You can loosen tue down on battery and there's enough wiggle room to slide your hand inThis was one of the first things I did, the passenger side I just popped out the windshield washer snorkel thing, it actually slides right out and its enough room to play around, and for the drivers side there's really no way around it other than removing the battery, now I'm just praying I don't have to do this again dude to a blown bulb.

Okay, that might make it easier if you take out the plastic piece. I didn't do that and there was so little room to get my hand in there. I know that if you touch the bulb with your skin that its lifetime will be adversly affected. I know the bulb was touching metal and plastic as I carefully, yet awkwardly put it into place. It's likely that there was a little crud, grease, dirt on the plastic that it touched so I'm sure this bulb will not last as long. So far, so good..and hey who knows maybe I'll get lucky.
"it was an interesting yoga experience for me"....Hahaha!! I know exactly what you mean bro, it was a sonuvabtich to install my HID's, my hands were all marked up and my back was tired as hell from being hunched over lol. The drivers side wasn't so bad with the battery removed, but damn, that passenger side was HELL!!!Just finished putting in
Nokya Arctic Whites (bulbs, not HIDs)
7000 55 9006 HB4
Finally!!! It has been a long and patient journey for me to find the right bulbs for me (did not want to blind anybody, nor have any chance of warning lights, flickers etc.)
These lights are perfect.Not quite as bright as stock however. appearance has a touch of blue (didn't want too blue).
Thanks to DpzlilFrank14 for his help!
Used the PDF file that Trung posted here for the DIY. Dam, you need to be patient to get that light out on the passenger side.....and putting the new one in was an interesting yoga experience for me. Give yourself 40 minutes if you work carefully like me.
not sure about the first question but for the 2nd one its no all that hard its just a pita cramming ur hand inside the small ass engine bay that we have the driver side is a bit easier if u remove the batteryHi,
If I install LED DRL as low beam lights instead of standard 9005 HB3 do I have to add a resistor? Is the electronics affected in any way? Next question will be if someone isntalled HID Xenon lights on a Honda Civic 2012 and if it's difficult? Thank you for your answer.
Removing the battery and the washer filler neck would take 15 minutes tops. Much less work than taking off the whole front bumper and removing the headlights just to change the bulbs.It's quicker to just remove the bumper and pull the headlight out. (Provided you have a ratchet extension)
