Question about 2004 Honda Civic
The way to replace the lamps in the speedo, is to remove the instrument panel from the dash...You'll find screws holding the surround at the top of the moulding....Lower the steering as much as you can, or remove the steering centre cover (If you have a vehicle fitted with air bags, its safer to stop before you begin) and remove the steering wheel....You'll need a puller....After removing the instrument panel surround....look carefully inside and locate the two screws on either side of the unit and remove them....Gently pull the unit forward and take out the electrical connectors....They are different sizes and cannot be mixed up...They should also be colour coded.....Once these have been removed, (there should be no speedo cable, as on your vehicle I believe that the unit is also electronic) you can remove the whole unit and see the small cube like lamp holders on the rear of the panel....twist them anti clock wise and remove and replace....
Refitting is the opposite of the above....Make sure that the steering is in the straight ahead when fitting back the steering wheel....
