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 license plate light bulb in the rear bumper cover.

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.

The only tool needed to access and replace the license plate light bulbs is a standard Phillips head screwdriver.
