Do i have to unscrew the two screws to get the bulb out? or do i just have to turn em? I just removed the front bumper to place the ballasts, and I am lacking a tool to get to the third screw that is located at the bottom to take the head light out. So i took the battery out to reach it from the back, but i wasnt sure if I am supposed to unscrew the screws to remove the bulb erm... Having bit of mental break down. LOL just making sure before I make moves. :D lmk plz
removing the bumper isn't needed to install HIDs, refer to the DIY section.

I removed the bumper for correct installation of ballast... Just placing them behind the crash bar is the best spot I heard so Ididnt want it to mess with any other electrical systems

Stock bulbs out/battery came out/windshield came out. Broke the black thing off just how chunky did... Ended up using the ziptie... and yes I removed the front bumper so I could reach behind the crash bar. Thats where I wanted the ballast to go so

View of the lights (not in the housing yet) havent removed the plastic cover yet, Just wanted to see if it would work! :D its perfect for me, just the blue i wanted to match with my LED lights :wigglesmiley:

Behind the crash bar this is where I wanted my ballast to go

View of ballast after mounting it. I wanted to zip tie it around, but didnt have any so just double sided it... hope it doesn't fall out :p. I'm scared that weather might get to it and it might end up falling off... I will get a zip tie around soon when I get a chance...

You need to have computer reset to take out the battery?! I took out mine and just plugged it in back. Didnt seem to see any problems.

And you don't reset the computer in-car really, just the radio

You should be able to get the radio code online at the Honda Owner's Link website. I see the option, just haven't tried yet as I have no need, Lol.
