Headlight bulb's and reactive mufflers?

ok first i got a set of bulbs for my headlights and for my parklights but i can't seem to get the park lights in , i have no clue how to get them in!!!! i read that u have to take out the retaining clips and then pop out the inner pannel in the wheel well but it doesn't seem like it is going to happen for me , does anyone know how any tips cause honda wants $20 to change those so ummm no thanks!

also i was wondering if anyone knows anything about reactive mufflers , one of my friends just but one on today and it sounds good but to me it seems like his car is slower then before could this be!?!?!?! and i am planning on changing the exhaust on my 2002 civic dx what would u guys recommend!?!

thanks!

when you say parklights i'm assuming you mean headlights.
READ the manual.
your dealer charges $20 to install headlights?

as for your friend's exhaust, he lost a little power in the low-end but will gain more in the higher-RPM range

umm i mean those little things next to the headlight the ones that take the xeon 194 bulb


reason i asked about the muffler was cause just after he got it put on we went for a race and he has a 2000 dx hb and i roasted him! way more then usuall!

oh, the parking lights:
you twist the housing to take it out.
pull out out the bulbs and push in the new ones. simple as that [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

in the owners manual it says something about taking out the cover on the wheel well though how does that come off cause i spent 1 hour looking and all i did you screw up the retaining clip! it is on page 248-249 in the owners manual!

Check the DIY section shows you step by step.Taking off the front bumper and the headlights is the easy part ,but take your time on separating the lenses.Maybe 15-30 min. per headlight.Deffinetly worth it ,aftermarket look for free.99
