This automotive how-to guide was specifically written to assist owners of the ninth generation (2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008) Toyota Corolla in replacing a burnt out dome light bulb.

Owners of other Toyota vehicles such as the Camry, Prius, Matrix, Venza, Yaris, and Avalon with similar dome light bulb replacement procedures may also find this guide to be useful.

Replacement overhead dome light bulbs for the '03-'08 Toyota Corolla from Sylvania and other manufacturers are part # DE3175.

You can also use a brighter compatible DE3175 LED bulb.

The only tool necessary to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver.

To remove the dome light's translucent cover, gently pry it off with the small flathead screwdriver.

Push On Bulb Retaining Clip
Light Bulb # DE3175
Bulb Re-Installed
Then push on the bulb's retaining clip until the bulb falls out.

Push in a new DE3175 light bulb and make sure that it is seated well in between the two contact points.

You can also use a brighter LED bulb.

Then snap the dome light's translucent cover back in place.
