I will be going to get a detail on Saturday but wanted to see if anyone could tell me how this happened to my door and how to fix it, as well as if anyone has seen this interior switch ever because I can't seem to find it but it's labeled as Mitsubishi - I will also be going over the car Saturday to make a list of what I need and going to try to find what this connects to. But any heads up info would be appreciated




It's the same spot just at different angles.




Don't know if that comes from factory (doubt it) but it has no function as all four windows work perfect with the switch off as also on.

Thank you in advanced

That is not factory. The switch could be for one of many thing that that are in there or were in there by the previous owner. Try to trace it to see where it leads.

Is this a paint peel?

The car may have been painted previously and that is the paint pealing and showing the primer underneath.

Not sure how it happened but it would probably be cheaper and easier to just sort that part from another GVR4 that is the same color. It's only held on by clips and doublesided tape. Somebody could also repair the damage and blend the paint I'm sure but I think it would cost a few hundred.

You know what, now that think of it, it happened when I came out of the car wash (hand wash car wash) so I'm going tomorrow to show them but I talked to the manager on the phone and told him I have pictures of the car before I bought it (just bought it two days ago) and how it looks like now. He said if was probably because the paint was already bad that it happened, I'm like ok even if that's the case none of your employees informed me that it happened. so we will see how it goes tomorrow. Hopefully they will pay for it to get painted or comp me in some type of way to make up for it


Picture of the car before I bought it.

The drivers door trim looks like it's been re painted before, it's a different colour to the rest of the car.
I vote for bad paint prep.

H84 is Grace Silver on the Mirage/Colt/Summit.

You are lucky because you have the panel to start with and can repaint it at minimal cost. Car looks great other than those two panels.

THANK YOU! I was going crazy trying to find the color code. So the car wash is saying it was just badly painted and that's why it peeled so they didn't offer anything type of compensation which is okay I'm not going to be a kid about it. I'm getting the car detailed tomorrow so I'll have the guy look it over and before and after to let me know if anything thing else on the body needs to be addressed.

Are you talking about this?

Everything power works on the car. I've been driving with the power window switch on and off to see if there's any difference between the two and nothing. So I'm waiting for my friend to let me know when I can pass by his shop and start tracing where it goes

Sadly, this is one time I'd have to agree with the car wash. No way it would have done that to a properly prepped and painted panel. Like someone mentioned above it was poor prep work and the paint just didn't stick like it should have. Still a fairly inexpensive repair though.

The speakers are on the dash. It's the same thing on the driver side but this was a better picture to show where it's at

Yeah I agree too unfortunately, that's why I wasn't too pushy with them trying to repair it or give me a free detail or free something. Still makes me a tad upset when I see it though but I'll get it fixed, just waiting to see what other bad prep work if any shows up during the detail (I'll be present and helping with the detail so I can go over everything personally as well)

The USDM VR-4 has 3 sets of speakers; located in the rear window panel, the front doors, and dashboard (where yours are pictured). Does the JDM VR-4 only have 2 sets of speakers?

I've only found the ones on the dash and the ones in the rear? None on the doors...maybe they added more after 88?
