Dirt inside my headlight

  • Open the hood of your Honda Civic, and identify the headlight assembly that has the dirt inside of it. Depending on the year of your Civic and side of the headlight, you may need to move the power steering reservoir to gain access to the light assembly.
  • 2 Squeeze the clips on both sides of the headlight assembly to release the headlight connectors. Use your fingers to loosen the headlight, and pull the small plastic tab to loosen the rubber gasket from the frame.
  • 3 Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the bulb. Twist the bulb, to remove it from the headlamp assembly.
  • 4 Locate, and remove, the screws that hold the headlight casing in place. Once the screws have been removed, gently guide the headlight casing from the location.
  • 5 Inspect the assembly under a bright light, identifying any cracks that may be in the casing. If there is a crack, use a silicone sealant to seal the crack.
  • 6 Dry the assembly, using a towel and or hairdryer.
  • 7 Replace the assembly back into your Honda Civic, and secure it by replacing the screws you removed.
  • 8 Replace the rear gasket where the bulb is inserted with a new gasket. Insert the bulb, and twist it into place.
  • 9 Reattach the bulb wiring harness.
  • 10 Turn the lights on, and re-aim the light assembly. good job your done

    How to change the headlight on passenger side of honda civic 2003

    Well, forgive the generic response.. I have done loads of Honda... but not a 2003 Civic...So, here we go..

    Open hood. Locate top headline tab. Remove screw that secures tab.
    Next, locate nut on backside of headlight assembly - remove it (it should be a round fastener that has a hex nut top.
    Headlight should pull away from chassis.
    Connecting cable has a lock tab that must be pressed. If you just pull out on the cable assembly - a large, round (2.5 to 3 inches in diameter) water proofing shroud will come out of the headlight assembly - bulb and all. You will still need to remove the cable connector from this assembly.

    Install a new headlight assembly in the reverse manner.

    Replace driver side lowbeam headlight on a Honda 2005 Civic EX

    1. 1 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 spill.
    2. Step 2 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.
    3. Step 3 Turn the bulb counterclockwise ¼-turn then pull the bulb straight out of the headlight assembly. Insert a new bulb into the headlight assembly and turn it ¼-turn clockwise to lock it in place.
    4. Step 4 Install 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.
    5. Step 5 Slide the power steering pump reservoir onto its mount.

    1999 Honda Civic "DRIVER" Side Headlight Bulb Replacement.. I've been on the net and the solutions say: "Just Unplug the Bulb and pull it out" Obviously, they haven't "SEEN" a 1999 Honda Civic Driver Side...

    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: helped me a lot!

    1989 HOnda civic Wagon-- headlight bulb replacement

    You should have a rubber boot over the bulb with wires going through it. Pull back the rubber boot to expose the bulb housing and grasp firmly and turn counter-clockwise a 1/4 turn and the bulb and housing pulls out. Replace the bulb and reverse the procedure. Make sure not to touch the new bulb with your bare hands, this would leave your skin oils on the bulb and could blow it out prematurely.
