2020 QX60 Footwell
Footwell Light Bulb
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2020) Infiniti QX60 luxury SUV in changing a burnt out footwell light bulb.

Owners of other Infiniti and Nissan vehicles such as the JX35, Q50, Q60, QX50, QX80, Pathfinder, Murano, Rogue, Armada, Kicks, Frontier, Titan, NV, NV200, 370Z, GT-R, Leaf, Maxima, Altima, Sentra and Versa might also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement miniature wedge base light bulb is part number 168 which is available from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Maxell, PIAA, Bosch and Philips.

If you would like to have brighter footwell lights, install some 168 LED bulbs.

No tools are needed to access and replace the light bulbs.

The steps for replacing the front passenger footwell bulb under the glove box is the same as for the driver side footwell bulb.


Pull Out Old Light Bulb
Old Light Bulb Removed
If the old light bulb was recently turned on, be careful when you remove it. The old bulb might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Grasp the old bulb with your thumb and forefinger before pulling it straight out.

The OEM (original equipment manufacturer) footwell light bulb in this 2020 QX60 wasn't marked with a part number.

Any miniature wedge base light bulb such as the 168, W5W, 2825 or 194 light bulb should work.

I recommend upgrading to a 168 LED bulb that will be brighter, generate much less heat and last a lot longer before burning out.

Empty Bulb Socket
Push In New Light Bulb
Push a new light bulb straight into the socket.

If the new light bulb doesn't turn on immediately, press the "Unlock" button on the key fob to re-activate the interior lights.

Testing New Light Bulb
Bulb Change Complete
Tip - If you installed LED bulbs and they don't work, try removing them from their sockets, rotating them 180 degrees and pushing them back into their sockets. Some LED bulbs are polarized and will only work when the "+" positive and "-" negative electrical contacts are in the correct orientation.
