Replace a headlight bulb with the specified bulb listed in the Mitsubishi Eclipse owner's manual. Most beginners can handle the bulb change in 15 to 20 minutes.
Owners need a flat head screwdriver, gloves, safety glasses and the bulb for this repair. Use gloves to prevent oils from transferring from hands. Clean bulbs with alcohol before putting them into the vehicle.

Car care sites recommend bulbs be changed in pairs for even lighting. Headlight lenses may need cleaning to prevent dimmed lighting. Additionally, select bulb replacements based on personal preference and driving conditions.
