I have a 2003 mitsubishi eclipse spyder. The switch for my power seat came off. where can I get a new one? It works going forward and back but the adjustment for up and down does not. one of the pins or things that sticks in the mechanism broke off it is not broken in mechanism,
My mechanic asked me to see if I could get a replacement and he will fix it.
Hi,Both the switches and the knobs can fail in this capacity. It sounds like it has already been removed but is unclear on the location of the damage so I will provide part information for both components.The knobs are available from Mitsubishi still and are inexpensive. Below are the prices and part numbers for the available knobs (they come in different colors of course):Brown - MR639079 $15.10Black - MR750128 $13.45The brown is a available at all of our warehouses and is no problem to order from any dealership. The black there is only one left in the country, located in our Los Angeles warehouse. If you need the black one I suggest you order soon.If you were to need more than the knob and need the actual switch (more rare, but it still happens) then you would want:Switch - MR140159 $363.40Obviously if you have a switch failure you would want to pursue used switches for that type of price, though it is available in OK supply at our Atlanta warehouse should you want new.
The switch is unchanged from 2000-2005 Eclipse/Spyder, so any of those would be suitable donors for a used switch. It is important to note that if you buy a used one by part number you must verify the year of the donor as 2000-2005. The same part number was used for 95-99 Eclipse/Spyder as well, however the switch did not have screw holes on those years. The part was later revised with screw holes making it backwards compatible with the older models but not making the older switches forward compatible. A used switch needs to be 2000-2005 in order to be a direct replacement.You can use a straight edge screw driver to insert behind the knob then gently twist to push it off if you haven't already. When you do this you will then be able to inspect the switch to see if you can activate the tilt or not. If the switch itself is broken, the switch requires replacement. If the engagement portion of the knob is broken, you just need a new knob.
are you online now?
Yes I looked online and found the part. should I just order it?
Pretty sure it is just the knob. Is that the best site to order from?
It was 10 something then 12 shipping
