    [Edit:] Despite my father telling me that a "service" manual is not the same as a "repair" manual, I see now that he is incorrect. so disregard that portion of my post, that said, I would still appreciate any advice/input to help me confirm that the issue is indeed what I think it is. Thank you...
  3. Good Guys/Bad Guys
    I'm here to rant about the dealership that sold me my 2008 Eclipse GS! At first, things were quite nice. They accepted our offer of 6k (initial price 6.75k) and they did a conditional sale too! Our conditions were: Fix squeak emitting from the engine (turned out to be the timing belt) Fix...

    I have a '06 GS, and I when I had the clutch replaced, we discovered that the source of my weird noise was not clutch related. What happens is when the clutch is engaged, there is a rattle/squeak from the transmission. When I accelerate, it gets VERY loud, and it's even gotten to the point...
  5. Part Reviews/Opinions
    I purchased a set of solid aluminum replacement door panels on ebay which I'm sure come from someone on this forum and I wanted to post my thoughts after installing them. The handles on my car were beginning to break and I decided that I wanted to replace them with something that wouldn't. I...

    Hello, I have a nasty squeak coming from the rear passenger side and am finally going to replace both struts.

  10. Problem Reports
    Hello everyone, last week I bought myself a 2009 Eclipse GS which looked pretty good and passed an inspection by a mechanic (Ontario safety test) but some gremlins are starting to come out. A few days into owning it, I'd noticed that when I'm not on the clutch pedal I get a terribly...

    squeaky axle seal??? THE CONCLUSION!!! I have a 09 GT.. I have been getting a classic squeak that sounded like brakes but acted like a wheel bearing. It is a rotational squeak that would get louder turning right and go away turning left. After going through everything I gave up and brought it a...

    So I went to get my oil changed at a Penzoil, when I was finished, I drove home. Later that day I got back in and my belt was squealing in all RPMs, but after driving it gradually got lower and lower, this is day 3 and it still has a faint squeal to it. I have checked to see if anything is...
  13. Problem Reports
    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?

    So I went driving yesterday, a little bit after rain, and while backing out of my driveway my back right wheel made a horrible squeak? Took it to the shop this morning and the guy said my rotors literally "rust" and I have to "burn" off the rust by driving? Is this a similar issue? 08 GT btw...

  17. Problem Reports
    So I know this is typical when cold starting in the middle of winter, but when I start my car, the belt on the pass side (I'm assuming its the belt that drives the alternator) would squeak until the engine was fully warmed up. One day 2 weeks ago when I looked under the hood, the alternator...

    I have a 2007 GT with the stock rotors and calipers. I got new brake pads a year ago. About a month or two ago, I started getting pretty bad brake squeal whenever I lightly braked. If I pressed down harder, it would stop. I finally took my car in for a brake inspection yesterday. They said...
  19. Problem Reports
    So, a couple months ago I started getting a squeak that was only noticeable when I had the window down at the drive-thru. It has gradually gotten louder and I'm not sure what it is. When I am in drive or park with the car stopped it is the worst. If i am sitting still and give it a little gas...
