How do you replace a bulb on a 2005 Honda Accord?
Never done it before but I found this info in a Honda Accord users forum. "After much research, and little info on "how-to", I replaced both stock 9006 low-beam bulbs on my 2004 Accord. Despite much info on removing fenderwell splash shields, I was able to open the hood, and reach the passenger side harness, remove plug, twist and remove bulb and reinstall- no problem. Driver's side required removing the battery, but same procedure. No problems, no cuts or bruises. Owners manual is unclear, Hayes 2003-05 Honda Accord repair manual is wrong, and the dealer charges $29.95 per bulb installed. Took me 10 minutes. Tried to save the radio settings with a 9V battery in the power plug (memory-saver) but that didn't work." Good luck.

Here is what works for a 1988 Accord 1. Open the retractable headlights. 2. Remove the plastic shroud around the headlight: two screws in front and one on each side. 3. Look to the outside of the headlight and you will see a single screw in a small plastic cover on the front inside edge of the sign…al light assembly. The headlight prevents you from getting at the screw straight-on. I broke it loose with an offset Phillips screwdriver, and then backed it out with a regular Phillips. 4. Remove the plastic cover, and you will see two screws. Remove them. 5. Now you can pull the turn signal assembly forward and out. 6. To remove the bulb holders from the assembly, twist counterclockwise and pull out. 7. Pull straight outward to remove the bulbs. To assemble, follow the steps in reverse. Note that there are two plastic rods on the back end of the turn signal assembly that you will insert into two holes in the channel of the fender. (MORE)
It is quite easy. Identify the bulb that is burned out and unplug it. You have to squeeze the center of the plug to unlock it as you are unplugging it. Once it is unplugged turn the end of the bulb to unlock it and it will come out of its hole. Next plug your new bulb into the plug and place the bul…b into the hole where the old bulb came out. Twist the back of the bulb and plug to lock it into place. If all else fails, go to Auto Zone or Oreilly's. They usually will help you put one in at no charge. dj OR DONT FOLLOW THE GUY ABOVE IF YOU HAVE A High Intensity Discharge lighting system installed in your Accord. The sticker saying shock may result and could be fatal means what it says! If you have HID lights (like my accord) then dont try and do it yourself. Also they are pre-charged using a 20,000 volt (maybe more) ballast which charges the lights to start. Dont mess with it if you dont know what you're doing. (MORE)
Hey Melissa==You can remove the bulb fronm the rear of the light and replace it. GoodluckJoe For Melissa and others: I will describe this as a left side change. Reverse left/right directions for the other side. Use a Philips head screw driver to remove the turn signal housing/lens assembly. The… screw remains captive in the housing. The screw is hard to see. Your screwdriver will fit in a hole in the bumper cover, just to the left of the orange signal lens, at an angle, pointing toward the left front wheel. After a few turns, gently pry the lens from the left end outward toward the right. If it doesn't come nicely, turn the screw some more. Once the housing is out, you can easily turn the bulb holder 1/4 turn to remove it and subsequently the bulb. I'd add that the right side of the lens housing (for the left side change described above) is held in only by a tab--so sliding the lens from right to left as you pry on the left side should pop the whole housing out.

There are 2 bulbs (per side). One in the corner lamp and one in the bumper. I'll assume you mean the one in the corner lamp. The one in the bumper you can easily see the screws. The corner lamp assembly doesn't use screws. It is held in by a retaining spring. If you look in the front corner of the e…ngine compartment, you'll see the tip of the spring coming out of a hole. Unhook the spring with your finger and the corner lamp assy should come right out. You can now change the bulbs. (MORE)
Unscrew the Bolts, however there may be from the inside. Turn left to loosen then twist off and replace bulb.
If your refering to the one that's in the front bumper it should be like this. As your looking at the light housing go to the side of it towards the grill. Look through the bumper holes and you'll see a white tube, inside of that is a Phillips head screw. You'll need a long handled Phillips for this…, but that's all that holds them.Good luck (MORE)
I have a Honda Accord 1991. I sprayed the bulb connection with WD-40. This loosened the grit and grime. I didn't get any on old bulb. This spray didn't harm the electrical connection. Read can label for details on spary characteristics. It is unscrewed from the backof the headlight assy. Sometimes y…ou have to take it off the car. I tried that and had problems. Here is why. 1. Start on the battery (passenger) side of the car even if that light bulb is okay. It will teach you how to do the other side (driverï¿½s) where space is more limited and things are harder to see. Besides, these two headlight bulb have the same life expectancy and if you do not do both now you will be back in a week or two. Remove the battery. 2. Remove the wire plug from the bulb. There is a little detent on the outside that, when pressed, allows the plug to be pressed downward. It is usually hard to move because the socket is actually inside the bulb base and the pins are in the socket on the wire. This setup makes the pressure applied on the outside of the plug somehow less effective and more force than one would expect needs to be applied to force the plug off the bulb. 3. The bulb is held in with a round plastic locking ring. It only needs to turn about 1/4 turn counter-clockwise to expose the ears on the bulb itself. The ring does not need to come off! Just turn in the direction indicated to ï¿½openï¿½. 4. The hard part is making the ring move. I am sure there are some grease ï¿½gorillasï¿½ out there that can just twist it off but I could not and, if you are reading this, I bet you couldnï¿½t either. Insert the point of a cold chisel (screw driver) in one of the slots in the plastic ring such that hitting the other end with a small hammer will drive the ring in the proper direction of rotation. This is one of those times when a nice sharp rap on the end of a cold chisel (screw driver) is the only thing that seems to work. Caution, you can break the ring but if you use a small hammer things should be fine. Generally, it will move surprisingly easy this way but will not budge by hand. 5. Once the ring moves it needs to be positioned so that the ears of the bulb can exit the socket. With a good light and good eyes you can see when they are clear. The bulb pulls straight out. 6. I connected the wire to the new bulb before I put it in the headlight assembly. I think it makes it easier to hang on to. You decide but, remember Do Not Touch The Bulb Glass! It heats to very high temperatures and any grease or dirt on the bulb will cause early or even instant burn out. 7. Push the bulb in to the back of the headlight assembly so that the ring can clear it as it turns clockwise to lock. You may need to lean on the ears a bit with the point of a screw driver to get them to set. I did not have to hit the ring to make it lock, however, I did lever the screw driver against it and frame pieces to make it turn. The protrusion on the ring should stop in the at 6 oï¿½clock position. (MORE)
You may have to remove the battery and air intake housing to gain access to the back of the passenger-side headlight assembly. Next you remove the (white) wiring harness plug by manually pressing it and pulling down. If there is dust accumulated inside the wiring plug and it doesn't easily come off,… you may have to push it down with a screwdriver. Next there should be a black collar that rotates around the light bulb base (turn counterclockwise to Open). The collar itself will not come out. Once you rotate it, the bulb should pop out the back of the headlight assembly. (MORE)

Is it just the bulb? Or the whole thing? There is a Philips-head screw holding the corner marker in place. It is easily seen from above when the hood is opened. Remove the screw. Gently pry between the body (use towel to prevent scratching) and the corner marker housing assembly. The assembly will n…eed to move directly forward. Other than the screw just removed, there is one metal pin and 3 plastic pins holding it in place. The metal one has a tendancy to stick with time. If the assembly doesn't come out, it's because of this metal pin. The pin is located at the very front very bottom of the assembly. To reach it, slide a screwdriver just behind where the corner light and headlight assemblies meet. The pin fits into a white socket that will look like a white ring - slide the screwdriver blade in front of the white ring to pry the pin loose. Bulbs are replaced by turning the bulb holder 1/4 turn and pulling out of the back of the housing. For ease of bulb replacement, you can unplug the bulb holders, as well. This procedure also works for the 1994 Honda Accord (and possibly for the 1995 1996 and 1997 Accords). This is how I did it... Remove the plastic plate just under the front turn signal... Lay on your back and scoot directly under neath looking up through some styro foam and you will see a screw that is encased in a plastic sheath... This prevents the screw from falling out... unscrew it and wha la... the turn signal comes right out. (MORE)
I am assuming this headlight is on the passenger side. I own a 96 Accord which is the same as a 97. the right headlight (low beam) is located in front the intake ( a black plastic part) which is right next to your battery. To change the low-beam head light bulb, remove the intake plastic cover (it i…s actually a tube), then remove the bad bulb by disconnecting the 9006 connector and twist the holder. After replacing the bulb, twist the holder back and reconnect the 9006 connector, install the intake cover and you are done. It is recommended to change both bulbs at the same time, however this is not required. More Information: The directions are above are great. except when twisting the holder it may stick. I found that taking a screwdriver and placing it on the little protruding black plastic piece and hitting it gently with a hammer will loosen the holder up. When looking at the holder from the front of the car it will turn to your right. Responses from people who used this answer: This was extremely helpful. I also had to tap the connector with hammer and screwdriver to remove it from the 9006 bulb connector wire. The rotating lock washer will not rotate the unlocked position while the connector is still on the 9006 bulb. Thank You. . Thanks to all ! These answers worked for me, I have a 96 Accord EX with a passenger side lamp out, I follow these suggestions and it was changed with in minutes with a little elbow grease. The hammer and screw driver suggestion was invaluble. Thanks again all !!! . This worked quite well for me. One thing to note: the 9006 lamp (bulb) itself won't turn, but the larger, dark gray locking ring does turn to release it. In other words, the connector for the bulb is initially pointing downward toward the ground, and it will remain that way after you turn the locking ring a quarter turn or less. . One answer above, the user talked about using a screwdriver to gently tap off the connector, while other users were talking about tapping off the lock ring. Works for both as I just did it for both. Also, if not sure which way the lock ring rotates, take a gander at it. There is a white or gray tab that sticks up in a curved slot. When the ring is in the locked position, the tab will be at one end of this curved slot that travels around it. Lastly, this lock ring doesn't come off to remove bulb, it simply rotates to the unlocked position, then the bulb will come right out. Easy job. . I signed up for this just to say thank to everyone for this info. The manual doesn't explain that you have to tap the circular locking mechanism with flat head and hammer. I spent 20 minutes trying to muscle the bulb to turn. You gotta love the internet. :) (MORE)
I haven't tried, but, I have the repair manual and it says that you first have to remove the bumper. Then disconnect the connectors and remove the five bolts holding the headlight in place. Install in reverse order. I am actually doing a search to see if someone has an easier method. (con't) I…t does look like you can just change a bulb (and not the entire headlight). The manual does not give that as an option. It looks like you can get to it from the back of the assembly. The headlight bulb does come off without you taking the whole thing out.It is a pain sometimes to get it off but just work with it, and if I remember right u have to take out radiator reseivor I managed to open the passenger side (inner side) bulb i.e High Beam. It was possible after taking the battery out. I am struggling to change the passenger side (outer bulb) i.e Low Beam (Headlight) but the air inlet hose pipe is in the way, dont know how to get it out of the way. (MORE)

If one side is out, first try a new flasher.Turn on the side that works to trace the noise.

This was on the underside of the assembly away from the radiator (towards the driver side). I couldn't get the Phillips screw out, so I removed the headlight and took out the 4 screws holding in the retractable bezel,I left the motor arm attached. After much contortion I snaked my hand in there and pushed out on the side of the assembly FURTHEST from the radiator and also pushed the plastic tube UP from the bottom and the assembly popped out like it was on a hinge.The "hinge" is the spring clip on the side closer to the radiator and it was easy to slide out, once the other side was free.

pretty much rotate the gray plastic locking ring, unplug the connector, and pull bulb out. Reverse to install. Do not touch new bulb with fingers or it may crack.
2000 Honda Accord headlight replacement. Under the hood on either side directly behind the lights are 4 small white plastic clips. Chose the correct clip (inner for high beams outer for low beams) press firmly on the bottom of the white clip and slide the clip off the bulb(it is similar to a light …socket in design). It may be a little hard due to deposits. You may need to spray some WD40 to loosen it. Once that is completed gently turn the bulb (it should make a clicking sound) then remove and replace. Be sure to listen for the click when replacing. Then just secure the clip back on the wire like plugging in a lamp. (MORE)
This is for replacing the low headlight bulb (not the high beams) for Honda Accord 2001. The driver side has more room to maneuver but the passenger side is a bit tight in space and narrower. Firstly, remove the clean air intake (Big black plastic tube behind the headlamp). Just pull right up in o…rder to give yourself more room to replace the bulb. Secondly, locate the bulb and remove the power clip from the bottom. I squeeze the plastic lock real hard (pain in the butts), then use the Philip screwdriver tip to put more pressure downward around the power clip cap's rim in order to fully release the cap from the headlight bulb. Thirdly, you will need a SHORT Length star screwdriver to unwind counter clockwise (facing toward the front of your vehicle from rear) 3 screws that hold the lightbulb in place. Lastly, replace the bulb but try not to touch the bulb's head with dirty bare hand. Secure the 3 screws back, snap the power clip back on firmly and the Black plastic tube. Good luck and have fun in doing so. _____________________________________________________________________ Note - handle the new bulb with cloths only. If you touch the bulb with your fingers clean the oils off with rubbing alcohol. Open the hood. If removing the right-side bulb, remove the battery and coolant reservoir. Reach behind the headlight assembly, grasp the bulb retaining collar, turn it counter-clockwise, then pull out the bulb/holder assembly. (The bulb/holder assembly is shown as a right angle holder, maybe an inch in diameter, bent at a right angle and the wires coming out the bottom. The collar is perhaps 3 inches diameter and looks pretty flat against the body.) The bulb is removed by pulling straight out. Installation is the reverse of removal __________________________________________________________________________ (MORE)

Access to the headlight bulbs is in the wheel wells. Turn the steering wheel in the direction opposite the bulb you want to change. For example, turn the wheel all the way to the left to expose the right wheel well for the right bulb. Examine the replacement bulb to become familiar with it's shape a…nd the electrical connection. This may be a blind one handed operation. Feel the back to the installed bulb to find the plastic clip that holds the electrical socket on the bottom of the bulb. Pull back the top of the clip and slide it off of the bulb. Each headlight bulb holder (2 on each side) has 3 Phillips head screws that clamp the holder in place. Turn the bulb 1/4 turn to remove it from the socket. ( If the bulb does not move you will have to loosen those 3 cad-plated screws about one turn, then you can turn the bulb holder 1/4 a turn to remove from the socket.) Remove the new bulb from the package and do not touch the bulb - the grease from your fingers will cause a hot spot and result in premature failure. Reach back into the wheel well and insert the bulb into the opening. Turn the bulb 1/4 turn to secure it. The electrical connector should face downward. Slide the electrical connection onto the bulb sliding it up until the clip clicks into place. Test the bulb. It's a good idea to change both bulbs when one goes out. (MORE)
I just did this for the low headlights... (not the high beams), and thought i'd post how i managed: the drivers side is a piece of cake... on the passenger side you need to remove the clean air intake. its a big piece of black plastic behind the headlamp. pulls right up. no big. but you'll have w…ay less room to maneuver than on the drivers side. If you're doing both start with the drivers side bulb to get a sense of whats going on. it's impossible to get a sense of whats going on on the passenger side. locate the bulb and remove the power clip from the bottom. there is a plastic lock that you have to hold down while you push to casing down. i had to use the tip of a screwdriver to put enough force on the clip-casing to manage this. now the hard part: there is a black ring that locks the bulb into place. this has to be twisted (when facing the toward the car) counter clockwise. molded into the plastic are the words lock and open. twist toward open. this is a massive pain in the a**. i had to use a screwdriver to get a little bit of leverage, make sure you're only twisting the black plastic ring and not the bulb. the bulb does not turn. once the ring is removed the bulb twists and comes right out. follow the directions in reverse making sure not to touch the new bulb's glass with your fingers. apparently the oil from your fingers can shorten the bulbs life... or so I've been told. it takes a little while and that damn lock ring is tough to get off. but its not that bad. good luck 2004 Accord - The driver side low beam is the tough one. The other three should be relatively easy to change. I actually had to remove the battery and the entire air filter housing to get the dirver side low beam out. One tip that may help you is to put a rag in under the bulb area to block things falling to out of the way places. I dropped the first bulb I bought to never-never land. I put a rag in the open spot to prevent this from happening with the second bulb I bought. I just replaced the driver side low beam bulb. The bulb cost about $9 - I guess this is a standard halogen bulb, standard equipment, nothing special - GE replacement bulb 9006. I approached it from the wheel well, in front of the front driver's side wheel. I first turned the steering wheel to the far right to clear the path. Then I crudely yanked and twisted part of the plastic shield in the front part of wheel well out of the way - alas breaking off some of the snaps holding this shield to the metal body on outside edge of the well. I was able to clearly see the white bulb holder with a flashlight. With difficulty in the tight space, I unscrewed the 3 screws holding the bulb in place with a stubby (short) Phillips screwdriver. I was able to pull the brown plastic base of the bulb out of the white holder (while simultaneously squeezing the plastic tag on the bottom to release the catch). Reassembly was quick, I guess I'll have to buy some of those black plastic snap buttons some time. 2004 Honda Accord The above technique works well. After removing only 2 plastic snap buttons and one metal screw from the bottom left of the front fender, I was able to pull the flexiable plastic cover out to expose the bulb. Very small space to work with. However, it is easier to remove the light harness first, then unscrew the 2-3 screws to remove the bulb. I found that after removing the bulb with the wire harness still attach make it difficult to remove the bulb due to tight space. It took me 15 minutes to change this. 2004 Honda Accord: 2002 Honda Accord Ok, the main thing is to remove the top screw and outside screw first. Then twist and pull out the bulb. Finally, press on the white clasp and pull out the bulb. Replace and twist back in. Finally, add the scews and your done. I was able to remove the bulb in about 5 minutes. I turned the wheels hard right, and removed one pin from the wheel well shroud. Pull back some more of the plastic and the bulb is easily visible. I was able to get a full-size screwdriver into the hole and unscrewed the left screw until it was a little loose. You can easily avoid losing any by just unscrewing this one screw halfway. Then I simply twisted the bulb to the left (counterclockwise) and pulled it out, then simply pulled it out of the wiring harness, put the new one into it, and placed the bulb back into the headlamp. Twist it back to the right (clockwise) and tighten the screw to secure the bulb. 2004 Honda Accord I found everything above helpful. However, my circumstances were a little different. I had two people who were experienced at doing minor repairs try to change the driver side low beam and they just couldn't figure it out. So my wife found this site on the inter-net and showed me your results. I pulled the plastic shield back as written above, but it was just to tight to get my hand up in there. So, I removed the battery & I took a pair of needle nose pliers & squeezed the catch for the harness off the old bulb. then I simply just turned & pulled the old bulb out. The I just put the new bulb in, connected the harness, & I connected the battery. Knowing what I now know, I could have did the job in about 10 minutes. Make sure you have your alarm control handy to shut the anti-theft alarm off when you're disconnecting & reconnecting the battery. I hope this is helpful, & thank you to everyone who has taken the time to share your experiences. 2000 Honda Accord 4-door 1. Gently insert a slotted screwdriver into the clip release (you will not have enough leverage to release it by hand). 2. Using your hand or another screwdriver (a necessity on the passenger side), gently work the white plastic clip downwards on each side until it fully disengages from the power socket of the bulb. 3. Grasp the bulb power socket (the black plastic butt of the bulb that just detached from the clip) and turn counter-clockwise, about an 1/8 of a revolution. 4. Pull the bulb out carefully 5. Optionally place 'bulb lube' into the power socket of your replacement bulb, but be sure to not touch the bulb glass with your fingers (due to oils in the skin which may or may not affect bulb life). Do not try to remove the glass bulb from its plastic base. 6. Insert replacement bulb and reverse the 1/8 turn performed in step 3. 7. Attach the clip until the clip release snaps into position. Please note: On this model year at least, you do not need to remove any metal screws (there are 3 on the socket housing) and you shouldn't need to remove the air intake, air filter box or battery! Even if you're not replacing it, try the above steps on the driver's side bulb first. It will save you time when you're playing Dr. with a couple of screwdrivers on the passenger side! P.S. Not long ago, headlights were replaced as one piece: a big chunk of glass with a bulb built into it that you'd pull out from the front of the car. Newer headlights, including these Honda units, are made of a permanent housing that a replaceable bulb fits into from the rear. You should not remove the headlight as a whole to replace a bulb in this vehicle. (MORE)

Wow! I can't believe nobody's answered this question. I need the answer too! There is a small access hole near the bulb, but it's too small for your hand and the bulb is too far from the hole to use much force with your fingers. I've tried removing the whole assembly, but can only find one screw… on top. When you remove the screw the assembly seems somewhat loose but won't come out. There must be an easy solution for such a common replacement item. I have a 1998 Accord LX. Some help, please. Greg Might I add to this. Yes, starting off with the screws on top is part of the process; however, there are hidden screws on either side of the assembly as well. In order to access these 10MM screws, you would need to remove the front bumper. As with Civics and Accords, there are typically 2 bolts on the bottom, a screw on side side by the wheel well, and 2 more screws (that pop in or out) directly under the front of the hood that hold the bumper into place. It's a hassle to just change the corner bulbs! (MORE)

Buy a bulb from the Honda dealer or auto parts store (so you get the right one). You will need to remove the instrument cluster trim panel, and then remove the instrument cluster itself. Change out the bulb. Detailed instructions can be found at Alldata and on the internet.
Replacing the bulb on the passenger side headlamp is simple; however, the driver's side bulb is extremely difficult to access. This is a WORTHLESS answer. Actually, it's not an answer.! I voted the Question as being recommended (worth asking) but Not the Answer as in having any worth at all. …There are 3 little screws that are holding each bulb. You need a pair of small hands :) and a small Philips screwdriver or a small ratchet with a Philips screwdriver bit. unscrew one of the screws completely and loosed the other 2. You should now be able to take the bulb out, put a new one and tighten the screws back. (MORE)
tell your gf to do it she got small hands it should do the job :D o believe me my gf did mine within 15mins top; she just unscrewed it and replace them and rescrew them back on. BAM NEW LIGHTS :D
It's pretty simple. For both high and low bulbs you twist the plastic coupling until its in a position that enables you to slide the plug along with the old build connected to it. Take the old bulb out, put the new one in, push the bulb inside the holder in the correct position, lock the coupling ba…ck on and your good to go. (MORE)
Answer There are two bulbs, one for high beam, one for low. Lets assume you are asking about the low beam (procedure for high beam is similar, just a different bulb). At your local auto parts store you should find a part number book in the headlight section. Look up the part number (#9006 should… appear somewhere) for the local brand bulb for the Accord. This bulb assembly has a coating on the end of the bulb, can be silver or black. Remember not to touch the bulb glass! If you do the oils in your fingerprints will etch into the glass at the high temperature when the headlight is on, and lead to premature failure of the bulb. If you DO accidentally touch the glass, use alcohol and a clean cloth to clean it thoroughly. Pop the hood and locate the low beam bulb (it is outermost in the assembly, closest to the car's fender). It will have a small wiring harness connecting to the bulb with a plastic connector. The bulb assembly is "L" shaped, the cylindrical bulb and its 3 surrounding tabs being at right angles to its connector, which is attached to the wiring harness connector. The bulb/tab part locks into the middle of a plastic housing. There are three screws spaced around the opening, but the tabs and an interior O-ring are what holds the bulb assembly in place, NOT the screws (leave those alone!). With the wiring harness connector still attached (for leverage), rotate the bulb assembly counter clockwise (may take some wiggling and a bit of force). The bulb assembly will then be free from the plastic housing. Now remove the wiring harness connector by using a small slot head screw driver to pry the locking tab in the base connector away from the bulb assembly. while simultaneously pushing the connector off the bulb assembly. Expect to do more wiggling and prying to get it free (don't pull on the wires! pull on the plastic connector!), and then discard the bulb assembly. Plug the new bulb assembly into the wiring harness connector and insert the bulb/tab part back into the plastic housing, then rotate clockwise until you hear it (or feel it) snap into locked position. You will probably want to turn on your headlights and check that the low beam is working again :-) The job is complete once you've cracked a beer, grunted, and pointed at the car while exclaiming, "Hah! I win!" (MORE)
If you are changing the drivers side low beam light bulb, pop thehood & support it. 1) Grasp the power steering reservoir firmly and lift it straightup off its bracket. Move the reservoir out of the way to access thelow beam headlamp bulb. 2) Get a screwdriver and loosen the screws. Some people ma…y notneed to loosen any of the screws, while others may only need toloosen 1 or 2 [there is a total of 3]. However, the more loose theyare, the easier it'll be to twist and remove the bulb. 3) Grasp the bulb firmly; no need to disconnect the wiring at thistime. Twist counterclockwise while you push in to release bulb fromhousing. 4) Once done, depress clip holding socket to bulb to separate. 5) To install: reverse procedure. Also it seems that the washerreservoir is in the way, but it is not (it's just a pain!). Make sure you don't touch the glass part of the headlight with yourfingers to avoid leaving oil on the light that could cause theglass to break- trust me, you don't want to change these any morethan necessary! *I had to use a wrench to gently turn the bulb housing counterclockwise and a screwdriver to gently shimmy loose the old bulb outof the socket.

To get to the driver side bulb, park your car....turn the wheel as far as it can go right, pop out the pannel in the wheel well, that should get you access to that bulb. You should be able to reach down on the passanger side through the engine compartment.. An alternative to popping out the pannel …in the wheel well and breaking the round mounting devices, you can simply remove the batter and get to both low beam and high beam bulbs right from the engine compartment.

It is really simple. All you have to do is remove the plastic cover for the map light and the bulb is right there. If you put a screwdrive in the middle side fo the clear cover you can pry the cover off and have access to the light. The cover is made to be removed this way so don't use excessive pre…ssure or you might break it. (MORE)
You got to an autoparts store and buy a 9006 bulb. You open the hood, using the bracing metal strut so it won't close on your head or hand. You twist the burnt out bulb to get it out of the plastic housing. It's always the second direction you try. So if you try clockwise, it needs to be turned coun…terclockwise. Or vice versa. I don't know how they do that, must be something in another dimension of space.. Then, when you can see what's going on, you take the old bulb off by finding the right plastic tab to press down. You look at it to confirm that it is burnt out -- it always is -- and throw it away.. Now ou open the new bulb with a paper towel or napkin in hand so your fingers don't touch the glass -- there is an important superstition that halogen bulbs, as so many are nowadays, will explode if you fingerprint them. I have no idea if this is true, because I don't take those kind of chances.. Now you snap the bulb back into the wire connector. There is some Murphy's law thing about putting the bulb back into the plastic headlight housing first, but if you do that, you won't be able to see how the bulb goes into the wire connector. So first you put it back on the wire. Now you can hold it by the plastic connectors, and try to get it back into the headlight housing. Again, however you put it in first will be wrong, and maybe several trials will be necessary, because the fitting isn't symetrical.. But eventually you will get it into place, and can turn the car on and test the new bulb.. Some autoparts stores will sell you conductive bulb grease, which will insulate the connection and reduce burnouts from moisture. You don't really need this, because now you know how to change the headlight.. By the way, this is all in the manual. You didn't RTFM, did you?. --Mark Zanger. mzanger-at-comcast-dot-net. This bulb is behind the battery and difficult to reach or even see. I had to remove the battery first. . It is probably easier to remove the plastic inner fender well and go in behind the bulb from the front wheel well. Less skinned knuckles, too. There are 3 phillip head screws that secure the bulb in. Loosen the screws, turn the socket till tabs clear screws. Squeeze tab on socket connector to remove bulb from socket. -Dugtam (MORE)

All parts of a vehicle are held together by 2 or 3 screws or bolts. Find the screw(s) in the immediate area of what you are trying to fix and remove them. At times you have to remove more than a few screws and bolts to get to the problem you are working on. But on a tailight I would say it is only 2… screws, and then pull the plug and remove bulb and replace. (MORE)
You have to go through the trunk. There should be a plastic panel that pops right off. just unscrew the round cable that the bulb is attached to and you can pull it out, replace the bulb, and pop it right back in. VERY easy. Hope this helps.
You can replace freon depending on how much you need for as littleas twenty dollars. It more than likely will require labor whichwill add at least 75 dollars to this price.

To replace a Honda Accord EX 2002 climate control light you have to detach the bezel - a black plastic frame that covers the clock and hazard lights switch, the vents, the climate control unit and the audio system. Note that the climate control unit and the vents are actually attached to the bezel f…rom behind and come off with the bezel as one part, so do not attempt to separate them! You will need small tweezers, a small flat screwdriver and a rather long Phillips one (and the replacement light bulb of course). The bulbs are accessed from the back side of the climate control unit.. Disconnect the negative battery terminal. . With a small flat screwdriver pry out the clock and hazard lights switch unit from the bottom. It comes off easily. Disconnect the unit from the wires. . Unscrew and take out the screw behind the clock that holds the bezel in place. Be careful not to drop it. (Take a string and tighten a little noose around it when unscrewed for quarter of an inch or so.) . Unscrew the 2 screws at the bottom of the bezel that hold it from below. . Pull the bezel straight towards you (this is the hard part). There are 3 spring-loaded holders behind the bezel which has to be snapped out. The bottom side of the bezel separates easier (being held with just one spring); once it separates stop pulling on it (lest you break the bezel) and pull on the upper side until it also separates. When done, check the little steel springs that are snapped on the 3 protruding parts of the bezel. If misplaced snap them back in place. Disconnect the climate control units from the wires. . Put the bezel face down on a soft surface. Take out the burnt bulb by turning it 45 degrees counterclockwise with a small flat screwdriver and pulling it out with tweezers. Insert the new bulb and secure it by pushing on it and turning 45 degrees clockwise with the screwdriver. . The reassembly order is quite obvious: connect the climate control wires; snap the bezel in by pushing gently but firmly; insert and tighten the 3 screws; reconnect the hazard lights switch and the clock; snap back it; reconnect the battery negative terminal.

Hi, if this is a manual unit (no digital screen display) follow these steps : Prey the bottom side of the clock box to remove it first (with flat head screwdriver, cover with tape to prevent scratch !) then unplug its 2 connectors by pressing a clip on the side, shaking a little when pulling out. T…here is 1st screw right behind the clock and other 2 screws on the bottom edge of the panel (below radio) . Remove all three screws and 2 knobs of the climate control unit . Gently lift from the bottom of the panel (at the 2 screws just removed), there are 2 clips on both sides and 2 others on top of the panel, so you can prey or just lift the panel slowly . Unplug 2 connector behind the unit (do not forget press the clips) From the back of the unit, there are 1 bulb with wire on the blower knob, turn just a little counterclockwise to remove . 3 other bulbs locate inside three round slots (easy to see with white flat bases), use flat head screwdriver to turn just a little as other bulb . Now you can change all 4 new bulbs then before to do the reverse steps : Try to plug in only the connector on the unit (NOT the blower knob) to test the bulbs ( ignition key ON ) . There is another bulb on the clock box if it needs to be replaced too. Have fun .......! (MORE)
Pry the lens (the white part) from the rear near the two sides with a flat screw driver. Don't pry the ring/edge around it. Take the bulb straight out or pry it out. Press the new bulb in the slot and press the lens back on.

You may want to consider replacing both left and right at the same time in order to keep brightness and color equal (optional). The owners manual will be of no help in detailing how to replace the bulb. You gain access to the driver side headlight bulbs through the wheel well. Removing the tire/wheel helps considerably. You access the passenger side bulbs by removing the battery. (MORE)
If its for the 90s models its just a screw in the inner side of the light housing on the bumper. See sources and related links below for bulb information.
The 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid with a 4 cylinder does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain and there is no specific schedule as to when it need to be changed. If the care is a V-6 follow the manualÃs recommended 90,000 miles to change the timing belt.
It's not too bad: since Honda finally got tired of all the complaints from their mechanics about having to spend three hours doing a 20-minute job and put the alternator in front of the engine (it used to be behind it, and you could barely get it out), the job is: 1. Unhook the battery. 2. Disconne…ct all the wires going to the alternator. There should be two. You can't mix them up because one is a huge plug and the other is a ring lug. 3. Remove the top bolt and loosen the bottom one. Push the alternator toward the engine and remove the belt. 4. Remove the bottom bolt and lift out the alternator. 5. Take the old one and the belt to the auto parts store. Exchange the alternator and get a new belt. (I do it this way so I don't have to pay a core deposit. Alternately, buy the new parts before you start, and use "return the old alternator to the store" as a reason to go driving.) 6. Set the new alternator in place. Hook up the bolts and wires, but leave the bolts loose enough that you can adjust the alternator. 7. Put the belt on and set its tension by gently pulling back on the alternator. You want about 1/2" deflection in the middle of the longest run. Tighten both bolts good and tight. 8. Hook up the battery and you're done. Go for a ride! (MORE)
