This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 3rd generation 2009 to 2012 Nissan Cube in replacing combination low/high beam, front turn signal and front sidemarker light bulbs in the headlight assemblies.

Owners of earlier 1998-2002 or 2002-2008 Nissan Cube vehicles or other Nissan models such as the Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Juke, Rogue and Murano may also find this guide to be helpful.

The headlight assembly of a 09-12 Nissan Cube contains the following light bulbs with their respective part numbers: High & Low Beam # 9003 (A.K.A. "HB2"), Turn Signal # 7507 (amber colored), and Side Marker (Parking) # 2825.

No tools are needed to replace either the low/high beam headlight bulb or the turn signal bulb. A small flathead screwdriver is helpful when replacing the side marker bulb.

The combination high and low beam bulb is located in the middle of the headlight assembly between the amber colored side marker and the amber colored turn signal.

Reach behind the headlight assembly and gently pull off the black power connector from the high/low beam bulb.

Then remove the black rubber circular dust cover that prevents dust or dirt from entering the headlight.

Avoid touching the glass part of the new 9003 or HB2 headlight bulb with your fingers or anything dirty in the engine bay.

If you do get the bulb dirty, wipe it off with a paper towel or tissues moistened with rubbing alcohol.

Insert the new bulb straight into the headlight assembly with the flat part of the third power prong facing up towards you as shown in the picture above.

Swing the metal retaining clip over to the opposite side and hook it in place to secure the new headlight bulb.

The side marker or "parking light" bulb is located closest to the outside edges of the vehicle.
