Question about 1992 Honda Accord
Thanks Craig for your suggestion. Already replaced and the job is done. Actually, my job was much more complicated than you might have thought when you were coaching me on replacing a light bulb. I needed to replace the whole glass headlamp not just the light bulbs. I've worked on cars for a long time and was looking for some hints around having to remove the bumper cover. It DOES have to come off and I am not impressed with the design although usually I am, with Honda on the way they designed this for replacement. I just drilled some holes through the actual bumper which is fiber after removing the outer bumper cover and was able to remove the screws through the holes I drilled. THe little spring clamp on the light though is a royal pain. I don't know how one puts it back together without breaking the plastic retainers. Nevertheless, my light with a rock hole in it is out and the replacement is in and I'm driving again. Thanks for the reply.

For the driver's side headlight, yes, the battery must be removed to change the headlight. There are three screws but they don't have to be removed, just loosened enough to where the bulb can rotate ninety degrees to pull out. Be prepared to reenter the radio code as disconnecting the battery will cause the radio to electronically lock out. The radio code can be found on the security card or inside the user's manual if you're lucky.

SOURCE: headlight replacement
To remove the entire headlight assembly (not just the bulbs), the bumper has to be removed. There are two large nuts below the headlight assemblies (you'll have to remove the battery and overflow tank to get to the one on the passenger side), several mounting bolts behind the turn signals (single screw to remove these), and several retainers along the bottom. The whole bumper assembly can then be pulled forward. This will reveal at least three screws that hold the black headlight assembly frame to the body (along with the two on top to the radiator support).

SOURCE: Bumper cover removal
It is a little more complicated than that. There are two nuts below the headlight assemblies in the engine compartment. You will need to remove the battery and overflow bottle to get at the one on the passenger side. Remove the turn signals in the bumper, then there are 2 or 3 bolts holding a mounting bracket behind the each of the turn signals. There are a number of bolts with washer heads and reatiners on the underside of the bumper as the previous responder indicated.

easy there is a screw on both sides were bumper and fender meet just pop back fender liner its a phillips head. Then pop hood remove clips on black trim infont of radiator. Underside where bumper goes under car remove those clips and 10mm bolts after all is removed bumper just pulls off ...... may have to give it a hard **** a few times but it will come off. Should only take 15-20min to remove if its your first time
