It's got a full walkthrough. Better than the one I was just gonna post.

The car's manual should explain how to do it in more detail.

1. You start out under the fender well. 2. Remove enough pins so that you can pull back the plastic liner. Remove the pins by using a flat-head screwdriver to pry them up. 3. Pull the plastic liner back and reach up to the headlight cluster. 4. Remove the rubber seal. 5. Pull off the plastic plug for the light you want to change by squeezing the tabs on the sides. 6. Remove the old bulb. 7. Place the new bulb (don't touch it with bare fingers. The smudge mark can cause it to blow prematurely). 8. Place the plug back into the cluster. Replace rubber seal. 9. Replace plastic liner onto fender. 10. Replace pins.

The manual should have a better description, with diagrams and more detail. I sold my Civic 2 years ago and can't recall the specifics.

Hello. You didn't mention the year because there may be slight changes that can determine the procedures. I have a 98 Civic EXG which I recently replaced the bulbs. If you scroll down a bit someone was asking about "changing the headlight" and I posted some info that might be useful to you. Good luck, J.

I have a 98 Honda Civic EXG in which I wanted to upgrade the factory headlight bulbs with Silverstar HID's fron Canadia Tire. I found that accessing the bulbs from inside the engine compartment was quite restricted so I removed the entire bumper covering and then unbolted the headlights which enabled me to work with ease. First open up the hood,,, locate the black plastic plugs around the latch area and pry them up with a flat screw driver or suitable tool. Look under the front of the vehicle,,, usually there will be a few more there,, remove them and finally, check both sides under the front fender. There are two screws, one on either side,, remove them and the entire front should slip off quite easily without any effort.... you'll be amazed how your car looks. I believe the headlights are attached with either 2 or 3 10mm bolts,, once you remove them the light should pop off. Unplug the connector wires (I found mine was a bit tight so maybe a little force needed but don't pull on the wires) I think this was the most difficult part. Anyway, after it's unplugged, there is a retaining wire clip holding the bulb which you can press one end towards the bulb and twist out. There may be a small Phillips screw holding it but just loosen enough to remove the wire retainer and the bulb should be free. I think if you reach this point you should be able to re assemble everything and if you just wanted to change the entire headlight unit then you should already be putting it together. It's easy,,, just sounds complicated.
