SOURCE: taking off front rotors
the easiest way is to take off the knuckle loosen the four wheel bearing bolts on the backside of the knuckle and leaving the socket on each bolt use an impact hammer to drive the bearing out then rotate the rotor 1/4 turn and it should pull off. . . you might have to clean up the rust on the bearing with a grinder so the rotor will come off... do NOT take the bearing apart you do not need to. many shops will do this but it is not needed and ruins the bearing as it is a sealed unit not designed to come apart. ( to take the knuckle out take off the caliper and undo the axle nut, top and bottom ball joint and the tie rod end)

easy there is a screw on both sides were bumper and fender meet just pop back fender liner its a phillips head. Then pop hood remove clips on black trim infont of radiator. Underside where bumper goes under car remove those clips and 10mm bolts after all is removed bumper just pulls off ...... may have to give it a hard **** a few times but it will come off. Should only take 15-20min to remove if its your first time

SOURCE: Honda Accord Map Light bulb
the cover is removed straight down, slowly working it with a thin tool or butter knife. WD40 to front and rear edge (there's nothing medial or lateral). The cover has 2 Y clips on each side, one about half way, and one that clips straight off of the hinge post. There are no "tabs". It will eventually unclip straight down. Then can replace with a DE3175 LED bulb (V-LEDs.com)
