Find the big hose that comes out of the top of the radiator and follow it to the engine and that is where the thermostat is located. My advice is to be sure to get a factory thermostat and rubber gasket as it makes installation much easier. I have done it both ways and the factory one is easier to install.

SOURCE: Nissan Sentra shifter lamp replacement

Transmission shift indicator light on center console.
make sure the fuse is good.
If the fuse is good then remove the screws holding the center console cover. You will need a long and short phillip screwdriver. Look for screws in the cup holder, under the handbrake handle and where the console runs under the dash. You may have to move seats forward/backward to reach the screws. When you attempt to raise the console cover you will notice you overlook a screws. Remove them also. You may be able to reach the bulb without removing the gear shift handle. DO NOT TOUCH any other electronics you see. The AIRBAG ACTUATOR is located here also. Replace bulb. Test before reassembly. Good Saturday morning project.

SOURCE: how do you remove a door panel, 2002 nissan sentra

Frank, YA ready?????? The first thing is a kind of trim ring which snaps around the parameter of the inner door handle. You need a small flat faced screw driver and get a piece of cardboard which you can slip between the screw driver and the panel where ever you might pry against so you don't cut it or mark it.
Take the cardboard place it against the door panel right at the top of where the inner door handle trim ring is and out near the end at the top, push the screw driver under the ring , twist it a little and the ring will pop loose. Do the same on the bottom and the back of the ring hooks the the handle.
Next, on the end of the armrest, you can put the screw driver between the upper and lower sections at the back and lift up on the upper section. (it clips into the lower section. ) Once you have lifted it, the front section of it just hooks, so pull it backwards and you can remove it.
Next, look down into the little pocket you put your hand in when you pull the door shut. Most of the doors had a small plastic cap which you pry up and below that cap is a screw which you remove with a # 6 phillips screw driver (that is the most common size phillips used) Once the screw is out, move to the front of the arm rest and pry it up like you did the back one. It is designed the same way.
This part will have the switch(s) in it. The connector has a latch lever near the center of the connector where it plugs into the switch. Push the lever down while rocking the connector side to side a little while you pull on it. The connector should easily come out.
There are two screws which fasten the door panel to the door around the area where the arm rests were, They too are phillips head screws. On rare occasions you might find these two fasteners with bolts that have heads which a 10mm wrench or socket will fit.
The last place is the bottom. On the bottom out toward the ends are plastic clips which snap into the door shell it self and are affixed to the door panel. Pry lightly between the panel and the door shell and the panel should pop loose.
Once it is loose, you lift the panel up and off the door, do not swing it out away from the door.
If the door has lights at the bottom, unplug the light before removing the door panel, it will be obvious how it comes loose.
Good luck.
All the doors come apart about the same way.

Where is the starter on 1996 nissan sentra

The Starter is right next to the oil filter in a 1996 Nissan Sentra. You will need a floor jack and two jack stands. To Remove: Disconnect Negative Terminal From Battery. Then, get under the car, and disconnect the electrial connector (easier with a slotted screwdriver) Then using a 12 or 14mm socket, remove the bolt you can see mounting the starter to the engine. Now, pop open the hood. Get a deep socket, knuckle joint, extensions, etc. From above, you will remove the second and last bolt. If done properly, you should finish within 2+ hours.

Can i add sr20 parts to a stock nissan sentra engine to make it faster


Through an engineers point of view, it can be done but it will involve a lot of cash and engineering to a point that it will be very impractical. However, there are some parts that you can, more practically, import from an SR20 to stock Nissan sentra engines (EFI GA or QG series) like the air intake and turbo but it will, of course, involve a lot of technical expertise.

The best and most practical thing to do to make your stock engine faster is just to purchase or salvage performance parts from the same engine series or are intended for your engine and do a lot of fine tuning with them.

Good luck!

How can take off the old radio on my 1996 nissan sentra

Carefully remove the plastic around the radio with a flathead screwdriver and find the screws that are holding the radio into the dash...there should be two or four screws...after you remove the screws, pull the radio out and unplug the antenna and electrical plugs...if you are installing an aftermarket radio you may need a special adapter so you won't have to cut your original wire...look on ebay for that part
