All you have to do is inspect the old trunk door how it is attached to the hinges.

be careful on the tension bars that are lifting the trunk. once you released them, the trunk would just fall down.

there are two of these tension bars, they are like springs to help you lift the trunk and they are very tricky to remove and install
after you have done that then it just a matter of removing 2 bolts on each side of the hinge and remove the trunk.

if you have electrical accessories attached to the trunk such as solenoids or trunk cables, remove them first.

then do the reverse on installation.

you may want somebody helping you hold to the trunk before you remove the bolts. they are heavy.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Need to replace the license plate light cover for a nissan sentra 2006


probably a simple fix, it could just be a matter of taking off a cover thats on the outside above the lisence plate, then replacing the bulb. if not, then you might have to take off the cover thats on the inside of the trunk (probably a felt like material like a pool table) and find where it is, then replace it from there.

The trunk of my 2005 Nissan sentra is locked and can't open even with key


may be manual release behind or under back seat and if not you may need to remove back seat and panal which should let you into trunk. once in there should be a release on the trunk inside to open it. most new cars have them to prevent someone from getting locked in trunk. after opened you may want to have lock system replaced or it could simply just need oiled....... hope this helps and good luck

Where can I buy a replacement trunk lock for my 2006 Nissan Sentra?


My special instructions would have included to not drill it out in the first place. It is much easier and less damaging to the vehicle to access the trunk from the rear seat area and get the trunk released so it can be fixed.

The only place you are going to find the parts you need for this is going to be either the dealer or a salvage yard.

Problem is with 2007 nissan sentra. The automatic key will not open the trunk and now the lever that opens the trunk from under the driver's seat is also broken


this is strange. is there access to the trunk from the rear seat? if not the rear seat will need to be removed to get to the trunk and then there will be a pull ring that releases the trunk latch. it is a safety requirement on all cars to let someone get out of the trunk

Trunk Not Opening


With many cars you can go through the back seat in order to unlatch the trunk lock with a screw driver, though I believe the Sentra has a rear seat reinforcement panel that has much smaller openings. I read where you wrote you have the "same problem" though we do not have the ability to see what you have seen and made that comment on. If you please, let me know more specifically the initial problem that you identified with.

Regardless, if you cannot open the lock with the key, then the lock tumblers have probably failed. It is quite possible someone may have tried to break in your trunk, ruining the tumblers in the mechanism. You need to replace the trunk latch. It is rather unusual that it would have failed on your car - it is only 9 years old.

Trunk latches have varying degrees of difficulty with regard to installation, though if not mechanically inclined, a repair shop may not charge more than $20.00 to install. This is, however, simply a guess as to how much you would be charged. You would do well to spend some time with your local yellow pages. Price the lock through Nissan, and compare repair shops to Nissan's repair facilities.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya

Brake light, 2008 Nissan Sentra


Open the trunk and locate the trim door that covers the back of the drivers side tail light assembly. Open the door and locate the bulb holder. The bulb holder can be removed from the tail light assembly housing by turning counter clockwise 1/4 turn. Holding the bulb holder in one hand, press gently on the bulb and turn then bulb counter clockwise to remove. Replace with a combo bulb and reverse proceedure to re-install.
