You just need to remove the clear plastic lens. Pry it off with a small flat screwdriver. There is a slot on the lens trim on the side that is most distant from the "DOOR-OFF-ON" switch. Put the screwdriver in the slot and then push the lens away from the housing (push towards the switch). It takes some pressure, but it does pry off. The lens is held in place by three clear plastic tabs (two shorter tabs on the side with the slot, and one longer tab in the middle of the lens side by the switch), so you are pushing the two sort tabs free from the housing. After that, changing the bulb is quite easy, but be sure not to touch the replacement bulb directly with your fingers--the oil from your fingers will make the bulb wear out sooner. The bulb, when lit, gets VERY hot.

Look closely at the cover. You will see a small slot. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver, and pry it off. Very easy..

if it is covered by a white plastic then inspect it carefully and look for slots where you can put tiny screwdrivers to pry the plastics off, then you can replace your bulb. just be careful not to break the plastic.

SOURCE: The interior dome light is burned out, removing cover problem.

You will have to pry off the lens CAREFULLY using a small screwdriver. There are two little plastic protrusions on each long side of the lens which fit into the casement. You can ease the casement away from the lens enough to get it to pop out. Re-inserting it is the same, but probably easier.
Gently, give it a try.
Hope this helps you.

You will have to pry off the lens CAREFULLY using a small screwdriver. There are two (or more) little plastic protrusions on each long side of the lens which fit into the casement. Look for very small slots along the side of the lens to insert the blade of the screwdriver. You can ease the casement away from the lens enough to get it to pop out. Re-inserting it is the same, but probably easier.
Gently, give it a try.
Hope this helps you.

My clock, interior lights, and remote keeps going out on my 2006 Toyota Solara. I just had a fuse replaced less than a month ago to fix this problem, and now its happening again. What could the problem...


the fuse being blown is a sign of something wrong-just replacing the fuse doesn't fix the reason it blew-you have a short probably in the interior lights-the wiring goes up inside your headliner and may have gotten a wire pinched or rubbed through causing the short-cheers Denny

Interior Dome light will not go out


The problem was in the dome light itself. It is being replaced. The problem could have been caused by my son tucking and stapling a detached headliner around the dome light resulting in a ground problem that also shorted out other electrical systems. The exact cause is unknown.

Interior dome light stays on while driving


Your dome light switch in in front of the driver's seat where the headlights are. It is possible that switch is bad as it should be both a turn knob switch, and by pulling on it, it becomes a head light switch. You may have to replace it.
