Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage
2000 Mirage warms up fine, A/C compressor kicks in but turning the dash knob to defrost wont redirect the air to the windshield
Sounds like your selector flap isn't moving. It's either mechanically of vacuum controlled. If it's mechanically controlled, there's probably a small plastic clip that has broken causing the lever that moves the flap to come loose. If it's vacuum controlled, there's most likely either a vacuum line that has either come loose, or cracked causing a vacuum leak that's preventing the flap from having enough vacuum to pull the flap where it needs to be. Either way, you'll need to take off your dash cover and access the back of your heater controls to see exactly what is going on. Once you get in there, it should be fairly easy to detect your problem. Hope this helps! Have a great day!
