2011 Rogue Dome Light
Pry Out Lens Cover
Easier To Pry On Left

This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2013) Nissan Rogue in changing a burnt out overhead map light bulb or upgrading them both to brighter LED units.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Cube, Sentra, Altima, LEAF, Maxima, Juke, Murano, Xterra, Pathfinder, Armada, Quest, Frontier, Titan, 370Z, G37, M37, EX37, FX37, JX35, and QX56 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement dome light bulb is part # DE3175 from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko, Putco, and PIAA.

The only tool needed to change the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the translucent plastic lens cover.

Dome Bulb Exposed
Press Metal Release Tab
Old Bulb Removed
Insert the blade of the flathead screwdriver in between the edge of the lens cover and the light housing. I was able to pry out the lens cover by prying at the right (passenger side) edge.

After removing the cover, it looked like it would have been easier to pry it off at the left (driver side) edge near the On/Off/Door switch.

Set the lens cover aside in a safe place.

Press the metal release tab on the left (driver side) of the dome bulb socket and pull out the old bulb.


Bulb Socket
Insert New DE3175 Bulb
Flip Switch To "On"
Insert the right (passenger) side of the new DE3175 bulb in first and then pop in the left side.

Slide the switch over to the "On" position to test the new bulb.

Pop Lens Cover In Place
Lens Replaced
Testing New Light Bulb
Line up the dome light lens cover and gently snap it back in to place.

Slide the switch to the "Door" position so that the light will turn on whenever a passenger door is opened.
