Open Hood How To 2000-2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse

We are still working to obtain content for your car, however the video above is believed to have similar characteristics as your car.

 
Video Description

This video shows you how to open the hood in your 2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse. Popping the hood on your Eclipse is a two step process, you need to release the hood latch inside your Eclipse and then you need to release the safety latch under your hood in the front of your Eclipse. The video above shows you the location of both hood latches. Sometimes, the hood on Mitsubishis gets stuck and won't pop up after the interior latch is released. If this occurs on your Eclipse, simply pull up on the hood and it should pop up for you to release the second latch. Sometimes, especially on older Eclipses, you may have difficulty getting your hood to latch when you close it. In this case, the interior release lever on your 2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse is probably stuck in the "open" position - push the release lever back and forth several times and then try to close your hood.
