Assuming you want to remove the headlight assembly, not just change the bulb: Use Philips screwdriver to remove screws for the turn signal housings in the bumper. These are located in the air intake vent in the center of the bumper cover. The screws go in at an angle, one on each side. From the center, gently pry the housings out. Twist the bulb sockets to disconnect. Use Philips screwdriver to remove screws from tabs in the top of the corner parking lights, gently pry forward to remove from fenders. Don't skip this step, or the bumper cover coming back can break these fragile parts very easily. Use a long extension and a 12mm socket through the turn signal openings, remove the bolts that hold the brackets to the front radiator support. Four bolts total, there are one on each side of both brackets. Note, do not remove either bolt from on top of the brackets. Remove the small bolts from each upper corner of the bumper cover, up in the wheel well opening. The bumper should now lift up and then pull forward, with the cover still attached. Remove 10mm bolts from the headlight housing. They are on top, and on each lower corner. These are NOT accessible with the bumper and cover still installed, on any 1994-1997 Accord.

This just isn't something that you want to do. Remove engine shroud, grill, bumper on the side that you're working on, inner fender fasteners - then you can get to the 4 bolts that hold the headlight assembly in. Did it yesterday - won't do it again. 5 hours :-(

With lots of newer cars, only the bulb is replaced as opposed to the whole headlight assembly. Check and see if you can twist off the bulb from the backside of the headlight. Or, just go to any auto parts store and give them your car's make and year. When they find the product, simply ask them how it is replaced.
