How do you replace passenger side head light bulbs in a '98 Honda Accord LX 4-cylinder?

Remove the battery, then you should be able to remove the "spin on" cover that holds the bulb in place

There is no need to remove the battery to change a headlight bulb. I have done this a few times already in my 98 Accord. All you need is a chubby Philips screw driver. There are three screws holding the headlight in securely. Loosten these (no need to remove completely) turn the exhisting headlight counter clockwise until you can see the plastic expansions are free from beneath the screws. Gently pull out and you can unclip the old light (a small flathead screwdriver used as a wedge works fine) and put in the new light. place the headlight back in and turn clockwise. (pay attention to the plactic expansions, make sure they are beneath the screws) Re-tighten the screws and you're done.
