Seeing as I could not find a guide on how to remove headlights using the search, perhaps someone else can :)

Those are the headlights I bought...

I tried with my brother to remove the headlights yesterday with no success.

We removed the bolts and screws on the top of the headlight to find out that it was still being held in place by another bolt screw somewhere else but we couldnt find it for the life of us!!

I searched for a guide to remove the headlights but could only find how to remove the tail lights and the user manual only told of the tail lights...

Anyone have a guide on how to remove and replace the headlights?


Also.. on my new headlights... where is the blinker? I see the yellow on the side but as far as people looking from the front, is the blinker the first smallest bulb in the front? I just take the blinker out my old headlight and wallah, it works eh?

Why did you buy such ugly POS ricer headlights? Just curious.

Out of curiousity myself, why do you deem them as being "ricer?"
Look at them dude.......

Those are headlamps you'd see on a typical rundown Civic.

Assuming you can get your bumper off, you'll need a 10" socket extension to get to the last bolt.

That is outstanding. I like how you specified "(front)"

Although I heard there is an order to removing the bumpers. You have to take the rear off first, then the front. If you don't I think you will get an engine check light. HA

That made my night.

Easy as this: Take your bumper off. Remove top bolts. There is a bolt on the side by the fender. THere is a final bolt underneath the housing. Should take no more than twenty mins to switch out.

youll also need an extension for the ratchet, otherwise its like impossible to get the bolt on the bottom out, unless you have small hands =/
