Glove Box Latch
If it breaks no need to break glove Box to open


2004 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS AWD (234186Kms) Just lately my daugther kneed my glove compartement and broke the latch. Do not panic. Here is how you can open the glove box without breaking anything. Picture #1 Broken latch: When you lift this latch you will see a slit approximately 1mm by 5mm picture #2. Insert jewellers screw driver pointing strait up even if picture shows at angle; picture #3 then pull screwdriver handle towards you; picture #4 and then open sesame;picture #5. (MR979806)Brown replacement latch but in my case (MR639803) charcoal gray replacement latch (12.46$). Two #0 Philips trust head screws hold the latch in place (last picture). Hope this helps for later problems.

purge tank fault no start up

I only have 232000Kms but 5 times out of the last 6 fill-ups my Outlander would not start unless I floored it and cranked it. The first time I tought I had run out of gas and it just took a little time to reprime. But then it did it again and again and only when I refueled. I tried unscrewing gas cap for 5 minutes and putting it back on and it started fine. This is one for you expert Mitsubishi mechanics because I'm stumped. No check engine light and no codes.

So it is fine on normal start ups? It's only the first time after you've refueled that it does this?

Yes it starts A1 any other time. It just cranks and cranks after fuel-up unless I put the pedal to the floor.

check the canister...if the canister has gone bad the extra fuel vapor will make it act like its flooded

Does purge only happen at fuel-up or is this just coincidence.

i forget when purge happens on the older ones...
but if the raw fuel from fill up is getting in the canister and the system is already bad,because its not purging normally the extra fuel and vapor arent properly used...

i used to run into that on hyundais all the time...and some older mitsus

also check the fill valve in the neck..

Elm327 comes in handy and pays for itself. I just got a check engine light. Code P0441 '' Evap incorrect purge flow'' Will have to go to manual for possible solution to problem. Unless one of U guys know what it is off hand.

that means the pcm isnt see the change in purge while the evap syatem is running..
which could mean the purge valve..or the canister is bad
i cant look up the code at the moment tho...

but usually hard time filling or stalling after fill means evap problems...
so im not surprised u got a code

Old valve always open ( which explains why plenum was filling-up with fumes when filling fuel tank). Replaced Purge valve today (MR988075)( 125.57$ Cdn). Remove electrical connector, remove two 10mm screws that holds bracket to manifold, remove the two hoses, remove 10mm nut that holds valve to bracket then re-assembled with new valve. Problem solved , I reset code and went for a drive and fuel fill-up. Everything works A OK. Posted pictures of old valve so you know what it looks like. Also pictures of engine bay. Adobe & jpeg procedure for testing.

Here's a few sheets for 4G69. Not sure 2003 has a balance belt 4G64. As you can see no special tools, just a socket. Watch out for screw lenght on timing belt cover.

Cleaning this filter should not be an option since the carbon filter will lose it's full potential after a period of time. Mitsubishi recommends replacing every year. I know they are expensive but you can get aftermarket filters now at half the dealer price. I always replace mine just before pollen season and spray cooling core with fungae disinfectant. My youngest daughter suffers a lot less from allergies this way.

How to replace a dimmer or wiper switches


Hi all I Recently have to change my dimmer switch as it worn out, and i did it myself it was really so easy job and would like to share it with all and it works for both arms
Am havinh Airtrek 2004 and its right hand but sure its the same even for left hand one


You will only need a flat head and star head or cross head screw drivers


Step 1
Release the lower cover of the steering wheel (there are 3 screws holding the cover under the steering wheel) using the cross head screw driver






Step 2
Release the locking clips that holding the upper and lower covers from both sides by using the flat end screw driver















Step 3
Release the arm which control the steering wheel position so the whole wheel be movable to make it easy to remove the covers










Step 4
Lift the upper cover upward and the lower one downward










Step 5
Press the 2 clips that holding the switch and gently pull it out from the steering wheel

Place the 2 covers in position again and adjust the locks opposite to each other and lock them from both sides
