Gently Pry Off Lens Cover

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fourth generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and maybe also the updated 2017 model year) Nissan Pathfinder SUV in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb located in the sun visor.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Maxima, Juke, Rogue, Altima, Xterra, Sentra, Murano, Cube, Armada, Leaf, Quest, Frontier, Teana, 370Z, GT-R, Titan, G25, G37, M35, QX56, QX60 and M37 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM vanity mirror light bulb was marked as "12V0.15A".

A few compatible replacement "miniature fuse" type bulbs with their part numbers include the following: ACDelco 13502343, Eiko 40842 - 6614F, 6614F, TS-14V1CP, Bulbrite 756320 - 6614F and the Putco 230003 LED.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

Gently Remove Old Bulb
The first two steps are flip down the sun visor and then open the mirror cover.

Use a plastic pry bar tool to gently remove the translucent plastic lens cover.

Try to avoid using excessive force, The lens cover should pop off relatively easily.

Be careful when you remove the old light bulb. If it was recently turned on, it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Pull out the old light bulb with your fingers or use the tip of your plastic pry bar tool to gently remove it from the socket.
