Question about 1995 Nissan Altima
I changed the bulbs on my '95 altima, but the clips that are supposed to secure the bulbs in place will not snap back into place. As a result, the headlights are seated in the socket correctly as best I can tell, but the clips are only being held in place by the rubber gasket and large plastic housing ring. Is there some sort of trick to getting those locking pins to snap correctly? I sure as hell couldn't get them to snap.
Is this what you have? Does the locking ring screw on or does it snap? Do you see a tab or anything that might have broken off? Can you compare locking rings from one side to the other? Or maybe try a locking ring from the other side for testing? My biggest problem is I can't see anything from here.

you have to remove the bulbs from inside of the hood in the engine compartment. in some cars you have to remove some "pins' and remove the entire headlight assembly.. You then remove the holder where the lightbulb is located and replace the bulb.

obviously you have problem with wiring. if driverside works check withh a test light for power and ground. connect ur light to battery and test.if yuo have problem use the wiring from driverside to repair.

This was not real easy, sorry. This is one of those jobs that smaller hands are best equipped to do. The Driver's side light is pretty easy and striaght forward because you can manuveur it. The passengerside lite allows about 1/3 the room to work.
I sprayed some silicone on the ring, as there was some road grime in there. I found it hard to get the bulb in without sctratching it too. I did get it in and threaded, and I did get a pseudo "click" or lock out of it, so it can be done with a little frustration.
To me the most amazing part was whe I turned on the lights-- they were aimed correctly! Good luck with this. You may just have the ring crossed threaded a tad bit-- and given the angle you are looking at -- you would never know
