2014 Durango Sun Visor
Flip Open Mirror Cover
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & also 2016 in Canada) Dodge Durango SUV in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb in the sun visor.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Avenger, Charger, Journey, Dart, Challenger, Grand Caravan, and Ram C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM bulb was marked with the part # TS-14V1CP42.

Other replacement miniature "fuse" type bulbs with their part numbers include the following: TS-14V1CP, 6614F, ACDelco 13502343, Eiko 40842 - 6614F and TS-14V1CP34.

The only tool needed to replace the bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool used to pry out the translucent plastic lens cover.

Gently Pry Out Lens Cover

If you'd like to prevent from scratching the surfaces, I'd recommend covering the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the 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.

Carefully Pull Out Old Bulb

If the old bulb was recently illuminated, be careful since it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Either pull out the old bulb with your fingers or gently pry out one of the metal end caps with the screwdriver.

Avoid applying pressure to the glass part of the old bulb to prevent from having it shatter and send glass shards flying in to your face and eyes.


Empty Bulb Socket
Push In New TS-14V1CP
Push a new miniature "fuse" type light bulb such as the TS-14V1CP or 6614F 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 removing it and flipping it around in the socket. Some LED bulbs are polarized and will only work when the + positive and - negative electrical contacts are in the correct orientation.

Gently Pop In Lens Cover

Line up the lens cover and gently snap it back in to place.

If the new bulbs aren't lit up, try opening and closing the mirror cover or pressing the unlock button on the key fob to turn them back on.

Flip the mirror cover closed to complete the job.
