This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and the facelifted 2022) Jeep Compass SUV in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb located in the sun visor or upgrading both of the bulb to brighter LED units.

Owners of other Jeep, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, Renegade, Gladiator, Cherokee, Grand Wagoneer, Wagoneer, Charger, Challenger, Durango, RAM 1500, Promaster, 2500 and 3500 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM (original equipment manufacturer) light bulb part number in this 2019 Compass Trailhawk 4X4 model was marked as a TS-14V11.5CP8X.

A few compatible replacement "miniature fuse" style light bulbs with their part numbers are as follows: TS-14V1CP, 6614F and ACDelco 13502343.

If you'd like to have brighter vanity lights that will also last much longer before burning out like the traditional incandescent bulbs, install some TS-14V1CP LED or 6614F LED units.

The tools needed to access and replace the bulbs include a small flat head screwdriver such as from a precision screwdriver set and perhaps also a plastic pry bar tool.

The first few steps are to sit in one of the front seats, rotate down the sun visor and flip open the vanity mirror cover.

Plastic Pry Bar Tool
Carefully insert the blade of a small flat head screwdriver in between the outer edge of the lens cover and the plastic frame.

Very gently loosen the two retaining clips on the outer edge of the lens cover.

Then gently loosen the two retaining tabs on the inner edge of the lens cover (close to the mirror) with the plastic pry bar tool.

Try to avoid using any metal tools near the mirror to prevent from scratching, chipping or cracking it.

Carefully pry out the retaining clips on the inner edge with the plastic pry bar tool.

Avoid using excessive force! The lens cover should pop out relatively easily.

OEM Light Bulb Removed
Use the plastic pry bar tool to carefully pull the bottom metal end cap of the old light bulb out of the socket.

Do NOT apply pressure to the glass part of the bulb to prevent it from shattering and sending shards of glass flying into your face or eyes.

The OEM (original equipment manufacturer) light bulb in this 2019 Compass TrailHawk 4X4 model was a TS-14V1.5CP8X.

Test New Light Bulb
Push a new miniature fuse type TS-14V1CP or 6614F light bulb into the socket.

If the new bulb is working properly, it should turn on immediately.

If the new bulb does not turn on, try pressing the "Unlock" button on the smart key fob to reactivate the interior lights.

For brighter vanity mirror lights, install some compatible replacement TS-14V1CP LED or 6614F LED units.

Close Mirror Cover
Line up the lens cover with the opening in the light housing.

First, reinsert the inner edge and secure the two retaining clips.

Then gently snap in the two retaining tabs on the outer edge of the lens cover.

Make sure the lens cover is flush with the plastic frame at every edge.

Tip - If you installed an LED bulb and it doesn't work, try removing it from the socket, rotate it 180 degrees and push it back into the socket. Some LED bulbs are "polarized" and will only work properly when the "+" positive and "-" negative electrical contacts are in the correct orientation.

Don't forget to write down the bulb change in your SUV's service records.
