Insert Flathead Screwdriver

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fourth generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and maybe also the revised 2017 model year) Nissan Pathfinder SUV in changing a burnt out rear passenger courtesy personal reading light bulb located in the headliner housings near the grab handles.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Maxima, Juke, Rogue, Altima, Xterra, Sentra, Murano, Cube, Armada, Leaf, Quest, Frontier, Teana, 370Z, GT-R, Titan, G25, G37, M35, QX56, QX60 and M37 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM bulbs are Toshiba "12V8W U57".

A few compatible replacement miniature wedge base bulbs with their part numbers include the following: 2825, 168, 194, W5W or a brighter LED unit.

The only tool needed to access and replace the light bulb is a small flathead screwdriver.

To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the blade of the screwdriver in between the rear edge of the translucent plastic lens cover and the light housing.

Gently pry out the lens cover and set it aside in a safe place.
