Pry Out Light Bulb Housing

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & the revised 2015, 2016) Nissan Juke in changing a burnt out license plate light bulb in the tailgate door.

Owners of other Nissan vehicles such as the Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Cube, Leaf, Pathfinder, 370Z, Rogue, Xterra, Murano, Armada, Quest, Frontier and Titan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement license plate light bulb is part number 2825 which is available from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

You may also be able to use any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 158, 168, W5W, 194 or a compatible LED unit.

The only tool needed to replace the bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the light housing from the tailgate.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the side edge of the license plate light bulb housing and the tailgate.

Gently pry out the light bulb housing. If you have trouble removing the housing, try prying on the opposite edge.

Do not use excessive force, the bulb housing should pop out relatively easily.

Pull the bulb housing out of the tailgate.

Rotate the white plastic bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise and pull it out of the housing.
