All 96-00 Civic's use the same bulbs. You don't need to swap the wiring. You can just buy a new H4 bulb at Advanced Auto.

You'd have to swap bumper,fenders, and a hood for the headlights to fit.
I'm pretty sure you also have to either modify the 96-98 radiator support or install the 99-00 radiator support.

Reading > you.

At first he was talking about the headlight housing. then he asked if the bulbs could be swapped... unless the head light housing/bulbs are all one piece, which they aren't then his second question wasn't answered yet.

and yes the bulbs are the same and you can swap them out between the to head light housings and leave the wiring thats in the 99 civic the same

I misread that.:oops:

Seriously, they're bulbs though, why not just try it and use some common sense reasoning to see if they fit.

im trying to say can i unclip the wiring from the 97 headlights with the bulbs on them and clip it back into a 99 civic.
I know you can unclip the wires but with the clips fit eachother?
1999 wiring = ---[
1997 wiring = ]---
1997 bulb = O I'm trying to ask if this will work ---[ ]--- O ))
1999 headlight = ))

unless the part that clips onto the light bulb from the 99 is missing then you shouldn't have to use the wiring from the 97... just the bulbs. but if the clip is missing then yes you can use the clip from the 97.

Is your wiring bad? You could but there probably isn't any reason to, just get new bulbs.

*also, wtf is with the thread title… Si Swap, umm no

unless he cut the wires then you shouldn't need to use the light bulb clips from the 97. what he gave you were the head light housing's, they don't come with wires or bulbs. just buy new bulbs and stick them in the head light housing and swap it out with the halo lights.
