Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
When turning the tempature control knob from cold to hot, it stopped about half way and will go no farther, then finally broke.
There's a white lever under the dash near the steering wheel. You can change from heat to cold with that instead of the knob! If you look under there you'll see it and just push it up for heat pull towards yourself for cold.

There is a buletin or some sort of thing that Mitsubishi released, and it outlines, what you have to change. The reason why it gets stuck is because 03 Lancers don't have filters on the blower motor inside the car. What you need to get is a some sort of mechanism for the white box that houses your heater core, you can actually see if you look under your steering wheel. Then you have to get a new cable since the one you have it's bent, and in order to keep this from happening you might want to get a filter as well, all you have to do is remove the glove box door, pop the plastic open and just insert the filter. But anyhow, im not a mechanic and im not 100% on what the things are called, but i talked to Mitsubishi and they told me what i needed, and then i actually went online and bought for there for half the price and installed it myself, works like a charm. hope it helps.

Replace the knob and check if there is something that's obstructing the turn

If replacing the linkage does not solve the binding problem, Mitsubishi technical service bulletin # 005-55-003 states that the blend door assembly inside the heater box is binding and needs replacing. This will require removal of the refrigerant from the A.C. and removal of the dash in order to remove the heater box. Not a job for the average DIY'er. I will be replacing the blend door assembly and the cam and linkage kit on my son's 2003 Lancer next weekend, but I am an auto repair tech with 38 yers experience.
