Replacement of lamp bulbsReplacement of lamp bulbs  - For emergencies - Mitsubishi Carisma Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Carisma

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 vapor will condense on the reflector and dim the surface.
