Default How difficult is it to change out a headlight bulb on a 2005 Honda CRV?

It's the low-beam bulb, if that makes a difference

This is easy peasy. The bulb has two filaments one hi beam one low beam.































At the back of the lamp unit is a rubbery cover with electrical cables going into it.































Remove this cover you will find the three pin plug attached to the pins on the bulb. Remove this it can be tight but wiggle it and it will come off.































Then there is a spring clip that goes around the bulb base and holds the bulb into the lamp unit. This has to be squeezed to release it from the castellated hooked retainer. This spring clip is usually held in place on the lamp unit and will swivel out of the way. Remove the bulb. Replace and refit in reverse order.































Tip, look at the new bulb you will see on the metal base that there is a lug sticking out. This fits into a cut away in the lamp unit so the bulb is the right way up.















Make sure the cover is fully on as it stops water getting into the lamp unit. It will have a positive feel when it slips into place.
