Default Headlight help

Hey guys, I'm new here, first post, so forgive me if this is in the wrong section. I'm trying to change the passenger side highlight bulb in my 07 Accord and for the life of me cannot get the bastard to pop out. I've removed those 2 clips, pulled back the wall, but I cannot turn that damn bulb at all. Any advise? I've been seriously trying for an hour, and it looks like I'm a damn druggie with all the red marks on my arm/wrist from reaching in there lol.

Moved your post to correct forum. Please read posting rules. We forgive you

For low beam (usual culprit) you must remove the inner fender. That is first stop in procedure in my Honda shop manual for 2003-2007 Accord.

Bulb socket is turned 45 degrees CCW and pulled to remove.

good luck

careful what you do, I just had the same issue last week ( lol I know all about the red wrist!) anyways I was reaching in there trying to remove itů finally got the basterd out and then I realized it was the high beam!! ughhh! ... its hard to see what your doing in there so make sure you get the right bulb. To unscrew it there is sort of a technique... I guess the best way to describe it is like unscrewing one of those prescription medicine bottles... kind of push in slightly and turn a bit in the opposite direction... then in the direction to unscrew it.... hope this helps.
