This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the sixth generation (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016) Mitsubishi Mirage in changing a burnt out cargo area (or trunk) light bulb.

Owners of other Mitsubishi vehicles such as the Lancer, Outlander, Galant, Montero, Eclipse, 3000GT, Endeavor, Raider, Diamante, Attrage, Carisma, Colt, Grandis, Magna, Pajero, Space Star and the revised 2017 Mirage may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement miniature wedge base bulb is part number 2825 from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA. You can also use a brighter LED bulb.

Some Mirage models may have a number DE3022 festoon style cargo area light bulb.

The only tool needed to access and replace the light bulb is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

Pull Out Old Light Bulb
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or use a plastic automotive pry bar tool.

Insert the blade of the flathead screwdriver in to the small notch on the rear edge of the lens cover.

Gently pry out the light housing and remove it from the cargo area panel.

Press in the release tab on the white plastic electrical connector before sliding it straight out of its socket.

If the old bulb was recently turned on, be careful since it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.
