Use clear lacquer spray paint. It takes about a day for them to become crystal clear.

SOURCE: 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.

Pretty easy.....behind the bulb in the engine bay, you will see the lead that goes into the headlight assembly. There is a spring lock that holds the globe in. Just pull it out and replace.

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.

    WHERE IS THE HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT BULB LOCATED?


    open the bonnet, locate a screw on top of the headlight and undo it, locate two screws between the centre grill and headlight and undo them and locate a screw right behind the headlight assembly and loosen it. Now the whole headlight should come out. It wont come all the way out. By unplugging the electrical plug you can take it out completely. Lift up the lock thats hold the rear headlight cover and that will expose the internals of the headlight and then you can change whatever globe you want. First disconnect the wiring plug from the globe and then release the clip holding the globe and replace the globe and make you sure you dont touch the glass part of the new globe which installing. Touching it will shorten the globes life and there is a chance that it might explode inside and create mess.

    How do I replace the headlights on a 1988 town car?


    Under hood, remove large plastic wether cap from back of light, remove 3 point lug from unit, depress the rounded end of the retaining spring inside the open area,
    while depressing it push it over to one side to release the pressure off the globe, remove globe, new globe will fit in only one position, be careful not to touch globes end with fingers as the oil in your skin is dtremental to its operation. assmbly is then in reverse. Good luck

    I need to clean or replace the headlight globe


    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.!
