This automotive repair guide is specifically for the 2012 7th generation Toyota Camry map light bulb replacement.

The map light bulb is the same for the 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 Toyota Camry (XV40 and XV50) L, LE, XLE, SE, XLE V6, SE V6, and Hybrid and the OEM part number is 2825 or you can use a 194 wedge style replacement bulb which are supplied by many manufactures such as Sylvania, GE and Wagner and can be purchased at auto parts stores such as Napa, Pep Boys, Autozone, and Advanced Auto Parts.

Replacing your interior lights with LED's is always a good idea as they last longer and give a brighter whiter light then OEM replacement bulbs. This DIY how to guide may also be helpful to owners of other Toyota, Lexus and Scion models such as the Corolla, Solara, Avalon, Celica, Corona, Cressida, Matrix, Supra, Tercel, Paseo, Venza, MR2, Yaris, Echo, IS 250, ES 350, GS 350, LS 460, IQ, TC, XB, and XD. Always remember to check your OEM manual for your vehicle before attempting any repairs on your own to make sure you have the proper replacement parts for your vehicle. If you do not have your OEM repair manual try using the instructions from a Chilton's Manual or a Haynes Manual for further replacement instructions.
