Bob is working on a 98 Mitsubishi Eclipse and wants to know how to remove the head and replace the gaskets with new gaskets. If you have a diagram it would be really good. If not, still OK. Thank's a bunch.

Or for a more in depth manual, mr airsoft is there.

Its pretty simple. Remove and mark the spark plug wires, all wires going to the manifold and throttle body.

Then unbolt the manifold and take it off with the throttle body still attached, don't remove any electrical components just disconnect the wiring harnesses

after that is done unbolt the heads and pull them off.
