Pajero Accumulator Repair or Replace

Thu Oct 08, 2020 6:22 am

Hi all

Mitsubishi want R4750 for a new one long cylinder one, not the round black ball unit. But they have to order from Japan.

I was told by brake specialists here in Durban, that they can repair them.

Firstly - is this possible? I thought they were sealed units. (They estimate the repair to be around R700.) Labour to remove and install will be the same for new or repaired unit.

Second, if it is possible, is it worth taking the risk of it failing again, or worse causing damage to the rest of the brake system?

Advice would be greatly appreciated.

First check with Mitsubishi SA. There was a factory recall on these units. Had mine done at Rola for free and I have a 2000 gen3. Had it done last year November. You can call me if you need more info 0798781615

Interesting information.
What exactly are the symptoms ?. Is it a high pitched squawking noise ?. After I bought mine it made some noise and has stopped since about February. They did say the unit is suspect.
If that is the case, a trip to Mitsubishi is on the cards.
