This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010) Honda Odyssey minivan 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, HR-V, Fit, Element, Insight, Pilot, Ridgeline, Clarity, Crosstour, Elysion, ILX, TSX, TLX, TL, RLX, RDX, NSX and MDX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

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

Insert Screwdriver
Pry Out Lens Cover
Old Light Bulb Exposed
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, I'd recommend either covering the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or instead use a small plastic pry bar tool.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver into the notch at the bottom edge of the translucent plastic lens cover.

Gently pry out the bottom edge of the lens cover.

Then pull out the tab at the top edge of the lens cover.

Set the lens cover aside in a safe place.

Gently Pry Out Light Bulb
Pull Out Old Light Bulb
Old Light Bulb Removed
Very gently pry out the metal end cap at the bottom of the old light bulb.

Do not apply pressure to the glass part of the light bulb to prevent from having it shatter and send shards of glass flying into your face and eyes.

Remove the old light bulb from the socket.


Empty Bulb Socket
Push In New Light Bulb
New Light Bulb Working
Push a new miniature fuse style light bulb such as the TS-14V1CP or the 6614F straight into the socket.

If you would like to have brighter vanity mirror lights, install some compatible 6614F LED bulbs.

Line Up Lens Cover

Insert Tab - Top Edge
Line up the plastic lens cover with the light housing.

First, re-insert the plastic tab at the top edge back into its slot.

Lens Cover Replaced
Testing New Light Bulb
Close Mirror Cover
Then gently snap in the retaining clip on the bottom edge.

Make sure that the lens cover is flush with the housing at every edge.

The new light bulb should have turned on immediately as soon as you pushed it into the socket. If it didn't, open and close the mirror cover or press the "Unlock" button on the key fob to re-activate the interior lights.

If you installed an LED bulb and it doesn't work. Try removing it, rotating it 180 degrees and pushing it back into the socket again. It might be a "polarized" bulb.
