How do you Change, Replace, or Install Broken 2002-2004 Honda CR-V Headlight Replacement

Fits years: 2002, 2003, 2004

All Honda CR-V Headlights for sale Tools required:
  • 8mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • Flathead screwdriver

Step 1: Lift the vehicle's hood.

Step 2: Using the flathead screwdriver, remove the 6 clips that hold the plastic radiator cover in place.

These clips are easy to remove, as you simply lift on the center piece, remove it, and then pull the clip from the cover.

Step 3: Remove the 8mm bolts (one on each side) that are located in the wheel wells.

Step 4: Remove the four 10mm bolts on the underside of the bumper cover (2 on each side).

Step 5: Disengage the retaining clips on the underside of the bumper cover.

Step 6: You can now remove the front bumper cover from the vehicle.

Step 7: Remove the front grille from the vehicle.

The grille is held on by clips that attach to the bumper cover.

Step 8: Remove the 10mm retaining bolts that hold the headlight assembly in place.

Two are on the underside of the assembly, and two are on top.

Step 9: Gently pull on the bracket that is below the headlight assembly, disconnect the wiring harnesses, and remove the headlight assembly from the vehicle.

NOTE: If you order your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it likely includes new bulbs (as most of our models do). This saves you time, as you can right to installing the new assembly. However, if it doesn't, you can easily twist and remove the bulbs/sockets from the old assembly and attach them to the new one.

Step 10: Connect the wiring harnesses to the back of the new headlight assembly.

Step 11: Secure the headlight into place by re-engaging the retaining bracket and tightening the 10mm retaining bolts.

Step 12: Reattach the bumper cover and grille by reversing the removal process.
