2014 Impala Sun Visor
Vanity Mirror & 2 Lights
Plastic Lens Cover
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the tenth generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018) GM Chevy Impala in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb in the sun visor or upgrading them both to brighter LED bulbs.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Malibu, Cruze, Camaro, Sonic, Spark, Volt, Corvette, Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, SS Sedan, Bolt, Colorado, Silverado, Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Cascada, Encore, Envision, Enclave, Canyon, Sierra 1500, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Savana, ATS, CTS, XTS, CT6, XT5, SRX and Escalade may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A few compatible replacement miniature "fuse" type light bulbs are as follows: TS-14V1CP, ACDelco 13502343, 6614F, TS-14V1.5CP, Eiko 40842 - 6614F and JDM AStar LED.

The only tool needed to access and replace the light bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

Screwdriver In Small Notch
Gently Pry Out Lens Cover
Pry Out Bottom Old Bulb
The first two steps are to rotate down the sun visor and then flip open the plastic mirror cover.

To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or you can use a small plastic automotive panel pry bar tool.

Insert the blade of the screwdriver in to the small notch on the outer edge of the translucent plastic lens cover.

Gently pry out the lens cover and set it aside in a safe place.

Try to avoid using excessive force. The lens cover should pop out 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.

Either pull out the old bulb with your thumb and forefinger or very gently pry out the bottom metal end cap with the flathead screwdriver.

Old Light Bulb Removed
TS-14V1CP Light Bulb
Empty Bulb Socket
If you'd like to have brighter vanity mirror lights, there are plenty of LED bulb options.


Push In New Bulb
New Light Bulb Installed
Testing New Light Bulb
Push a new miniature fuse type light bulb such as the TS-14V1CP or ACDelco 13502343 straight in to the socket.

If the new bulb is working properly, it should light up immediately.

(Tip - If you are installing an LED bulb and it doesn't work at first, try flipping it around 180 degrees in the socket.)

Re-Insert Lens Cover
Gently Pop In Lens Cover
Vanity Bulbs Replaced
Line up the lens cover and re-insert the two tabs on the inner edge.

Gently snap in the outer edge of the lens cover to secure it in place.

If the new light bulbs didn't turn on, open and close the mirror cover or press the "Unlock" button on the key fob to activate the interior lights.
