The Mitsubishi Lancer offers a simple design to facilitate changing your headlights. In some vehicles you have to remove the headlight assembly and other parts to access the headlight itself, but in the Lancer you do not need to mess with any other car parts except those on the assembly. The assembly is a composite system, meaning if the low or high beam lights fail you can replace it without having to replace the entire assembly.
