You have to squeeze the connector... there is a plastic lever as part of the connector, which has a barb on it. You must squeeze the lever, thereby releasing the barb and allowing you to slide the connector off the bulb prongs.

How to change headlight on 2000 galant

  • 1
    Place the Mitsubishi on a flat service in park. Set the parking brake before continuing.

  • 2Open 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.

    9Close the Galant's hood.

    Changing headlights

    Your grille and chrome bar are held to your truck with eight clips. You can see the top clips if you look. First VERY GENTLY!!! start pulling your grille until you start popping those clips out. Keep an eye on your chrome bar, because it is clipped into the headlight. GENTLY pull on the chrome bar at the headlight until the clips come off, then work your way over to the other headlight. The goal is to be take your time and be gentle until you have all the clips released. Set your grille aside(be careful not to scratch it). Each head light has two metal tabs on top of it, the outer tabs are slightly hidden in the fender. If you pull these tabs up, it will release the headlight from the frame of the truck(be careful not to let the headlight fall out and scratch your bumper). Once you have the headlight assembly out, pop off the circle rubber cover on the back of the unit. Your bulbs will be inside there, and make sure you don't touch the bulb when removing it. Just reverse the process when your done changing your bulbs. Don't forget to put the rubber cap back on the headlamp unit before you re-install it.

    Help changing the low beam, headlight

    You'll need to pull up on the clips that hold the headlight in.. the clips are located on the back of the headlight and should be either white or black.. pull the clips straight up and you can then remove the headlight... remove the weather cover off the back of the headlight and pull the bulb out.. put the new bulb in but do not touch it... you should have an alcohol pad and clean the bulb with it before putting it in to make sure there's no residual oils left (oil will ruin the bulb and cause it to explode in the housing).. then pop the headlight in and put the weather cover on and slide the housing back in and clip it down...
