  2. 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.

    My convertible top is not opening because a steel strip connected to a microswitch is broken and needs to be replaced. The thin strip of metal about 2mm wide but when bent it needs to spring back to it's original shape. I have marked the steel strip in the image. When the latch opens the metal...

    Hey guys... I have a 4G eclipse and the trunk latch is not closing. I know why.. because it was sitting all winter and water got in on it and now it is rusted.
