Gently Pry Out Lens Cover

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) GMC Acadia in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb in the sun visor.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Cascada, Encore, Enclave, Envision, GMC Canyon, Sierra 1500, Terrain, Yukon, Denali, Savana, Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Malibu, Impala, Volt, Camaro, Corvette, SS, Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, Silverado and Express may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM bulbs were marked with the part number TS-14V1.5CP42 or possibly TS-14V1.5CP4Z.

A few compatible replacement miniature "fuse" type light bulbs are as follows: TS-14V1CP, ACDelco 13502343, 6614F, TS-14V1.5CP and Eiko 40842 - 6614F.

The only tool needed to access and replace the bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the lens covers.

Gently Pry Out Old Bulb

Old "Fuse" Bulb Removed
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the blade of the screwdriver in between the translucent plastic lens cover and the light housing.

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

Be careful when you remove the old bulb. If it was recently illuminated it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Either pull out the old bulb with your fingers or gently pry it out at one of the metal end caps with the small flathead screwdriver.

Do NOT pry at the glass middle part of the bulb to prevent from having the bulb shatter and send shards of glass flying in to your face or eyes.

Test New Vanity Light Bulbs
Line up the lens cover over the bulb housing and gently pop it back in to place.

If the new light bulb didn't turn on immediately when you pushed it in to the socket, test it by opening and closing the vanity mirror cover or press the "Unlock" button on the key fob.
