Honda Civic Map Lights
Pry Off Lens Cover
Remove Lens Cover
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 8th generation (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, & 2011) Honda Civic in replacing the overhead map light bulbs.

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

A replacement light bulb for the Honda Civic's overhead map light bulbs is part # DE3022 from Sylvania and other manufacturers.

If you would like to have brighter map lights, install some compatible DE3022 LED bulbs.

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

A butter knife, thin car key, or coin may also be used if you don't have a screwdriver.

Pry Out Map Light Bulb
The first step is to gently pry off the map light bulb's translucent plastic lens cover with a small flathead screwdriver.

It doesn't take much force to remove the cover, so don't pry too hard or you may crack the plastic.

With the cover removed, you can pop out the old light bulb with the small flathead screwdriver.

Push in a new # DE3022 light bulb and test it by pushing on the white switch located just next to the bulb's socket.

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

If it works properly, pop the lens cover back in place.

Double check to make sure the switch works by pushing upwards on the plastic lens cover.
