You could have a worn rear strut which will need to be replaced. Also check some very minor things such as a loose muffler. And, a major ailment could be an extremely worn axle assembly or worn rear end assembly. Also check for things such as loose spring hangers as any small insignificant seeming part that is loose can cause rackets and odd noises and could run into catastrophic failure.

Huge noise in my 2003 Outlander. 2 different mechanics and they still couldnt fix it? Timing Belt snapped while I was driving and they replaced the belt and the car turned on and is running like before so...


Timing belt snapping at speed means that the engine would need a strip to check for damage caused by parts coming together that have no right hitting each other and who ever changed the belt should know that if they where any use as a mechanic

2003 Mitsubishi Outlander Grating Noise, Front Struts?


It very well could be the strut.
smaller chance could be the CV axle.
Also have the splash guards/heat shields checked to make sure they are all tight in place.

Rear seat on 2003 outlander is stuck in the down position how do i get it to the up position?


http://outlander.net.ru/Vitaly/CHASSIS/03/all_of_car.pdf

I have the same problem. Finally found this repair manual on line.
Pages 52A-27 & 28 give a break down of the seat.
The reclining knob is broken #23. It engages the reclining cable #31.
Look closely at the underside of the knob to see if part of it is broken off and this will indicate we share the same problem.
I've always let go off the knob when reclining the seat, but in the future, I'll be slowly releasing it.

What is the pin code for a 2003 mitsubishi outlander radio


First of all, the pin code for the radio is designed to keep someone from stealing your radio and using it in another car. To publish this code online would defeat the purpose.

Secondly, there are about 150,000 different possible pin codes to unlock your particular radio. The only way to get the radio unlocked if you don't know the code is to take the vehicle to a Mitsubishi dealer, where they can look the code up by the VIN on your car. Take your photo ID and proof of registration with you. The dealer will not unlock the radio for anyone except the registered owner of the vehicle. (At least they're not supposed to.)

Rear end noise on 2006 mitsubishi outlander


There is a race bearing on the back side of the rotor. If you haven't replaced it, I would strongly recommend it. You should change those out every time you change your rotors. Most new rotors come with new race bearings, if it did come with a new one (and it isn't shot yet), pull it out and pack it with grease. Wear latex gloves, put a pile of general purpose grease in your hand, and start stuffing the grease into the bearing until it comes out the other side.

the first thing i would check is the sway bar bushings they usualy go first. you have a bushing out somwhere. ive replace many struts because people have requested new struts and when we install them they come back and complain that the clunk is still there and all it needed was a bushing kit for $20
hope this helps
