Most Mitsubishi Monteros use bulbs in the headlight, rather than having a solid headlight. The headlight assembly is located between the turn signal light and the grille. You should also change the bulbs when replacing the headlight assembly. The assembly is attached to the truck's front clip, which is the entire front body panel, and is held in place with four bolts, two on each side of the headlight. No special tools are needed for this task, which can be done is less than an hour's time.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • 8mm wrench

    Raise the hood and install the hood prop. Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws in the grille. There are two screws directly in the grille and two more at the top of the front panel. Place the screws aside for reuse. Remove the grille from the SUV.

  2. 2

    Remove the Phillips-head screw at the top corner of the turn signal lens. Pop out the lens and unhook the light plug. Place the lens aside.

  3. 3

    Use the 8mm wrench to remove the four bolts that attach the headlight assembly to the frame. There is one bolt on the top and one on the bottom of both sides of the assembly. Unhook the bulb and remove the headlight assembly

  4. 4

    Set the new headlight assembly in place and secure it with the old bolts. Attach the new headlight bulb.

  5. 5

    Place the turn signal bulb in the turn signal lens and snap it into place. Secure it with the screw that you removed.

  6. 6

    Install the grille using the old screws. Tighten them, but don't over-tighten them, as they can break the grille. Remove the prop and close the hood.
