Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Galant

Problem with annoying clicking noise

I have a Mitsu Galant 1998. When you turn off the recirculated air, a clicking noise begins, and it sounds like it is coming from the top of the dash, passenger side. Any ideas on what this is?

I dont know if it works the same, but I drive a 2006 Mitsu Lancer Ralliart. When you push the recirc air button, a little motor closes a little gate that blocks outside air and pulls the air from the interior instead. The blower motor is located behind the glovebox. It is secured by a couple screws.
I guess its possible that a foreign object such as a leaf or something is touching the blower motor and causing the noise.

Does it sound like the noise the turn signal makes? Does the noise change if you change the speed of the blower motor? Do all the function of the heater work (defrost, vent, floor, recirculate, fresh air, hot, cold)?

This is a motor that controls the air doors like temperature, defroster, floor air and vent air distribution. You have up to three different ones and one of them need to be replaced.

Overheating and heater blowing cold air.


Heres the answer for the clicking sound

I had the exact same problem, yes it was the heater control valve, the repair was 285.00. The tech that replaced it told me it is a common problem for the Galant. He said that if you keep your temp selector on either all hot or all cold that it keeps constant pressure on the plastic gear teeth in the valve. As they break off one by one you begin to hear that clicking noise as the dont catch. When you finally break off the last one it stops working.

According to him if you always leave the dial at least one notch from fully hot or fully cold you will not experience a failure of the switch

flap for fresh air/ recirc air have a tendancy to get stuck and thus causing the clicking noise. dont envy you on the repair as they are hard to get to.
