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.

2001 Eclipse Spyder GT Convertible replace head light bulb

I would recommend that you remove the headlight assembly/ It is a very simple procedure and will make replacing the bulb that much easier.There will be three mounting bolts on the top in plain sight, Its an import so your bolts are going to be metric 10 or 12mm I believe. After these are removed, there will be a clip still holding the headlight in, grip the front of the headlight and the back and give it a good tug up and it should come free. After the headlight has been removed then unplug the wire from the back of the headlight, you will see three prongs there will be a rubber gasket and a metal ring, you will need to remove the ring to be able to get the old bulb out. be careful as not to damge the rubber gasket or you will get water into your headlight. If you need any pics I can post them for you. Hope this works.

How do I Remove Headlight Assembly on my 1998 Eclipse and is there anyplace I can go to get a diagram

Things You'll Need:
  • Replacement Headlamp 60/55W H13
  1. Open the hood and find the front headlamp assembly.
  2. Depress the black tap holding the harness connector to the headlamp assembly. Pull the connector toward you to remove it.
  3. Turn the bulb assembly counterclockwise and remove the headlamp from the car.
  4. Check the new bulb against the old bulb for an exact match. The wattage and rating should be the same or the headlamp may not work correctly and could damage the vehicle.
  5. Insert the new bulb into the assembly and turn clockwise.
  6. Reconnect the harness connector by firmly reinserting it into the back of the assembly.
  7. Turn on the headlamps to check the alignment of the replaced bulb.
Tips & Warnings
  1. Vehicle headlamps can get extremely hot, make sure the lights are off for a significant amount of time before touching them.
  2. Halogen bulbs shatter easily, so handle with care

You need not remove your light assembly. Just open your bonnet and you'll see the compartment for the bulb in the front part. Unplug and remove plug to replace accordingly.

Adjusting Headlights w/2001 Eclipse?

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
