Question about 2004 Infiniti QX56
The low-beam headlight bulb has gone out on the passenger side of my 2004 Infinity QX56. I've purchased a replacement bulb, but thought I'd look for some guidance before tearing into it. The cheapest bulb I could find ran almost $100, but that's way less than the dealer's-almost-$450 price tag for parts and labor. Thanks for your help!

I would change the mass air flow meter firstly.If your knck sensor was the problem then you would have engine running rough.If its not causing any problems when driving then its safe to drive with the light on.

Look directly behind the headlight box if there is a rubber sleave covering the plug take it off. Unplug the wires from the bulb, there may be a saftey clip you will have to pry up to get it off.after you get the plug off the bulb holder should twist counterclockwise then it will pull right off.When you change the bulb just remember to wipe your body oil off the bulb before attaching it back into the headlight box. Then plug it back in and your in business. The high beam has three wires and the low beam has two wires. The bulb will have to be the right one.
God Bless You Greg

It is really not that difficult for an 01 qx4, and if you order the bulb online you'll save enough money that if it takes you two or three tries (and bulbs) you'll still save over what the dealer or a mechanic would charge you:
Don't touch anything on the new bulb besides the plastic base (don't touch the glass!)
1. Make sure you disconnect the battery before anything else (you don't want to get shocked by these high voltage babies). If you're replacing the passenger side bulb, take the battery out for more room to work, especially to see what's going on in there (you can undo the air filter case on the drivers side for the same benefit, again--disconnect the battery first). 2. Find and unscrew the round, black, plastic lid behind the headlight, it's up and to the left. 3. You'll see a shiny metal connector with electrical warnings printed on it and Michael Jackson glove looking wiring attached to it. Turn that gently to the left to open up access to the actual bulb (you'll now see the bottom/back of the bulb--a black circle with a small metal tip in the middle). 4. Unhook the two metal braces that hold the bulb in place (push in gently to let wire out--kind of like unhooking a bungee cord or unsetting a mouse trap). 5. Pay attention how the two divots on the bulb case line up with the little nubs at the top of the encasing (you have to put the new one in lining up the same way.) 6. You can now take out the bulb. You might consider practicing the replacement sequence with your old bulb that you just took out before sticking the new one in there--just to get the hang of it so you aren't banging the new one around. 7. Once you've got the bulb back in there just put everything else back in place in reverse order. 8. Wash those dirty hands and try turning on your lights. 9. Go celebrate your automotive victory by driving somewhere at night!
