Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant
I got a new unit for Glove Box that doesn't have the Lock cylinder in it. would like to use the old lock cylinder in this new unit, but I am not sure how to take it off from the Plastic grip around in Old Unit.
First off you will need your key to the lock and a 1/8" flat blade screw driver. Notice that your lock only turns 1/4 rotation, after doing this procedure you will be able to turn the lock an extra 1/4 turn counter clock-wise (when viewed from the front of the latch).
Turn the lock so it is vertical (perpendicular to the latch itself (counter clock-wise)). Turn the latch around so you can view the back and the lock is to your left. Above the lock there is a slot that you can put your screw driver into (not the indention in the metal). You need to insert your screw driver and listen very closely, you should hear your screw driver hitting the metal latch. Once you push the latch down with your screw driver, turn the lock another 1/4 turn with your key from the front (counter clock-wise looking from the front).
Once the lock has been turn a full 1/2 turn, you should be able to push the lock out from the back of the latch.
To put the lock in the new latch, you have to have your key in the lock. Put the lock in the latch with the one pesky keep latch facing the handle used to open the glove compartment. Once the lock is in the new latch, turn clock-wise until you can't anymore (1/2 turn).
You're done my friend!

Open the Galant's hood and locate the headlight cover -- roughly 3-inch wide circular piece of plastic -- behind the headlight bulb intended for replacement. Turn this cover clockwise to unlock it and pull it from the headlight assembly, exposing the headlight socket below it.
Hold the rear of the headlight socket and turn it counterclockwise to unlock it. Pull the headlight socket and bulb from the headlight assembly.
Grab the bulb and pull it from the socket with a slight wiggling motion.
Pick up the new 9003 headlight bulb using a clean, lint-free cloth and line up its prong with the slots in the socket. Never tough the bulb with your bare hands, as the oils left by your hands can cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.
Slide the socket and new bulb into the headlight assembly and turn the socket clockwise to lock it into place.
Place the plastic cover behind the bulb and turn it counterclockwise to lock it into place.
Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the headlight bulb on the other side of the Galant, if needed. Close the Galant's hood.
