Re: Driver's side Headlight Bulb Replacement
Do you mean the entire headlight assembly or just the bulb?
If it's the entire headlamp look at the new one to see where the
fastening points are, the grill may have to be removed and also the
parking lamp lens, if it's just the bulb it's easy Open your hood look at the back of the headlight assembly and twist the bulb
holder ring to release it. Good Luck To You

On my 2007 Honda CR-V The DRL code appeared on the dash board. Additionally I had only one high beam (on the passenger side); both low beams were fine, but I did not have a Daytime Running Light on the drivers side. The DRL code was really misleading because the real problem was that the high beam element in the headlight bulb was burned out. Note that the daytime running light is not a seperate bulb -- it is the high beam element which is powered at a low voltage. Once I replaced the head light bulb everything worked fine and the DRL code on the dash board was gone. So if the DRL message appears what you really need to do is replace the headlight bulb (there are YouTube videos which show how to do this - but search for headlight replacement, not for DRL fix). Be careful not to touch the new bulb with you hands since premature burnout can occur from the grease off your skin. I got my bulb from Wal-Mart for $8.88 (it's a 9003/HB2 for the 2007 CR-V) -- that's a pretty cheap fix.
Locate and remove the power
steering reservoir from behind the driver's side headlight assembly.
Pull straight upward, sliding it off its mount and set aside for access
to the headlight bulb. Make sure you keep it upright so it does not
Locate and remove the electrical connector from the back of the bulb. Depress the locking tab to release it and pull the connector down, removing it from the bulb.

the electrical connector by plugging it into the bottom of the bulb.
Push the connector in until the locking tab engages the bulb, securing
it to the bulb.
Slide the power steering pump reservoir onto its mount.
Unscrew the Torx retaining screws and remove the headlight bezel.
Remove the headlight bulb retaining screws. These are the screws which hold the retaining ring for the bulb to the front of the car. Do not touch the two headlight aiming screws, at the top and the side of the retaining ring (these screws will have different heads), or the headlight aim will have to be re-adjusted.
Pull the bulb and ring forward, then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb.
Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector. Install the bulb into the retaining ring and then install the ring and the bulb. Install the headlight beze
Okay, 1999 Honda Civic, Headlight (Driver Side). If you haven't fixed this or just wanna know, this is what you have to do.
The power steering pump is in the way of you getting to the bulb. You will need to remove the back tube of the power steering reservoir, the one closest to the cabin of the car. Plug this tube with a rag, quickly as fluid starts flowing immediately. Pull the res up and out of the holder it sits in. Now on to the light. Grab a hold of the black plastic clip (with wires) on the sides, and pull the electronic clip out of the light. Gently pull the rubber tabs for the weather guards, and you should now see your old bulb. There is a metal clip that holds the bulb in place, gently release this metal clip, being careful to keep it in place. Makes the job easier when you put it together. Your old bulb can now be easily pulled out. I take the bulb at this point and plug it into the clip and test the lights. This assures me that the bulb is busted and a bigger job isn't ahead of me. Once confirmed, I place the new bulb in the headlight bezel, careful to not touch glass. Clip the metal hold down clip back in place. Put the Rubber grommet back in place, clip on the electrical wire clip. Test the headlight. Put power steering tubes back in place, place the res back on the holder, and done. The book and this site: http://www.andrewdothay.net/blog/2007/11/24/1998HondaCivicHeadlightReplacement.aspx helped me a lot!
remove a few of the clips on the inner fender liner, depending on which bulb u are replaceing(left or right?) turn the wheels in either direction and u will be able to slide ur hand or arm between the liner and fender to gain access to the bulbs and connectors..do not remove the battery .
There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in. (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.) Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.
