On a Newer Vehicle you'll replace the Headlight Bulb Open the engine compartment hood.
Locate the back of the headlight to determine the lamp and bulb type. Decide which bulb you need to replace. Purchase the correct bulb for your headlamp. Behind the headlight the lamp the socket is removable. Remove Socket then replace lamp (bulb). Carefully re-install the socket
On Older vehicles:
Remove the screws that connect the headlamp frame to the bracket holding the headlamp. Make certain you turn only the screws that hold the lamp frame, not the adjusting screws. Disconnect the electrical connector in the back of the lamp by pulling the socket away from the headlamp with your hand. Remove the headlight from the bracelet area and discard it. Replace with the new headlight, making sure that it is positioned right side up. Plug the wire socket into the new headlight, which holding the headlight securely. Replace the headlight into the frame. Place the frame onto the headlight bracket. Reattach the screws to hold the frame and bracket in place. Do not adjust the setting screws for the direction the headlight shines.
At night partk in front of a wall and shine your lights on the wall so see if the headlight shifted during installation.
to replace the headlights themselves, no. under the hood, find the headlight. where it connects to the headlight lamp, it should simply twist off and pull out. Then you must unclip the clip holding the light on. It sounds sort of confusing, but it's really easy! Let me know if you need a bit more clarification.
open the bonnet, locate a screw on top of the headlight and undo it, locate two screws between the centre grill and headlight and undo them and locate a screw right behind the headlight assembly and loosen it. Now the whole headlight should come out. It wont come all the way out. By unplugging the electrical plug you can take it out completely. Lift up the lock thats hold the rear headlight cover and that will expose the internals of the headlight and then you can change whatever globe you want. First disconnect the wiring plug from the globe and then release the clip holding the globe and replace the globe and make you sure you dont touch the glass part of the new globe which installing. Touching it will shorten the globes life and there is a chance that it might explode inside and create mess. You need to buy H7 type globe for low beam.
Since it's on the passenger side you'll need to remove the air filter housing & filter to get to the housing for the bulbs. Right behind that bulb housing there are two rubber coated caps (those caps are where the bulbs are located) that you'll need to remove. They can be tough to remove so it should be ok to use a flat head screwdriver to GENTLY pry the caps. Just make sure you are GENTLE with it and once it is loose use your hand to turn it counterclockwise about 1/4 turn. Gently pull it out then unplug the wire harness to it.
**** IMPORTANT*** Like most headlight bulbs, DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BULB WITH YOUR BARE HANDS. Halogens are ruined by our natural oils and it will make your new bulb burn out extra fast. Also: The outside bulb should be the LOW BEAM and the inside should be the HIGH BEAM. Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll be happy to help.
You need to remove the front bumper. Five push clips along the hood line, remove the headlight wipers (if equipped), one T25 screw in the front of each fender well, then two 12mm bolts under the headlights (1 each side). Then there are 4 10mm bolts holding the headlight in.
I have not done this yet but I have seen a DIY on hondacivicforums.com. From what i hear to remove the headlight assembly you have to remove the front bumper to get to screws that hold the headlight assembly on.
