This do-it-yourself (DIY) automotive guide will show you how-to change the dome light on a 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 Toyota Camry (XV40 and XV50) L, LE, XLE, SE, XLE V6, SE V6, and Hybrid.

The non-sunroof dome light replacement bulb part number is DE3175 and the sunroof model uses a 194 wedge style bulb and both are available from many manufacturers like Sylvania and GE. You can also use LED replacement light bulbs and LED light kits like the PUTCO 231125 Festune bulb for aftermarket aplications.

Dome Light Lens Cover
The Toyota Camry dome light is located in the center of the headliner inside the cabin of the car and you will first need to use a small flat head screwdriver to pry the lens cover from the cabin dome light housing. There are two notches located at the front side of the lens cover that you can use the screwdriver to pry open the dome light cover.

Test Dome Light Bulb
Before replacing the lens cover make sure to test the new dome light bulb to make sure it is working properly. If the dome light is not working check the filament (the metal wire in the center of the bulb) of the new bulb to make sure it is not broken. If everything is working align the lens cover with the dome light housing and press it back into place.
