Fits Years: 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005
All Honda Civic Headlights for sale

Tools required:

  • Flathead screwdriver

  • 8mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • Phillips screwdriver

Step 1: Remove the four retaining clips that are located on the top of the grille.

Step 2: From under the front end, remove the screws and clips that hold the front bumper cover in place.

NOTE: These retaining clips may be tough to remove given their exposure to the elements. You may want to use pliers when removing them.

Step 3: Remove the 8mm mounting bolt located in the upper portion of the wheel well (on each side of the vehicle).

Step 4: You can now pull off the bumper cover.

Step 5: Locate and remove the three 10mm retaining bolts that hold the headlight assembly in place.

One is located on top of the assembly, one is located beneath it (near the wheel well), and the final one is located near the radiator (underneath the headlight assembly).

Step 6: You can now pull the headlight assembly from the vehicle.

Step 7: Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the back of the assembly.

NOTE: If you ordered your headlight assembly from Go-Parts, it likely has the bulbs included (as most of our models do)! This allows you to move on to installation.

Step 8: Connect the wiring harness to the back of the new headlight assembly.

Step 9: Secure the headlight assembly by tightening the three 10mm retaining bolts.

Step 10: Reattach the front bumper cover by tightening the retaining bolts and re-engaging the clips.
