Honda Accord 2002 Cigarette Ligher socket loose

Appears that the retainer ring/clip has slipped off. The socket can almost be pulled out of the console (can see the electrical connector). How do I retighten the socket to the console? Seems like I need to remove the console to do this.

Some of the cigarette lighters have a threaded outer shell that keeps them in place. If you can follow the wires back from the socket there might be a empty "shell" hanging on the wire. Guide it back up to the socket, and while holding the socket in place tighten the shell around the socket.

    helpful as far as it goes, but I knew this much... How do you get to the back of the socket to perform this fix?

I cant get the retaining ring on the headlight bulb to turn so i can replace the head light. its a 1995 honda accord.

Spray VERY lightly some WD-40 around the bulb where the ring is holding it down. Wait about 2 minutes. Wiggle the ring by hand. If it still doesn't come loose, use a flat screwdriver on the edge ridges of the ring. Bump (hard) the screwdriver with the ball of your other hand or another tool to turn the ring. Before you put the new light-bulb in the hole, use a towel to wipe any WD-40 off of the ring or the hole. If any gets on the new bulb, it will shorten its life. Hopefully you are changing both bulbs and KEEP the one that was still working as an emergency spare. Sharpie LOW on the plastic socket, wrap it in a paper towel and keep in the trunk.

1994 honda accord can't fine fuse for my cigarette ligher to replace

In earlier model vehicles, the cigarette lighter is on the same circuit as the dash lights/ radio/ interior lights. Maybe it's not labeled as cigarette lighter, try other fuses. also, there should be a fuse panel both inside dash and under the hood. Also, sometimes there can be an in-line fuse right behind the cigarette lighter.

I need to replace the halogen low beam bulb on the driver side of a 2004 Honda Accord. There is no access panel in the wheel well. So, to get at the bulb from the top, do I need to remove the air cleaner?

You can reach in behind grill to access headlight. THere will be a plastic ring that turns loose, then bulb and socket can turn and pull out.

How do I remove the door panel on a 2000 honda accord?

If you have power windows or locks first remove the negative battery cable. If not you need to locate and remove the screws that hold the door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips).
If you have a manual window crank, you will need a small piece of wire with a hook on the end of it to remove the window crank (slide it behind the crank "base", hook the hook to the retaining clip and pull the retaining clip out).
If you have power windows, when you remove the handles unplug the wires to the window switches and door locks.
Next use a small prybar to remove the interior panel retaining clips (they're plastic clips that snap into the door). Get as close to the retaining clips as possible or directly under them to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel, and pry them out of the door.
Once the retaining clips are removed from the door, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.

Installation is reverse.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
