1) The clock slides out by carefully prying with a fine screw driver. Take care not to scratch the dashboard fascia. It has a mini light bulb in the back. take it to the dealer / parts shop so they can see the proper color. Accord dashboards came with 3 different color plastic covers on the bulbs. Also, when you take out the clock, you will be able to see the 3rd screw that is holding the a/c controls fascia.

    Don't be stupid like me and take the clock completely apart, disassembling the electrical board because now I can't figure out how to assemble it again. If I had just read a little more carefully, I would have seen that the instructions say that the light is right there and very accessible. And what happened to the video that was posted yesterday that shows you clearly how to do it?

    How to change light in clock on 2002 honda accord


    The clock slides out by carefully prying with a fine screw driver. Take care not to scratch the dashboard fascia. It has a mini light bulb in the back, which can be taken out by rotating it with a small scredriver. it looks like a small plastic disc with ridges on it. Take it to the dealer / parts shop so they can see the proper color. Accord dashboards came with 3 different color plastic covers on the bulbs, in order to match the rest of the dashboard and radio. No need to disconnect the 2 electrical plugs that attach to the clock.

    How do I replace dashboard heater light? The glowing lights that indicate direction of air flow.


    Heater light bulb, and all other bulbs for the air conditioning buttons, are on the same mini panel, and attached to the back of the radio front fascia. To dismount this fascia, you need 1) To pry out (no screws) the clock 2) Unscrew the one screw that holds the top of the fascia (screw is hidden behind clock) 3) Unscrew the two screws at the bottom of the fascia 4) Disconnect all connectors from the back of the fascia 5) Look for the burnt minibulb.
    You could replace the bulb without disconnecting, but the cables are short, and the possibilities of marring your dashboard are high.

    Just replaced bulb on my 2002 Accord EX. Simple to do.
    1. Lift up the trim piece around clock; just slide a putty knife under and lift.
    2. Take out assembly and look on underside for small gray bulb base ( about 3/16 dia.). It helps if you have the new one to compare.
    3. Use small blade screwdriver in slot and rotate counterclockwise to remove. You may have to shake it to get out.
    4. Examine the new bulb to find the slots that DO NOT have wires. Put bulb into socket and rotate clockwise with screwdriver in proper slot.
    That's it; you now are there.
