    Update time,

    The Honda special tool is 07AAC-SJAA100 ---HONDA PUSH PIN PULLER is a lifesaver. Heelandtoe automotive sell it on their website at a premium with shipping it makes it expensive.
    This tool is from the Honda marine division so it won't appear on the car and bike dealers.:Thumbup:
    Honda Pin  marine.

    I have been wanting to buy this for some time but not got around to it still using my two screwdrivers with masking tape.. it ideal for all the DIY'rs and you can stop wrecking these pin easily.

    Sorry to breathe life back into an old thread, but Just curious if its possible to buy the rear covers to the headlights? previous owner in the past has fitted HID's badly. The beam in my opinion is too high and not sure if the little adjustment switch inside the car is wired up to anything, lenses always full of condensation and there are 2 boxes wrapped in plastic carrier bags either side! One stuffed next to the battery, the other side against the washer bottle.
    You can imagine what goes through my mind every time it rains (like today with this crazy wet weather!)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Got a question guys, im sorry if it has been asked before but can't seem to find the thread need to change my headlights because they are a bit foggy and i saw these cheap 2004 Acura Tsx smoked ones on ebay with a blue side park light. I wanted to ask if they will fit our cars or there is need of modification need to be done.? Are the accord and tsx headlights interchangeable ( 2004 Honda accord 2.4 and 2004 Acura tsx).

    They will fit bud TSX are LHD cars so the beam is focused to the right , does that matter in your country you will dazel everyone on the roads or is the norm for everyone to drive with high beams.

    I know in India nearly everyone drive with highbeams and it an nightmare.
