Unfortunately, it's been so long ago he can't remember the part and we no longer have the receipt to check on the part number. He only recalls how much work it was removing the entire dash just to get to this tiny piece and that the piece he replaced was no bigger than a pencil eraser. Sorry we can't be of more assistance. Good luck!

It may be a faulty blend door or control for the blend door (I believe they are electric on this car, but not positive). But before you tear out the dash, check your coolant level. It's possible your coolant is low enough that it won't always go through the hoses to your inside radiator that delivers heat to the cabin..... Seen it before. And you'd better hope I'm right, cause that's very cheap. The other possibilities are not.

Go to this site. I just fixed mine a few weeks ago. This is great step by step instuctions. The problem is the blend door actuator. I bought mine off ebay for $41. The model is a DORMAN 604-202 (at least that is the one for the 2002, go to the dorman website and look yours up).

Here's what's happening with mine. If I turn the heat all of the way up and leave the fan speed on low, then I'll get continuous, mostly hot air, which doesn't do much on really cold days. If I turn the fan speed up then the air gets cooler. Also, the temperature knob is hard to turn. I've checked under the glove box and all door mechanism seems to be functioning correctly.
Last year I would have to accelerate as fast as possible to get the heater working good enough. This year that doesn't do anything and the temperature gauge never goes above the halfway mark.

I would first check for low coolant in your system, radiator and bottle. It could be low.

I've had both of those topped off for at least 6 months
