Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
There is a technical service bulletin for this problem.(tsb# 05-55-003) The blend door inside the heater box is binding and needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, the dash has to be removed and the a.c. refrigerant removed in order to remove the heater box.
I already have purchased the blend door and the linkage for my son,s 2003 Lancer. I will be doing the job in about a week.
I am a professional auto repair tech with 38 years experience. I would not recommend doing this job yourself unless you are pretty good with auto repair work.

Remove the knob and check it...sometimes the inner metal part breaks...use a plier to turn it...if it does work....replace the knob

You have to pull the control knobs off the panel they should come right off. mine did then you can take the 2 screws out. there is a storage area right below your ac controls and ther are 2 screws for on the top of this. Remove them then you can remove this portion of the dash and access your control module. be carefull not to damage the connections when removing this module. they are plastic and not very well designed. I had this problem with my Lancer and found out ther hard way good luck.
