Pry Out Near On/Off Switch

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Hyundai Tucson SUV in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb in the housing above the sun visor.

Owners of other Hyundai and Kia vehicles such as the Accent, Elantra, Sonata, Azera, Veloster, Tiburon, Genesis, Lavita, Veracruz, Santa Fe, ix35, Equus, Cadenza, Forte, Optima, Rio, Soul, Sedona, Sorento, Spectra and Sportage may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement "festoon" or "fuse" style bulb is part number DE3175 (31mm in length). You can also use an LED bulb.

You may also be able to use the slightly longer 6418 (35mm), 6423 (36mm) or 6411 (41mm) bulbs.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the light housing.

Disconnect Power Plug
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may want to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the light housing and the headliner at the edge near the "On/Off" rocker switch.

Gently pry out the light housing and remove it from the headliner.

An optional step is to press the release tab on the black plastic electrical connector and slide it off the end of the housing.

Gently pull back the metal electrical contact and remove the old bulb.

Insert a new DE3175 bulb in to the socket.

You might also be able to use the slightly larger 6418 (35mm), 6423 (36mm) or 6411 (41mm) bulbs by bending back the metal contact.

Test New Light Bulb
If you disconnected the power plug, push it back on the end of the housing until it clicks securely in to place.

You may want to test the new bulb before re-installing the housing by moving the rocker switch to the "On" position.

(Tip - If you installed an LED bulb and it isn't working, try flipping the bulb around in the socket.)
