Hi guys, I want to post a thread on how to fix broken door lock actuators on Lancers and Evos from around '96 up to 2000 and other cars with the same latches. Pictures and explanation included. But I will only do so if it is going to be of any help so please read and reply if you think it's going to contribute to this site. No, I did not search the forum for an existing thread, I have an excuse: I'm lazy. ---------------------------------------
I've had several broken FRONT door lock actuator motors (latches) on lancers from the late 90's. the rear ones don't seem to break down and I've had no desire to slice one open to see the difference. These latches are extremely expensive, around 400 Euros (530 dollars I guess) and second hand ones are almost always broken too. Everybody hates aftermarket sets with the dodgy motors, bendable rods and crappy wiring schemes. original parts are the best.
There's a reason why they're so expensive: Mitsubishi decided to make the FRONT latches out of one solid cast of plastic and the REAR ones with a screw-on module. (ironically the ones that don't break.) So you have: MR264541 and MR264542 for manual locking (no actuator), 80 Euros MR264545 and MR264551 for central door locking on left hand drive cars, 400 Euros MR264543 and MR264546 for central door locking on right hand drive cars, probably the same price tag.
If you don't have CAPS or ASA, just Google the part numbers, some Russian sites have all the layouts, half of that stuff is in Cyrillic so good luck.
The actuators however are nothing more than a plastic box with 2 cogs, some contacts and a motor of around 2 bucks (yes, really) Yes these are the same motors that are used by Honda, Lexus, Toyota, Vauxhall, you name it. The Mabuchi FC-280
The fix is child's play and anyone without Parkinsonís can do this.
I have Red LED bulbs for 'map lights' in my car. Map lights are the ones just above the windshield that you turn on when, say, reading a map. They turn on when I open the doors or If I click them on. Will a cop pull me over or give me a ticket if he sees them? What about other colors like: Blue Purple Green

I have a 2001 Eclipse Spyder GS. The cloth seats are starting to get a little raggedy. I was planning on getting a set of custom fit seat covers. If I do this, I will need to remove the seat belt loop on both seats and then re-install them again when the seat covers are on. Can anyone explain or direct me how to do this?
Hey guys, so a while ago I bought some projectors and hid kit for my 97 eclipse. I just recently got the opportunity to install them which seemed easy enough. I used the old wiring harness and just did minor necessary adjustments. Theoretically everything is wired up the way it should be but when I turn on the headlights the low beams work but wont turn off when switching to high beams, which dont seem to work at all. On top of that, my dash light for high beams is always on as long as the headlights are on. I know for a fact the all the bulb work because I tried swapping the high/low beam pins in the connector. The fog lights go on and off the way they should when switching between high/low beam. The dash light also gets noticeably brighter when switching to high beams. Im sure its a very simple fix that seems too easy to be true but its just driving me crazy! Pleeeeease help!
PS I searched all over the internet for matching symptoms already without success
After finding 3/8's of an inch of bondo on my drivers side rear, I started looking around for a replacement. Can't find a remanufactured, and Mitzu quit making it a year ago. Anybody know where I can find it? looking for a 90 eclipse GSX drivers side quarter.
hi any recommendation for headroom led lights and price ? how many bulbs will be bright enough in this case? and the cheapest price range around in JB? Thanks. i am also looking for leg room light. my car is black, what color would be the wise?Blue or White?
Hi ive got a 380 the sunroof auto open does not work. To operate I have to press the open button a number of times and the sunroof only moves a few cm at a time. Ive called Mitsubishi they cant help. Ive called dealers they cant help .
I have pulled out the 20 amp fuse and the sunroof does not work so I assume this is the motor fuse. The other fuse 7.5 amp when pulled out makes bo difference. so I assume it is the fuse for the controller unit for the auto open. This is what i think is faulty. Where is the controller unit and how do I test its function. If its behind the sunroof switch panel ie the map reading lights how do you remove this to access controller.
HAVE CHANCE OF A LEATHER INTERIOR FOR MY 2000 CARISMA 1.8 GDI BUT NO SIDE AIR BAGS. MY SEATS HAVE SIDE AIRBAGS SO WILL SRS LIGHT STAY AND CAN IT BE SWITCHED OFF, OR CAN THE LEATHER COVERS FOR THE FRONT SEATS BE SWAPPED?
I have a 97 eclipse gsx with cloth interior, and am wondering does 3000gt leather seats bolt up to the eclipse seat rails? Also would the heated seats be able to be wired? I personally think the vr4 seats are sexy compared to the less supportive eclipse seats.
Hey yall, as im sure is common with all sunroofs, this thing leaks in rain,snow and every other form of water. I am just wondering what kind of things can i do to remove it completly and seal it up nice. ive reseated it and adjusted it like ten times and nothings working.
basically i hit a opossum( ran right across the road when it was pitch black out) so my front bumper or "cover" looks like crap. The paint just chipped off on the bar and my black fog light cover thing fell out too but i found it. So Im wondering what are my options are to repair this. Should i take the cover off and sand all the paint off till its just plastic and start painting or should i just buy a new bumper cover??? i found a new one cheap like 50 bucks but the shipping is insane like 100 dollars or more. Any suggestions?? thanks
i wanted to put some leds by my pedals and have 3 other tubes around the footwells. i dont want to open the hood or have to mess around with positive or negative wiring. does anyone know any good websites that sell neon or led tubes that hook up directly to a cigarette lighter. preferably one that has a control box that i can put next to the cigarette lighter or something like that? if not, ive heard that you can buy an adapter for your cigarette lighter so that it has a positive and negative wire running out of it. if i get this do i have to solder the two wires together? and if i get the adapter can i still get a control box?
I have 3 Momo pedals that i want to put on my 05 Lancer Ralliart. I havent taken a look at the stock pedals. The momo pedals have holes which need to be drilled into the stock pedals. I was wondering if the stock pedals have a rubber cover that i just remove or do I drilled over top of the stock pedals?. Also will there be any wiring connections i should be aware of when installing the new pedals? thanks
Hi There, where can I find the dash board (climate control) bulbs, 1.4 W in blue? Kragen (O'reily) has them only in white and I had to find out, they are way too bright compared to the speedo lights, etc.
Anybody has an address, maybe on ebay, or else online, where I can purchase them?
I have been looking for 2 weeks now for a Direct fit, threaded shift knob for my new short shifter. I order 2 so far after contected the companies asking them to make sure its a direct fit already threaded in the knob and not one with a plastic instert or the stupid 3 eye hold screws that most universals come with. Both times it was exactly what i told them to look for. So i find myself again looking for more. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!! i need to find one that already threaded to fit on my 2003 Eclipse GTS spyder. just like the stock shift is. I would like to find just a ball, preferably Carbin fiber to match the rest of my interior.
im thinking of removing some decals the lancer had when i bought it, I became bored with that look, so I want to remove them but I dont know if theres something that makes them easier to remove! does anyone knows?!
my big fat cousin was driving my car and im guessing he either was punching it or he hit it getting in our out but my wheel fell out of the adjustment brackets, so its literally sitting on the under-dash. has this happened to anyone? i pulled everything around it off and i cant get everything to line up anymore. its almost like my entire shaft was driven forward 2 or 3 inches. im so puzzled. ANY advice whatsoever will be appreciated because i cant drive my vehicle as-is.

Okay, im painting my car a two-toned black on top and white on the bottom. Im starting with just the hatch. What i need to know is do i need to sand it down first, if so how far and with kind of sandpaper? Thanks.
So as most of you know the 2g mitsubishi eclipse models have a nasty rattle when the window is down and you close it or even just drive. Well here is 1 useful way to fix it!
you want to roll the window down and take the door panel right off, along with the speaker and manual window scroller. I'm not going to give you a step by step - screw by screw detail because you are all grown men and are capable of doing this with ease
now once all of this is clear, look in the speaker hole to the right and you will see a brass colored piece of steel attached to the window and what should be on a metal slide which guides the window. This little brass bitch is the source of the window shattering noise when you close the door. What you want to do is take this off using a 10mm socket (the bigger the hands you have the harder this will be, so be very careful not to lose anything).
now, once this is out you need to bend in the piece that hooks onto the track, i just used a hammer and this is what it should look like. If you don't understand, I guarantee you will once you remove the piece.
now put it back in place and tighten it. With this said you can put the speaker back in place. Now, before you put the door panel on I would recommend using some sort of insulating foam on the door to seal it where the top of the door rattles. the main rattle should be fixed but the plastic door frame itself still shakes right? This is just due to poor quality.. sad to say but it's true. Just spray foam in there, being cautious of course not to make a mess of your car.
Good luck to anyone trying to fix this I hope this helped. Cheers
[B]Looking to smoke these light on this 99,been looking around and have come across two options tint or this VHT nite shade paint.has anyone else used this VHT stuff before, and how did they come out?...don't want to get stuck with some nasty ass taillights
I have a 1991 Montero 4x4 SUV. It has a cracked trim plate around the stereo, this is the factory trim plate, not one which would be purchased 3rd party to put a new stereo in. If you've ever put a new stereo in, you know that this has to be removed in order to install the new stereo. I cannot find ANYWHERE where i can purchase one. In fact, I can't find much info on my montero at all.
Hello all This is my 1st Mitsu and very impressed with it my budget got me a 2003 spacestar (dont LoL would have liked an EVO) down side the light Grey cloth seats are sh**e even if its raining you open the door and water hits it stains so two kids aswell nightmare who has these ideas lets put light cloth in a "family car" (sorry went off on one there)
so to my question
does anyone know if any of the other range of Mitsu car seats will fit straight in to a MSS
hey fellow DSMer's i need help with my eclipse, i have 95 RS i bought it with out a front bumper and accessories missing, well im piecing it back together with a blitz body kit, and its missing a support in the middle where its suppose to bolt onto, well... i dont know what its called, its got two brackets, and there is supose to be a piece in the middle below the headlights, like a thick plastic piece i was wondering if someone could give me the name of it, so i can call to local junk yards and find one.
So a couple of days ago I finally end up getting pulled over for my headlights, im running 8000k for my lowbeams. Strangely enough they were doing it during the day and were only pulling people over for headlights not speed (as i saw them indicating to people to slow down rather than pulling them over).
But anyways since im not in the mood to get pulled over again im considering to go down the k range but, as i looked at the MVA and the SAE I see no indication of what k your headlights can go up to. The officer pulled me over indicating that my headlights were "blue" resulting in my ticket. But in the regulations i see no mention of color. The only thing is i see is that cars must have only OEM lighting, which is quite silly because not all OEM lightning is the same and this does not include european cars. Various cars have different kinds of lighting systems so the only claim they should me making against me is that not because it is blue, it is because it is not stock? However, I do see that no stock car is actually running blue headlights unless its a european make. So my question really is what exactly is the allowable range, I know most companies for their HIDs run a stock 4300. So would it be safe to say to go with 4300? Plus Im assuming in order to change my 8000k to 4300k it is not the bulbs but Id have to purchase new ballasts? Basically I should be buying a new kit all together?
Okay, so I recently decided I wanted those blueish headlights I always see sometimes.
I went to my friend (who works at Pep Boys, so I thought he would know what he was talking about). He explained the difference between true HID lights, and the simple replacement bulbs that mimic the look for HID lights. I told him that I really wasn't interested in doing any modding, I just wanted blueish headlights because it seemed like they would make it easier to see at nights. He linked me to Hipro Power 5900k replacement bulbs on Ebay. I immediately ordered them, because I trusted him when he told me that they would work fine and that they were completely legal.
After that, I decided to double check just in case, but I could not really figure out if they are or not. While I was checking on that issue, I stumbled upon this. Will these bulbs have the same effect on my vehicle, or was that specific to the Kia / the particular Kia bulbs?
basically I want to know if these are illegal or not, and if they will mess up my car or not.
Hey i just wanted to know how to paint my door handles, the circular air conditioner fans, the gearbox, little stuff like that for my mitsubishi eclipse....do i just the clip them off kinda and use spray paint or something else?
