You need the manufacturer's service manual for that. It will have pages of instructions with line drawings, a list of torque specs and special tools needed. I can find you links to online service manuals too but if you're going to do involved repairs like this, you should have a copy of the manual anyway. Don't waste your money on Hanes and Chiltons manuals. Those only cover the more basic stuff.

Hi.

Thanks for getting back to me.

I would greatly appreciate your help in getting online service manual links.

(I was getting ready to buy the Hanes manual.)

I look forward receiving the Links as I need to get some work done quickly on my car.

Thanks in advance, Ivan.

I'm looking for them, but I'm racing a dying laptop battery at the moment. Do a search for "AllData" or "Mitchell-On-Demand". Also try eBay for a paper manual. I like those better.

Do an Advanced Search for your car model and year on eBay. There should be pages of listings to include service manuals. You might also try searching for "blackhatauctions" under user names on eBay. They used to go by "lorieandjeff". They buy a lot of stuff from dealership auctions all over the country. I bought over 50 manuals from them for my school.

Also consider looking for a Mitsubishi dealer. When I worked for a very nice family-owned Chrysler dealership, we had the owners' permission to borrow manuals and tools to regular customers, and we tried to help each other with trade-in cars of other brands.
