Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,Absolutely.... you can attach the image here or if the site is giving difficulties (The image uploader seems to not work for some people) you can upload to imgur.com (free site) and post the link here and I can help you figure out what it is.
Thanks.... is it the plastic covers that go over the 14mm bolts holding the front of the seat to the floor?
Can you get a photo of the exact part/area of concern? The only picture I got before was of the whole interior and I can't make out anything obvious in it.
Ah, got it! I see it in the original picture now, I couldn't make it out before but knowing what I'm looking at I get it now.Let me do some checks on LHD versus RHD application for that trim... It should be the same, but we want to be sure of course.
It almost looks like something is weird going on there.... there should only be one in board trim and that is the one that covers the mounting bolt. Those two bolts you can see in your photo look out of place.Is there any way we could get another photo from closer or from the front? It would really help. The attached is the "usual" cover panel that goes there on manual seats (power ones use a larger panel across the front entirely), but it looks like your area of concern is a bit rearward of that anyway.
Well what I'm wondering if it is either of these situations:-Something modified from the original (like something was added or added then removed making it more conspicuous)
-It is normal but just the rust is making it more conspicuous (though from your description it sounds like something used to be there)-It is a third party power seat conversion (which would explain why it isn't in the parts catalog that something would be there)Let me ask you this, thinking about that third possibility:Do you have power recline for the seat back, or only the seat base is power? The reason for asking being that factory power seats have power recline, and many aftermarket conversion power seats do not.
I'm stepping out for a break but will be back shortly. Perhaps we should regroup maybe tomorrow if you can get a closer few pictures?Let me know, I will be in for several hours tomorrow.
