Honda Accord Tourer - Honda MARIS system - anybody used it? - focussed

I need to get some guidance on changing headlamp units from dip left to dip right as required to pass the French MOT next march. I have the units as original parts from Coxes Honda in the UK. By guidance I mean mostly the removal and replacement of the front bumper/grille, as there is rather a lot of it and a lot of fasteners, plus parking sensors, headlamp washers, fog light wiring etc. The electrics are all plug- in so not a problem but access looks tight.

I'm quite prepared to do it flying blind - but it would be easier with the right info.

Honda Motor Europe allow access to their service website on a pay-to-view basis.www.techinfo.honda-eu.com/web/car/welcome

Has anybody had any experience of this website, ie ease of use, finding the info you need etc?

Or any other source of this info for a 2015 model year Accord.

Perhaps the dealer that supplied the lights could e-mail you the required instructions from their use of the system. On most modern cars ,the bumpers are just plastic covers and are very often very easy to remove,once a few clips and screws are undone. I would also suggest you buy some new trim clips for the plastic wheel arch liners ,you are bound to break a few. They are not cheap from Honda.

Thanks- That's an idea about using the supplying dealer, assuming they also use that system- Yes I know about the plastic wheel arch clips from the last 07 Honda Civic, easy to break those (spray them with WD40 first is a good scheme) the Accord just has the wheel arch liners secured with the plastic rivet/snap fasteners- I had the front off and back on three times on the Civic changing the headlamps and replacing smashed foglights.

The Accord front assembly is a bit more than a cover- it's held on by about 20 -25 screws and plastic trim rivets and carries the grille, fogs, headlamp washers, parking sensors etc, hence me being a bit cautious and looking for a bit of info before I do the job.

Buy a complete set or replacement fasteners on ebay BEFORE you start dirt cheap. Then disassemble with impunity...

Hmmm - You think I could survive in the French rural jungle without workshop stock?

Good kit this one - the tools are good too, tough nylon not nasty plastic.
