  2. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So yea, I noticed my outer boot on the passenger side had a small rip in it and the grease was out. I duct taped the hell out of it for now.

  6. Problem Reports
    So, after being gone all summer in Virginia (i.e. being unable to work on my car), I finally got back under my car to hunt down the source of a power steering leak I developed out there. Fortunately, the leak has stopped and I can't locate where it ever came from. Unfortunately, I discovered my...

    There is condensation water i our 2007 GS passenger side tail light -presumably there is a gasket or glued joint that is no longer tight.

    Daughters 06 (with 65000 miles) front left wheel started squeaking on left turns. Goes away when braking. Sounded a little like brake wear sensor so I replaced pads. Didn't help. Sounds like a wheel hub or cv joint noise. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Where should I look next?
