Re: mositure in headlights
Sorry for the bad news but you need to remove the headlight then gently remove the clips that hold on the front glass and resilicone the glass on the light housing and re attatch the clips, this will also give you the chance to clean the inside which is probably starting to look a little duller due to oxidisation. an easier but more expensive answer especially if it is a completely sealed unit is to just replace the headlight, youll want to attend to the problem soon as it can short out and cause alot more major problems, hope this was helpfull.

Normally the head lamp relays are placed within the dash and as close as possible to the headdlights as the high ampere required means that the wires must also be of short length to reduce loss or it might need large core wires. So check the main relay box here within the engine room and use a multimeter to see if the cluster switch triggeres the relay.
You shouldn't have to remove the bumper. Feel behind the light on the engine side and you should find a collar assembly with wires running into it. If you twist that collar off and then pull back toward the rear of the vehicle, pull the collar back not the wires, the light bulb should come out of the light assembly. From there it is just a matter of unplugging the old bulb and putting the new one back in them putting everything back. The whole job should take about 15 minutes.
There are detailed instructions in the the manual. If you do not
have a manual, here is how to do it (directions assume removing
drivers-side headlight assembly and viewing the area from the front of
the van): Remove the thumb screw on the left side of the headlight
assembly as well as the thumb screw on the top of the head light
assembly. The third thumb screw simply anchors the turn-signal assembly
to the head light assembly. Initially, just loosen that screw. The
whole assembly is now loose but still held in by two plastic posts on
the bottom of the headlight assembly and two plastic posts on the end
of the turn-signal assembly closest to the fender/wheel area. Pull the
whole assembly kind of up, out, and down. It takes a bit of juggling
but it will come out. Once the whole assembly is out you can separate
the turn-signal assembly from the head light assembly and put the
headlight assembly back in place. To separate the assemblies remove the
third thumb screw (if its too tight to remove by hand you will need a
Torx screw driver of size T-30; if you don't have a Torx a small
flathead screw can work); also, you will notice the hidden clip that is
the final anchor holding the turn-signal assembly to the head light
assembly. Use a flat-head screw driver to release it. Now the units
should be separated. To remove the turn signal bulb socket from the
turn-signal assembly, simply turn it counter-clockwise while pressing
down on the safety clip and pull it out of the back of the turn-signal
assembly. The owners manual lists the type of bulb. It should be an
amber 3157. The bulb pulls straight out of the socket.
Replace the bulb. Place the socket back into the turn-signal assembly
(turn it clockwise until the safety clip snaps). Replace the Headlight
assembly (two thumb screws and the two plastic alignment posts anchor
it), but do not tighten the screws until the turn-signal assembly is in
place. Replace the turn-signal assembly by first aligning the plastic
posts and then anchoring it to the head light assembly with the third
thumb screw. Make sure everything is aligned properly and tight all the
thumb screws. An experienced person can probably make this change,
start to finish, in 15 minutes. First timers will probably take 30
minutes as it takes some time to understand how the designers anchored
open the hood then you need to remove the grill assembly it just snaps off. once grill assembly is off then the headlight assemblies are locked in with four metal clips, two per light.they just lift upwards to unlock the lights. now pull out assemblies and take off rubber discs to reviel the light bulbs
Raise the headlights, either with the switch or manually by turning the knob on the headlight motor counter-clockwise. Unplug the lights NOW to avoid an accidental closing on your fingers, Remove the 3 philips screws holding the black plastic surrounding the headlights, and slide it forward, there is a small clip on the top that helps hold it to a corresponding clip at the top of the headlight, Look inside the cavity and you can see the 5 nuts/bolts ( 6 on later years ) that need to be removed, If you are on the driver's side you can now remove the whole assembly, on the passenger's side you must first unplug the headlight door control module.
first i wanna say good luck too you..I don't know who dizayn that head light assmebly but it was the stupidist think i ever seen..
My friend 1992 accord had a broken head light and he asked me the favor and i thinked just the headlight why not...
first i had to remove front grill and side marker find one bolt under side marker but it dosent change anything then i figure it out whole think!!!!!
You have to remove whole bumper cover and bracet to remove bottom screws 3 on inside 2 on out side of head light...
i have to spend hours to replace 40 bucks head light..
Unless you can fit your hand in between the body an the back side of the headlight assembly, you probably are going to have t remove the whole assembly, alot of vehicles now are that way, the whole assembly has to be removed to access the headlight bulb. Hope this helps.
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.
The headlamp assembly on each side comes out as a unit. Raise the hood. Remove black plastic cover that hides the assembly. This is done by prying up on the plastic tabs on the cover that hold them in place. (They look like inserts) Once you pull up on the center portion of tab, the whole fastener comes out. Once the cover is out of the way, you will see these square black (about an inch Sq.) horizonal plates of which are connected to ball like fixtures (ball and socket) you pull up on the plates which release the ball to come out of the socket. The headlight assembly will swing out at the top, then raise straight up once it clears top. The headlight bulbs will now be accessible. Turn light bulb socket (with the wiring) counterclockwise 1/4 turn to remove. replace bulb. wipe clean with paper towel or cloth before reinstalling, as acid from skin or other contaminates will destroy bulbs. reinstall in reverse.
