Check you owner's manual. They have instructions for changing most bulbs
(but I don't know for sure about that one). But if you see any screws
holding the dome light cover, then it is probably safe to assume that you
need to remove them.

if it is anything like my 1995 Camry you'll have to pry off the light
cover. It is very, very difficult, but can be done.

You can get long life bulbs made by Sylvania. I believe that NAPA has them,
but probably others also.

I hope they changed it from the '92-'96 design! If you should
slip with the screwdriver and blow a fuse, it's conveniently
located in the...engine compartment.

Be sure to not touch the bulb with your fingers. Your skin contains
oils which will be left on the bulb. This will create hot spots in the
bulb and can shorten the life of the light bulb. This is especially
true on halligen lights. I either wear gloves or use a paper towel
to handle light bulbs.
