Default O/T How to replace headlight assembly on 1992 Honda Accord?

Being of sound mechanical mind, I thought it would be a simple thing to replace the passenger side headlight assembly on a 1992 Honda Accord.

Wrong. I must be missing something simple. Does anyone know how to do this procedure?

We are leaving to go work on the boat (inside heated storage), but I would like to finish this later tonight.

Thanks in advance.

We're home. Boat is fine. Many people working on Winter projects.

No bodyshop people? Still working on the car.

Front bumper skin has to come off. I can't remember but I think all the fasteners are reusable (unlike some plastic one-timers used on some cars).

Also can't remember if the crushable foam comes off with the skin or if they are fastened to the "car" but you'll see clearly enough when the skin comes off.

Not as big a deal as it sounds like.

If you must know, restructured out of my job with Kodak after 23 years. Lost the company car, and $10/month income. Son has mint 85 300 ZX, wife's got a nice Chrysler Town & Country. I needed something I could write a check for, and would be dependable. At least its got a 5 speed!

Decided not to do the headlight thing. Looked like too much work hanging onto cold tools.

Guess I'll have to drive my son's car on Monday.

You don't just need a bulb replacement do you? If so, you can remove either the washer reservoir, coolant recovery tank, or move the actual radiator to one side to get to the bulb socket.

Been a while...
