Is there somewhere that sells just the metal clips that hold the headlight bulb in place on 2002 Nissan Altima?

  • Hi, this is sort of a specialty part. You can try the dealership but if I were you I would try a local salvage yard or junk yard. They should have them laying around and probably just cost you a couple of dollars where the dealership would for sure have them but would cost more than they are really worth.

  • If you have any comments you can leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Car is completely dead, like somebody shot it dead! No sounds, no light, can't shift out of park into neutral or anything....everything completely warning whatsoever!

Always clean the battery terminals before jumping. An extremely dead battery may not accept a jump as it serves as a 'buffer" instead of helping. If you do get it started, charge battery with a battery charger then have alternator and battery tested for proper operation and check belt condition and tension as well.
