Bulb Replacement The headlamp is a semi-sealed beam type which uses a replacable halogen bulb. The bulb can be replaced from the engine compartment side without removing the headlamp body. I Grasp only the plastic base when handling the bulb. Never touch the glass envelope. 1. Disconnect the battery cable. 2. Disconnect the harness connector from the back side of the bulb. 3. Pull off the rubber cap. 4. Press end of the retaining pin together to release bulb. 5. Remove the headlamp bulb. Do not shake or rotate the bulb when removing it. 6. Install the new bulb in reverse order of removal.

Hi, You can purchase a Haynes Manual or go on-line to nissantechinfo.com and purchase the factory service manual in .pdf format and download it for around $20 bucks for an hour of access. If yours is an HID bulb the cost is mostly the bulb. And, if you are not familiar with HID then I would let them do it. But, if you feel comfortable just jack up the car on the driver's/passanger side and remove the tire to get access to the inner fender well. Remove the clips and screws and you now have access to the back of the headlight assembly. Remove the access cover on the assembly and you will find the back of the bulb. If it just a turn and the access cover comes off and then the same for the bulb.
cHECK TO SEE IF THE BULB IS NOT REPLACED FROM THE REAR OF THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY. MOST NEWER CARS ARE. MAKE SURE WHEN YOU PUT THE BULB IN THAT YOU DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS. THE OIL FROM YOU FINGERPRINT WILL LEAVE A HOT SPOT AND CAUSE THE NEW BULB TO BURN OUT QUICKLY.
The headlight is actually a bulb inserted into a light module. You can remove the plastic light module by releasing the tension spring on the rear of the headliht housing inside your hood. Once the tension spring is released pull the plastic light module from the fender socket by gently pulling on the edges of the headlight. The module should pull out with some minor difficulty. Remove the bad bulb from the rear of the plastic bubble, and replace it with a new halogen bulb. Replace the module into the fender socket and reclip the tension spring(s). Not all that difficult of a job once you know how its accomplished.
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.
