2015 Outlander Sport Fog Light
Plastic Pry Bar Tool
Gently Pry Out Trim Cover
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 fog light bulb in the front bumper cover.

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 halogen fog light bulb part number is H11.

If you would like to have brighter fog lights, choose H11 LED bulbs.

The only tool needed to access and replace the old light bulb is a plastic pry bar tool or a flathead screwdriver covered with thin a micro fiber cloth.

Plastic Trim Piece Removed
Fog Light Housing Exposed
Phillips Head Screws
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces or possibly damaging the paint on the front bumper cover, I recommend that you use either a plastic automotive panel pry bar tool or a flathead screwdriver wrapped in a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the pry bar tool in between the black plastic trim panel and the bumper cover.

Gently pry out the trim piece. You may to re-insert the tool at the other side of the cover and pry again.

Try to avoid using excessive force, the trim cover should pop out relatively easily.

Set the trim panel aside in a safe place.

The fog light bulb housing is held in place by three Phillips head screws.

Loosen Counterclockwise
Three Screws Removed
Remove Light Housing
Remove the three screws by turning them counterclockwise with a Phillips head screwdriver.

Set the three screws aside in a safe place.

Gently remove the fog light housing from the bumper cover.

Disconnect Power Plug
Base of Old Light Bulb
1/4 Turn Counterclockwise
Press the release tab on the electrical connector before sliding the power plug straight off the base of the old light bulb.

Place the housing face down on a soft surface that won't scratch the glass lens cover such as a micro fiber towel.

Rotate the base of the old light bulb 1/4 turn counterclockwise before pulling it straight out of the housing.


Old # H11 Light Bulb
Insert New Light Bulb
1/4 Turn Clockwise - Lock
Try to avoid touching the glass part of the new halogen bulb with your fingers.

If you do get the new bulb dirty, clean it with a paper towel and some rubbing alcohol.

Insert the new number H11 light bulb in to the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

Push On Power Plug
Tighten 3 Phillips Screws
Line Up Plastic Cover
Push the power plug straight on to the base of the new light bulb until it clicks securely in to place.

Re-insert the fog light housing in to the bumper cover and spin in the screws a few turns by hand to hold it in place.

Tighten the screws by turning them clockwise with the Phillips head screwdriver until they are snug.

Line up the black plastic trim cover and gently pop it back in to place over the fog light housing.
