might be better to upgrade the monitor with an after maket unit

I asked about how to remove trim over windshield. My question should be can the outside trim over windshield be reused after removing to stop windshield leak.

I don't know about your Mitsubishi but generally windscreen trim is laid loose around the screen and theoretically can be reused. In practice the windscreen adhesive bead usually spreads and catches the trim in places effectively placing an element of doubt over the fact.
If a new trim isn't readily available or is prohibitively expensive, as long as care is taken to leave the visible part undamaged when cutting out the old screen or removing the trim the windscreen adhesive is so good it will bond even damaged trim and can be held securely.

One problem with reusing trim is when attempting to refit it will often be found to be too short. Contaminants from the atmosphere and UV exposure does tend to alter the properties of plastic. Once the trim has been removed shrinkage can sometimes be severe and rapid.

Windscreen water leaks should be none-existent with bonded screens but when windscreens must be replaced the fitters usually manage to scratch the paintwork in the screen recess and have no time or will to repaint. The adhesive bead rarely covers the exposed steel and as the trim is not designed to keep water out rust soon begins to attack and eventually destroys part of the windscreen bond and even sometimes eats through the steel into the windscreen pillar or roof.

Losing water from radiator and expansion tank every other day on my nissan x trail 2002 model 2lt petrol

Have to stop using it if ANY coolant leaks from Anywhere

I just replaced a cracked & leaking plastic tank on a Lincoln

I got them from a dealer not some thin aftermarket piece

Two were no good & that is the first time in 50 years, in the
business I had to do a job 2 1/2 times & tie up a vehicle for
5 weeks

That said I have 2014 Nissan Frontier-no issues yet

I suggest you be specific here

The expansion tank,degas bottle,coolant overflow,are all the
same thing as I had to deal with in Oct

They can & do get hard & crack after ten years & it apparently
is not all the uncommon,just never saw many myself

If that is leaking you would see it and replace it,(dealer part only)

2002 vehicle-you have to tell us & look yourself

Does the radiator leak?
If so replace it,it is not serviceable & is what
you will have to also replace
It is 13 or 14 years old & near done anyway

I just lost power in a snow storm here & still have your
question & now the other responses

I got thinking differently then they did

These questions are hard to understand for lack of detail

It could be as was said, a head gasket & the coolant
goes out the exhaust,then you come here & say it's not in
the tank or radiator & we have no idea what your saying

Water incursion into floor well

check for blocked drain in the ac box and hose to outside . Check for core leak in heater core or loose broken heater hoses. . Finally check for rusted chamber at the base of the windscreen where the cabin air is allowed to get into the cabin.

My passenger side tire on my nissan quest is locked up

Failed Rubber Brake Hose,not allowing fluid
to return or a rusted caliper bore & piston,
from neglect,failure to change the fluid every
2 years & allowing moisture to build up in the
brake fluid & ruin the system components

The caliper mounts,abutments & slides could be
all rusted up ,again from neglect to disassemble
clean & lube once a year

Basically,lack of maintenance & work that you
believe to be done wasn't or not done correctly.

You could also have a failed ABS HCU Unit
(Hydraulic Control Unit) rusted inside & an
expensive piece to replace.

My question is-- do you change your power steering
fluid & trans fluid every 3 years?
They will be the next big issue
