Obviously the bolt needs to come out did they try to heat the bolt up or not ? the only way to properly align it is with the removal of the bolt correct as it rely on caster camber settings so maby a more well known repair shop is in order

How do I eplace the front rotors on a 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4wd? Is there a special tool required to remove and replace the rotor and is there an adjustment needed inside the hub?

jack up the car, first break lugs, and remove tire. There are two bolts on the front back side, if it like are endeavor then I compressed the caliper piston and then I had to take apart the caliper as the old pads did not come out, those are the two bolts on each end. then put back on. Once the caliper is off the rotor will come off as it is held on by the caliper. Just be careful with the caliper once it is removed as it is a brake line, you can use a hanger for it does not pull on the line when it is off the rotor. Good Luck Tim

How to replace lower rear control arms on a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclip

I'm not surprised the shop didn't want to do the work. SOMETIMES removing the cam bolt nuts, and applying a large lever and socket,with heat, will break the bolt free of rust.

If not, it gets involved and expensive very quickly. Bolts can be cut off with and angle grinder wheel, but control arm bushes or complete arms may need replacing.

Change left rear tire

This is a somewhat common problem with many cars. Spray the center of the wheel hub with WD-40 or some similar lubricant. Corrosion can form at the hub center, making it difficult to remove the tire. Kick the outer edge of the tire to break it free.

How to replace antenna on a 1997 mitsubishi montero

We just did this the last week in a '99 Sport. It took about two hours.

Take your front tire off and loosen about 5-9 bolts that hold the innter fender panel on. Then you can pull back and disconnect 2-3 bolts that hold the antenna in. My problem now is that I can't get the new rod to retrieve back into the antenna.

Hope this help (remember rated an comment this)

It sounds like you have some loose lugnuts. Luckily, Your car should have all the tools to fix this right next to the spare tire. To see for sure, jack up that side of the car, following the instructions on stickers near the spare tire or in the owners manual. You will need to jack up that corner of the car, and use the lugnut wrench to tighten those nuts as tight as you can get them with that little thing. If this was the problem, you need to then drive the car to the nearest tire repair store and have them tighten those down for you. If you have a torque wrench, tighten them to 85 ft/lbs.
