In case this has not been solved, you will need to remove the retaining clips, screws and bolts from the underside of the car. remove the left and right turn signals, in addition there are 2 bolts on each side of the bumper in the turn signal area, lift and gently pull forward to remove, re assemble as you have taken apart, best of luck, thanks

Headlight removal


Yes, the bumper has to come off to remove the headlights.
There will be a number of smaller screws around the outside of the bumper, like in the wheel well and under the car by the splash shield under the engine. All of those will need to be removed. Then you need to remove the turn signal lights in the front bumper with a long phillips screwdriver. Take a flashlight and look inside the bumper through the lower grill at the side of the turn signal housing. You'll see a small hole for the screwdriver. The screw doesn't need to come all the way out to remove the light.
Remove turn signal housing on both sides and look back at the frame crossmember behind the bumper. There are two large bolts on each side holding the bumper on. You'll need some extensions to reach them. Once those are out, you'll be able to tell if you missed any smaller screws/clips. Carefully move the bumper cover out of the way to have access to the headlight mounting points.

How can I change the headlights in a 1998 Honda Accord?


Its not that hard but you have to remove bumper to get to the two bottom bolts that holds the headlights. First remove grille and there are 2 10mm bolts that holt the tip of fenders they are the first bolts under the fender weld closes to the bumper cover. Then there are two bumper mounts/brackets that hold bumper to frame/radiator support. they are held by (4) 12mm bolts may need a swivel socket to get to them( easily accessed if you remove front signal lights in the bumper held by philips screws in the corners).After removing bracket bumper should come right off. Headlights are in plain clear view. (4) 10mm bolts and you are done. Re-install in the reverse. Good Luck . If I fixed ya leave me a FIX-YA comment. Contact me if you need more info
