Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Galant
I cant quite figure out how to get it all undone to change the headlight bulb
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.

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.

Open 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. Close the Galant's hood.
