    Re: How do you change the interior front dome bulbs in a 2010 SRX?

    I have a 2010 SRX AWD. The front map lights work, however, the courtesy lights on the same don't work. All other courtesy lights work. I had a problem with water leaking into cabin. My Cadillsc dealer fixed ( they said drain holes from moon roof were plugged) After, I noticed that visor vanity mirror lights were inop. Took back to dealer for fix with wiring or wiring harness. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    On the overhead console in the middle there is a rocker switch to control the interior lights. Press in at top to turn lights off. Press at bottom to turn lights for constant on. The middle position is for lights to come on with door opening. You can also leave a door or the liftgate open and all interior lights will go off in 10 minutes. My '13 Premium has LEDs under the dash along with the OEM courtesy lights and under the rear seats there are LEDs. I also have LED lighted front door sills. I am still in the process of changing all the OEM to LEDs. TheCaptain's pics and instructions are priceless.

    Re: How do you change the interior front dome bulbs in a 2010 SRX?

    You can take a small flat blade screwdriver (eyeglass size) and push on the back of the bulbs to remove them. There is just enough room to pry them out this way. And it makes it much easier to turn off the lights on the roof console switch so the lights are not too hot. Use a flashlight to see what you are working on, if needed. You will be seeing spots if you stare at the stock and led replacement bulbs for too long! Make sure to test them before putting it all back, especially the front foot-well lights, that takes some contortionist qualities.

    In my opinion, a new Cadillac should have led interior bulbs as standard equipment!

    Another tip for the lights behind the rear door grab handles if you can't remove the lens covers: Flip off all your lights at the main overhead switch. Remove the handles by popping off the bolt covers and each bolt. Pull out the handles, they are stuck in there with tabs, just pull straight out while jiggling a little. Now, you can pull down the light assembly. From the backside, take your small flat blade and push the lens cover tabs down and out. They will come out about 3/4 of the way. Then, work the cover off by pulling and rotating it down from the front side. The lights can now be removed. I used needle-nose pliers to grip them and pull straight out. Now, push the button on the light and make sure your new led works before reassembling everything!

    A quick and easy way to safely remove the 194 wedge tail bulbs is to place a slightly oversized piece of heat shrink over them, heat it up and gently pull the bulb out. It's a lot less risky than using needle nose pliers (especially when if the bulb breaks and you're left with a mess to extract from the socket.)

    That is a good tip. I was really careful not to squeeze too hard, but with my luck I'm surprised I didn't break one.

    Finally got all the interior, vanity, license plate, and puddle courtesy lamp bulbs changed over. It's pretty cool they are all the same 194 bulb, compared to the MKT that is 3 different bulbs for the dome, license plate, and cargo areas, and possibly a fourth for the puddle lamps in the exterior mirrors. Still need to buy those!

    Just replaced my map and dome lights with blue LEDs this afternoon. Thanks for all the tips on this forum thread. The new lights look FANTASTIC!
