Re: Question - Electric tailgate not staying up

"I just noticed similar issue with my late 2014 4h.. Tailgate opens up no problem but then immediately goes down.. Is this a sensor issue or the supports struts?" This is the same as when mine failed, motor opens the tailgate and then closes. The motor lifts up and opens the door and then disengages...

Re: Tailgate struts

Thanks for the suggestion of re-gassing, I had thought about it but I have just bought two new struts for £41 and decided that it was cheap enough to go with the new replacements.

Re: Question - Electric tailgate not staying up

I have just had the same problem that you have described on my 2015 pre-facelift 4H. I have just bought two new "Maxgear" struts for £41 for the pair which included the VAT and P+P and they fitted perfectly and the tailgate goes up and down just as before without any undue sound of the motor straini...

Re: Tailgate struts

Thanks for the suggestion, and I have considered it, but breakers yards in the UK have gone a lot pricier than they used to be and being used they could give up at any time, especially if they have been involved in the stresses caused by an accident. I was hoping that someone might have already fitt...

Tailgate struts

Hi, I need to replace both taligate struts ,but my local Mitsu dealer is qouting £90+ each and they only have one side available for order at the moment. So my question is does anyone know the opening force of the struts (2015 pre-facelift with electric opener)? they may have slightly different forc...

Re: No more PHEV

The only issue I will have is if it goes for sale in the next two weeks as I have meetings all day Wednesday through Friday next week and the following week it is all week and I am the chair so cannot even dip out for a short while. You could always pull a sicky and say that you are self isolating ...

Re: Electric shock when charging?

Hi Zoya5, The quick answer is no, never experienced or heard of it happening. I sometimes used to get static electric shocks from my previous car (Diesel X-Trail), getting in or out and touching the metal frame on the door, but I have never had any since getting my Outlander, 3 years ago (Happy days...

Re: TPMS on the PHEV - no pressures, what a joke!

Would you really talk to somebody that way if he were in a position to punch you in the nose? If it were a conversation in person, I'd have asked him why he insists on defending the indefensible: a manufacturer having all of the data in the computer, and failing to display it. This car is full of e...

Re: GX4h or GX4hs

From your other post it looks like you are looking for a "65" plate car, I have a "15" plate pre-facelift GX4h, the only thing that the GX4hs had extra was some safety kit like lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control, which some people seem to like or loath (I am personally happy that I d...

Re: Would you still buy it?

I have had my pre-facelift PHEV for nearly three years now and it hasn't missed a beat and still feels as good as the day I bought it, so yes I would certainly look at Mitsubishi the next time I change, but that probably won't be for a good few years yet as I don't change my car if it is reliable an...
