This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the XV50 7th generation (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Toyota Camry in replacing a burnt out trunk light bulb.

Owners of other Toyota, Scion or Lexus vehicles such as the Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, RAV4, Prius, Tacoma, Tundra, Sienna, FJ Cruiser, Venza, Highlander, Avalon, 4Runner, Land Runner, Sequoia, IS 250, ES 350, GS 350, tC, xB, xD, iQ and FR-S may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement trunk light bulb is part # 194 from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA. You can also use any other miniature wedge base bulb such as the # 168, 2825, W5W or a compatible LED unit.

No tools are needed to access the bulb.

Press Tab - Remove Plug
Pry Back Tab
Flip Open Bulb Cover
Open the trunk and locate the light grey trunk light bulb housing.

Squeeze together the two tabs on the light bulb housing and pull it straight out of the trunk.

Press the release tab on the power connector and slide it straight out of the socket.

Pry back the tab on the bulb cover or "cage" and flip it open to access the old bulb.


Pull Out Old Bulb
Push In New # 194 Bulb
Snap Bulb Cover Closed
Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket and push in a new # 194 bulb.

Snap the bulb cover closed.

Push In Power Plug
Re-Install Light Housing
Test New Trunk Light Bulb
Re-insert the power plug in to the socket and push the light housing back in to the underside of the trunk.

Don't forget to record the bulb change in your vehicle's service records.
