First you disconnect the 3 prong electric plug. To disconnect squeeze the side tabs together (hard) and pull away from the bulb, then you can pull off the protective rubber covering, (its a little snug so give it a tug from the 2 tabs on the top and bottom).

Next unscrew the little Phillips head screw to loosen the bracket that clips in the bulb (take note of how the clip is installed before you remove it, it holds the bulb securely in place).
Just loosen the screw as you do not need to remove it all the way. Pull out the old bulb and replace it with the new one.

The bulb has 3 spacing tabs on it so it can only go in one way. Make note of this when you remove it so you may replace it the same way. follow the steps in reverse and your done.
Note: The little wire clip that holds the bulb in can be a pain. Make sure you get a really good look at it, since it pops out as soon as you loosen the screw. If you get lost, you can always look at the other headlight. Oh, and don't do this in the dark.

This is correct except your dont need to loosen any screws, at on my 03 galant you dont. The wire clip is a spring clip and just need to be unclipped and it will swing out of the way.

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.

How do I replace the headlight assembly MN133516


The 2003 Outlander utilizes replaceable (9007) headlight bulbs. If you're looking to replace the bulb(s);
1. Raise the hood.
2. Remove the plastic cover at the rear of the headlamp assembly by rotating it counterclockwise, and pulling it off. This will allow access to the headlight bulb.
3. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise in order to remove it from the headlamp assembly. Pull the old bulb out of the socket, and use a clean cloth to install the replacement bulb. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb.
4. Place the socket back into the assembly, and twist it clockwise. Reattach the plastic cover, and close the hood.
Are you needing DIY instructions for replacing the entire headlamp assembly? Left (driver) or Right (passenger)?

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.

    How to change a front headlight on a 2003 mitsubishi galant


    some models require you to remove the grill first to access the headlight mounting bolt and there is also the concern of the aim set bolt. be careful not to brake any of the hard to get to and easily breakable plastic parts or install may be more expensive than you may think. if you mean "change the bulb" simply find the electrical connector that lines up with where you can see the bulb from the outside and turn the connector a quarter turn and pull the bulb out from the rear. then remove the bulb while holding the socket firmly so as to not separate any wires. install is reverse of removal hope this helps

    I have a 2005 Mitsubishi Galant and am trying to change the headlight bulb. How do you remove the "dead" one ?


    There is a plastic ring that holds the bulb in place . You need to spin the ring counter clockwise to unhook the ring from the reflector. If the battery is in the way you may have to remove it before taking out the headlight. The wire harness unplugs from the back of the bulb but may be stuck. If you try to unplug the harness before removing the bulb you might brake the retaining ring. Therefore, turn the ring, wiggle the bulb free of the reflector, then get a grip on the bulb and work the harness plug off the bulb. Now place new bulb in the reflector, put on the retaining ring and turn clockwise till it stops, plug in the bulb harness, and test the bulb by turning on high and low beam.

    How do I change a headlight lamp in a 2003 VW New Beetle Turbo?


    The headlight is actually a bulb inserted into a light module. You can remove the plastic light module by releasing the tension spring on the rear of the headliht housing inside your hood. Once the tension spring is released pull the plastic light module from the fender socket by gently pulling on the edges of the headlight. The module should pull out with some minor difficulty. Remove the bad bulb from the rear of the plastic bubble, and replace it with a new halogen bulb. Replace the module into the fender socket and reclip the tension spring(s). Not all that difficult of a job once you know how its accomplished.
