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 step courtesy light bulb at the bottom of the passenger door panels.

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 step courtesy light bulb is part number 194 from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

You may also choose to use any other miniature wedge base bulb such as the W5W, 168, 2825 or a brighter LED unit.

The only tool needed to replace the step courtesy bulb is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the light housing.

You may choose to cover the tip of the flathead screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth to prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the rear edge of the step courtesy light housing and the door panel.

Gently pry out the housing and disconnect the power plug.

Carefully push the old bulb out of the socket with the small flathead screwdriver.
