Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

01 Eclipse Spyder

Rain comes through doors and top. Is it the gasket or what ever there called. Is it something I can do myself or do I need to talk it in? The same with the conv. top? I need a new top but asked the dealer and they qt'd me $1600.00 just for the top. Not the install. Can that be done by someone who knows very little about cars? Thank you for your time in this matter.

I have an 01 Eclipse Spyder Gt that needs a new front bumper and some other random cosmetics. So just wondering, what year eclipses have interchangeable parts with my car?

There are books called "Hollander Interchange" which most salvage yards use that include this information. The books are expensive such that you need to cultivate a friend in the business to help you, or perhaps some other person here has specific knowledge.

My top will not go down on my 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT Convertible so I had the dealer analyze it and they said the 5th bow sensor needed to be replaced and wanted $450.00 to replace it. Is there...

Definitely want to stay away from the dealer. Might try a respectable garage mechanic and ask him kindly how to go about it. If they know anything about it, I'm sure they can give you advise. You could also purchase a repair manual for the car, this will come in handy when your next problem comes along also. Manuals are around 10-20 bucks and well worth the money.

Is there a way to get an 07 mitsubishi eclipse spyder GT into gear without the key to the vehicle?

Take off the parking brake and use a wheeled floor jack under the drive wheels to move it for now(don't lift it any higher than necessary).

All three wire showing 3 it should be all 4 wires, In the back of the rear seat is the convertable top module, the yelloow black wire should go ground to bring it down.Other than that a new module will be needed,this gets its command from the window main switch so see if yellow/black wire switches over

Changing the front speaker 2001 Eclipse Spyder

There are 7 screws all together to remove the door pannel. First, you have to take off the hanlde for the door. the 2 plastic covers on the handle pop off revealing 2 screws on the top and bottom, remove those. then behind the the door handle on the inside, pull it as if you were to open it and there is a screw that you have to remove. Then there are 2 screws on either side of the door pannel, both are farily close to the top, remove those, and then its just a matter of popping the pannel off. start from the bottom, pop it off then slide it up. becarefull, after the door panel is free, there is a connection for the power doors and windows unhook that then the pannel will be free. after that the speaker will be right there and its common sense on removing that. good luck.

2003 eclipse spyder convert top prob

Unfortunately, this is not something you can fix yourself. You will need to take the car to either the dealer or a shop which specializes in fixing convertible tops, headliners, etc (commonly called an automotive trim shop) Most used car dealers have a trim shop that they can recommend.
