Visor Mirror

Replacing Visor mirror light
From: Doug Fayne
Symptom(s):  Visor mirror lights out

Anybody know how to get at the bulb in the visor?
please let me know.

Hi Rob,
Well, I broke the mirror but I figured it out.
The plastic trim rectangle that the switch slides in has 6 prongs on it.
3 across the top and 3 across the bottom.

I had a spare visor and after warming it in the sun I used a very small
screwdriver to push up from under the bottom edge.
once I got the bottom three free the top three will disengage by moving the
trim down a bit.

Two bulbs inside.

Hope that helps.
