2015 Mirage Cargo Light
Small Notch - Rear Edge
Insert Flathead Screwdriver
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 2825 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.

Remove Light Housing
Disconnect Power Plug
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.

Remove Old Light Bulb
Old # 2825 Bulb Removed
Push In New 2825 Bulb
Pull the old light bulb straight out of the socket.

Push a new # 2825 light bulb straight in to the socket or use a brighter LED unit.

(If your Mirage has a festoon or "fuse" style light bulb, install a new DE3022 bulb.)

Pop In Power Plug
Re-Insert Light Housing
Test New Cargo Light
Push the power plug back in to its socket.

Re-insert the wires first and then pop the light housing back in to the cargo area panel.
