This automotive maintenance "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the XV40 6th generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011) Toyota Camry sedan in replacing a burnt out overhead map light bulb.

Owners of other Toyota, Lexus or Scion vehicles such as the Corolla, Matrix, Yaris, Avalon, Venza, RAV4, FJ Cruiser, Highlander, 4Runner, Sequoia, Land Cruiser, Tacoma, Sienna, Aurion, IS 250, IS 350, ES 350, GS 350, LS 460, tC, xB, xD, iQ and may also find guide to be helpful.

A replacement light bulb for the overhead map light of a 2007 to 2011 Toyota Camry is part # 2825 from various manufacturers including Sylvania, GE, Wagner, Eiko, and PIAA.

You can also use a brighter LED bulb.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver. Use it to gently pry out the translucent lens cover.

Pull Out Old Bulb
Old # 2825 Light Bulb
Push In New # 2825 Bulb
After the translucent lens cover has been removed, you can pull out the old # 2825 light bulb with your thumb and forefinger.

Try to avoid using excessive force.

The lens cover should pop out relatively easily.

If you have trouble removing the old light bulb, try putting on a latex rubber glove to get a better grip on it.

Push a new # 2825 bulb straight into the socket.

You can also choose to install a brighter LED bulb.
