This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Mazda CX-9 crossover SUV in replacing a burnt out overhead dome light bulb.

Owners of other Mazda vehicles such as the MAZDA2, MAZDA3, MAZDA6, MX-5 Miata, RX-8, MAZDASPEED3, MAZDA5, Tribute SUV, and CX-7 crossover may also find this guide to be helpful.

A replacement light bulb for the overhead dome light of a '07-15 Mazda CX-9 is part # DE3175 available from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Phillips, Wagner, PIAA and Eiko.

You can also use a compatible LED unit.

The only tool needed to replace the overhead dome light bulb is a small flathead screwdriver. Insert the blade of the screwdriver in the notch on the lens cover opposite of the On/Off switch and gently pry it out.
