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

SOURCE: have had two catalytic converters go out in last 8 months

Catalytic converters should last the life of the vehicle. usually they are damaged be a poorly running engine. most common causes are lean misfire causing unburnt fuel and air to get into the convert and ignite there. coolant or oil burning. engine running too hot (lean) overheating converters.

was it the same converter that went twice? did they change them at the same time? where the pre-converters? is the engine light on?

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.

SOURCE: change brake light on 2006 Xterra

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.

I have a 2002 Nissan Xterra SE with a 3.3 V6 ENGINE. My Xterra has 2 catalytic converters, 1 on each side. However, it has a second piece that also looks like a catalytic converter on each side, if the the...


When replacing your converters you can eleminate the second converter, shops in different states have different rules that may prevent them from losing the 2nd converter but you as an end user can but an aftermarket converter that will fit your car and install it yourself. This will require a sawzall or a good hacksaw to remove the old units so as to leave enough pipe coming down from the exhaust manifolds for the new converter to clamp on. Once the new converters are installed any muffler shop can hook up the rest of your system.

2006 Nissan Xterra shows service engine soon. Checked provided code p0430. What does this means? Help


The code means the O2 sensors are telling the computer the catalytic converter on bank two is not working correctly.
The problem could be one of the sensors or the cat.
You would need someone with a scanner watch the readings from the sensors and probably check the exhaust temp before and after the cat.

How do you know which catalytic converter is bad on a 2003 nissan xterra


The check engine light would come on and the computer would have trouble codes for the O2 sensors affecting one of the cats, also the exhaust could be restricted for one cat.

I'm trying to locate the bank 1 oxygen sensor for a 2005 Nissan xterra


If you have the V6 engine, then bank 1 is on the passenger side. Sensor 1 is between the engine and the catalytic converter, sensor 2 is after the cat.

Location 02 sensor Bank1 sensor2 on 2001


Bank1 refers to the driver's side of the engine, so follow the manifold from the engine back towards the catalytic converter, sensor1 will be before the cat and sensor2 will be after the catalytic converter.

Exhaust issue


Most likely the heat shield has corroded off and is just sitting on top of the muffler or Catalytic converter. Regardless you can remove the shield and still run the the Xterra without any problems, the OEM muffler came with a heat shield as to the after market mufflers don't have one. The Catalytic converter also has a shield and you can remove it also as the Xterra has a heat shield on the floor board it self. Most exhaust shop if honest will tell you to just remove the rattling shield if there is no exhaust leaks or no Check engine light on that monitor's the Catalytic converter's performance.
A muffler shop if shady may advise you to replace the Catalytic converter and that can go for up to and beyond $400.00, so as long as there is no leaks or check engine light on. Go right ahead and remove the rattling shield.
Thank you for using Fixya

My car is not passing the emissions test....I was told I need a new catalytic converter....does that sound correct?


It could be the Catalytic converter. What is most important is what were the readings for HC and CO?
Is the cat leaking?

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.
