So guys as promised I finally got this issue in a national magazine. AutoExpress ran an article in this weeks issue with some awkward photos of me and the car; probably won't amount to much but at least it might cause Mitsubishi some awkwardness..

Well I've eventually given up on Mitsubishi and got it refurbed at Harry Hockley the other week - it's amazing how different it feels!

It was £986, one of the worst corroded ones they'd seen apparently, two cracked solenoids and refurbed motor. I shall be looking for better protection!

Just for the record, mine was leaking fluid for a while, no lights on but it was just a matter of time until failure! So I had a refurbished one fitted/ relocated into the boot by Auto Torque, who did an excellent job by the way - RECOMMENDED.

A big thanks to Spikem and Mogui for their efforts in highlighting what is clearly an absolute design flaw!

I've been complaining to Mitsubishi for ages now. I had my pump repaired at over £600 when my car was 4 years old. Only now, after 2 years I find out they extended the warranty to 5 years on the pump. Now they say because it wasn't taken to a Mitsubishi dealer for repair, they can't do anything. I'm taking them to the ombudsman, then after that small claims court.

I sympathise, it's an absolute disgrace!

Good luck with your claim

I've concocted a rudimentary shield using a bit of heat shield, should stop a bit of water getting through

better get one of those grease in a spray can things.. like heavy chain lube or similar.. we sometime use some teflon grease that sprays like a liquid from a spray can and solidifies quickly.. Spray the pump with that, and use lots around the place solenoids enter the pump body...

Mitsubishi are a joke. I do really like my Evo but I'll never buy another Mitsubishi again after the bad publicity of this and especially the lack of care for this problem that they clearly know about. At least you get a reaction out of the likes of BMW or an explanation of some kind but for Mitsubishi to give sub standard responses to the European market is exceptionally bad customer service. Really bad!!

I could reproduce my email trail to them if you want a read?! I was slightly 'annoyed' in places but ultimately very honest with them.
