Not exactly a “direct fit” horn
It is not what I would call a “direct fit”. The bracket is not like the original. The original has a metal tab that inserts into the fender well. This does not.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Guides

Mitsubishi Eclipse was released 15 years ago. Since then, it has been the franchise model of Mitsubishi because of its sporty and "geo-mechanical" styling. The Mitsubishi Eclipse was built as a sporty coupe in line with Plymouth Laser and Eagle Talon during the early 90s. Several trims were offered during its first generation: base and ES which were offered in a 1.8L four cylinder engine rated at 92 hp, and the GS that housed a 2.0L twin-cam 4 cylinder engine that was rated at 135 hp and the GS Turbo and the all-wheel-drive GSX with 195 horsepower turbocharged 2.0L 4 cylinder. Though it surpassed the specifications of some sports coupe of its kind, the Mitsubishi Eclipse received poor attention thus generated low sales on its first years.
 
 
The follow up redesigning happened in 1995 as the Eclipse's second generation. Additional features from the present Eclipse were the dual airbags, a more contoured styling, a larger interior, and a new base engine. In 1996 the Spyder was introduced in GS and GS turbo. The GS coupe adopted the 2.0-liter engine 140 hp Chrysler engine. The GS Spyder used the 2.4-liter engine rated at 141 horsepower. A turbocharged Mitsubishi-built 2.0-liter, rated at 210 horsepower was used at the GS-T. Both Spyders included a power top with a glass rear window and electric defroster, plus power windows and door locks. The second generation lasted up to 1999 with several but minimal restyling.

The turn of the century came the third generation Mitsubishi Eclipse. This time the 2000 model hit big time as it generated enough sales to make it a top-selling series. This time, the V6 became available to the GT as the turbocharged engine and all-wheel-drive were dropped. The new Mitsubishi Eclipse was longer, taller, and certainly bigger that the previews Eclipses. Both RS and ST used the same 4 cylinder engine. The GS and the GT were offered automatic as an option. The front side airbags and antilock brakes were only available to the GT, part of a Premium Package option that also included leather upholstery. Standard features included alloy wheels, air conditioning, CD stereo, and power windows and locks. The RS had 15-inch wheels, the GS 16-inch, and the GT 17-inch tires.
 
The fourth generation Eclipse came with big changes in the 2006 model year. Aside from its new engine now at 3.8l V-6, same engine used by the Galant sedan, it has a 6-speed manual transmission or Sportronic automatic transmission, traction control, and 18" alloy wheels. The 3.8l MIVEC V6 produces 262hp at 5,750 rpm as a result of variable valve timing and lift. Torque can reach as high as 260 pound-feet at 4,500 rpm. It can zoom from 0-60 in 6.8 seconds. The new Eclipse is bolder, faster, and more beautiful.

FAQs—Mitsubishi Eclipse

I have a Mitsubishi Eclipse, and I am quite satisfied with its performance. But lately, I have been having problem with its sunroof. It gets stuck, and it's very hard to close and open. Do I need to put grease on it, or does it have to do with the sunroof mechanism?

By your description, it seems that the sunroof that you have on your Eclipse is one that slides or retract into a pocket. It is a power variety and therefore, it will have a mechanism consisting of a control switch, electrical motor, and relay. You have to check which of the said components is faulty. Check also the circuit breakers and fuses that protect the mechanism. While you're at it, make sure to clean and lubricate the roof track since debris can get stuck on it, causing the same problem.

Help! Water is leaking on the sunroof of my Mitsubishi Eclipse!

The sunroof can make or break your car. It can add to its aesthetic appeal, thus increasing its resale value. However, in cases wherein it starts leaking, then that becomes a major problem. It will not only make your car stinks, but it will also lower down the resale value of your car. Remember, no one would want to buy and drive a stinky car.

Usually, leaks occur when there are gaps between the rubber seal and the glass. Quick fixes include the use of specialized silicon products that restore the elasticity of the rubber seal and improving the contact sealing between the glass and the weatherstripping. If these quick fixes don't work, then you'll have to replace the sunroof weatherstripping with a new one. Fix the problem right away to prevent molds from developing inside your car. The smell of mold buildup is hard to get rid of.

I think I'm having transmission problem with my Mitsubishi Eclipse. It's hard to shift gear from park to drive. Any idea?

You are right. It is a transmission problem. But you see, the hard shifting of gears is not the only symptom of a faulty transmission. You may also hear some whining, humming, or clunking noise. There may also be some grinding and shaking whenever you shift a gear. Another indication is a low level automatic transmission fluid, especially when there is a leak in the transmission. Then there is that smell of something burning due to the overheating of the transmission fluid.

Aside from all these, you may also notice that the check engine light found on the dashboard of your car is always on. Although this may not always be the reason why you are having problem with the transmission, but still it is an indication that something is wrong with your car. Other symptoms of a faulty transmission are gear slipping and a dragging clutch. Don't wait to experience the rest of the symptoms before deciding to have your car repaired because these can lead to a more serious problem and a more costly repair.

Mitsubishi Eclipse: The 22-Year Journey of the Japanese Pony

The early 90s was the time Mitsubishi decided to have a say in the world of compact sports cars. With the powerful Mitsubishi Eclipse, the company wanted to release a car that competed in the same market of the iconic Ford and Chevrolet muscles. After four generations, a variety of engines, and multiple awards and recognitions, the car’s 22-year existence has earned enough respect to be considered as a classic in its own right.

First and second generation Eclipse: The early years (1989-1999)

The early versions of the Eclipse popped right out of the market as one of the most affordable sports cars to buy with its perfect balance of cost and overall performance. There were various engine, turbo and drivetrain selections that were all able to deliver enough power (up to 210 horsepower) to satisfy any driver’s need for speed. Most people would remember some of old models’ iconic pop-up headlights as part of its stylish exterior. The car was featured on Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best cars through 1989 and 1992. In 1999, a special version 10th Anniversary OZ Rally Eclipse was sold, complete with all the interior, exterior, engine, and turbo upgrades.

Diamond Star Motors (DSM) partnership (1990-1998)

The plans of the Mitsubishi Eclipse weren’t solely used by the Japanese manufacturer. Because of its partnership with Chrysler Corporation under Diamond Star Motors, similar models were made to be named under Plymouth and Eagle. This was the first model produced under the collaboration. Plymouth had the Plymouth Laser, while Eagle sold the Eagle Talon. Almost all specifications were the same across the three makes. Only a few exterior features distinguished the three from each other. However, the Talon and Laser weren’t as successful as the Eclipse. Manufacturing for Eagle and Plymouth stopped in 1994 and 1998 respectively.

Third and fourth generation Eclipse: Strong finish (2000-2011)

Now that the DSM partnership is over, Mitsubishi was free to tailor the Eclipse to its own wishes. The Eclipse shared the same platform with the Mitsubishi Galant. All trims received vast improvements. More power upgrades were put on the Mitsubishi Eclipse for these years (the later models reached 260 horsepower). The exterior looked sporty, smooth, and sleek compared to earlier models. All these still came at an affordable price which made it very appealing to most buyers. Almost 1-million units were sold, making the Eclipse the best-selling Japanese sports car during its time.

The end of the road: Special Eclipse (2011)

In honor of the long and successful run of the Mitsubishi Eclipse, the company decided to auction-off the final unit. Using a special color from the Eclipse’s archives—Kalapana Black—18-inch wheels, side graphics, leather interior, a powerful sound system, and many more upgrades, these really made the last unit one-of-a-kind. All proceeds from the auction were donated for the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan. It’s only fitting to have a noble end to a legendary car’s story.
