The cover does not come off they are sealed composite units. lift your hood and look for a white slide clip on both sides of the headlight. you may have to remove black plastic shield. pull up on those clips and premove headlight

You have to take the engine cover off to expose the headlight cover. Then locate the black headlight cover located inside under hood at rear of headlight. Gently depress clip and pop open cover. The rear of the bulb housing will pop out when you turn and pull. Replace bulb and reverse actions to reinstall. Hope this helps.

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.

    Cant get the bulb out of the headlight

  • Locate the headlight socket cover inside the engine compartment. The cover is on the back of the headlight assembly; it is round and made of plastic or rubber.
  • 2 Remove the headlight socket cover by pulling it off or twisting it to the left and then pulling it off. You can see the headlight socket once the cover is removed.
  • 3 Grip the headlight socket, turn it to the left and pull it out of the assembly. The light bulb is connected to the socket.
  • 4 Pull the bulb straight out of the socket and discard it in a waste receptacle.
  • 5 Plug the replacement bulb into the socket, taking care not to touch the glass. The oils on your skin can shorten the life of the bulb if you touch the glass. Wear gloves to prevent touching the glass.
  • 6 Place the socket back into the light assembly and turn it to the right to lock it in place.
  • 7 Slide the headlight socket cover over the socket and press on it to secure it, or turn it to the right, depending on how you have removed it in Step 2.
  • 8 Repeat Steps 2 through 7 to replace the other headlight bulb.

    Rubber bulb headlight cover


    The rubber cover protector for the base of the headlight halogen lamp can be ordered to your nearest Toyota dealer.

    The rubber cover protects the headlight's interior from water, moisture, and dirt. The headlight could function without it, but the your headlight will become darker when the dirt will be burn inside.

    Hope that helps you out!

    I am having problems with my 1988 Chrysler New Yorker motorized headlight covers. Both headlight covers don't close completely when I shut the headlights off. There is about 3 inches to go on both...

    I have the same problem with my 93 Salon. Take a look at the torsion bar rod end close to each headlight.There are collars that have a set screw which can be loosened to adjust the range of the door opening and closing. If the doors are going through the full cycle open to close but fall back and leave a gap such as you describe, most likely you will only need to adjust those screws. Each door will require adjustment individually. May require an allen wrench. Hope this helps.
