Evo IX no heat.

My evo IX doesn't produce any hot air. The air con works fine and blows cool, but when I turn the heat up nothing changes.
Is this going to be the controls or the actual heater?

Thanks

I had this same problem on my 9 I think you will find its a little rid that comes off down in the drivers foot well to the left of the clutch pedal. If you turn the heat knob you should see the little motor pulling a plastic arm this little arm pops off hope this helps

Thanks fella. It's the white hammer type part, its sticking, once you give it a nudge it moves fine. Going to lube it up and see if that works.

Hi guys, i have the same problem, which Rich at RG helped me with before and fixed it but now theres no heating again.

Can anyone circle which bit im meant to give a nudge?
It moves when i turn the heater control knob (how i'd like it to blow lol)
But not when i turn the heating one from cold to hot!

Its the part further down and to the right, a bit 'T' shaped white bit of plastic, along side the clutch pedal. That's the one that was sticking before.

Hope the necro bump is ok, but having trouble finding the plastic arm talked about here. I've got a Jap import IX, would this be any different?

Had heater issue about a year or two ago also , it was this control arm sticking/skipping on the cog wheel that opens the blend door no doubt

I replaced with another arm but didnt change until i manipulated it ...
same problem returned again few months back and i tried a replacement heater control unit but still hit n miss with hot and cold selection ...
Only this last week i sorted it with finding its the control arm again the issue ....DIY bodge sorted it
