Question Replacing some parts - New Camry owner

HI there, I am a brand new Camry owner. I just bought a 2012 Camry SE and I have some questions as I am also new to DIY with my cars...

I have some parts that need to be replaced and I was hoping you guys could tell me how/where I should go.

The "hidden" compartment that is just below and left of the steering column, the latch that keeps the door open is broken. Where can I get a new one?

I would like to replace the interior dome light with an LED because the stock light is so dim, any ideas on what size and where I can purchase a new LED bulb?

2012 isnt that old

your closest toyota parts department .. may list them or are discontinued

if no luck there on.The "hidden" compartment cover

.try source on on ebay,,,online or from a toyota wrecker

the latch thingy called "Door Check Strap " is door and side specific

one ebay seller offers current festoon bulb to an LED bulb replacement kit
