  1. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hi all, I had a steel brake line corrode through on my 07 GS. I've paid a premium to a shop to have them all replaced but they've done kind of a sloppy job with the routing in the engine bay and I'm planning on taking it back to be rectified. Stupid me didn't take "before" pictures of the...
  2. Automotive For Sale/Wanted
    I'm in the middle of a balancing act between upgrading my 09 GS Spyder and surviving Coronavirus destroying the restaurant industry I work in. If anyone is willing to cut me a deal on RRE Headers, RRE Underdrive Pulley, Megan Coilovers, Wheels, Halo Headlights, or possibly exhaust parts...

  4. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey guys, I need some advice on what could be causing this. 2006 GT: I put on new shocks and struts last year (OEM, and yeah, that cost a lot more than aftermarket but I liked the original ride). I put new brake rotors and pads, and replaced failing front right caliper. I replaced the 17"...
  5. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Alright so my hood latch broke last week, and I am unable to find a replacement anywhere that ships to Canada. Was wondering on people's thoughts of installing Locking hood pins in its place. Hood is the OEM steel hood not a carbon fiber or Fiberglass.
  6. Do It Yourself Guides (Howto)
    Hey all, I have been trying to open the hood for two days. I have cut out the upper grills so I have full access to the hood latch assembly. I have seen people saying use a screwdriver to get leverage, however I do not know where to put it and in which direction to put the force. I also...

    I got an all white 08 Eclipse GS back in August or so, and now that I've come to get used to my car, the more small things I want to add/change. I want to make my car a bit more aggressive without looking like a ricer, and without breaking bank. I've heard the GS doesn't have very many things...

    I havent been on the forum for quite a while but I thought I'd drop my ride and where it is at the moment from where i was about a year ago. Black headlights and taillights, projector style eyelids, RTX R-Spec Zeniths, R1 Concepts drilled and slotted rotors, GodSpeed MonoSS Coilovers, Injen CAI...

  10. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Welp, after 220k miles with just routine oil changes and maintenance it decided it had enough. A few months after I gave it a fresh tune up too. Driving to work on Friday, It all of a sudden started mis-firing and knocking bad. I immediately pulled into a parking lot and as soon as my foot...

    Looking to dress up under the hood. The stock hood support rod is rusty and seen a couple of photo's of what appears as a custom support rod. Doing a search resulted in zero hits and basically down to asking you guys what the field is doing. 09 Eclipse GS

  16. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hi Folks, I have been a 4G GS owner since 2006 and was on the forum way back then. The car has never been back to the shop as I do all my own maintenance. I need to get the brake recall done, but that's another story. I just had my timing belt break on the way to work the other day and of...

    The Eclipse has been my dream car since I first tricked it out on Need for Speed :naughty:. I finally went ahead and bought my 2010 Eclipse GS-Sport this past December; I've been working on it non-stop since then. It's gotten to the point where I think it's dope enough for me to start a build...
