Accord 03-08 Saloon

    Tools needed
    Flat head slim screw driver
    Star screw driver to remove two screws from fascia
    Wire cutters maybe required depending on type of bulb you purchase. I needed them

    Right... To beginh with, feel for two screws at the bottom of the large fascia which has the coin pocket. One is on the left side and one on the right. Once they're out you can gently pull the whole section away. Make sure to disconnect the plugs for the fog light and headlight switch. Mine is the far right in the pic

    Here we see the side of the switch. The brown circle part is the back of the bulb holder with the wires attached as you can see

    A friend had a spare bulb this is the company he bought it from in the USA. From Lings Honda parts its £4.30 for this bulb. I don't know how much Holdcroft Honda would
    sell this to us for though?

    New bulb placed in holer. Be careful when poking the bulb wires through not to bend them as they are delicate.

    Here's the new bulb attached

    Quick check before it all goes back together and hey presto. Job done

    It took me about 45 minutes to do as I have never replaced this. What I will advise is that patience is require for such a small bulb to replace.
    I hope this helps folks.
