You aren't the first person to cure it by changing lots of parts. BUT, the majority of the people that had it go away also had it return pretty shortly after.

Just ask yourself why Mitsubishi would redesign a part?

Understood. But the bracket is not a moving part, therefore the noise cannot just dissapear and re-appear due to the bracket. I will post if/when the noise returns.

Food for thought: My noise was not there when the car was cold, it only appeared when things were warm.

What these other guys have told you is true. The noise comes over XX,XXX miles from the belt rubbing on something it shouldn't, which the bracket fixes, so be sure to write down the bracket part number for future reference.

Does the power steering pump have to come off to replace the bracket?

I got the new bracket, but it looks the exact same as my current one. Is there any discernible difference between the two? They even have the same number stamped in.

I didn't compare mine so I'm not sure. They do look very similar though from what I remember. Can't comment on the stamping on them

Having this same issue on my 03 Evo 8. Except mine is rubbing on the back of the timing belt tensioner pulley. Replaced the belt and all timing components 2x, and the noise never went away, it also eats at the back of the belt. Just pulled my cylinder head off to do a head gasket and studs....glad I found this thread.

I looked on STM's website, and it appears that the engine mount bracket isn't IX specific. It's universal for an 8 or a 9.

So, that being said ^, changing the bracket and tensioner pulleys should resolve my issue of the noise and the belt being eaten by the tensioner pulley. Right?

ever since getting the bracket done, and all timing components (at the dealer), I get this OFF RHYTHMIC TICK NOISE which I cant tell where it comes from.
either cyl 4 or 1 (closest to timing components) or timing area

They apparently took the PS pump off as I had a dent on the bottle afterwards. I read it might be PS fluid, but that id full
