The Honda CRV is a popular small-sized sport utility vehicle. In the center of the interior roof, there is a dome light that can be turned on, off or set to automatic. While the dome light bulb has a long life, it will eventually need to be replaced. The process is simple and can be done without any outside help. Grab a flat-head screwdriver and order the correct bulb replacement. Within a few minutes, you should be able to get the dome light working again.

Step 1

Locate the dome light and set it to the “Off” position. Allow 10 minutes for the bulb to cool before attempting to replace it.

Step 2

Take the flat-head screwdriver and insert it into the space around the dome light cover.

Step 3

Pry off the cover by gently wiggling the screwdriver. There are four plastic prongs (two on each side) that hold the cover.

Step 4

Remove the cover once you have managed to pop out one side. The bulb will be visible.

Step 5

Pull the old bulb out of place and replace it with the new bulb.

Insert the cover back into place and turn the light on to verify it was installed correctly.
