Replacing headlight bulb in 2005 Accord

Do I really need to remove the battery in order to access the driver's side headlight ?!

What does the owners manual say? Have you tried to replace bulb without removing battery?

No, because I can't get to it. The manual is not very clear, talks about reaching from outside but I don't see any pins that are mentioned in the manual.

I've done this on Hondas before...

... and generally the bulb and its electrical connections fit into the headlight housing from the engine side. Changing the bulb is a matter of twisting the socket to remove it.

Unless I've got it totally wrong: did you mean this?

Step-by-step pictures for replacing Honda Accord 05 low-beam headlight

I did much research online but found no detailed instructions to replace my 2005 Accord driver side head light/lamp. It looks hard to get to the light. However, it's not too bad at all if you know how. It took me about 30 minutes this morning. Follow the following link Picasa Web Albums - HD - Step-by-step ... to instructional pictures that I documented while I replacing mine.

Follow the same procedure to replace the passenger side, except you do not have to remove the battery.

This procedure works for Honda Accord 03 to 06 and maybe later.

Good luck!
