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 map 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 bulb for the overhead map lights is part # DE3175 available from manufacturers such as Sylvania, Eiko, GE, Phillips and others.

You can also use a brighter compatible LED bulb.

The only tool needed to replace the overhead map light bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver.

Insert the blade of the screwdriver into the notch on the clear lens cover near the light switch buttons and gently pry it out.
