A: One, but it takes more than an hour and way too many scratches if that lightbulb is the driver's side headlamp of a 2003 Honda Accord.

they are pretty good at hiding the fastener's imo....i an '85 hatchback to a local service station to change a headlamp on my lunchhour....the guy said i had to go to Honda, so they could take off the front bumper!...i asked if i could borrow a long phillips head, i did it myself in about 15 minutes (as trade use of his tools i showed him where the plastic shroud was fastened, so he wouldn't have to lose more business)

my 95 accord just pulled the lamp out of the back of the reflector...took me an hour to figure that out and get enough grip to do it...

my 2003 civic was totaled before i ever had to change a lamp....go figure.

Honda seems to take a perverse pleasure in challenging the backyard mechanic to figure out the deceptive simplicity...(or have they just gone to devilish trickery these days?)

i guess that's why the mechanics charge so much....
