Paint issues with 2007 Outlander

I baught a bran new outlander 2007 on oct 22nd 2008. I only have 32,000km to this day and I have lots of paint chip on my hood and side panels. My car being fire red, the paint gone shows a white spots, and I have lots, soon my car hood will be whitw!

In the past with my other cars, I usually did about 60,000km in the same time (1 and half yrs) and NEVER did I have that much paint damaged on these cars.

Do Mitsubishi use cheaper paint then Honda, Gm, Chevrolet, Dodge and Oldsmobile? These are the past cars I owned, all baught new...

There probably a whole batch of them from the factory that weren't prepped right for the final coat... I think it's a factory error. I would complain to the dealer and the company. I don't think they use any cheaper paint, and essentially use the same techniques in painting the vehicles.

How do I replace serpentine belt on a 2007 mitsubishi outlander xls 3.0

It appears you got two belts on this, You would remove power steering belt first. Sometimes, the power steering body has bolts you can loosen, to get slack in the belt, with the bolts loose, you rotate the body, to get slack in the belt. With the belt on the right, you would rotate the tensioner to get slack in the belt, to remove and install.
I had to go to paint to draw the belt diagram, so it isn't exact, but, should be close enough.
I have no repair info on this vehicle.

What is the cylinder head bolt torque settings fir a 4g69 mitsubishi engine ?


Apply engine oil to the thread of the bolts and to the washers.
Tighten the bolts to the specified torque, using the tightening sequence shown.
Tightening torque: 54 ft-lb +/- 2 ft-lb
Loosen all bolts fully in the reverse order of tightening.
Re-tighten the loosened bolts to the specified torque in the tightening sequence shown.
Tightening torque: 15 ft-lb +/- 1 ft-lb
This step is to make it easier to ensure you are making 90 degree turns. Make a paint mark across each bolt head and cylinder head.
Tighten the cylinder head bolts 90 degrees in the specified order.
Tighten the bolts another 90 degrees in the specified order and check that the paint marks on the cylinder head bolts are aligned with the paint marks on the cylinder head.

Paint chipping and cracking issue

sounds like a port of entry paint repair. A lot of times cars get damaged in transit and the repairs are carried out with out the knowledge of the dealer or the new owner at the port of entry. Usually without much thought of using the right flexable products so the bumper lasts, it looks good but cracks later.

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.
