Honda Civic: Headlight Bulbs - Replacing Light Bulbs - Maintenance - Honda Civic Owners ManualHonda Civic: Headlight Bulbs

When replacing, use the following bulbs.

High beam headlight: 60 W (HB3) Low beam headlight: 51 W (HB4)

NOTICE
Halogen bulbs get very hot when lit.

Oil, perspiration, or a scratch on the glass can cause the bulb to overheat and shatter.

The headlight aim is set by the factory, and does not need to be adjusted. However, if you regularly carry heavy items in the trunk or tow a trailer, have the aiming readjusted at a dealer or by a qualified technician.

The HB3 and HB4 types are halogen bulbs.

When replacing a bulb, handle it by its base, and protect the glass from contact with your skin or hard objects. If you touch the glass, clean it with denatured alcohol and a clean cloth.

The exterior lights' inside lenses (headlights, brake lamps, etc.) may fog temporarily after a vehicle wash or while driving in the rain. This does not impact the exterior light function.

However, if you see a large amount of water or ice accumulated inside the lenses, have your vehicle inspected by a dealer.
