    Welcome!

    That's quite a fun car collection you've got. I love the oddballs (Mirages included!) among the more expected classics.

    I don't think the hole (normally covered by the bumper cover & bumper bar) to access inside the boxed "frame rails" is big enough to get a wrench inside with any wiggle room. I'm guessing it's an...

    Thanks, Mark.

    You're probably right, but I'm done for the time being!

    I'm not even looking at the cheap Mirage ads any more since I got the white one. That used to be a daily habit.

    That's the new owner driving away.

    I may come to regret this, since the next Mirage seems to be a bit of a problem child.

    Yup.

    My ScanGauge works fine. But a cheap bluetooth OBD adapter I got on eBay caused problems.

    Could be.

    My current Mirage (#3, the white one) was its owner's FIRST ever car. So the trans and clutch took some abuse, and it shows. 2nd gear synchros are worn, and I figure the clutch is...

    When I filled the cavity with water, I didn't see any leakage around that area. Water would have seeped a lot faster than oil/grease. That makes me wonder about inconsistent sealing.

    And I only...

    I'm sure you can do this to your 2019. Yes, the dealer can technically enable cruise, if they're willing to.

    [/B]Preach.



    I also appreciated whichever engineer decided on that helpful feature.

    I've taken the bumper cover off a Mirage 3 times now, so I know where the fasteners are, and it's a 5...

    I wonder if there's a potential corrosion issue at the top of the pivot shaft. EG: if it's not perfectly sealed from the outside. It'd be more noticeable in the older cars with lotsa kms like ours....

    Coinky-dink!

    I passed one of those fancy mid-engined Audi cars (Lambo twin?) in my Mirage. Looked neat.

    And by passed, I mean it was going the opposite way. :D

    I would have only replaced the failing bearing. It bet it was somehow contaminated or had a manufacturing defect.

    That's generous of you.

    FYI, it's probably easier to just remove the rear bumper cover & bumper bar to do a hitch installation or removal. Bumper removal is easy - takes 10 minutes or so. ...

    It could also be sealing inconsistencies from car to car.

    My Mirage #2 (red) has only a tiny fraction of the rust in this area that #3 (white) has, despite being the same age, and being driven...

    That's surprising - are you saying you filled the void, and it began leaking out from another point? Can you tell exactly where the gap is, or is it hidden behind the bumper cover?

    Well, he is getting a nearly new set of tires as compensation for the hubcaps! The Michelins on the alloys are pretty much toast... legal, but barely. And one of them makes a wub-wub-wub noise...

    Airbag light now on in cluster

    ^ FYI, Dodge Aries K is right. Pop the yellow retaining tabs up by prying gently, then you can remove the connectors.

    My problem now is: after disconnecting the airbag and reconnecting it,...

    Sold! Pending provincial safety inspection, which will be no problem.

    Young guy came with his folks to look at it - specifically wanted a manual transmission. That's a rare youth these days. ...
  22. Aim for the sky!

    Well, the car is all spit & polished, and I posted the ad last night.

    Asking $4400 certified, "firm price". Average wholesale value in Ontario is supposedly $4700 and retail is $5500.

    The plot thickens...

    I finally put the 165/65's on the back of the car again and took it for a spin. There was no Christmas tree freakout. Trip length of 8 km = 5 mi.

    I think it took a couple...

    Agreement agreement!

    95% of my driving is scenic routes & rural back roads, max PSL of 80 km/h = 50 mph. (Which is a big part of how I'm able to regularly get such silly MPG numbers.)
  25. Sticky: That's what's on the front of my white Mirage.

    LOL...someone else is going to have to try that combination.
