Nissan Versa Headlight
Dual Low & High Beam Bulb
Headlight Power Connector

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.

Pull Off Power Plug
Remove Rubber Dust Boot
Rubber Dust Cover Removed
The dual filament low and high beam bulb is located at the middle of the headlight assembly.

Look behind the headlight in the engine bay and gently pull off the black plastic power connector from the low/high beam bulb.

Then remove the black rubber dust boot that surrounds the headlight bulb and set it aside in a safe place.

Low/High Beam Bulb
Release Metal Retaining Arms
Swing Arms Outward
The headlight bulb is held in place by a two prong metal retaining arm.

Push on the left (driver) side of the metal retaining arms to unhook them both and then swing the clip off the rear of the bulb.

Pull Out Headlight Bulb
Headlight Bulb Socket
Insert New 9003 HB2 Bulb
Once the metal retaining clip is out of the way, you can easily pull the headlight bulb out of the housing.

Insert the new 9003 or HB2 low/high beam headlight bulb into the headlight assembly with the three metal tabs orientated as they are in Picture # 12 above.

Try to avoid touching the glass part of the new halogen bulb with your fingers or to anything greasy in the engine bay. If you do get the bulb dirty, wipe it clean with a paper towel moistened with rubbing alcohol.

Close Retaining Arm
Replace Rubber Dust Boot
Push On Power Connector
Swing the metal retaining arm back over the headlight bulb and hook the two arms in place to secure the bulb.

Push the rubber dust boot on to the rear of the headlight assembly to protect the new bulb.

Carefully push the power connector plug on to the bulb's metal contacts until it is fully seated.

The front turn signal bulb is located at the bottom edge of the headlight assembly closest to the center line of the vehicle.

Rotate the socket 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pull it straight of the headlight housing.

Remove Turn Signal Bulb

Rotate the socket 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pull it straight out of the headlight housing.

Pull the old side marker bulb straight out of the socket and push in a new # 2827 or WY5W bulb.
