2014 Murano Cargo Light
Light Bulb Housing
Pry Out At Notch
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Nissan Murano SUV in changing a burnt out cargo area light bulb in the tailgate door or upgrading them both to brighter LED units.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Maxima, Juke, Rogue, Altima, Xterra, Pathfinder, Sentra, Cube, Armada, Leaf, Quest, Frontier, Teana, 370Z, GT-R, Titan, G25, G37, M35, QX56, QX60 and M37 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement cargo area light bulb is part number DE3175 which is available from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

You may also be able to use the # DE3022 (29mm), 6418 (35mm), 6411 (41mm) or an LED bulb.

The only tool needed to replace the bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the light housing.

Pull Out Bulb Housing
Disconnect Power Plug
Light Housing Removed
Open the tailgate door and locate the small notch on the cargo area light housing opposite of the "On/Off" switch.

Insert the blade of your small flathead screwdriver in to the notch and gently pry out the light housing from the plastic panel.

Pull out the light housing and press the release tab on the electrical connector before sliding it straight out of the socket.

Pull Out Old Light Bulb
Old # DE3175 Bulb
Install New Festoon Bulb
Gently pull back the metal electrical connector and remove the old bulb from the socket.

Insert a new # DE3175 festoon style bulb in to the socket. You can also use a brighter LED bulb.

If necessary, you can use a slightly longer bulb such as the 6418 (35mm), 6423 (36mm) or 6411 (41mm) by just bending back the metal electrical contact.

Push On Power Plug
Gently Pop In Light Housing
Test New Cargo Area Bulb
Push the power plug straight on to the light housing.

Re-insert the wires first and then gently snap in the retaining tab on the other side of the housing.

Test the new cargo area light bulb by sliding the black plastic "On/Off" switch to the "On" position.
