Changing Visor Vanity Mirror Light Bulbs (RH Passenger Post 22 of 27)

Only the passenger side of the Turbo Buick had a lighted vanity mirror.
That was an option that could be ordered when the Regal was new, it’s not standard in every Gbody Regal.
(3 options were available: no mirror, non-lighted mirror, lighted mirror)

There’s 4 bulbs in the vanity mirror housing, 2 on each side of the mirror.
It has a built-in switch, selecting LO (2 lights ON) or HI (4 lights ON).

The OEM light was a white bulb.

.

SPECS:

OEM BULB NUMBER: 194

SOCKET COLOR: black

NUMBER OF WIRES ATTACHED: 2

WIRE COLOR & PURPOSE:

1= orange power wire in from CIG/CLK fuse.
2= The bulb is grounded thru the housing, which is attached to the visor bracket, which is grounded to the body.

An automatic switch in the housing cover turns the light on when you open the mirror cover.

HOW TO CHANGE BULB:

.

Using a small flat head screwdriver, lift up on the bottom edge of the plastic clear lens (there’s a small slot).
Once that is removed, pull the old bulb out, replace with new bulb.
Replace lens cover.
