Change brake light on 2006 Xterra

How do i change the brake lamp bulb in a 2006 nissan Xterra. the owners manual shows a diagram of two bolts holding the taillight assembly to the body. After I remove these bolts the assembly does not come off. Do I need to do something special from here. Thanks for any advice. Tony

    Same thing here.  The bolts come off, but the lamp housing is still attached.

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.

Brake lights do not turn on at all? Is there a fuse (where and which one)?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Check your bulbs and fuse first. The fuse is in your fuse box and it should be labeled, such as tail lamp possibly. If the fuse and the bulbs are good, you probably need to change the brake switch. It is located right above your brake pedal. You may want to try to mess with the release button because sometimes they get stuck. If it is not, change the whole switch. It cost about 20 dollars. It is a round chrome looking cylinder more then likely. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks for using FixYa and have a good day. For the fuse, check under your hood.

How to remove a taillight?


To replace the brake light bulb for the Nissan xTerra 2002, remove the two bolts that anchor the light cover. A 10mm socket wrench fits. Then grasp the light cover with both hands and pull straight towards you. Be firm. It may groan but it will come out. The bulb assemply is then easy to access. When replacing the cover, simply repeat the process backwards. The light cover will snap into place, then replace the bolts

I need to change the break light on a nissan xterra 2003


I have never seen a car with a break light. Does it come on when the car breaks? See owners manual to change a stop light bulb that comes on when you step on the brakes.

Remeove rear combination tail light cover 2006 Nissan XTERRA


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

My high level brake light has bruned out,(third brake light). I was informed by the dealer the back window panel has to be removed to replace the 3.00 dollar bulb, total cost 75.00 dollars. With some


replace the bulb...??? This requires you remove the rear package deck (to access the bulb & socket). to do this, remove the seat bottom (two bolts hold the rear seat bottom to the chassis, then remove the bolts which hold the shoulder cushions (LH & RH - 12mm bolts) then remove the cosmetic molding around the trunk access (7 to 8 screws) then remove the "C" pillar covers (SRS curtain airbag LH & RH) to access the rear deck package & access the third brake lamp bulb. replace it, then reassemble.

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.
