Insert Flathead Screwdriver

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008) Honda Pilot SUV in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb located in the sun visor.

Owners of other Honda or Acura vehicles such as the Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CR-V, CR-Z, Fit, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, ILX, TSX, TLX, TL, RLX, RDX, NSX and MDX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM light bulb was marked as part number HTU-14V0.1A.

A few other compatible replacement miniature fuse style bulbs with their part numbers include the following: TS-14V1CP, TS-14V1.5CP, 6614F, Eiko 40842, ACDelco 13502343, Putco 230003 and the iJDMTOY 3-SMD-5050 LED.

The only needed to access and replace the light bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver or a trim panel removal tool.

Pull Out Old Light Bulb
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, either cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or instead use a plastic trim panel removal tool.

Insert the blade of the screwdriver in between the top edge of the lens cover and the light housing.

Gently pry out the lens cover and set it aside in a safe place.

Try to avoid using excessive force. The lens cover should pop out relatively easily.

If the old bulb was recently turned on, be careful when you remove it since it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.
