How do I replace the third brake light on a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder

I have removed the three caps covering the screws on the brake light assembly and the screws thinking the cover would come off but there seems to be another screw holding the assembly down. I didn't want to pry on it too much and brake something. Help!

    Now that i am thinking of your problem, In some cases there is a reflective cover behind the bulb, and some manufactures hide screws there.Have another look and let me know if this helps !

SOURCE: How do you remove the brake light assembly on a 2006 Nissan Armada

These can be a "bugger"... Once you have the 2 screws out, I usually get a small screwdriver wrapped in a rag between the lamp and the quarter panel (on the side of the vehicle) and gently pry the lamp straight towards the back. You might think that something is going to break and just when you think it will for sure, it will pop loose and the lamp will be in your hands, so be ready to catch it.

Good luck!

I just changed out a tailight on my 2000 Nissan Xterra, so I assume it may be similar. You have to pop the plastic strip which runs across the back. There are pop rivits in it.

How do I remove the dashboard on a 1995 nissan pathfinder 4x4

There should be "plugs" that cover the dash screws. First, remove the steering column covers. Locate the dash screws as described above. Be careful pulling then down as sometimes airvenys and other components are attached to the back side (usually on driver side).

1995 2 WD NIssan Pathfinder front brake rotor replacement

If you are in need of replacing the front brake rotors on your Pathfinder it is an easy job, and here is how you can do it and save some money. First you will want to chock the wheels, loosen the lugs, jack the vehicle up, remove the wheel, remove the bolts that hold the wheel assembly to the caliper, there are 8 total, (you will want to have someone pressing the brake pedal so the wheel assembly will not turn during the bolt removal) then you will take the brake caliper, and assembly off. Then you will take the bearing dust cover off, you can do this by using a flat/common screwdriver and a hammer, (just make sure that you do not punture the dust cover) there you will see a keeper washer that has 2 screws in it, remove those screws, and use the flat/common screwdriver to take the washer out. You will now see what appears to be the same kind of washer, and you will notice that the spindle is threaded; using a metal punch, or a common screwdriver and a hammer you will use one of the holes on the nut and gently tap it free. Once you loosen and remove the nut the whole wheel assembly will come off (the wheel bearing needs to be kept free of debris, it will be the first thing that comes off when you pull the assembly off) and you will then be able to replace the rotor. This is a great time to replace the wheel assembly grease seals and bearings, if they are bad. Once you have replace the rotor, just reverse the steps above. When you are at the stage to reinstall the brake caliper, you will want to remove the top off of the master cylinder resivor and use a caliper spreader to open the caliper so it will fit over the new rotor.

Replace rotors 2003 nissan pathfinder

You'll need to remove the wheel bearings then they will come out. It will be the hub/rotor as an assembly once you remove it then you can unbolt the rotor from the back. Once you take the wheel off you'll see the hub cover take that off (its either bolted in or a metal cover you need to pry off with a flat head screw driver and hammer)
