This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Nissan Armada in changing a burnt out cargo area light bulb by the tailgate door.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Cube, Sentra, Altima, LEAF, Maxima, 370Z, Juke, Rogue, Murano, Xterra, Pathfinder, Quest, Frontier, Titan, QX56, Q50, G37, EX37, QX60, FX37, FX50 and QX80 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement cargo area light bulb is part number DE3175 from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

You may also choose to use a brighter LED unit.

The only tool needed to replace the cargo light bulb is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the plastic lens cover.

To avoid scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to wrap the tip of the screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch at the left side of the lens cover and gently pry it out.

Press the spring electrical contact to release the old light bulb.

Insert one end of a new DE3175 bulb in to the stationary electrical contact and then pop the other end in to the hole on the flexible spring contact.

If you are installing an LED bulb and it doesn't work at first, try flipping it around 180 degrees in the socket.

Test the new bulb by sliding the switch to the "On" position.
