Removing the bumper is actually not to bad and made access to the lights a lot easier , also sometimes , like with mine , the bar the lights are screwed into is rusted beyond belief . I had to remove it all as one.

Replaced mine last week and I thought it was easy not to remove the bumper.

It very well may be , I just followed the link to the DIY bumper replace, which I had to do in the end anyway because the rails right beneath my lights were rusted fast and both inner bolts snapped trying to get them off . Which if that happens to anyone here , no worries , tapping and adding a larger screw is no big deal .

I read a few pages,not the whole thing though. I need to do this. I have the gaskets already. As ghetto as this sounds(and I'm not really one for rigging shit like this) I'm also thinking about laying a piece of clear packing tape over the gap between the tail light and the frame rail and then spraying a light coating of clear flex seal over it to keep water from running behind the tail lights again. I just got the idea from reading some posts throughout this thread, I have to actually look at the car again and see if its even feasible with still letting the water have somewhere to go.

I am about to do mine as well.
Water in my trunk & in my right side lense filled up, after every rain pour.

Some goodies from Honda just arrived to do my rear end.

Good to know I'm not the only one. Found a pool this afternoon when replacing my dampeners. Will do the taillight seals when I remove my bumper for some small rust repairs in the next month or so. Thanks for the writeup.

Did that last week. Couldn't reach the screws without removing the bumper. Also - a good idea is to check the metal bracket on which the taillight rests (and to which it is attached with those 2 screws). Mine were rusted through and I will have to buy them and remove the rear bumper again to replace it.

Just get up there and keep the bumper on. The screw is into plastic and comes out easy. The water in my trunk was frozen solid, so I ice skated in the trunk for a while.

Seems every RSX owner has had to do this at one point in time... lol
I'll be doing mine when the snow melts, and it dries up a bit.
Bad Honda design. Also,
1st car i have ever owned that i needed to remove bumpers to change or remove head lights, or tail lights.

I got those gaskets a few months back and just installed them the other day. Mine still had the original gaskets which were stuck on the taillight. The Foam ripped when I removed it. They don't have adhesive, you just remove the old gaskets and replace them with these. They're much thicker and the holes lined up perfectly. I'd say they're a great buy.

I went with OEM. Working great so far. I also had the original gaskets which were falling apart

After doing mine, for extra protection, i added a piece of clear gorilla tape over the gap between the body and tail light. I tested it with a bucket of water, now the water runs straight over the gap without falling between the body and light housing.
