Preparations and Tools
Tools and Preparations
The complete removal of the stock headlights and installation of aftermarket projector headlights on your 2012 Honda Civic should take under half-an-hour but total time from set-up to clean-up will be around 45-60 minutes. Due to the fact that the bumper must be completely removed to install these lights the process may be somewhat more involved than other headlight guides we have created.
Work Area Preparations:
Rvinyl recommends that you clean and prepare both your vehicle prior to installation and your work area as well. Please ensure that the installation area dry and shielded from the elements.
In addition to the precautions listed above, we also suggest that you use a sheet or tarp as a staging area for the components you will be removing and installing as doing so will protect the the stock and replacement lights.
Recommended Installation Tools:
- A Phillips head screwdriver
- A 1/4-inch drive ratchet
- A 6-inch extension
- A 10mm socket
- A 5mm Allen socket
- A trim pad remover
Whenever you work on any car protective eye-wear such as goggles should be worn. In addition, you may want to use a pair of work gloves as you will be remove sharp, plastic pieces such as the bumper.
