This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010) Honda Odyssey minivan in changing a burnt out map light bulb in the overhead console or upgrading them both to brighter LED units.

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

The compatible replacement festoon style light bulb is part number DE3175. You can also use a brighter LED unit.

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

Gently Pry Out Old Bulb
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, I recommend using a plastic pry bar tool or cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the blade of the plastic pry bar tool or the flathead screwdriver in between the translucent plastic lens cover and the overhead console.

Very gently pry out the lens cover to release the retaining clips.

You may need to re-insert the tool several times and pry again to fully release the lens cover.

Set the lens cover aside in a safe place.

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

Use the plastic pry bar tool to gently pull out the old light bulb. Only apply pressure at the metal end caps. Do not apply force to the glass center part of the bulb to prevent from having it shatter or crack.
