2012 Sienna Sun Visor
Vanity Mirror & 2 Lights
Pry Out Lens Cover
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and the updated 2015 & 2016 model years) Toyota Sienna minivan in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb in the sun visors.

Owners of other Toyota vehicles with similar vanity mirror light housings such as the Tacoma, Tundra, FJ Cruiser, Venza, Highlander, 4Runner, Sequoia, RAV4 and Land Cruiser, may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement miniature "fuse" type light bulb is part number TS-14V1CP or # 6614F from various manufacturers.

Other compatible bulbs include the ACDelco # 13502343 and Eiko # 40842, which are both available online at Amazon.

You may also choose to purchase a brighter LED unit.

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

Lens Cover Removed
Gently Pry Out Old Bulb
Old # TS-14V1CP Bulb
To avoid scratching the plastic surfaces, wrap the tip of the screwdriver in a thin microfiber cloth or instead use a plastic pry bar tool.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch at the top edge of the translucent lens cover.

Gently pry out the lens cover and set it aside in a safe place.

Do not apply pressure to the glass part of the old bulb.

The bulb may shatter and send broken glass flying in to your eyes and face.

If available, wear safety glasses to protect your eyes.

Either pull out the old bulb from the socket with your fingers or very carefully pry at it out at one of the metal end caps with the small flathead screwdriver.

If the old bulb was illuminated when you removed it, it may be hot enough to burn your skin. Be sure to wear gloves or use a piece of cloth to safely handle it.

Empty Bulb Socket
Push In New Bulb
New Bulb Illuminated
Push a new # TS-14V1CP bulb straight in to the socket.

If the bulb is good, it should turn on immediately.

You may also use any other compatible miniature fuse style bulb such as the ACDelco 13502343 or Eiko 40842 - 6614F.

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

Testing New Light Bulbs
Line up the plastic lens cover and gently push it back in place over the vanity light bulb housing.

Test the new light bulbs by opening and closing the vanity mirror cover several times.
