Hahahaha....and what forum would that be?


The melting synthetic material on the lever can happen to other uses of the material as well. I,ve had gadgets with the rubber type material "melt" for no apparent reason. A phone protector I had virtually "melted" and was very sticky. Same as some parts on a motorcycle. Age? Possible oxidation?



Maybe shape a knob out of plastic/wood and get a heat shrink to hold it in place. Even a bit of stainless steel pop rivetted/araldited in place...


Let us know how you fixed it..

The handle is not made of rubber. It is made of "soft feel" plastic.
The chemical composition of plastics is very complex and as plastics age they all deteriorate differently.
Some plastics become hard and brittle and other soft and gooey, it is to do with the migration, leaching and loss of the plastisers, plastisers are additives that determine some of the physical properties of the plastic, combined with physical and chemical "damage" from use or even not being used.

Thanks for the answer, can anyone confirm that the frame of the handle is made of metal, so I can only remove the melted plastic and fill it again with other material? Thanks again for your help.

Hey mate my 2c is if itís a big issue for you, youíd be able to buy the rubber part for a few bucks probably maybe $10, Iíve bought quite a few plastic / rubber parts like this from my local MMC dealer for both my NP and NX and they have all been reasonably priced.

Ok, so you confirm that the plastic/rubber melted it's not structural. I will do so, thanks for the help!

Certain insect repellents and sun screens can have a similar effect on some plastics. I wonder if hand moisturisers and / or this modem obsession with hand sanitisers might also be a factor?

Does a wife / partner also drive the vehicle? Does the steering column height get regularly adjusted between drivers?

No Sir, I'm the only driver and and I do not think I've adjusted the steering wheel height over years of use of the Pajero.

No sorry mate, I donít know, I tried looking at the parts diagram and can see the lever but it doesnít show a part number so maybe you canít. Have a chat with Mitsubishi parts dealer with your VIN and ask them to look.
