#2 of 85 Replacing Interior light bulb
Feb 08, 2004 (1:27 pm)
I have a 97 Camry. Can some one tell me how to replace the interior light bulb? I can't find any screw at the interior light. Please advise, thank.

I am also having trouble trying to figure out how to replace the interior light bulb. I only see a tiny space to maybe put a small screwdriver in to pop it open, but am afraid of breaking the cover. Did you find out how to do it? Thank you for any help.

You have to put a small flat blade screw driver in there to pry it open. You won't crack it. The bulb in my wife's RX300 (identical to Camry's design) went out twice in 2 years. You will scratch it a little, but won't break it. Just be gentle and use slow but steady force.

A single layer thickness of cloth (handkerchief?) wrapped over the screwdriver blade might entirely prevent scratching the lens.

There is not a whole of space for cloth, duct tape, masking tape over the blade.............

Hi on my 99 camry I went to get in and the door seal has started to fall off it looks like its rotting away. I only have 50K on it and also its been garaged except when at work. I was wondering when you put it on do you use glue also in the groove? Also do you have to get the seal at Toyota or does anyone know an aftermarket place that sells them? Thanks

Hi..How do you clean the leather seats in the car? Also, what kind of leather does Toyota use? I believe Hondas use Scottish leather. Not sure though.

Hi, 'bought a 2005 Camry XLE with leather seats and leather trim. I need help telling leather from vinyl so I can use the correct cleaner/conditioner. Thanks all.

I have an SLE also, with 'full' leather interior.
In order to save money, what they do is they only construct PART of the interior (i.e. seats) in leather, and the rest they do in vinyl. They also do this in home furniture as well, so you have to INQUIRE and look at the tags when shopping for home stuff. The term they use is "leather match".
What they do is they construct the parts that TOUCH your body out of leather, and all other parts are vinyl.
If you look closely at the seat you will notice a very slight difference in color/texture. This is true for the rear seat as well as the front buckets. A good place to start is to look at the BACKS of the bucket seats. Those parts are vinyl.
I really would've PREFERRED to have CLOTH. I regret it now. My sister just bought a 2005 Camry SE and custom ordered it. She got the cloth seats and I think they're great. What I hate about the leather is: cold in the winter, hot in the summer. I don't give a darn about the "image" it might make, I want comfort.
On my next car I will make cloth interior a priority and custom order the car if necessary.
