Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Montero

1 Answer

1996 Mitsubishi Montero tail gate fell off its hinges.

I've had to lift up on the tail gate for the past year to get it to close properly. Last night, it would not shut at all. I looked at it this morning in the light and found that its hinges have come apart. I do not see a pin or pin hole to reconnect it. Even if I get it realigned, I don't know how to keep it in place. Any suggestions?

Lift gate suction stopped working, any ideas?


It can be faulty switch or its issue with lift gate latch. Its got stuck up hard or cracked inside. It has to be inspected. -----------

Also if its vacuum operated that blockage in vacuum lines or vacuum motor issue.

Mitsubishi Endeavor 2004. 1. the tail gate and the tail gate glass do not open 2. the AC drains into the driver flooring instead of draining outside to the ground. Why? And where is the output drain...


The door and the glass just needs some penetrating lubricant( WD 40 ), just a few squirt will do on hinges and locks!
The drainage hose would be under the passenger side( RiGHT FRONT SiDE) glove box, look down there, u will see a black hose from the center that houses ur A/C & heater housing! Lift up ur floor covering to see it clearly. check and clean the hose it might already been clogged by moss and dirt or dislocated thru the drain holes on the flooring! Hope that helps out! Taah!

Where is the hose for the rear window washer on my 2002 Chev Blazer?


The hose runs along the frame and up through the tail gate on the two piece tail gate, on the single lift gate the hose runs from the top where the hinge's is located that hold the lift gate. Common for the host to crack there, causing it to leak before it goes out to the wipers. Good luck and hope this helps.

How to remove a spare tire in a 2001 montero sport


Assuming your spare is underneath & not on the tail gate; do the following: remove the plate on top of your rear bumper & you will see a steel nut. Take your spare tire wrench or a socket & rachet & unscrew that baby until you feel that tire on your foot!

1996 Isuzu Rodeo stuck tail gate


Remove the interior trim panel which will not be easy since the gate is up ---- you can then access the lock mechanism and will probably find a bent linkage rod or a broken plastic retainer clip.
