This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation 2008-2012 Honda Fit or Honda Jazz vehicles in replacing a burnt out overhead dome light bulb.

Owners of previous generation 2001-2007 Fit or Jazz vehicles, or similar Honda Global Small Car vehicles such as the Airwave, Partner, Mobilio, Freed, Logo, City, and Aria may also find this guide to be useful.

A new replacement bulb for the overhead dome light is part number DE3022 from Sylvania and other automotive manufacturers.

The only tool needed to change the dome light bulb is a small flathead screwdriver. A key, coin, knife or any other similar item could be used instead to pry off the dome light cover.

Part # DE3022 Bulb
The first step is to use a small flathead screwdriver to carefully pry off the dome light bulb lens cover. It shouldn't require much force to pop off the lens cover and expose the old light bulb.

Grasp the old bulb with your thumb and forefinger in order to pull it out of the dome light bulb housing. If you have trouble removing the bulb, use the flathead screwdriver to pry it out and keep your hand below the housing to catch the old bulb when it pops out.

To finish the job, orientate the lens cover in the correct position and gently push it back into the housing. It should only require minimal pressure to securely snap it into place. Test the new bulb one last time and double check that the lens cover is not loose.
