How do you get to the brake light in a 2004 Maxima?

I cannot figure out how to take the lens cover off so I can replace the brake light bulb on the drivers side (not 3rd light). The owners manual is useless. Help.

You have to go in the trunk and move the cloth covering away from the light casing, then twist the bulb out

My 2004 maxima rear lights dont work but brake lights do can it be a fuse or the bulb


Could be either one. I'd start by checking the fuse, and if it is okay then checking the bulb. Both sides could have the bulb go out at the same time, but it is more likely the fuse, and the brake lights work off a different circuit. Hope this helps. Good luck :O)

2002 nissan maxima , parking light on driver side not working. checked bulb and light housing. both good. what else should i check for before entering hariness???


You might want to test the wire with a test light to see where you have power up to.There could be a brake in the wire somewhere or a loose ground.
I'll also add this video in case someone needs to figure out how to remove the actual lens.

How difficult is changing brake light on 2004 Envoy?


Hi. Its quite easy and i have a guide that will help you achieve your goal.

Step1 Determine how the bulb is accessed: On some models the lens (the red or white plastic part over the light) must be unscrewed from the outside, and on others the bulb is accessible only from inside the trunk. If there are no screws on the lens, you can assume that the bulb must be replaced from inside. Usually there will be a plastic cover that must be removed in order to access the bulb. There may be tabs, screws or small knobs that hold this plastic cover in place. Step2 replacelight_2s.jpg Unscrew the lens on the outside, or take off the plastic cover from inside the trunk, to reveal the bulb. Step3 replacelight_3s.jpg Unscrew the bulb. You'll have to push in and turn at the same time. Step4 Take the bulb with you to the auto supply store to help you find an exact duplicate. Step5 replacelight_5s.jpg Clean the connection with a wire brush and/or wipe it clean with a rag if there's any corrosion. Step6 replacelight_6s.jpg Screw the new bulb into the empty socket. Again, you'll have to push in and turn simultaneously. Line up the tiny raised bumps on the base of the bulb in order to screw it in. Step7 Replace the lens or the plastic cover. Step8 replacelight_8s.jpg Test your work by stepping on the brakes and turning on the headlights while a friend watches the new bulb to make sure it lights up.

Please rate and god bless.

There is a plastic cover on the lens that covers the screws that hold the lamp on to the body. CAREFULLY pry the cover off to access screws, remove the screws and CAREFULLY pry the lens off. Replace bulb(s) reinstall after checking to see if bulbs are in fact working.
