Before you start, it is advised that you disconnect the battery otherwise you may blow a fuse. There is a fuse for the bulb which can be removed instead of disconnecting the battery, but I don't know which fuse it is.

Remove the cover by gently prying it open using a screwdriver. You'll see two small openings next to the switch, this is where you should insert the screwdriver. Be carefull not to stick in the screwdriver too far or force it open. If it won't open easily then you are doing something wrong.

To replace the bulb, simply remove it with your fingers, it should come out easily. Gently insert the new bulb. Be carefull, the bulb is very fragile and may break if forced. Reconnect the battery and test the bulb using the light switch. Snap back in the cover and you are done.

It's the Dome fuse (it is also the fuse used to the interior dome light and trunk light). The fuse box is located under the hood on the driver's side.

looked at the fuse panel in the car and under the hood and it doesn't even say where the fuse for the dome light is. How stupid is this? there's an install guide at the bottom, good luck!

It's behind the coin compartment to left and of the steering wheel.

If it's one that you push the light cover to turn on, this is how you change it: On the side of the cover that presses up, slide in a thin screwdriver--and I do mean thin because the cover hinges can break. There is a small clip that will release and the cover will pop out.

it should be the same as the interior light fuse. all of these are together i think.

I have the same problem with my 1999 Toyota Camry. The service person at the dealer said sometimes the connections in the unit go bad and it would need to be replaced. Cost = about $90.
