The dome light cover in a 1996 Toyota Camry protects the dome light bulb from incurring accidental physical damage. The cover also prevents the vehicle's occupants from accidentally burning themselves by inadvertently touching the dome light bulb. In order to replace the dome light bulb, you must remove the cover. The dome light cover contains molded plastic clips that snap into place on the inside of the dome light housing. Gentle prying with a flat-head screwdriver will separate the cover from the housing.

Tools Used[edit]

Small flat-head screwdriver

Tips & Warnings[edit]
