Bloody Climate Control

Well guys i really need some help here.

The climate control on my fairmont ghia is kinda shagged.
I turn on the dimistor and sometimes it goes through the dimister and sometimes the other way around. Also does it vice versa for hitting the normal air flow buton "Auto".

I went to my mechanic and he said it was the heater flap. Well
that isnt it , what is causing it to change settings randomly?. Is it the climate control box or what?.

I am stumped any suggenstions are more than welcomed.

I would have thought it was the climate control box right away. Maybe see if you can get another one cheaply and give it a try?

Also, have you done a self-test on it?

Sound like the door that changes from demist to interior is stuck or broken; i.e. the screen/floor flap or the vacuum line (or solenoid) that works it might have a leak (or not be working).

I don't think that it will be the climate control box. These are fairly reliable. I think that it will more likely be the screen/floor flap as mentioned above. Mine was broken so I never had any demisting.
Yours could be broken or just stuck. Or maybe one of your vacuum hoses is loose?

No; it's the box on the extreme left with a square hole at the bottom big enough to put your hand in
