    Gordon...Thank you for the help....but yes, I am actually needing to replace the whole headlamp assemble on the passenger side. Got a 'quote' for $550+ to have someome do it....that is WAY out of my price range. I found the part for $170-190, and I'm thinking I can do it myself (with some instructions!!)

The 2003 Outlander utilizes replaceable (9007) headlight bulbs. If you're looking to replace the bulb(s);
1. Raise the hood.
2. Remove the plastic cover at the rear of the headlamp assembly by rotating it counterclockwise, and pulling it off. This will allow access to the headlight bulb.
3. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise in order to remove it from the headlamp assembly. Pull the old bulb out of the socket, and use a clean cloth to install the replacement bulb. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb.
4. Place the socket back into the assembly, and twist it clockwise. Reattach the plastic cover, and close the hood.
Are you needing DIY instructions for replacing the entire headlamp assembly? Left (driver) or Right (passenger)?

SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement

Hi Paul,

The routing diagram is under the hood.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
Mike

SOURCE: want to replace my own front brakes on 2003 Outlander

Hello, to replace the front pads first open the hood and remove the brake fluid cover (will make retracting the piston easier). Next losen the lug nuts till you can turn them by hand than jack up the vehicle and use a jack support stand. Once the vehicle is supported remove the lug nuts and wheel, remove the lower caliper screw and rotate the caliper upward. Remove the old pads, use one of the old pads and place it so it centers the caliper, using a large C-clamp position it with the solid end on the back side of the caliper and rotating handle contact the pad in the center or close as possible. Slowly rotate until the piston is fully retracted into the caliper, your brake fluid may run over but its ok. Install the new pads return the caliper to the normal position over the pads reinstall the lower caliper screw. Put the wheel back on tighten the lug nuts till the wheel is evely and firmly in its normal position. Remove the jack stand lower the vehicle, put the brake fluid cover back on and pump the brakes until they are firm and check the fluid, add some if needed. Tighten the lug nuts, check for leakes. After starting the vehicle pump the brakes a few times, now the fun part the test drive :) allow you self more than normal distance to stop. Tips, I always set the parking brake when working on the front brakes, some people use a 2x4 instead of a brake pad to retract the piston into the caliper, double check your work, i always do and take your time.

SOURCE: how do you replace the parklights on a 2005 mitsubishi outlander

You have to remove the head light assy from the body,
on almost all vehicles today

Then you can somewhat easily remove the lamp
socket from it & then the lamp/bulb it'self

Have to look for screws or bolts holding it on

May have to remove a few things to get to the
bolts.

You could look on You Tube--- for Video of it

REPLACEING HEADLIGHT IN ML350


Not sure if you need to replace the entire lens assembly or just a hid bulb. The Assembly is easy to remove with only 3 10mm bolts. The bulbs are all accessible from the back but the drivers side is a bit snug if you have larger hands. Most guys pull the assembly to give easy access to everything. Any of this is definitely a DIY that should take under 20 minutes both sides. If you need to replace bulbs buy a pair and replace both sides not just one. When you update this with what needs to be done then we can get your proper instructions

How to replace the headlamp bulb for my 2005 mitsubishi outlander


okay, open the hood, and look behind the head light assembly, look for the low-beam bulb, these bulbs are which operate when you turn on your headlights. check modifiedlife.com for the correct size of the bulb. then simply put your hand in and turn the outer-fitting 1/4 and it should come off, simply swap the bulbs and it should be a piece of cake. put it in reverse order.

Where is the water pump located on a mitsubishi 2.4L engine? I have a 2003 mitsubishi outlander


While I understand this answer may be overkill, follow this link to an article about the engine cooling system. Look midway down the article for this sentence "More information about 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander Engine Cooling System service and troubleshooting, find here – 32 pages of PDF filetype" Click on the "find here" link which will prompt you to download a file 14_rar. Open it with any decompressing software (Winzip, WinRar) to find 14.pdf. Go to page 14-23 to see a diagram of where water pump is. It will also give you instructions on removing and replacing it. Good luck!

Need to replace passenger side headlight on a 2002 Honda civic lx


I have not done this yet but I have seen a DIY on hondacivicforums.com. From what i hear to remove the headlight assembly you have to remove the front bumper to get to screws that hold the headlight assembly on.

Hope it helps.
