How to change the whole headlight assembly on a 05 Honda CRV

I've recently hit a trunk's bumper with my CRV because of the icy roads, and cracked my driver front headlight lamp. I'd like to know how to change the whole hedlight assembly unit on a 2005 Honda CRV (not just the bulb). Do I have to remove the front bumper in order to access the bolts and screws?

    Thanks for the quick reply! I haven't tried yet because it's still really cold out there and it's holiday season so I couldn't get a new headlight assembly yet. But thanks for the advise, good to know that i don't have to remove the front bumper. I'll post the result once I have a chance to try the solution out.

    I tried removing the two vertical 10mm screws but the entire unit still appears to be connected somewhere?

You have to remove the front bumper and grill etc

There are 5 bolts holding the headlight assembly in place. 2 at the top and 3 underneath.

Remove the plastic cross piece by prising out the clips and then the grille clips too then unbolt the bolts eithr side under the wheel arch. The bumper is still fastened using cips. Pull the bumper forward to unclip.

When you raise the hood, look for a Phillips screw that holds the parking lamp in. if it is there remove screw and pull parking lamp toward front of vehicle. If headlamp and side lamp are 1 piece, there should be 2 number 10 mm headed bolts that are vertical, that hold the assembly in. The side lamp will have a stud that holds the light to the fender. You may have to pry it loose. Reverse procedure to install.

How to remove front bumper?


I have recently replaced the front bumper on my 2005 Aveo, after hitting a deer. The good thing to know, is directly connected to the bumper, there is NO sensor to worry about tripping the airbags. There are what seems like a million Teflon screws, that must come out to remove, and replace the bumper. The turn signals, and fog lights(if equipped) must come out first. All electrical connections, like the headlights, turn signals, and fog lights, must be disconnected, or you can't access the bolts, and screws near them. It's actually very easy to remove and install the bumper after the electrical connections are dealt with. Do not worry about the plastic clips located under the hood for removal. They are cheap and easy to replace. Here are some pics that might help you.

How do you change the low beam headlight on drivers side of suzuki kazahi


You need to remove the front bumper.
It is easy but tricky.
Once the bumper is off you need to remove all the plastic head lamp.
You'll see the light bulbs once you remove a round rubber cover in the back of the plastic head lamp.

I need to remove headlights on 96 ford festiva to clean them for a road worthy?? Any help would be appreciated


I've used restore kits without removing the lamps. If you are worried about scratching the bumper or fender, use some duct tape to mask off the area and you won't put scratches on anything.

Front bumper cover is broken, no lights along bottom.


Under the bumper cover is a fiberglass bumper. It could be broken or your bumper mounts could be bent on that side. It is best to remove the screws (on the side of the wheel well) and 10mm bolts holding the bumper cover, and locate the two frontal bolts in each bracket. There are also some plastic push pin nuts in various spots too. Don't try to get the push pins under the headlights, they will come with when the bumper is removed.

How to replace headllight lamp


I know your frustration! I cannot believe the complexity of changing the headlights. Chevy has tried to make this a dealer item only just to change a headlight bulb. I will try to explain the procedure unfortunately I do not have photos. First you will need to remove the wheel well liner (two bolts and two plastic push pins). Pull the wheel well housing back (you will need to turn the wheel/tire to gain access) and using a 7mm socket remove the plastic support piece that holds the bumper in place (two bolts). Pull the corner of the bumper down until you can locate the bottom bracket of the headlight assembly that is held by a 10mm bolt. Remove it. (Oh did I mention this is a two person job!) Next move to the front of the vehicle (hood up) and remove all the 10mm bolts holding the upper part of the grill (I think there are eight of them). Now remove the obvious top two bolts on the headlight assembly! With two people - one to work the headlight assembly and one to push down the bumper and pull out on the grill assemble, slowly and carefully pull the headlight assembly straight forward. You will need to be mindfully of the small tabs on the headlight assembly that like to get caught on bumper/grill. If you are just replacing the bulb, you should be able to move the headlight assemble far enough forward to gain access to the bulbs without totally removing the headlight assembly. What a ***** job! SHAME on GM.
