They simply pop off. Gently pry them off, the spring holding it on the ball is internal. EDIT: (Adding some descriptive pics for Larry) Place a large flat tip screwdriver where the red arrow is at. In the image below, the green flat piece is the screwdriver. Place one side of it at the base of the post. Place the other at on the rod. Twist it as shown ...

I contacted the official Honda dealer in New Zealand. They confirmed that I need to replace the entire assembly, rather than just the arm alone. They are not the "pop out" variety. The cost is NZD305 EACH, rather expensive. I contacted a local mechanic who said the same thing: need to replace whole assembly. He got a second hand one for NZD92, plus NZD28 ...

But it's most likely the motor needs ...

If you are saying that they used Dexron III instead of Dexron II, that is completely okay.

In fact, the original GM ATFs have been superseded by Dexron III.

I would bet the problem lies in the relay, which should be located under the hood. It should look something like this: Each of the high beams and low beams will have their own relay. The switch which is only used to energize the relay. The relay provides the power for the head lights. The underhood fuse box should look like this: On the underside of ...
