This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017) Chrysler 300, 300C or 300S sedan in changing a burnt out rear passenger courtesy reading light bulb in the housing by the overhead grab handle.

The OEM vanity mirror bulb is part number TS-14V1CP56

Other compatible miniature "fuse" type vanity light bulbs include the TS-14V1CP, 6614F, TS-14V1CP34, ACDelco 13502343 and Eiko 40842 - 6614F.

The only tool needed to access and replace the vanity light bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to either cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or you can use a plastic automotive pry bar tool.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the outer edge of the lens cover and the light housing.

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

Old Bulb Removed
Either pull out the old bulb with your fingers or very carefully pry it out at the bottom metal end cap with the screwdriver.

Do not apply pressure to the glass center part of the to prevent from having it shatter and send glass shards flying in to your face and eyes.

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

Push a new miniature fuse type bulb such as the TS-14V1CP, 6614F or the ACDelco 13502343 straight in to the socket.

Line up the translucent plastic lens cover and gently snap it back in to place.
