MDX: Hi George, I want to replace the under-dash light bulbs

This answer was rated:

Hi George, I want to replace the under-dash light bulbs of my 2008 MDX, and I got the bult. However, I do not know how to reach them--it is in the feet area and there are not much space in either driver or passenger side. Any hint?

Thank you!

Hi Sir or Madam, welcome. I'm acramstr. And I will be assisting you today. You can just gently pry the light holder out of the panel to get to the light bulbs . Here is an illustration from the manual showing how it fits. If there is anything else I can help you with let me know.

Thank you Acramstr!


So all I need to to is to remove the light cover? I tried but failed--in which direction should I squeeze the cover?


If you look closely at the edge of the lens you will see small notches that you can put a small flat screwdriver into and twist gently to pop the lens off.

Hi Acramstr,


Thank you. I will try one more time tomorrow. Quick question--there are four lights under the four doors, and it was very hard for me to remove the bulbs after openning the lense... any tip to easily remove those bulbs?



I use latex mechanic's gloves for more traction on the bulb. They make special pliers for removing the bulbs as well. but I just use gloves . If you wiggle them back and forth while you pull it helps as well.
