Question about 2004 Nissan XTerra
How to remove the side marker light assembly in nissan xterra 2004? what tools do i need?
Open the hood. Observe the "tab" on the driver side inner fender, above the corner of the headlamp, outer edge. Remove the screw. Pull the lamp assembly straight forward, towards you. If it has never been out, the lamp will be tight. There are 2 locking pins inside the fender that need to be defeated, you just have to grasp the back side of the lamp (closest to the driver door) and pull it straight towards the front of the car, NOT sideways.

Open the back lift door. Inside next to the lights there are screws that need to be removed before you can get the whole parking light off. After you get the screws out, you will have to force the whole plastic light cover to get to the burn out light. Once you get the whole light out, replace the bulb and follow the process in reverse.

Just pop out the side marker from where the marker meets the fender well and push outward on the side marker. It has a metal clip retaining it to the bumper.
This entry was in January, most likely you figured it out already.

After you remove the 2 bolts there is 2 cone shaped tensioners that help hold the taillight housing on. Grab the taillight firmly on the top and bottom, and pull it straight towards you until the tensioners pop. They will not be damaged and are made to pop in and out.
Then find the bulb housing of the burnt bulb, turn the housing clockwise, and remove the bulb housing, remove the bulb by pulling on the black base of the bulb only on the short sides on the housing. (DO NOT pull on the glass, as it may break in your hand). Then slide the replacement bulb into the housing (it can go in either direction), and repeat the steps in reverse order. to put the housing and taillight back on.
Be careful to tighten the taillight bolts by hand only, they have a plastic thread sleeve that is easily stripped by a drill.
