This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and probably also the refreshed 2019 & 2020 model years) Nissan Murano SUV in changing a burnt out fog light bulb in the front bumper cover.

Owners of other Nissan and Infiniti vehicles such as the Rogue, Pathfinder, Armada, Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Leaf, 370Z, GT-R, Frontier, Titan, NV200, Q50, Q70, Q60, QX30, QX50, QX60, QX70 and QX80 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement halogen fog light bulb part number is H11.

If you would like to have brighter fog lights, install some compatible H11 LED bulbs.

The tools needed to access and replace the bulbs include a small flathead screwdriver and a plastic pry bar tool.

Pop Rivet Under Bumper
The first step is to turn the steering wheel all the way in the opposite direction of the burnt out fog light bulb.

This will give you more room to access the wheel well liner by the front tire.

There is a black plastic pop rivet friction fastener at the bottom of the wheel well liner or "splash guard" and also another one on the underside of the front bumper cover.

Pry out the smaller center piece of the pop rivet to unlock it.

Then pry out the base of the fastener from the wheel well liner. Set it aside in a safe place.

Look under the front bumper cover and locate the larger pop rivet fastener that secures the bottom of the wheel well liner in place.

Pry out the center of the fastener with the plastic pry bar tool and then remove the base of the fastener.
