SOURCE: replace headlight 05 Nissan
Are you wanting to know how to replace the bulb or the headlight assembly? If it is that assembly, you must remove the bumper cover to access the hardware retaining the light assembly.
Most of the attaching hardware for the front cover are nothing more than plastic rivets or pins which are two piece in construction. If you remove the center section, then you can pull the outer section out of the hole. The fender liners and under the car where the splash shield are, have these rivets. The grille is retained by the same type of fasteners and once removed, will reveal more fasteners for the bumper cover. Disconnect the fog lights. There are screws on the very corners of some of the bumper covers where they meet with the fenders. It is a phillips type head. Once all the fasteners are removed, you simply pull the cover towards you. Try keep from scarring the paint up. It would be ideal to have a carpet to set the cover on. The headlight assembly it self has 4 bolts attaching it to the core support. Two retain it at each end if you look from the top downwards at each end you will see them. The other two are at the outer end of the light assembly, one going in from the side at the bottom and one going in from the front at the bottom, close to the one near the side. It should be simple to figure out how to disconnect to connector from the bulb it self.
As for the actual bulbs: There is a plastic cap for the outer (low beam) Xenon bulb which you turn in a counter clockwise direction to unlock it from the housing. Next you will see a type of retaining spring which you unlock. It will be obvious as to how you unlock it. Replace the bulb "TAKE CARE NOT TO TOUCH THE ACTUAL GLASS PART OF THE BULB". Same procedure for halogen bulbs. For the high beams: The only additional procedure necessary is on the left side which entails the removal of the air cleaner housing for access. BE VERY CAREFUL in disconnecting the electrical and also exercise caution with the large hose going to the throttle body. If it gets damaged, the car will not run well.
Should you need more specifics, let me know and I'll be happy to reply.

Have you checked the window regulator. (electric window motor). I seems a comon problem for the plastic to break at the bottom where the wire which pulls the glass up and down. The motor will still sound (clunk) if you use the window switch but will not lift the window.
Remove the trim off the door.
Undo the bolts holding the glass into the plastic at the bottom of the window and carefully remove the glass.
Unbolt and remove the sliding piece that holds the glass.
You should find the broken plastic at the bottom.
Replace and reinstall. Aftermarket parts are available at a fraction of the cost of buying new nissan parts. Second hand parts are available but costly.
