The Headlight Assembly is not difficult to remove but you do need to be careful NOT to pull on the Headlight Assembly and break the clips

1. Open the S60's hood and locate the pin that is behind the headlight assembly of the bulb that needs replacement. The pin has a handle on the top. Pull the pin straight out of the headlight assembly.

  • 2. Push on the back of the headlight assembly until it comes out the front of the S60. There is an electrical connection on the back of the assembly; unplug the connection.

  • 3. Press on both clamp on the assembly. The clamps are on either side. Push them in together so that the cover releases.

  • 4 Uncover the bulb by pulling on the small plastic cover that covers each bulb. Push the visible wire aside. Pull the bulb straight out.

  • 5 Push a new bulb in and push the metal wire back over it to secure the bulb in the assembly. Push the covers back on.

  • 6. Reconnect the electrical harness to the assembly and push the assembly back into place. Push the retaining pin all the way back down into place.

    Not sure but maybe you should verify rear position lights located in the trunk.
    There are two bulbs on each side, even if you replaced one of them the other one could be burned.

    Marker lights wont go on

    on 1998 and earlier models, the side marker light housing is located next to the headlight housing. Remove the screws and pull out the housing to access the bulbholder on the back of the housing. On 1999 and later models, the park and turn signal bulbs are located in the bottom of headlight housing. Twist the bulbholders out to replace the park or turn signal bulbs. Installation is the reverse of the removal directions.

  • Turn the engine off and approach the side of the porsch with the burn-out side-marker light. If you are replacing both, start at either side; the replacement procedure is the same.
  • 2 Remove the screws from the plastic fender liner. Peel back the liner to access the area behind the fender.
  • 3 Reach your hand inside to gain access to the side-marker light's backing. Push the backing forward to release the side-marker lens; it's held in place by small clips.
  • 4 Grab the lens on the outer side and turn it over to access the back. Gently turn the bulb to release it from the plastic lens.
  • 5 Pull the bulb straight out to remove it from the electrical socket. Insert a new bulb, but do not touch the glass part of the bulb with your hand.
  • 6 Push the new bulb into the side-marker lens. Turn it clockwise to install it. Push the side-marker lens back into place. Apply gentle pressure to the lens to pop it back into its mount.
  • 7 Replace the screws along the edge of the fender liner.

    How to change side marker bulb in 1997 altima


    The marker lights are removed by depressing the tab (arrow) with a thin bladed tool. Take care not to scratch the paint

    1. Disengage the bulb and socket assembly from the lens housing.
    2. Gently grasp the light bulb and pull it straight out of the socket.
    To install:
    1. Before installing the light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
    2. Line up the base of the light bulb with the socket, then insert the light bulb into the socket until it is fully seated.
    3. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.
    4. Install the socket and bulb assembly into the lens housing.

    Bulb failure, position light

    Bulb failure, position light means you have a burned out light bulb somewhere. I had the same problem on my 2002 s60. It looked like all the lights were working but I found out that there are several bulbs in the tail lights, so even though the tail lights were working there was in fact a burned out bulb. Look at the bulbs a bit closer and you will probably find one thats bad.

    How do you change the rear side marker lights?

    If you mean replace burned bulbs, find the marker light and locate the wires on the back. Get a good hold on the plug and turn in 45 to 90 degrees and then pull out, replace the bulb and re-install.

    You probably have to access the bulb from the back of the bulb housing. The bulb is probably in a socket which plugs into the back. Twist and pull to remove it.

    No, you just remove the radiator grill and the side marker light and the headlight housing bolts and it comes out. Not a real hard job and is Real straight forward. Good luck and have a good day.
