    2 of the lights behind the speedo and tach are burned out. How do I get at
    them to replace?

    I removed the 2 screws that go up into the black trim piece around the
    instrument panel, but I cannot remove the trim piece. This looks like the
    way in.

    Am I on the right path? What am I missing?

    If not, please tell me how to replace the bulbs.

    And PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE do not tell me to check/replace the fuse. Not all
    of the lights are out, only 2! If I had a nickel for every numbskull that
    told me to replace the fuse, I'd buy a new Civic!

    Parts diagrams are at www.slhondaparts.com and they show all the
    connectors / clips that hold your dash in (and the bulbs).

    Disconnect the battery first. !

    Thanks but no.
    The link you sent me to lists all the parts but the diagrams do not
    correspond to the parts list.

    For example; select "Front Seat (L)" an you get what seems to be the right
    parts list, but when you click to see the diagram you get the diagram of the
    mirrors and their assembly. Click on "Instrument Panel? and you get
    something that looks like hydraulic lines. not sure what it is!
    I went through all 20+ and did not find anything that looked like an
    instrument panel, but some said not diagram was a available.

    Thanks anyway,

    there are some mistakes in some catalog pages for some honda parts, but
    in principle, motsco is correct in his advice. just try different sites
    as errors tend to be different in different sites. go to tegger.com for
    a list.

    of course, /you/ could splash out the money to find out the facts for
    real at helminc.com - then you get to complain about something you paid
    for rather than good advice that you didn't, but i'm not sure that would
    satisfy you somehow.

    Thanks for the response.
    I though I was being reasonably polite while pointing out that the well
    intended advice I got was not providing the help I need.

    From your response, it seems you thought I was unappreciative. That was not
    my intent.

    Still trying to replace the bulbs...........
