Default Whats the easiest way to change the passenger side parking light on a 99 si?

This is my girls car and I need to change her parking light on the passenger side. But it looks like you have to take the dang bumper off. I started to take the headlight out by removing the two 10 mm bolts on the top of the headlight but it wouldn't move, and I didn't want to force it. I'm not an idiot but there has to be an easier way. Oh and already did a search and looked in the faq but didn't come up with what I needed.

read the owners manual. either take off the bumper and remove the headlight. there are 4 10mm bolts holding it in. or turn the wheel all the way in, and pull back the fender lining and reach in. if you have big or fat arms, I would reccommend removing the bumper. I have long thin arms, so it's no problem for me to reach through the fender well.

good luck

take the bumper cover off and take out the headlight. That is the easiest way.

Yeah, the bumper is only the 4 rivets on the top of the grille, two screws on the bottom, and two in the fender. It only takes about a minute or so once you know how to do it.

Yeah, remove the bumper. Takes 5 minutes and will make it easier. There are 4 10mm bolts that hold the headlight on. 2 top, 2 bottom. Then just twist out the bulbs.

Good luck

Just so you know, my Civic is BY FAR the easiest to work on car I've ever messed with. Taking off the bumper takes 5 seconds.

umm to change the blinker/marker light bulb, you just peel back the fender liner. no need to remove the headlight or bumper.....
