How do you remove the window crank from the front door of a 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage?

Need a screwdriver or better yet a trim remover. slide the tip between the crank trim disk and the handle. You'll see the c-clip that holds it on. Difficult to get the clip off without it flying on you so be ready to catch it with your other hand. Be patient and take your time so you don't damage the door panel. Use a towel to protect it. I had to do this exact thing last weekend as I had to reconnect the lock mechanism in my passenger door. Total work time from start to finish was about 20 minutes.

What are the reasons of service engine light in 2000 mirage?

Could be about 100 different things but first thing to check would be your gas cap If it is loose or not sealing it will turn on the light. Note If that is the problem after it's tightened light will still stay on for 2-3 days have you changed the air filter. I have a 99, the light came on because the air filter needed to be replaced.

How do you remove the door panel on a 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage?

If it has manual windows, the hardest part will be removing the "c" shaped clip on the window crank. Once you find the clip, hold a small flathead screwdirver stationary against one side of the clip. With another small flathead, pry under the other side of the clip. The rest is just taking off the screw head covers and taking out the screws.

On mine I could not see the clip. It's very well buried inside the handle. A trick I learned on the internet, that worked, is to slide a rag behind the handle. Work the edge of the rag in behind the handle and use a "sea-saw" motion back and forth. As if by magic, the rag will hook the clip and pull it off. You may or may not hear a pop as it comes off - I didn't. If it doesn't work, move the rag around in different positions. It doesn't take too long. Good tool = cloth shop rag, surprising but true!

The instrument panel has stopped working on your 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage can't see speed or gas level How can this be fixed?

i am going on past experience here, but newer dashes(instrument panels) are all digital and just plug into a holder or wiring harness,the days of speedometer cables are basically gone forever.So,disconnect battery and find shroud screws and remove cover,then find instrument cluster screws and undo,cluster should then come out,look on back side for wiring plugs.

get a good eye loop and be in well lit area and inspect the pins were they are soldered into the board.If you find a solder connection that looks like it has a round crack or i/2 round crack then there is probably the problem.This called a cold solder joint.You can resolder if you know how or find an electronics buddy who knows how to solder and let him/her do it for you. If you have instrument with digital numbers it is on possibly the digital display has gone bad,in that case it's junk yard time or purchase a new one.hope this helps.

How do you replace the headlights in a 1997 Mitsubishi Mirage?

Replacing the Headlights on a MirageYour headlights are actually small halogen bulbs screwed into the rear of the headlamp Housed by a rubber garmet that needs to be removed before you read the rest of this guys half-assed explination. Raise the hood and you will see the connector on the rear of each lamp. There is a round ring that you'll turn 1/4 turn then pull back, then the connector also turns 1/4 turn. pull the connector and bulb out as an assembly, and carefully remove the bulb from the connector. the bulb holder has a part number cast in it( 9004 etc.)It's smart to replace both bulbs if you can afford it, they're pretty tough and you probably won't have the car long enough to ever replace them again. by the way, it,s said that we should keep our fingers off the actual glass bulb itself, something about the oil in our fingers damaging the bulb.

How To

How to time a Mitsubishi mirage engine?

You'll need an inductive timing light. Connect to the battery, and clip the induction lead over the #1 spark plug wire. Start the car. The timing mark on the crankshaft pully will appear stationary when you point the light at it, and should correspond to the timing guage(mounted on the timing belt cover). Look on the emissions tag in the engine compartment to determine the correct setting. You'll need to loosen the nuts that hold the distributor , so you'll be able to rotate it. Watch your fingers, tie back your hair, and avoid loose fitting clothing! What year is your car, and what is the timing recommended on the emissions tag?

Is the nut on the bottom pulley of a Mitsubishi Colt Mirage engine left handed?

The thread is right handed (normal thread) and you need to turn it anti-clockwise to loosen it. On my dodge colt, it took an extension tube nearly 5 feet long to loosen this bolt. The difficult part is stopping the engine from rotating while you apply the necessary force.

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 1991 Mitsubishi Mirage?

Not sure if its the same as on my '89. On the '89 it is in the centre console forward of the shifter. The '89 actually has two relays in the bos, so even if the fuel pump relay is shot, you may still here the other one click when you turn on the ignition. Hope that helps.

How do you replace the headlamp on a 1997 Mitsubishi Mirage?

Did you learn how to do it? I have the same problem. Please share if you found the answer.

I removed the blinker and there are two bolts that I unscrewed but the headlight did not come out. I don't know what to do next.

New
  • Open the hood. Pull out the electrical plug by pulling straight back, horizontally.
  • Next, remove the black rubber boot. (The plug you just pulled out was plugged into the middle of this boot).

There is a tab on the boot at the top. You will need to work/pull the boot awhile to get it to come loose.

  • Release the old bulb with the clip that holds it in place.
  • Put the new bulb it and secure it with the clip. (Remember not to touch the bulb with your bare hands as this can cause it to burn out quicker.)Put the boot back on and plug the electrical plug back in.

If a 1999 Mirage will crank but not spark and you replaced many parts so it may be the wiring how do you find out?

What parts did you replace? If spark plug wires were removed, you might have them on the wrong posts. NMI You should have taken the car to an independent repair shop to begin with, you may be burying the problem by guessing.
