Replacement of lamp bulbsReplacement of lamp bulbs  - Maintenance - Mitsubishi ASX Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi ASX

Before replacing a bulb, ensure the lamp is off. Do not touch the glass part of the new bulb with your bare fingers; the skin oil left on the glass will evaporate when the bulb gets hot and the vapour will condense on the reflector and dim the surface.

• Bulbs are extremely hot immediately after being turned off. CAUTION

• Bulbs are extremely hot immediately after being turned off.

When replacing a bulb, wait for it to cool sufficiently before touching it. You could otherwise be burnt.

• If you are unsure of how to carry out the work as required, we recommend you NOTE

• If you are unsure of how to carry out the work as required, we recommend you to consult a specialist.

• Be careful not to scratch the vehicle body when removing a lamp or lens.

• When it rains or when the vehicle has been washed, the inside of the lens sometimes becomes foggy. This is the same phenomenon as when window glass mists up on a humid day, and does not indicate a functional problem.

When the lamp is switched on, the heat will remove the fog. However, if water gathers inside the lamp, we recommend you to have the lamp checked.

When replacing a bulb, use a new bulb with the same wattage and colour.
