Re: How do I change brake light bulb of Nissan Sentra...
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.
Access the trunk
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.
Pull back the material to expose the brake light wiring and the metal frame of the car.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Open the trunk and locate the trim door that covers the back of the drivers side tail light assembly. Open the door and locate the bulb holder. The bulb holder can be removed from the tail light assembly housing by turning counter clockwise 1/4 turn. Holding the bulb holder in one hand, press gently on the bulb and turn then bulb counter clockwise to remove. Replace with a combo bulb and reverse proceedure to re-install.
