2006 Honda Pilot Sun Visor
Vanity Mirror & Two Lights
Insert Flathead Screwdriver
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008) Honda Pilot SUV in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb located in the sun visor.

Owners of other Honda or Acura vehicles such as the Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CR-V, CR-Z, Fit, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, ILX, TSX, TLX, TL, RLX, RDX, NSX and MDX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM light bulb was marked as part number HTU-14V0.1A.

A few other compatible replacement miniature fuse style bulbs with their part numbers include the following: TS-14V1CP, TS-14V1.5CP, 6614F, Eiko 40842, ACDelco 13502343, Putco 230003 and the iJDMTOY 3-SMD-5050 LED.

The only needed to access and replace the light bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver or a trim panel removal tool.

Lens Cover Removed
Old Light Bulb Exposed
Pull Out Old Light Bulb
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, either cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or instead use a plastic trim panel removal tool.

Insert the blade of the screwdriver in between the top edge of the lens cover and the light housing.

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.

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

Empty Bulb Socket
Install New Light Bulb
Re-Insert Bottom Edge


Push a new compatible replacement miniature fuse style bulb in to the socket such as the TS-14V1CP, 6614F, ACDelco 13502343, Putco 230003 or the iJDMTOY 3-SMD-5050 LED.

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

Re-insert the bottom edge of the lens cover in to the housing.

Gently Pop In Lens Cover
Test New Vanity Light Bulb
Testing New Light Bulbs
Gently snap in the top edge of the lens cover.

If the new light bulb didn't turn on as soon as you installed it, open and close the mirror cover or press the "Unlock" button on the key fob to re-activate the interior lights.

To finish the job, close the mirror cover.
