Question about 2005 Nissan Altima
Just wanted to know how to replace brakelight bulb on my 2005 nissan altima.
The first objective is to figure out which bulb you need. I had to replace the bulb for the largest light which was a Sylvania 3157. The next objective is to remove the dang plastic carpet holder/net clip. Recognize that it is a two part piece. Use a flathead screwdriver for leverage. Pry the cap off by levering the screwdriver in the slot on the holder. Then go behind the carpet and pinch the plastic pin still holding the holder in place. Next,pry off the while plastic pieces from the two bolt/nuts you'll need to remove (see manual). Remove the nuts and give the two screws a push from the inside so you can see how the whole light casing comes off. Pry it off from the outside. On the backside of the bulb holder, turn bulb base counterclockwise and gently remove. Pull bulb upward and replace. Do not touch glass on new bulb with your fingers (wear non-powdered rubber gloves). Make sure the bulb snaps in place. Follow these instructions in reverse. Smile, you just learned something new and saved yourself some easy money.

You should be able to get to your tail light assembly through your boot just open boot and eitherside you should have removable sockets for your lights under your carpets just unscrew the plastic carpet holders behind that is your taillight assembly

Pry open the brake light assembly by accessing it from the backseat. Once out, rotate the bulb to remove it. But a replacement bulb from Autozone ( you will get 2 for 4$), plug-in the bulb and rotate it back in the plastic assembly and you're all set.
It's fairly simple once you've removed the brake light assembly..
Hope this helps

Open trunk, remove carpet snaps over the taillight you need to change bulb in. remove the taps off the two screws/think they are gold/have white wire guides stuck on them. then go outside and pull on taillight assembly. taillight bulb is second up from bottom. pull out/replace with new bulb/reassemblel.

Don't look at the color boxes on the box ratings they will get you mixed up. On the inside of the
tailgait assembly there's two plastics one grey and one yellow. They have nothing to do with the
replacement of the bulb, read directions carefully.
