  1. Problem Reports
    Hey everyone! My factory keyfob barely works on my car. The light blinks when I click the buttons on it, but there is maybe a 1/20 chance that it will actually unlock/lock the doors or pop the hatch. Had to click the hatch button on the keyfob about 25 times for it to actually pop open, and I...

    Is there any replacement for the entire piece, the whole thing that goes across the hatch? I'm trying to De-chrome my car and that looks to be the most challenging part. I'm willing to take it apart if I have to, but, Id rather just replace it. :ndance:

    Had the hatch open and realized that all the clips that hold the rear bumper to the car and the cover piece were missing. I looked online and they are expensive for plastic, around $1.50 a piece. So I opened up all the holes by 1-2mm and you can use the same clips that are used on the front bumper.

    I have a 06 with approximately 70K miles on it. The car has not been driven often for the last year or so, and I do not have the time to invest in bringing this back up to speed. I'm open to working out an offer, as I need to get rid of this rather quickly. asking $3,500 located in eastern...

    Has anyone ever weight the CF hatch and hood vs the stock hatch and hood? Want to know if there's any difference in weight and if it's worth buying.

    Hey guys, just bought an 06 GT manual a few weeks ago, I'm loving it so far but it does have some details that I want to work out. Firstly, the dome lights/hatch lights don't turn on when I open the doors or the hatch. The dome lights work if I click them on but I can't figure out how to have...

    Heads up to anyone with a floppy rear hatch :shock: Just put 2 of these on my car and they are great, you raise the the hatch 12-18 inches and it lifts it the rest of the way. No more decapitation threat!
  8. Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension
    I have searched for this with no definitive answer. I have put the front springs and struts on. I started with the rear and noticed that I could only find 2 top bolts in that little hatch. Where is the third bolt located at? Any help would definitely be appreciated! :headbang:

    :timja: Hai! :timja: Figured it was time to start my own progress thread. Won't be too exciting for a while, but I'd like a place to track my own progress, and if anyone else finds some entertainment or enjoyment out of my stuff then it's a win-win :) -----------------------------------------...

    So I'm mostly making this thread to not receive the ban hammer within my first 30 days as I believe those are the rules around here. :doh: I'm new to Mitsubishi and the Eclipse platform, but definitely not new to cars, car forums, or the "scene". God I hate that word lol. My most recent car...

    Gonna be taking my car to the drive in, and plan to set up camp in the trunk with the hatch open. Problem is, with the hatch open the lights come on. Does anyone have a simple way to disable that? Eg, to screw with the switching mechanism. Otherwise I'm gonna have to pull the bulbs

    Does anyone know what the plastic piece is called thats in the hatch and has the rope on it, and when you raise the hatch it comes up with it? Is it like a cargo cover or something?
  13. Problem Reports
    My keyless entry works flawlessly 99% of the time. Occasionally, it will stop working. Most of the time the open function will not work, but at the same time the lock and hatch will work. Sometimes the lock won’t work, however the hatch will. I have two key fobs, both have new batteries...

    Anyone know what year Mitsubishi stopped putting trim around the hatch window?

    So I have a 8 LED mini bar I wanted to mount in the hatch to replace the OEM light in the hatch. I tested the LED bar on my battery and it works. I took the OEM light bulb and harness out and connected the wires to my new LED bar and it is as if I am only getting 5% power from the power wire...

    After college my grandad buys the guys in my family a car. I'll probably be the last one to do so, and my cousin just got himself a top trim 2015 Accord out of this. I was planning on going with the Evo, but now they are discontinued :mecry: I know I can just buy an older one, but when the...

    I would like to remove the dirt from the inside, without damaging the clear plastic. Any ideas??
  19. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    06 GT 75K. I installed new KYB shocks and Tein Luxury Master springs front and rear. Took a test drive and the fronts felt good but the backs were banging around. I drove back home and opened the hatch. On one side the shock had busted through and the other side was on its way! The mount...

    I traded my 2013 Dodge Avenger for a 2012 Eclipse. I've always liked the looks of these cars and decided to take the plunge at the ripe age of 47. I really love the sound when you start the car and it drives really well. The only questions I have 1. Where is the trunk/hatch release? 2. Do these...
