On either side of the headlight wiring assembly, in the engine compartment, you will find 2 small tabs. They are located to the sides and towards the bulb of the plastic assembly. Press these 2 tabs in while pulling the wire assembly out. Remove the rubber gasket and unhook the wire spring holding the bulb in place. The bulb come right out. The bulbs are halogen so do not handle the new bulb by the glass.

    Most of the other bulbs, tail lights, turn signals, etc, are replaced by turning them 1/4 and pulling out though. At least on my 2001 Mitsubishi Gallant.

You shouldnt have to pull the whole lens assembly.On the back of the lens assembly(inside engine compartment)you should find what looks like a big round nut where the wires go in.unscrew that nut and your headlight should come out and you can insert the new one.Its a halogen bulb.

I have a 2007 honda 919 hornet, the headlight quit working. I changed the bulb and checked the fuse, headlight will not come on. Is it the relay or do I need to clean the starter botton?

head light has a relay
and starter solenoid has a fuse

not blowing fuses is good

could be a bad earth at the bulb holder

if you cant go faster than JAWS

if you touch the bulb glass with fingers while fitting the bulb
it may blow the bulb

How to remove left headlight.

It may be all one sealed unit. Newer cars have headlight , blinker and parking light all in one housing. If the headlight is out you change the bulb by unscrewing the bulb capsule from the back. If you are trying to replace it because the lens is damaged or cracked, you will have to replace the whole unit.

My drivers side headlight (high/low beam) do not work on my 2006 Mitsubishi Galant.

Okay this is an outside shot becasue this happened to me too on my 2006 sonata. I replaced the bulb and nothing. I checked the fuses and everything was fine. I finally took out the whole headlight unit to look at it more carefully. The bulb HAS TO BE seated correctly or it won't work. So i reinstalled my new bulb and it worked, so i would check the new bulb is in there perfectly, I thought i had it all figured out the first time, but I never took the unit out to see it closely and thought it was in right when it was not.

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.

    Where is circuit breaker for headlamps on a 1989 caprice

    The breaker for the headlights is inside the headlight switch.
    You should have a fuse and relay for the horn.
    Could be a problem with the wiring harness for the steering column.

    2001 LT Tahoe How the heck do you replace the daytime driving light bulbs? I cant get the headlight housing loose from the frame to install the new bulb?

    On the top of the radiator support above each headlight there are 2 pins that are locked in to place that can simply be rotated and pulled straight up and they come all the way out they both the same size about 6 inches long. Once you pull them out the whole headlight assy is now loose and can be pulled away from the body allowing you to access the bulbs. Changeing both should take no longer than 5 minutes. Once you figure it out it's a smoke

    How to change a front headlight on a 2003 mitsubishi galant

    some models require you to remove the grill first to access the headlight mounting bolt and there is also the concern of the aim set bolt. be careful not to brake any of the hard to get to and easily breakable plastic parts or install may be more expensive than you may think. if you mean "change the bulb" simply find the electrical connector that lines up with where you can see the bulb from the outside and turn the connector a quarter turn and pull the bulb out from the rear. then remove the bulb while holding the socket firmly so as to not separate any wires. install is reverse of removal hope this helps
