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.

Replacement headlight bulbs with their part numbers are as follows: Low Beam # 9006, High Beam # 9005, Turn Signal # 3457 and Front Side Marker # 194 (or 168, W5W, 2825).

The only tool needed to change any of the bulbs is a standard Phillips head screwdriver.
