    You need to replace it, the plastic weld leaks and that is what fogs them.

Your headlights are leaking water inside, and with the heat from the bulbs it condenses into fogginess,let me give an idea! if you have access to the bottom of the light, drill a hole that the water can drain.
that might work.!

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.


    3

    Hold the rear of the headlight socket and turn it counterclockwise to unlock it. Pull the headlight socket and bulb from the headlight assembly.


    4

    Grab the bulb and pull it from the socket with a slight wiggling motion.


    5

    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.


    6

    Slide the socket and new bulb into the headlight assembly and turn the socket clockwise to lock it into place.


    7

    Place the plastic cover behind the bulb and turn it counterclockwise to lock it into place.


    8

    Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the headlight bulb on the other side of the Galant, if needed.


    9Close the Galant's hood.

    Bad idle air control valve. Most likely needs to be replaced. I'm guessing you have around 125K miles on your Galant, right? See other posts for solution.

    Should be on your 2nd timing belt. If you have the 4cyl engine there is a balance belt that needs to be changed also. Mitsubishi recomends replacement at every 60,000 miles, your 10k over. Most of the time these motors are not interferance engines, But I have seen a few that broke a belt at high rpm that did bent valves......

    How can I replace or clean my headlight globe of a 1998 Galant


    Headlight globe, meaning the inside of the headlight? If thats what you mean, only way to do it, is to take the lens off, and in order to do that, you need to take out the headlight, take off the rubber backings and take out the light bulbs. Then preheat your oven to 210 degrees, stick your light in there for 10 minutes, and pry apart the lens, since the glue will melt. Dont forget to undo the clips that also hold the lens to the housing. After you pry off the lens, clean or whatever you need to do. Then reseat the lens and hook the clips, then back in the oven it goes for 10 mins. Then hold pressure on the lens untill glue hardens.

    Hope that helps.

    They will not have or sell replacement globes, it will come with the whole headlight.
