Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander

2 Answers

I need to replace a brake light on my 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander. We've removed the two obvious screws but are still facing resistance on the other side of the cover. Should I just pull the unit off? There's so much plastic, I'm afraid I'll break something. Thanks

Remove the 2 screws and carefully pull the entire housing straight toward the rear to pop loose the 2 plastic hooks, which pop back into the metal holes on reassembly of housing.

Sometimes they would be sideways. the screws just hold them in order not to move and they do have plastics hooks that still hold it tight to the metal housing. slowly slide them sideways and see if they would come off.

How do i change out my thermostat?

Mitsubishi Outlander 2003-06

Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive battery cable.
    CAUTION Wait at least 90 seconds after the negative battery cable is disconnected to prevent possible deployment of the air bag.
  2. Drain the engine coolant.
  3. Remove the air cleaner assembly.

    Fig. Exploded view of the air cleaner assembly
  4. Remove the battery and battery tray.
  5. Matchmark the installed positions of the hose and hose clamp, then disconnect the lower radiator hose from the water inlet fitting.
  6. Detach the control hose electrical connection.
  7. Remove the control wiring harness connection bracket.
  8. Unfasten the retainer(s), then remove the water inlet fitting.
  9. Remove the thermostat.

    Fig. Exploded view of the thermostat mounting

To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure, noting the following:

    Install the thermostat so the jiggle valve is facing straight up. Be careful not to fold or otherwise damage the rubber ring.

    Fig. The thermostat-s jiggle valve must be facing up, at the 12 o-clock position during installation
    Refer to the fastener tightening specifications shown on the accompanying illustration. During installation of the lower radiator hose connection, insert the hose as far as the projection of the water inlet fitting. Align the matchmarks on the hose and hose clamp, then connect the hose.

    Fig. Insert each hose as far as the projection of the water inlet fitting. Make sure to align the matchmarks before connecting the hoses
    Fill the engine with the proper type and amount of engine coolant.
  2. Connect the positive, then the negative battery cables, then start the engine and check for leaks.

Want to replace my own front brakes on 2003 outlander. cannot find detailed repair instructions anywhere. any ideas? thanks!

Hello, to replace the front pads first open the hood and remove the brake fluid cover (will make retracting the piston easier). Next losen the lug nuts till you can turn them by hand than jack up the vehicle and use a jack support stand. Once the vehicle is supported remove the lug nuts and wheel, remove the lower caliper screw and rotate the caliper upward. Remove the old pads, use one of the old pads and place it so it centers the caliper, using a large C-clamp position it with the solid end on the back side of the caliper and rotating handle contact the pad in the center or close as possible. Slowly rotate until the piston is fully retracted into the caliper, your brake fluid may run over but its ok. Install the new pads return the caliper to the normal position over the pads reinstall the lower caliper screw. Put the wheel back on tighten the lug nuts till the wheel is evely and firmly in its normal position. Remove the jack stand lower the vehicle, put the brake fluid cover back on and pump the brakes until they are firm and check the fluid, add some if needed. Tighten the lug nuts, check for leakes. After starting the vehicle pump the brakes a few times, now the fun part the test drive :) allow you self more than normal distance to stop. Tips, I always set the parking brake when working on the front brakes, some people use a 2x4 instead of a brake pad to retract the piston into the caliper, double check your work, i always do and take your time.

What kind of rear breaks do I need on my 2003 mitsubishi outlander

The rear brakes are the same drum & brake shoe type.
Each rear wheel has a brake drum that rotates with the wheel. When the brakes are applied, a brake shoe is forced into contact with the brake drum to slow wheel rotation...........................sodeep

I need to take off my headlight on my 2003 outlander, How do I do this>

To do this safely you need to remove the bumper.
The headlight has 3 10mm bolts holding it on.
If you remove the one vertical screw from back edge of the bumper and the plastic fasteners across the top, you can usually pull the bumper far enough away to sneak the headlamp out, just be cautious of your paint.
