This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the seventh generation (2013, 2014, 2015 and maybe also the refreshed 2016 and 2017 model years) Nissan Sentra sedan in changing a burnt out low beam, high beam, front turn signal or side marker light bulb in the headlight housings.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Maxima, Juke, Rogue, Altima, Xterra, Pathfinder, Murano, Cube, Armada, Leaf, Quest, Frontier, Teana, 370Z, GT-R, Titan, G25, G37, M35, QX56, QX60 and M37 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM light bulb is a Toshiba 158.

A few other replacement miniature wedge base bulbs with their part numbers are as follows: 168, W5W, 2825, 194 or a compatible LED unit.

Empty Bulb Socket
The first two steps are to open the trunk lid and then locate the round plastic lens cover.

Gently pry open the lens cover with your finger nail or a small flathead screwdriver.

If the old light bulb was recently turned on, be careful since it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Pull the old light bulb straight out of the socket.

Trunk Light Bulb Replaced
The OEM light bulb was a Toshiba 158, but it may be easier to use the more common compatible miniature wedge base bulbs such as the 168, W5W or 2825.

Push a new light bulb straight in to the socket.

Flip the plastic lens cover closed over the new light bulb.

If the new light bulb didn't turn on immediately, test it by opening and closing the trunk or by pressing the "Unlock" button on the key fob to activate the interior lights.
