This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) GM Chevy Equinox in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb or upgrading them both to brighter LED units.

Owners of other GM vehicles such as the Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Malibu, Impala, Camaro, Corvette, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, Avalanche, Silverado, Verano, Encore, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, Enclave, Canyon, Sierra, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Savana, ATS, XTS, CTS, SRX and Escalade may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement "miniature fuse" type vanity mirror light bulb is part # ACDelco 13502343.

Other miniature "fuse" bulbs include # 6614F, TS-14V1CP and Eiko 40842 - 6614F.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver.
