Guess who bought a Lancer EX

Recommended Posts

@Davy Check this engine cover out! This car was advertised for sale on Autolanka classifieds. Looks like it has the uppermost firewall lining, but if you look closely at the firewall the bare metal is visible, looks like it doesn't have the firewall heat shield

Oh this is @E L N I N O's EX. Maybe he can shed some light. 

The engine cover appears to be a different, larger version. Makes the engine look much bigger.

That Lancer is a beauty, wonder why he's selling it...

@trinity  Can you check whether your LanEX has the topmost soundproofing lining and the black heat shielding on the firewall?

Just took couple of photos, the upper most sound proofing is not there, but the black heat shied lining is available.

I just observed, why are those wires kept exposed like that? is it the same with your car as well @Hyaenidae? Also appreciate if you guys could suggest a good and easy product to clean that engine bay..

hmmm, at least there's more tape on yours.. ha ha. your engine bay looks super clean.. 

 

UNIMO buggers use pressure washers on the engine bay on routine service, albeit from some distance... that was back in Edit: March 2018 though.

After seeing this thread I've decided to tell them not to clean the engine bay anymore

Yes, i too have seen them wash the engine bay with pressure guns, was wondering why they are doing it like that especially when they being the agent. Anyways whats the cost of getting the EX serviced with them?

Wow, Thanks for the detailed info machang, is viper deck panel removing and cleaning a part of the service or you just had it done additionally?

It's not a part of the service, just a precaution to prevent drains from clogging with dead leaves and whatnot :) I get it done once every year.

Thats great.. I too should get it done cuz my car is parked near a treeline at the office and sometimes dead leaves get stuck inside the gaps between viper arms and the panel...

Hey Davy, it's been a while. Sorry I wasn't active here for a long time. Thanks for dragging me back in :)

About the cover, it's not OEM, I bought it off ebay or Aliexpress (can't remember exactly) after seeing the 4A9 DOHC 16valve lettering on it. I wish it said MIVEC though. It wasn't a direct fit, I had to do some work to get it properly in place. And BTW it didn't come with any heat insulation.

You were right. I checked my engine bay, it has the black heat shield but not the uppermost lining. Probably the brand new imports never came with it, thanks to UM 🤬

Thanks for the compliment :) I'm planning to upgrade. I neither have money nor space for two vehicles so have to let her go, sadly.
