replacing burnt bulbs

is it possible to just take out the bulb on the driver side without going through and removing all of the headlight itself?

I hope I am reading this correctly. But yes it is possible. I believe you can find instructions in your honda manual. But if you lost it, just unplug the bulb out of the socket then you turn the bulb a qtr turn and Voila!

ehh i'll be more specific, sorry. On the driver side theres the radiator reserve tank, do you guys remove this in order to replace the bulb or just remove the entire headlight and then replace it?

you can remove the reservoir by pulling it up, and moving it out of the way, simple as pie

The reserve tank is only blocking the driver's side high-beam. You should be able to reach the driver's side low-beam without removing anything. The intake resonator snorkel will be in the way but you can reach around and underneath that to get to the bulb.

yeah, the tank is blocking the high beam only.. there should be like a black cover thing you have to remove.. it has two blacks plastic things where you just pull it straight out and then you pull the black cover upwards and then you should see the low beam bulb
