I just got my LED interior light package for my new Passport Touring this week. Purchased on eBay for $19.99 (13 bulbs) and quite pleased with the brighter lighting. Only took about 20 minutes to replace all of the interior lights including door lights and console.

However, the glove box is another story. Very easy to remove the existing light with a needle nose plier wrapped with black electrical tape to prevent shorting out the fuse. I still have not figured out how to put the new LED bulb in place. The glove box light opening is too small to use my fingers, dang near impossible to see the bulb receptacle, etc. Guess I will just have to suffer through with no glove box light? :cry:

If anyone out there has a simple way to install the glove box light could you please reply?

Would you please post the link for the LEDs on eBay? What type of tool did you use to remove the lenses?

For 2019 Honda Passport WHITE Interior LED Light Accessories Package Kit 13 Bulb

Just used a small flat blade screwdriver to pop off the lenses. You can put a wrap of masking tape on it if you are worried about scratching. For the overhead lenses, just pry gently along the small end of the rectangular lens, pretty much the same for the doors. The center console black mounting pops out and you twist the light out of the mounting. In retrospect, I would just forget the glove box unless you have come up with an ingenious method of replacing the bulb.

It's a pain to install a LED bulb for the glove box. I don't have tiny fingers to reach up and hold/push in the bulb sideways all at the same time. The way I did is (1) remove the passenger’s dashboard side lid and (2) remove the panel above the glove box (follow Steps 2, 4 and 5 in this manual
https://www.collegehillshonda.com/instructions/passport/2019/cdplayer.pdf ). You probably need plastic pry tools to take the panel off (just go easy not to break anything).
Once the panel is removed (first picture), you have access to the lamp socket from both above and below and you can hold the bulb from both ways and push it in (second picture - the LED bulb installed!). I hope this helps.

I tried some 5000k LED lights and hated the blue tint. The headlights are bad enough, lights should be true white or slightly warm in my opinion. They all advertise as white and are not.

I'd be curious to see how these cheaper LED kits last. I may try again but the Phillips and Sylvania that I tried were both too blue and I havent seen other colors than 5000k. Anyone have a warmer LED kit to suggest?

jams95, thanks for the information. It seems like a heck of a lot of work for one light bulb though. Think I will just to learn to live without one in the glove box.:eek:
