Default How to replace clock light in a 2002 Accord

Well it happened to two of my accords. I didnt want to bother going to the dealer to find out. I spend most of my time working on Integras so I'm unsure how to replace the bulb and remove the whole center console vent area with the clock. I'm assuming I have to unhook some wire and pop off the buttons just like the integra.

If anyone has a how-to or some tips that would be great because seeing as this happened fairly soon after I got both cars, I would have to assume that it happened to a lot of you guys too. Thanks

It's a relatively simple process, and the 6th gen accords are notorious for this bulb blowing out. I don't have pictures but I will give you a general process for replacing this. You WILL NOT have to remove the climate control panel, just the clock assembly itself.

1. Use a small flat-blade screw-driver to pry the clock/hazard button assembly out of the dash panel. Wrap the screw-driver in a papertowel, tape, or a cloth to avoid scratching the plastic. This usually works best if you pry from one side then the other.

2. There is a vertical connector for the hazard switch, and a horizontal connector for the clock. Disconnect both of these and remove the clock assembly.

3. I believe there is a plastic cover on the back of this assembly. Remove it using a phillips head screw-driver. There you will see the back of the plastic bulb holder.

4. Twist the bulb holder out of the socket and replace the bulb and holder with a new one purchased from a Honda dealership.

5. Installation is the reverse of removal.

I believe this bulb runs $1.47 from the dealer, which is way too much IMO. You could buy an LED bulb conversion from http://www.ledautomotive.com/ if this becomes a continuous problem.

We have a similar problem on a 2002 Accord - took the light out tested on a 9 volt battery - the light works fine!! Is there a connection inside the clock cluster that can be loose?
