    Parts manufacturers fiercely compete for the limited shelf space. Sometimes a part manufacturer will even agree to buy up all a chain store's existing inventory if the chain store agrees to switch to the part manufacturer's brand. The part manufacturer then is in the awkward position of owning a...

    Hi all, 10 years ago when I bought my eclipse (3.8L V6) I had an Eibach lowering springs/kit installed. I just recently broke the rear passenger spring. The mechanic said I'd have to make sure to get the same size replacement spring. The problem is I can't remember the size of the springs...

    First time Eclipse owner. bought an 07 Spyder GT with only 16,000 km (10,000) miles. Even though it's 12 years old it looks like new. First time convertible owner as well. So far so good. Tons of fun to drive. Parked now for the winter (Manitoba, Canada) but I'm working on a few things for...

    Car is getting a new clutch and flywheel come spring. Figured since the brake fluid will need to be bled to do the work, it might be a good time to replace it entirely. There are 129k kilometers on the fluid and it's starting to look quite dark. Car will be used predominantly for weekends and...

    Hey everyone, I really hope you can help me out. A few days ago, I started noticing a metallic squealing noise whenever the car was in motion. I found out that the brake hardware on the rear passenger wheel was hitting the heads of the wheel studs. The hardware I'm referring to is the pin and...

    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...

    I'm looking to upgrade my clutch to a Clutchmasters FX250 in the spring time. Anyone in the Toronto or GTA area had any transmission work done at a shop they would recommend? Dealership already quoted ~$1000 of labour, definitely not trying to spend that kind of money on labour.

    Looking to flush and refill my transmission oil in the spring. I've got 123k kilometers on the original fluid, hoping it can smooth out my (at times) notchy shifting. Are there any high rated brands/products besides OEM, and how much do I need to buy to fill?
