This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the sixth generation "B16" (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012) Nissan Sentra sedan in changing a burnt out cargo area light bulb in the trunk.

Owners of other Nissan vehicles such as the Versa, Cube, Altima, Maxima, Leaf, Pathfinder, 370Z, Juke, Rogue, Xterra, Murano and Quest may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement bulb is part number 158 which is available from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, PIAA and Eiko.

If necessary, you may also use any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 168, W5W, 2825 or a brighter LED unit.

No tools are needed to replace the bulb.

Empty Bulb Socket
The first two steps are to pop open the trunk and then locate the bulb housing on the ceiling of the trunk in between the two rear deck speakers.

Gently pull back the plastic retaining clip on the front of the housing and swing open the plastic cover.

If the old bulb was recently on or it is still illuminated, be careful since the bulb may be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket.
