SOURCE: Need to replace passenger side headlight on a 2002 Honda civic lx

I have not done this yet but I have seen a DIY on hondacivicforums.com. From what i hear to remove the headlight assembly you have to remove the front bumper to get to screws that hold the headlight assembly on.

Hope it helps.

There was a recall for this problem, if youve never had it fixed you should take it in to your local dealer.

SOURCE: 2000 honda civic vp keeps blowing low beam fuses left and right.

Fuses nearly always blow because of a bad earth. The switch only needs to short for a moment and the fuse will blow.

See if you can find a replcement swtich from a local breaker's yard or ebay and go on from there.

SOURCE: how to change the headlight on passenger side of

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.

Passenger side low beam doesn't work. Notice bulb is out. Replaced bulb but still doesn't work. High beam works fine. No problem with driver side. Is there a fuse for the left side?


No you must have a wiring problem if the bulb is good. You can test the bulb out of the car. Do not touch any halogen type bulb with your bare skin.

The fuse for the left headlight keeps blowing every time i turn the headlight on .I already replaced the switch,checked for cracked wires or bare and still get the same result


Obviously there is a short to ground or a major draw.
You should be able to use a meter to check resistance in the circuit between the light and the fuse.
You said "switch" so have you checked the headlight switch and dimmer switch too ? And does the fuse blow if the headlight bulb is unplugged ?

I have a 2006 civic SI. DRL indicator is on, driver side low and high beam ok. Passenger side low beam ok but DRL and hi beam not working. Any help is appreciated.


When either the high or low beam light is out in either side, DRL (daytime running lights) indicator will come on. When one bulb goes out, that's a clue the opposite bulb will burn out soon, so its best to replace both bulbs. If it was a fuse issue, both left and right side would be out. If driver side is OK but passenger side is not, then its a bulb issue. A 2006 Honda civic takes 9006 (HB4) low beam bulbs and 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs. Cheapest is online from Walmart site-2-store. After procuring, wear latex, vinyl, or ANY gloves to keep your (corrosive) oil skin from coming in contact with headlight glass bulbs. Your skin oil will chemically react and cause shorter life span on glass bulbs. Instruction don't tell you this, so you handle with your hands, then need to replace bulbs 3 years later instead of 5 years (or more) in the future. With gloves on, pop the hood and look behind each headlight. Turn counter clockwise to unlock headlight bulb holders. Its a quarter to half turn to unlock bulb holder lock. Replace one bulb at a time so you don't confuse high beam from low beam. The wire has a tab you need to lift to pull out & disconnect wire connector. You might need a slim narrow-**** (NOT phillips) screwdriver to lift the tab; or use your house key. Snap the wire connector to the new bulb, then twist into headlight housing to secure bulb holders, then move on to the next bulb to repeat the procedure. Pict below, 9005 high beam is on the left, 9006 low beam is on the right. Handle by grasping the plastic base, not the glass bulbs. The raised potrusion on the bottom center is where the tab locks onto wire connector. Replace all 4 bulbs now, but in the future, its likely the low beam will wear out before the high beam. In the future, replace only the pair, not all 4. The factory installs inferior bulbs that go out sooner, hoping you'll take to dealership and they ******** you with higher parts-n-labor fees. As opposed to Walmart online site-2-store, it would cost you AT LEAST triple in parts & labor from dealership to replace all 4 headlight bulbs :-(

2003 altima headlight fuse keeps blowing on passenger side


The most likely cause would be a wire chaffed through and shorting out on the body. Pull the plug in off the light and start tracing it back looking for a bare spot. Tape it up with electrical tape and try to re-route it so this doesn't occur again. Hope this helps.

The socket or the wiring. Without the bulb in put a meter on the socket to make sure you are getting juice to it. if you are there then you may have just had bad luck with a bulb. If there is no power at the socket then you need to disconnect it and check the bare wires for power. No power there then you have to trace back to the fuse panel..

Passenger headlight bulb keeps dying after only few months, no issues with driver side


When the same bulb burns out often,it is usually vibration that does it.When driving at night is that headlight a steady light on the road or a shaky light?
Is that headlight assembly tightly mounted and the bulb secure in the housing?

Speedometer on 97 Civic lx stopped working last night after I drove through some rain water. The headlights would get bright and dem? What could this be?


check alternator fuse!! if its blown....

under the intake manifold at the rear of the engine there is a pack of wires. This pack rubs on the bottom of the intake and creates a short circuit which screws up the !!speedo!!, sets off the check engine light and gives a trouble code (if you know how to read the check engine flashes) that there is a problem with the O2 sensor, and sometimes the headlights would surge.

Just crawl under the car when it is up on stands and gently turn over the pack of wires under the intake to expose the bare wire or wires. Tape them up and away you go.

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.
