Thank you and you're welcome. I hope to add more DIY's for us who like to do things for ourselves.

I tried my best to pull down the lights in the trunk... it's freakin hard. I even used a screwdriver to try and pry it out, but it was really tough.

In the end, I got it partially down, but then I gave up as I didn't want to break something.

Is there a magic trick to this? I started from the sides.

I found this package to change all your lights, on ebay for under 15 bucks

Another quick tip is to wrap the tip of the screwdriver with a thin cloth so when you pry the cover it is harder to scratch, compared to the metal of the screwdriver. Looks great though!

the pic of the LED bulb you posted , is that the exact length that can be used in the housing or cann we use one that slightly longer? ive been using LED bulbs from aznoptics.com in my cars since ive never had issues with them for atleat 4 years now. ive seen used other cheap bulbs and LED's would burn out. when i swap out the ones in the civic i just want to do it once and not worry about having to keep changing them.

According to the Owner's Manual, the license plate lamp in the back is an LED, so no need to mess with that one.

Thanks for the eBay link, RedCivicTouring! I ordered my LEDs today.

I've already ordered and received my LED fog light lamps. I just need to find some time to get them changed out.
