Step 1: Remove Wire Harness. Find the wires and their harness connected to the back of the bulb. To make sure you have the right harness, wiggle it while looking through the clear lens. If the bulb moves while wiggling the the harness, you have the right one. To remove the harness, simply pull it straight back away from the bulb and off the bulb prongs.
Step 2: Remove Rubber Seal Boot. Note the orientation of the boot (typically, the two rubber tabs extending out the back are at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions). The most exposed edge of the boot is underneath the bulb when viewing from above. Feel underneath for the edge and peel it back away from the bulb housing. Work your way around the bulb housing peeling more of the boot back as you go. You may have to work your way around a few times to complete disengage the boot from the bulb housing. Don't worry about the part of the boot around the bulb prongs. It will slide off easily once the boot is disengaged from the bulb housing.
Step 3: Open Wire Clip. The bulb is held in place by a wire clip. DO NOT unscrew this clip! Find the tab opposite the screw, push it toward the front of the vehicle then pull it up vertically. The wire clip will pivot back. It pivots on the anchor held by the screw.

    Step 4: Remove Bulb. Once the wire clip is open, the bulb is
    just resting in the bulb housing. Note the bulb orientation since the
    new bulb will have to go in the same way (typcially, the three prongs
    are in the 9, 12, and 3 0'clock positions). Simply pull it out and
    maneuver it out of the bulb housing and past the wire clip.

    Step 5: Install New Bulb. Practice closing the clip and opening
    the clip without a bulb in the housing. Once you get a feel for it,
    move the clip out of the way and place the new bulb in the. WARNING:
    KEEP BULB CLEAN -- no contaminants and no fingerprints. Handle the bulb
    by the metal prongs and maneuver it into the housing in the same
    orientation as the old bulb.

    Step 6: Close Wire Clip. Close the wire clip over the new bulb as you practiced in Step 5 ;p

    Step 7: Install Rubber Seal Boot. Maneuver the boot into the
    same orientation it was in before removal. Place the center hole of the
    boot over the bulb prongs. Push the bottom edge of the boot onto the
    bulb housing and work your way around until it is fully engaged with
    the housing.

    Step 8: Connect Wire Harness. Align the wire harness to the bulb prongs and push it on.

    Step 9: Test. Turn on the headlights and make sure it works.

    Step 10: Drink.

    For Driver's side bulb remove the housing over the air intake before
    starting. The two fasteners pull straight out with a little tug with
    pliers. Save fastners, you will need them to reinstall cover later.

    Same procedure as passenger side now except that space is VERY
    TIGHT. Be gentle with the wirecage move, as rescrewing the cage
    probably couldn't be done with conventional tools and you will end up
    back at the shop to have them pull battery and air cleaner to get in to
    this space.

    Good luck. I am sure the dealers charge at least $100 to do
    this paininthea** job. So you are saving some dough for the aggro.
    Owners manual actually has a reasonably good diagram and I recommend
    looking at it.

How do I replace a headlight on a 2000 Honda Accord?

I HIGHLY recommend CrystalView Headlight Cleaner. It is about $30, they sell it at auto stores and even Wal-Mart. It cleaned my dirty headlights very nicely. Follow the instructions perfectly and you wont be let down, I assure you.

While you're at the auto-store, you can find your replacement bulbs (REPLACE BOTH HEADLIGHTS!!) in the books the stores provide.

I can't figure out how to replace the front turn signal

There is one screw on top of headlight assembly that holds turn signal lens in place you have to remove that screw and pull lens straight out. As far as head lamps go its just a matter of getting your hand behind headlight assembly to remove the collar that holds the bulbs in place.
