    how do i change a mitsubishi galant 2001 headligth bulbs

  • Anonymous Nov 16, 2008

    I have a 2000 Galant ES and why they made replacing a simple headlight this tough is beyond me. The owner's manual makes it seem easy, but it is not. What's with the rubber and the spring mechanism? With my other cars I just have to turn the bulb a quarter turn, pop it out, and put the new one in.

    I have tried getting the rubber sleeve off first to change the light bulb but it won't come off. I've tried to pull the connection off the rubbler sleeve because it's to big to fit through it but I don't want to break anything. Does the connection have to come off first before you take the rubber sleeve off?

    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.

    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 you change headlight on 2001 mitsubishi galant

    Your bulb is held on by a spring clip that goes around the base of the bulb. The plug on the back is hard to remove because you do not want to pull too hard and damage the spring clip. Using a trouble light or flash light to see, grab the rubber tab and peel the rubber cover back far enough to see the spring. Now locate tab on the end of the spring that is under neath the catch and slide the spring off the catch. Now you can pull the bulb out of the housing and get a good grip on it to pull the wire plug off the back.Grab the new bulb by the base being careful not to touch the glass of the bulb. Do Not Get Any Grease or Dirt on the Bulb. Place the bulb in the headlight, reattach the spring clip, put on the rubber cover, and plug in the wire harness. If you do get the bulb dirty or touch it by accident just wash it with some clean drying alcohol before installation.

    How to change the headlight bulb on a 2001 mitsubishi galant?

    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.
