Was able to complete this job successfully:
It's a little tricky to do without pictures, but I don't have any available right now.

  1. Access the trunk
  2. Remove the material covering the light. You'll need to remove the black pegs by lifting the centre part. A flathead screw-driver will help. There are 2 to remove -- one directly behind the brake light and another at the top of the trunk.
  3. Pull back the material to expose the brake light wiring and the metal frame of the car.
  4. There are 2 nuts / screws to remove near the entrance of the trunk. Both are about 4 inches apart and hold the tail light's cover in place. Remove both.
  5. Using a bit of force, you will be able to pull off the entire tail light from the frame of the car. This is done on the exterior of the car.
  6. Rotate the problematic light from it's housing (it should come off with ease) and pull it out of the socket. Brake light and indicator are a 3057K bulb.

    It was very helpful but didn't solve our problem. It must be some thing else. When you put the lights on it lights but when you step on the brake the bulb doesn't light. Going to try and change the bulb tomorrow if no luck will be taking it to nissan to have it fixed. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks Amy

    If power is getting to the light when you turn the lights on, but it does not turn on when you hit the brakes, I would think that you might have a wiring problem. Let me know if changing the bulb solves this or if Nissan has to do something further.

Open your trunk and look on the underside of the "rear dash" towards the center. You either can replaces bulb by twisting the pigtail going to the light or you may have to unscrew a couple of bolts to remove the brake light housing. Hope this helps.
