For a 2001 Eclipse here is what you do.

Pull out the plug that gives the light bulb juice, and remove the rubber seal around it. Then there is a little latch that will pull a little bit down and out [just like a safety pin]. THen pull out the bulb. Put the bulb in, and re-attach the pin. Then just pop the rubber seal back on [be sure to let the prongs of the bulb protrude so you can hook it back up], and then plug the energy source back into the bulb.

Then, wah-lah! You once again have headlights.

Good luck! You can do it!

To replace the headlight you have to remove the whole headlamp housing. Remove all 4 screws and unplug the harness in the back. there should be 2 screws on the back of the bulb remove those and change out the light.

easy fix.

I hope its not too late - i have a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS and have had to change the headlights bulb also. You will not need any tools to do this.

Just open the hood, stick your hand directly behind the headlight you wish to change (preferbably when the engine is cool - its hot down there!)

Your feeling for a rubber gasket (round dark colored rubber thing, reminds me of the tub stopper).

When u find the gasket pull it out and Voila there's the bulb.

Simply disconnect the bulb from the other plastic piece (has wiring attached to it).

Remove the bulb from the rubber gasket change it and then put it back together

And its veryyyyyyyy simple, if it helps I'm a female and did this very quickly (no I'm not a mechanic either)
