SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement

Hi Paul,

The routing diagram is under the hood.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

Sure sounds like a blend air door problem. The rotary temperature knob moves a cable that moves the blend air door. There is a bushing in the housing that likes to break and will either leave the door closed no heat or open heat when a/c is on. TSB 8506-01 covers this problem.
A/C - Can't Adjust Temperature Output Control

Affected Vehicles
Condition
HVAC, Temperature Output Control Cannot Be Adjusted
Customer states cannot adjust temperature and/or A/C is not cold.
Technical Background
The blend door control lever moves freely, but the blend door does not operate.

A bushing that fits on the lever may have a broken tab/clip, -arrows-, as shown.
This tab/clip may cause the bushing to fall out of the fresh air housing which can result in the door becoming inoperative and result in undesired air temperature.
Production Solution
No production change required.
Service Procedure
Tip:
In the past the entire fresh air housing was replaced because the bushing was not available as a separate part. The bushing is now available as a separate part.
The bushing can be accessed from under the center console.

^ Remove the panels near the foot wells at the passenger side of the console, -arrows-, as shown.
See Repair Manual, Body-Interior, Repair Group 68 - Interior Equipment for removal procedure.

^ This will expose the location of the control lever, -arrow-, as shown.

^ Re-bolt a new bushing onto the lever, -arrow-, as shown.
^ Re-insert the bushing with lever onto the blend door until it is firmly secured in the housing.
Tip:

A mirror can be used to aid in identifying the orientation of the blend door when re-securing the bushing in the fresh air housing, -arrow-, as shown.
^ Reinstall panels.

Hope you are good at working in tight spots and with mirrors. I just did this job 2 weeks ago. It took 1 hour and was really a pain in the B==t working upside down with a mirror through a 1 inch hole. Hope this helps and Good Luck Happy New year and thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: How do I replace the heater/AC control knob

Remove the instrument panel trim plate. Remove the HVAC control mounting screws, and pull the unit out untill you can get to the retainers. Remove the old knob, and install the new one. Reverse the above sequence and reassemble. When reinstalling, make sure that you didn't accidently loosen an electrical or vacuum connection.

hI THEGROVE45, did you ever get this problem fixed. I have the same problem, and took it into the dealership, they told me they would have to replace the whole unit, and told me the light inside there was not a light bulb but a wand lit up with LED.

Flat battery every morning even though I make sure all accessories are off, heater fan not turning off all the time when ignition off


With hot battery, turn all off, wait 10 minutes and then feel of all relays to see if one is warm or hot. Stuck relay can cause this.

2003 mitsubishi climate control stuck


Follow the cable.. It's the white piece that the cable connects to. Some kind of spring doesnt push the white piece forward far enough to select a hot temperature. You can adjust it yourself from the driver's seat at a red light. It feels like flat lever against the dash/transmission tunnel. Push forward for heat, pull back for AC. There's a spring busted or something and the knob can't overcome the required force... Just manipulate it manually. You can see the white lever mechanism clear as day if you open the driver's door, crouch down and look for the big white piece. My guess is that it has a internal tensioner or spring that crapped out.

2003 mitsubishi outlander temperature control knob would get stuck while turning..and finally snapped off and broke


The source of the problem is not the knob it is the temp blend door binding. Putting to much stress on the knob. If you replace just the control head with the knob it will only break again. You need a dampener repair kit and to install you will have to remove the dash and heater core.this will slow you to access the door that is binding. Hope this was more help then it broke replace it.

Rear seat on 2003 outlander is stuck in the down position how do i get it to the up position?


http://outlander.net.ru/Vitaly/CHASSIS/03/all_of_car.pdf

I have the same problem. Finally found this repair manual on line.
Pages 52A-27 & 28 give a break down of the seat.
The reclining knob is broken #23. It engages the reclining cable #31.
Look closely at the underside of the knob to see if part of it is broken off and this will indicate we share the same problem.
I've always let go off the knob when reclining the seat, but in the future, I'll be slowly releasing it.

Tempature control knob


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.
