You won't be able to get the condensation out of the lamps. The light assemblies are sealed and only have a small hole where ther bulbs go in as well as a small vent. The condensation is normal and will come and go. Even if you put a new light assmebly on the car you could still get the condensation. Go to the dealer for the brake pedal pad.

How do you remove the rear door panels on a 2007 Nissan Altima.

Good day Peter.

You can find some pointers here
Inside Rear Door Panel Removal or here
How to remove door panels Nissan Forums Nissan Forum
To the Nissan Forum materials, I can add that auto parts stores and eBay are both good places to get kits of tools for popping auto panels. They make it easier to get them off without gouging up the paint or the panel with a screwdriver, and with less breakage of the pins.

Good Luck!

I have a 1998 nissan altima thats not getting no spark to the motor what can it be....? please help me

Hi, are you up for a bit of troubleshooting? If yes, use a test light or voltmeter to check for voltage to the coil. Your test light clip or negative voltmeter probe should go to engine ground. The coil positive is on the black distributor wire with a white stripe. If there is not a good 12 volts with the key on, try disconnecting the external condenser. If that restores power to the coil, replace the condenser. If not, the problem may be the ignition switch.
If you have power to the coil, the problem may be the crankshaft position sensor. The sensor is on the transmission housing right at the flywheel/flexplate and has a brown and a black wire with a red stripe. Remove the connector and check the resistance of the sensor with an ohmmeter. Sensor resistance should be 432-528 ohms @ 77°F (25°C). Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

How to change a starter for a 1993 Nissan altima

If your sure the starter is bad than buy a new one. or find a local dealer that rebuilds parts. it is held in with a couple bolts on the bell housing.

Starter is on the bottom right hand (passenger side)Put the car on a ramps, support with jack stands and block the rear wheels.
Disconnect your negative battery lead
Disconnect your starter's electrical leads- one is a plastic clip. push the top in and it should slide apart. Some models are just held on with nuts.
remove top and bottom bolts from starter housing. They are long bolts that pass through the starter housing into the engine block. Starter drops down, so don't let it hit you in the face.
Installation is just the reverse of the above steps.
Very easy to do, but tight japanese engines make for some knuckle scraping. the top bolt is the problem. You might have to disconnect some of the plastic air intake conduits to allow for easier access. A friend with skinny arms helps. Popeye would be helpless.
Cost should be around $200 for a rebuilt starter.

How do you change the brake light on a 2001 altima? The one in the rear window

There is a round plastic clip on the verticle carpet cover which must first be removed to access the back of the tail light assembly. Squeeze the back side of the clip and pull on the front of the clip until it snaps out. There are then two 5/16 nuts which must be removed. These are hidden by plastic wiring brackets which must be removed from the nut shaft. The light assembly can then be removed - note that there are two allignment posts attached to the assembly which slide thru slots on the out-side of the assembly. Carefully pull or pry backward to remove the assembly from the body of the car. Here you may access the back of the affected bulb. Simply turn to the left and remove/replace the bulb.
