Remeove rear combination tail light cover 2006 Nissan XTERRA

Good Morning. I have a 2006 Nissan XTERRA. I want to replace one of the bulbs in the rear combination tail light. I have unscrewed the 2 screws but can't seem to remove the cover. How much force is needed? Is their a trick to this? The manual's picture is not very descriptive. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank You

I just changed out a tailight on my 2000 Nissan Xterra, so I assume it may be similar. You have to pop the plastic strip which runs across the back. There are pop rivits in it.

thode screws hold the lens or the light assembly? Allow for the whole tail light to come out and the bulb plug will be accessible. I never had the privilage. But how the lens fits will tell you. If the lens goes overthe edges, the whole unit comes out, lens is sealed. Good luck

How to remove tail lite cover on 2002 xteara


Open the back gate and you will see a couple of philips head screws. Unscrew them and snap the tail light out gently. There a couple of plastic clips that hold the tail light in place. Be careful not to break them (pull the light straight out not up, down, left, or right) Once the tail light cover is removed, separate it from the backing and reflective insert.To change the bulbs just twist counter clock wise and push in. Snap the new bulbs in and repeat the whole process in reverse.

Replace stop light lens on nissan xterra 2005


remove the inner trim panels , or access the light from the inside of the vehicle . thru storage doors in the back of the vehicle, look for wingnuts made of plastic and unscrew them. some cases require you to take spare tires out of those storage units on the inside of the vehicle.
its also possible that if you raise the rear door, and look on the inside , righ by the light, sometimes there are retaining screws + THAT NEED TO BE REMOVED

How do i change the brake light on jeep liberty 2006?


1) You will need to open the rear swing door.

2) On the inside jam there are two torx headed screws (T-15's if I remember correctly).

3) Unscrew the two torx screws.

4) The light is now held by two mounting tabs (small spherical headed plastic sets that go through a rubber grommet).

5) You will need to pry the light casing off (easy pressure with a good size flat head screw driver will do the trick).

6) The light bulbs are twist mount settings inside the light casing.

7) Twist out the mount setting, change the bulbs, and reset the light mountings.

8) To put the light casing push the light casing back on and put in the screws. Everything else will work in reverse when it comes to assembling the whole unit.

Taillight out on 2001 xterra


Pop your rear tailgate. Look inside for an access panel(s). In SUV's they're usually right behind the light assemblies on the inside. They'll either have screws or pop-outs. You may even have to remove part of the interior panel.

Once the panel is removed, access the light panel from behind and remove bulbs.
