  1. Problem Reports
    Wife's car, especially in the heat of the summer, throws the occasional "Check Engine Soon" light. Normally I check the code, then clear it and all is well, I attribute it to a computer glitch or some anomaly. But this time while she's driving the A/C stops working, Speedo stops working...

    This is my stock 2009 passenger side headlight up for sale. It will fit on any Eclipse submodel 2006-2012. The only modification done to it was some VHT Niteshades on the blinker in order to achieve a blacked out look while still having good visibility at night. This can be removed with Goof Off...

  6. Automotive For Sale/Wanted
    Like the title says...I'm trying to find some aftermarket headlights that are a bit broken. The lens can't be cracked, but oxidation/clear peeling is fine. I also don't care if the halos or LEDs inside are busted. The main thing is the housing and lens not being cracked, lol. Let me know!

    So I'm sure this topic has been beaten to death, but a quick search on the forums came up with few results. My wife's Eclipse (for which I earlier today posted a quick fix for the fuel door oxidation removal using Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser) had a very bad case of headlight oxidation. The car...
