This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2007 to 2012 Nissan Versa hatchback or sedan in replacing the combination low/high beam, turn signal or front side marker (parking) light bulbs in the headlight assemblies.

Owners of other related vehicles such as the Nissan Tiida, Latio, Cube, Leaf, Altima, Sentra, Maxima, Rogue, Murano, Xterra, Note, Micra, Wingroad, Grand Livina, Pulsar, Sunny, Almera, Aprio, Platina, Dodge Trazo, Dacia Logan, Sandero, Renault Clio, Modus, Twingo and the Grand Livina may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement bulbs with their part numbers are as follows: Low/High Beam # 9003 or HB2, Turn Signal # 7507, and Front Sidemarker (Parking) # 2827 or WY5W.

No tools are needed to replace any of the three headlight bulbs in a 07-12 Versa.
