Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

Rear rattle hard to locate

My 2001 eclipse has a rattle in the rear that sounds like it could be coming from the spare tire well. everything in the spare tire well, and everywhere else i can visually check, is secure. it is noticeable at low speeds and almost has a 'side to side' sound to the rattle. it is also noticeable outside of the vehicle. most, if not all, of the time that i hear it is a low speeds when the rear of the car has to handle a speed bump type of suspension cycle.

    I have experienced a similar problem; a rattling, side-to-side sound, mainly in the rear driver side. I asked at the garage and they told me it's most likely the radio antenna is not wound properly and is shaking. So, to determine if you have the same problem, check by turning on the stereo. The antenna should protract and sound should stop until you turn it off.

Its your muffler hitting the bottom of your car, and also the way that our exhaust is set up is it goes above the suspension in the back so thatt might be hitting too

My honda odyssey touring does not have a spare tire. We bought this as a brand new car. The first time i had a flat tire we checked everywhere in the car even with AAA service help and we were not able to...


2005 Honda Odyssey TOURING models originally came with Michelin PAX run-flats and eliminated the traditional dough-nut spare. If your van no longer has run-flats (look at the tire size) then your van has already been De-PAX'd...count your lucky stars because PAX tires run about 300 a tire plus!!! If you have been De-PAX'd then you will need a donut spare (T135/80D17) this goes into the spare tire space located behind the 3rd row of seats. this Site has everything you will need for the spare http://www.hondapartworld.com/1534_SPARE-SHJ

Where do i find the location of the spare tire jack for my 2001 Suburban?


in my burb, the jack and all the components are in a compartment located between the 3rd row seat cupholder and the mesh/container compartment. it's kind of deep and it has a small indednt for a handle, lift that and it should pop right out, then you can undo the nut to release the jack and wheel chokes. then follow konkomados's steps to lower your spare at the back

When I drive over a bump I'm the toad a immideately hear a rattling noise come from the rear of the car??????


Look under your car for a sway bar. The ends of this bar are held by 1 bolt on each side along with plastic bushings. The swaybar should be visible hanging straight across the rear differential cover. They are subject to rust and breakage, and aftermarket parts are available. They may be also called "Swaybar links".

Check for noise from your rear seatbelts. Sometimes the ends get pushed under the seat and they rattle when the car shakes. Also check the spare tire. The jack on your spare tire can be touching the rim and will rattle. Sometimes the jacks on Crown Vics and its sister, the Grand Marquis are mounted separately behind the carpet on the passengers' quarterpanel. They are held by a twist screw and it can back off over time.

I hope my solutions help you find your problem. Thanks for using Fixya.

There is a rattling noise coming from my drivers side front tire, i have checked the lugnuts & everything seems tight?? any ideas would be appreciated.


Hard to tell without hearing it.
But you could have a pebble behind a wheel cover.
The wheel bearing could be going bad, but then you would also have some vibration through steering and brake.
The CV joint could be bad, but that would be worst on tight turns.

Is this only while driving it, or if you jack it up and spin the tire?
Does it feel loose when jacked up?
Is it hotter than normal?

Bad low speed rattle


You can also have someone drive and sit in the back seat and listen to which side it is on... Removing the seat might help you isolate the problem, while you listen. Wouldn't hurt to take stethescope or short hose along to listen. It probably is something simple as mentioned above, like myself when I couldn't find a large rattle... eventually found some loose tools in the spare tire well in the trunk. Hope this helps, Rick

How to remove the spare tire on 2001 Chevy Blazer


if the vehicles spare is located under the rear cargo area then there may be a hole located in the rear bumper next to the license plate. if the vehicle is equipped like that then there should be a few straight bars that attach together to form a long bar. this bar is then inserted into this hole and mated with a joint witch is connected to a pully system that raises and lowers the tire. if this didnt make any sense or if it is totally wrong then you could consult the owners manual. all of the necessary procedures are in that book.
