This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Honda Pilot SUV in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb in the sun visor.

Owner's of other Honda or Acura vehicles such as the Odyssey, Insight, Ridgeline, CR-V, Fit, Civic, CR-Z, Crosstour, Accord, MDX, RDX, RLX, TL, TSX and ILX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM bulb part number is TS-14V1CP19.

Other compatible "miniature fuse" light bulbs with their part numbers include the following: TS-14V1.5CP, TS-14V1CP, 6614F, Eiko 40842, ACDelco 13502343 & Putco LED 230003.

The only tool needed to access and replace a bulb is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the plastic lens cover.

Gently Pry Out Lens Cover
The first two steps are to rotate the sun visor down and then flip open the vanity mirror cover.

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 to the notch on the bottom edge of the lens cover and gently pry it open.

Gently Pry Out Old Bulb
Pull out the lens cover and set it aside in a safe place.

To remove the old bulb, very carefully pry out the bottom end metal cap with the screwdriver.

Do NOT apply pressure to the glass part of the old bulb to prevent from having it shatter and send shards of glass flying in to your face or eyes.
