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

Headlight unit replacement

Purchasing an Eclipse manual would be a benefit in your case. They are relatively cheap at any parts store or even the library. This will help you to know exactly what to remove and how to remove the parts to get to the mounting bolts. There are several ways manufacturers allow access to these items. From under hood, under fender, by removing grill. Usually they are under the hood and will be in a series of identical screws or bolts pointing in the same direction as the headlight assembly.

My 1999 mitsubishi eclipse turn signal flashers wont work but the emergancy flashers do

Sounds like the bulbs have burned out, you will probably have to replace them. Most auto parts stores can point you at the right bulb for your car, and some can even show you how to replace it.

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.

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.
