i need to change the bulb on the left parking light. it is the light next to the front headlights on my 2000 lx. i saw one screw on top and removed it, but i still can't budge the assembly out of the body to access the wire harness.
what is the trick?

Yeah, those are a real pain. You have to get to it from the wheelwell.
(Tip - turn your tires IN, that will help give you a little more clearance to work in there, of course you will have to turn your tires the other wawy when you get to the other side of the car)
Get a medium flathead screwdriver and pop out the clips holding the shield from the front to about half way back of the well. You should then be able to move the shield out of the way enough to stick your hand in there and grab the bulb. I have to swap out mine this weekend - %*&!@%# stealth lights burning out so I have to put the OEM ones back in.. will take pics if you need.
You must remove the screw that you are describing and then insert a flat screwdriver between the parking light and the head light and very gently pry the parking light away from the headlight. There is a hidden clip in there and you must disengage it and then the light will come out. Good luck and be gentle as to not break anything.
