Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant
Clicking sound! laoud at first then when i turn down the temp knob it goes lower..help me please...how do i find this componet....
This is an expensive problem primarily because of the labor involved. A local shop with a very good Better Business Bureau rating charged me nearly $500. The part itself cost about $150, the rest was labor because of what had to be disassembled to get to this part. There are no Mitsubishi dealers in Tucson any more, so the part had to be shipped from Phoenix. The problem will only get worse, as mine started as a clicking only when temp knob was turned all the way to the cold side. After a few months it became a constant, loud clacking.

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
