    Pic related - found this when I was changing over to my summer tires. The 4 nipples are intact, figure I should be able to reconnect this, no? Tried to muscle back together but couldn't quite get it. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Hi Folks, So apparently, the heat over this past summer somehow lifted the padded covering that tucks up under the hard plastic dash just above the glove compartment. I plan to post pics tomorrow when it's daylight but if you have heard of, or seen this before, can anyone tell me what the best...

    2006 Eclipse GS. Original alternator lasted 12 years and had replaced 18 months ago. Got the battery light on dashboard 2 weeks ago and voltage from battery was just over 9 volts. Was able to drive to the repair shop and it was under warranty for 2 years so they replaced. Just a couple of days...
  12. Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension
    So I'm a little after the fact, :eek3: but looking to find some preferences for tires. I just ordered some 235/45-18 BF GOODRICH G-FORCE SPORT COMP 2's online and was wondering if anyone has any experience with these for strictly summer driving. I bought some 235/45R18 Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2...

    I was on I-5 Southbound about an hour outside of Los Angeles (04/13/18) and I saw this 06-08 Eclipse SE in Sunset Pearlescent :worship: . It had the SE wing on the back, an aftermarket front bumper, aftermarket headlights and taillights and a very interesting exhaust. WHOOO did I seen? I've...
  14. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Hey, I picked up a 2009 GT6 last summer and I love it.. I was driving today and noticed that clutch was slipping a bit but figured I could continue the drive and check it later.. Moments later my clutch pedal felt like it stuck down when I pressed it so I stuck my foot under it and it came up...
  15. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey guys, so far I have loved my eclipse and have had no big problems with it other then replacing the radiator. I don't know how to word this but I'm fairly new into cars and have a basic understanding of everything but some things I wouldn't even know where to look and paranoid about going to...
  16. Good Guys/Bad Guys
    Hey everyone, I found a pretty good source for parts for our cars. I was playing around, and found that these guys actually have a lot of odd things in stock for us that I haven't found elsewhere. Prices are good, and I just ordered an FX350 clutch from them. I wish I knew about them sooner...

  18. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Howdy. As some of you may know, I toasted my OEM clutch on the last drag night a few weeks back and am in need of a replacement. The car is predominantly a daily, but will see a lot of drag sessions next summer. Not exactly producing crazy power, but I need something that can take some abuse and...

  20. Problem Reports
    [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...
