My wife just noticed that the light above the passenger side sun visor no longer works. I swapped bulbs with the driver side and it still does not work. Perhaps the switch went out, even though I can still hear the "click" when the mirror cover is opened.

Any ideas??? Would I have to change out the entire visor?

Thanks for the help.

The switch can go out, but I've seen just as many where the wiring on the visor breaks as it curves around the mount.

Pull the visor out and look.

Mine does the same thing. Bulb works. If you turn it all the way over towards the window, it will come on, but not when you're trying to look into the mirror. How much trouble is it to get into?? I'd like to get that fixed. The way I figure, when you start to let little things like bulbs go, the rest of the car is sure to follow.

Its not any trouble at all.

You just pop the round cap out that covers the screw, remove the screw, and wiggle the visor and its mounting thingy out of the hole. Pull the wiring out to where you find the connector, and then disconnect it. Look at your wires.
