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 miniature fuse type light bulb or installing a brighter LED bulb in the sun visor vanity mirrors.

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.

The OEM light bulbs in the sun visors next to the vanity mirrors are part # F151684G3 available from your dealership. They are 12 volt 2 watt miniature fuse cap type light bulbs.

Other compatible miniature "fuse" type bulbs include the ACDelco 13502343, TS-14V1CP, 6614F, Eiko 40842 - 6614F, Bulbrite 756320 - 6614F and the Putco 230003 LED.

The only tool needed to replace the vanity mirror light bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the lens cover.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver into the notch on the middle left of the translucent vanity mirror light bulb cover and gently pry it out.

Carefully pop out the old F151684G3 light bulb with the screwdriver or pull it out with some tweezers. Try to avoid dropping the old light bulb into the body of the sun visor.
