Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra
Can't seem to get the bulb to seat properly so I can secure it with the white retaining ring. any suggestions?
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
