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 low beam, high beam or front turn signal bulb in the headlight assemblies.

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.

Replacement headlight bulbs with their part numbers are as follows: Low Beam # H11, High Beam # 9005, and Front Turn Signal # 1157A.

No tools are needed to change any of the bulbs on the passenger side. The driver side requires a small flathead screwdriver to remove the black plastic air intake.
