Question about 1991 Honda Civic
How do you replace the bulb in a 1991 Civic front side marker fixture?
2008! Well I just now saw your question, since I was doing the same job on my 1988 civic hatchback. The side marker/turn signal/parking light lamp needed those 2 bulbs replaced on, on each side.
I tore into the right side first. I unscrewed the 2 screws, but to no avail. I wiggled it hard, and stick screwdrivers in there to pry it out. I knew I was going to break something. Then I cracked the glass. I can glue that back on.
Then I just went for it. I kept pulling until it snapped out.
Turns out insider there were these 2 "bracket clips" that you could only get at...if you broke the thing off, like I just did. They are plastic, and snapped off, brittle-ly broke. But I got it off. Honestly, there is no way, on this car, to get those off without breaking them off. That internal bracket is not accessible. Perhaps, I would have to take out the whole headlamp and then I could access these brackets. Headlamp dis-assembly seems extremely time consuming. Not even sure if that would work.
With the new side marker part being $29 on rockauto, I might as well buy two. I plan to break off the other side sooner or later too now.
I think the past owner must have gotten replacements, and they came like this...as if they are one whole piece together with the headlamp, put in together as one, and to be taken out as one!
But maybe you have the same deal.
Those two screws, well I put it back together, and it holds it in. It's not a tight fit, but it holds. Now I have to order those bulbs.
