Outlander Sport Cargo Area
Cargo Area Light Bulb
Insert Flathead Screwdriver
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017) Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in changing a burnt out cargo area light bulb.

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

The compatible replacement miniature wedge base light bulb part number is 2825 (or W5W).

You can also use a brighter 2825 LED 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 avoid scratching the plastic surfaces, you can either wrap the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or use a plastic pry bar tool.

Insert the blade of the screwdriver in to the small notch on the rear edge of the light housing and gently pry it out of 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 when you remove it since it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Pull the old light bulb straight out of the socket.

Old # W5W (2825) Bulb
Push In New 2825 Bulb
Push In Electrical Connector


Push a new number 2825 light bulb straight in to the socket.

You can also use a brighter LED bulb.

Push the electrical connector back in to its socket.

Re-Insert Wires
Gently Pop In Light Housing
Test New Cargo Light
Re-insert the wires on the front edge of the housing back in to the cargo area panel.

Then gently snap in the retaining clip on the rear edge.

If the new light bulb didn't turn on as soon as you replaced the power plug, press the "Unlock" button on the key fob to re-activate the interior lights.
