    I think Kev may have managed to do this and is possibly in the process of writing up a detailed account with details of the necessary parts. Watch this space! /popcorn

    Facelift doors are the same, which should help sourcing them a little. adaxo is breaking a facelift, but don't know if the rear doors are still available (although they're definitely not white!). :)

    Main code-reading thread can be found here, though you might not be able to see it. However, this is the first page: Here is a simple illustration of the OBD-II port located on the underside of the dash, near the driver's left knee: ---------------------------- \. .\ ..------------------------

    The flashing N usually occurs when the box is in limp mode. There may be a stored fault code that could point to the issue, which you can obtain using the 'flashy dash' method. I'll paste something below that gives you instructions. But yes, the common issues are wrong ATF level, wrong ATF (e.g. Dexron III rather than ATF that meets or exceeds Mitsubishi SP-III ATF) or worn out fluid (often dark brown in colour). If it is a fluid issue, then Amsoil ATF is by far and away the best thing...

    That works for me Adam. I'm in no urgent rush for the wheel so whenever you come by Birmingham, I am happy to meet.

    Hi Alex, does it have the fixings too? I think you can't use the original ones for some reason. I should really look at the carbon cover I already have, although I know that one came with the stainless fitting bolts.

    VR4s from factory are in km. Speedo reads km/h and odometer counts in km. In the UK we still count and measure in miles so a converter gets fittedwhich makes the speedo read mph and the odometer count in miles. This means most VR4s in the UK have an odometer which has counted a combination of km and miles.

    A sticking caliper will lead to a "warped" disc. Good advice on viamoto, the sticking caliper is usually rusty slide pins which can sometimes be resurrected. The rust and sticking is often caused by the wring grease being used on the slide pins. They need a small amount of high temp grease, whereas you often see them gunked up with coppa slip.

    Nick Mann replied to a thread Vibrations, help in Drive Train
    Light throttle, 30 to 40 mph and 4th or 5th is indicative of worn or glazed clutch packs. If you have just had an oil flush with Amsoil then the best thing you can do is drive it around. Amsoil has cleaning additives in which can help. If you only had a sump drain and refill then I would suggest you try a full flush. If someone before you used Dexron 3 and not SPIII then that can cause glazing to the clutch packs.

    Yes Dave, TCL and ASC go hand-in-hand in the VR-4 - if you have one, you have the other.

    Facelifts usually only have ASC i have never seen one with TCL. i thought mitsi had incorperatedthe TCL into the ACS system when they went to facelift model. but i could definitely be wrong on this. i only saw a a couple of prefacelift models without TCL and i have one of them. personally i have never seen the point of TCL in a VR4 it just slows you down when pulling off the line. i would either disengauge TCL or just turn it off when i get into a vr4. it might be useful if you have lots...

    TCL was only standard on PFL autos. It was an extremely rarely-selected option on facelift autos. Also, what other light? The red LED? Almost certainly part of an aftermarket alarm.

    if the compressor clutch is not engaging when the compressor is in th car but you ca activate on the bench then i would suggest you have a problem with the clutch engagement signal from the cars loom. i had a very similar issue and it turned out to be a broken wire in the loom as it went over the front valve cover the clutch wire is one of the three that goes down to the power steering pump and the A/C compressor. the wire had just got old and the insulation very brittle in the heat from...
