You don't have to remove the whole front end, some one is yanking your chain when you lift the hood there is three mounting bolts that attach the headlight assembly to the body remove those and then you are going to want to position your hands on the top and side of the headlight giving a gentle tug there is a clip on the bottom of the headlight that is what you are trying to break free good luck let me know what happens

My 2007 eclipse passenger highbeams stopped working (headlights still work), I replaced the bulb and it did not fix the problem. My headlights now have gone out on the passenger side also and I repla


More than likely the problem is with the control switch that turns on the high beams, that switch is mounted on the steering column, the high electrical current load that the high beams draw burns the contact inside the switch and the end result is what is going on with your car. To replace the dimmer/headlight switch you will need to remove the trim around the steering column to access the switch for replacement.

Drivers side headlight bulb replacement


  1. Open the hood to the 1999 Dodge Stratus.

  2. Locate the two headlight lens assembly retaining screws at the top of each side of the assembly.
  3. Remove each screw with the ratchet and a suitable socket.
  4. Place the screwdriver behind the lens assembly to assist in prying out the guide pins that secure and align the headlight assembly. Hold the lens assembly from the outside edge (marker light/directional light section) first and pry from behind with the screwdriver to unseat the guide pins. Pry from the inside end of the lens assembly to unseat the other guide pin.
  5. Pull the lens assembly out far enough to reach behind it and disconnect the headlight bulb wire harness from the back of the bulb. Or simply remove the bulb by twisting the harness and retaining ring counterclockwise and remove it as an assembly.
  6. Turn the marker light/directional light socket and wire counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight lens assembly.
  7. Remove the assembly from the front of the Stratus.

You don't really remove the Headlight lenses unless you want to remove the front fenders. There are kits sold at most auto parts stores that you use to to clean the headlight lenses.

How to replace antanna on 1999 mitsubishi eclipsedo you have to trim the toothed cable also how to get the broken off piece out


No need to trim the cable. You'll have to remove the antenna assembly from the car to remove the broken piece. It's pretty straight forward once you get the plastic covers off the inside of the car. Take the whole unit out and take it apart. Once you have the broken pieces out, put the unit back together and plug it in. Have a buddy turn the radio on (which will run the motor to raise the antenna. Once it stops, feed the cable down the hole till it stops. Have your buddy turn the radio off (which will retract the antenna) and push the cable to help engage it in the gear below. It should catch a pull the rest in on its own.

It has step by step instructions with pictures. Even though its for an RS, which is what yours is, I used it for my 98 Eclipse GST. And its pretty much easy.
