i had the same problem with my driver side headlight. you dont need to remove the bumper as me and my buddy replaced it without removing the bumper. it was a pain i would recommend removing the bumper if you are replacing both headlights. we were able to remove the driver side tire and go from the bottom of the car and wheel well but it was a frustrating process and may be easier to just take the bumper off

oops, didnt look hard enough. i just posted about the same thing somewhere else. i think anyway, what do you mean by fogging headlight? and whats this about the oven?

both headlights on my 02 accord are dim at night, due to this fog/residue on the headlight covers themselves. sounds like you all know more than i do about this.

At least two kinds of "fogging"

1. Condensation/moisture under the lens. Caused by a bad seal or hole or crack.

2. Fallout residue on the outside of the lens. Makes the lens look cloudy. It's caused by pollution & neglect. If the lights are kept protected with your paint, it doesn't happen. Some places call the removal "scaling".

thanks princess, i know you've given me valuable info here before. hopefully its the outside of the lens at this point so i dont have to remove them and the bumper.
