Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The blend door is inside the box where the air flows from outside into the car. The air goes through the air conditioner first, then it goes to the blend door. When the door is open, the air will then go thru the heater and get hot. When the door is closed, the cold air will come out the vents. In this way, the blend door controls how much air goes thru the heater. When you are running the A/C, you want the blend door closed. If your a/c compressor is working but you are not getting cold air, the blend door may be stuck open.
My book shows your blend door is behind the glove box. It also says your door is controlled by a cable. What you should do is look behind the glove box to see what happens when you change the temperature on the panel. It should move a cable behind the glove box that turns a lever on the door. The cable should turn the lever as far as it will go. If it doesn't do that, it is either broken or needs to be adjusted. It may have slipped out of it's clamp. To adjust, loosen the clamp, turn the knob to cold, and push the door fully closed, then tighten the clamp.
Let me know if it doesn't look like what I'm saying or if you have other questions.
