Question about 2005 Nissan Maxima SL
Check earthing of relay switch and HL assembly
Posted on Dec 28, 2013
Could be the wiring or the switch, turn on the headlamps and put a testlight in the plug of the lamp that doesnt burn and see if you have power, if no power go to the switch and check continuity between switch and headlamp plug, if no continuity replace broken wire. If there is contunuity replace headlamp switch.

The headlamp is a semi-sealed beam type which uses a replacable
halogen bulb. The bulb can be replaced from the engine compartment
side without removing the headlamp body.
I Grasp only the plastic base when handling the bulb. Never
touch the glass envelope.
1. Disconnect the battery cable.
2. Disconnect the harness connector from the back side of the
3. Pull off the rubber cap.
4. Press end of the retaining pin together to release bulb.
5. Remove the headlamp bulb. Do not shake or rotate the bulb
when removing it.
6. Install the new bulb in reverse order of removal.

jorgeva: on the driver's side to gain access, you must remove the air cleaner assembly. At that point, you can see the back of the light which has a plastic cap. Rotate this "counter clockwise" and you can pull it back from the back of the lamp housing. From there you will see how the bulb it self is plugged in, which is obvious. Unplug it. There is a "spring "like latch retainer to hold the bulb in place. Unlatch it, remove the bulb and install the new bulb.
CAUTION!!!!!!! DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS AREA OF THE NEW BULB! Only handle the rear section. Reassemble in the reverse order.
The right side will require the removal of the windshield washer tank.
I trust this will have answered your question. If you would, let me or FIXYA know if I have solved your problem......

You can purchase a Haynes Manual or go on-line to nissantechinfo.com and purchase the factory service manual in .pdf format and download it for around $20 bucks for an hour of access. If yours is an HID bulb the cost is mostly the bulb. And, if you are not familiar with HID then I would let them do it. But, if you feel comfortable just jack up the car on the driver's/passanger side and remove the tire to get access to the inner fender well. Remove the clips and screws and you now have access to the back of the headlight assembly. Remove the access cover on the assembly and you will find the back of the bulb. If it just a turn and the access cover comes off and then the same for the bulb.
