    Need to reach clock on dashboard

    IF the clock is blank, check if its getting power, try pressing both of the buttons on the clock or if it has one, should react somehow. I think you need to open up the dashboard to get to the clock.

    Hello are the steps to follow per All Data.

    Release hood latch and open hood.
    Remove the headlamp assemblies.
    Hoist vehicle and support with safety stands.
    Remove the five push pin fasteners attaching bottom of fascia/air dam to radiator closure panel.
    Remove front wheels.
    Remove front wheelhouse splash shields fasteners as necessary to gain access to bolts attaching front fascia to fender.

    Disconnect fog lamp wire connectors, if necessary.
    Lower vehicle.
    Remove two bolts attaching the upper grille support to the headlamp mounting panel at each side of the grille.
    Remove bumper fascia from vehicle.

    Position front bumper fascia on vehicle (Fig. 1) and (Fig. 2).
    Install the two bolts attaching fascia to headlamp mounting panel at each side of grille.
    Hoist vehicle and support with safety stands.
    Install the two bolts and two nuts attaching fascia to the front fenders. The fascia should be flush to fender.

    Connect fog lamp wire connectors, if necessary.

    The "push pin fasteners" are the pain you are having i believe. They push in, but to get them out you need squeeze them on the back & pull at the same time. If you happen to break a few, you can buy them in various sizes at the auto parts store. I hope this information is helpful, an owners manual will not have any info like this in it.

    How do I remove and replace the entire head lamp?

    its pretty easy you take out the two bolts on the top i think they are 10mm heads on them, remove the push in clips across the front plastic fascia, if u break one they have them at parts house, and remove fascia. Gently but in a solid manner pull upward on lamp assembly. Almost like a little **** but be careful ur releasing a plastic retainer that goes into the fender , pull back light and unplug electrical harness. reverse procedure to install. may require a firm slap to front of assembly to reseat plastic retainer in fender

    My hazard light does not work on my 2002 honda accord and turn signals are not working either when i press the button in to turn the hazard light on it does not move its like it is stuck what do i do

    If the hazard button is stuck, turn signals wont work. If you havent done it, try wiggling the button, press it hard and release it to see if it springs back to position. If that doesnt work, try forcing it back with a precision flat screwdriver, taking care not to mar the fascia. If this doesnt work, you will ,unfortunately, have to take down the radio/ head unit fascia, where the button is installed. Look elsewhere on Fixya for instructions to disassemble an Accord dashboard fascia, it isn't easy.

    Replacing headlight bulb on 2006 maxima


    Replacing Your headlight bulb seem to be easy when You look at it, but quite technical. But If You get the proper guide, I think fixing this will not be difficult for You. You will be needing these instruments to fix this(Flathead screwdriver, Phillips head screwdriver, 3/8 inch drive ratchet, 3/8 inch drive 10 mm socket, Replacement bulb(s), Shop rags or towel), then You carefully follow the steps below to fix this:
    1. Turn the steering wheel all the way in toward the engine on the side you are changing the light bulb in. For the driver's side bulb replacement, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. For the passenger side bulb replacement, turn the steering wheel all the way to the left.
    2. Turn the ignition switch to the off position and remove the keys. Make sure the light switch is in the off position.
    3. Remove the retaining clips and screws from the front of the wheel well area, including the bottom splash shield valance underneath the front of the Maxima. The valance is attached to the wheel well and can be left intact. Use the Phillips head screwdriver for the screws and the flathead screwdriver to pop up the center post of the clips and then pry the clips out. Remove enough of the clips to gain access into the front fender cavity.
    4. Locate and turn the outer low-beam headlight cover counterclockwise to remove it. This will reveal the bulb and socket.
    5. Turn the bulb counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight assembly.
    6. Release the retaining pin (if applicable for theft deterrent package).
    7. Remove the wire harness plug from the bulb socket and then remove the bulb.
    8. Insert the new bulb into the socket without touching the glass of the bulb. Reverse the procedure to reinstall.
    But if it is the high beams bulb You want to replace, then please follow the steps below, It is the same instruments as before You will be needing to do this job.
    1. Release the hood latch if you're replacing the high beam bulb only. Then lift the hood. Locate the two 10 millimeter bolts at the top of the headlight assembly and remove them with the ratchet and the socket.
    2. Locate the four fascia retaining pins and remove them using the flathead screwdriver. This will allow flexible movement of the fascia to remove the headlight assembly.
    3. Place a shop rag or towel between the tight gap of the fascia and the bottom of the headlight assembly to prevent scratching the fascia.
    4. Maneuver the headlight assembly forward away from the front of the Maxima. There is a guide pin still retaining the assembly in place so apply equal parts of determination and gentleness to remove the assembly without scratching the lens or the fascia.
    5. Remove the headlight assembly far enough to get your hand behind it and remove the seal from the back of the high-beam headlight. Turn the seal counterclockwise to remove.
    6. Turn the bulb counterclockwise to remove from the assembly.
    7. Release the retaining pin (if applicable).
    8. Unplug the wire harness from the light bulb and remove the light bulb.
    9. Plug the new replacement bulb into the wire harness without touching the glass of the bulb.
    10. Reinstall by reversing the procedure.
    Hope this information helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!
