Difficult to change the headlight bulbs?

I was planning on doing a complete TSX retrofit on my headlights but I was recently rear ended and I had to put money into that. My funds for the retrofit have dropped. I'm still gonna get them done but just not as soon as I hoped for. I am now gonna get me some 9005 Philips Bluevisions to hold me down until the retros. Anyone got any good pics of them installed?

How are the install on these? Do I need to remove anything? Also, do I need to re-aim the headlights after the install?

its not hard at all to change light bulbs in your headlights, its pretty much plug n play, i believe your user manual actually teaches you how to change it, just make sure you dont touch the glass on the bulbs while changing it

Ohhh alright cool. Cause my friend recently changed some bulbs on his RSX and he said that it was a ***** to install. I think he said that it was a cramped area and was hard to manuever around. I just thought it would be a hard time like on the RSX.

Well thanks!

If your talking about the 9005 conversion, it's not hard. Basically you have to remove the two guide rails inside the socket and cut part of the tab on the bulb. Otherwise, it's plug and play. See this website:

yeah i've changed bulbs for the RSX a few times - i had to remove the bumper and everything. but for the accord, you dont need to remove the bumper or anything, just lift the hood, remove the intake cover and twist and pull and replace.

Are you talking about converting the 9006 low beam to a 9005?

I'm just replacing a 9006 bulb with anotehr 9006 bulb until I have more funds for my retrofit.


Anyone who has changed bulbs in their 6th gens, is there any need to re-aim after changing them? I just wanna plug and play
