2014 Altima Trunk Light
Gently Pop Open Cover
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2013, 2014, 2015 and probably also the refreshed 2016 model year) Nissan Altima sedan in changing a burnt out cargo area light bulb in the trunk.

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

A replacement bulb is part number 2825 or W5W which are available from manufacturers such as Sylvahia, GE, PIAA and Eiko.

You may also use any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 158, 168, 194 or a compatible LED unit.

No tools are needed to replace the bulb.

Lens Cover Opened
Pull Out Old Bulb
Gently pop open the lens cover on the trunk light.

If the old bulb was recently turned on, be careful since it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket.

Old # W5W Bulb

You may also use any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the 168, 158, 194 or an LED unit.
