
then you can get to the part to replace it (Dealer item only ) around $150.00

I have a 2002 LS Galant. I had the clicking noise when I tried to turn the heat up and down. Then I had some noise when my fan was running. I noticed less air coming out of the registers. I will get to the point. I took it to a Mitsubishi Dealer. They charged me $85.00 dollars to check it out. They told me I needed and box that controls the temperature. It is under the drivers side next to the gas pedal. You can see it if you pull the piece next to your foot out from under the radio. It just pops out. You can changed the temperature and see the arm move from one position to the other. They told me I would have to also change my water hoses while they were fixing this part. The part cost about $900.00 dollars all together it was going to cost about $1900.00 dollars. I did not have them do anything.
I took the glove box out. I pulled the entire fan motor assembly out all together. When I finally got it out. I found that the entire motor and the heater coil was stopped up with insulation. They must have put the insulation on the inside of the fan box and duct assembly. When I cleaned everything the coil the fan housing out. I put it all back together. My fan works just fine now the temperature gauge works no clicking no rumbling just heat or cool air. The fan moves a lot of air now. They told me at the dealership that they had looked on there database file for anything that could cause this in my car. I can,t believe that this has not shown up on more 2002 or later galants. It was not easy getting everything out, but it can be done. Once you get it appart you will see how easy it is to put back together. It took me about 3 hours to do everything. I saved myself about $1900.00 dollars. And now it works great. I love my Galant I have had others. I put 440,000 miles on my 1992 Galant before it died on me. They are great cars. I hope this helps. Please let me know how you make out.
