SOURCE: Loud clicking noise from dash whenever heat

I have and 2002 with rear air and had the same noise and problem in the back. There is motor in the back that moves a flapper door open and closed to blend the hot and cold. The motor has plastic gears in it and they strip out making a clicking noise when the motor cannot hit the point that the heat control dial is being set too. Probably the same set under the front dash. You will more than likely need to by a new motor assy.

Sounds like the blend door actuator needs to be replaced. It controls the air tempature from the vents and is mostly plastic. They break often.

My a/c was working fine. I put the heat on and then went back to the a/c and it will not blow cool now. It did make some clicking noises in the dash while the heat was heating up but now it will not b


Your vehicle is now very old and will develop such issues. The blend door is operated by a vacuum motor, and may get stuck if in need of lubrication or if there is a vacuum leak under the dashboard (especially if your automatic brake release is leaking vacuum... very common issue).
Check for vacuum leaks, and lubricate the blend door (behind the glove compartment).

I have a 2002 Galant. Air works fine, but when I switch cold/hot switch to hot it does not work. Once in awhile when the switch is turned to hot you can hear clicking noise. Like a door is closing or...


There is an electric motor that turns heater core on and off. It's located under the dash to the left of the glove box. Some disassembly required. The part will cost about $120 to $180. part number is #MR958603. I saved money by purchasing it on line. It is a stocking part at most Mitsubishi dealers. Once you pull the glove box out and remove the bottom half of the dash all the way across, you should be able to gain access to the motor to replace it. Caution: if you do not put everything back in correctly and tie/tape it all back down carefully in the correct places you will have lots of under the dash noises when you are done.

Heat selector malfunction


Where is the clicking noise coming from, the engine compartment or the dash panel? Probably not the heat selector switch, so I'm willing to bet the thermostat is sticking and not opening, which is lesding to you not having heat and the clicking noise you are hearing. Replace the thermostat.
