This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 3rd generation 2009 to 2012 Nissan Cube in replacing a burnt out overhead map light bulb.

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

A replacement bulb for the three overhead map lights of a Nissan Cube is part # 168 from Sylvania, GE, Phillips and other manufacturers.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver. Insert the blade of the flathead screwdriver in between the clear map light bulbs lens cover and the light grey plastic housing. Gently pry out the clear plastic cover.
