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 low beam, high beam, front turn signal or side marker light bulb in the headlight housings.

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 light bulb part numbers are as follows: Low Beam # H11, High Beam # H9, Front Turn Signal # 7444NA and Side Marker # 2825 (or "W5W").

The only tool you might need is to access the front turn signal light bulb on the passenger side is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool to remove the wiper fluid filler tube.
