2014 Murano Step Light
Gently Pry Out Lens Cover
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 courtesy step light bulb located in the housing at the bottom of the plastic interior door panel.

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.

The OEM bulb is a Toshiba # 161.

You may also use any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the number 158, 168, W5W, 2825, 194 or a compatible LED unit.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry off the translucent plastic lens cover.

Pry Out At Bottom Edge
Lens Cover Removed
Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the lens cover and the interior door panel.

Gently pry out the lens cover. You may need to re-insert the screwdriver in to the other edge.

Try to avoid using excessive force. The lens cover should pop out relatively easily.

Set the lens cover aside in a safe place.

Pull Out Old Bulb
Old Toshiba # 161
Be careful when you remove the old bulb. It it was recently illuminated, it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket.


Empty Bulb Socket
Push In New 168 or W5W
Push a new miniature wedge base bulb such as the 168, 194, W5W, 2825 or a compatible LED unit straight in to the socket.

If the new bulb is working properly, it should light up immediately.

Snap On Lens Cover
New Courtesy Bulb Installed
Line up the lens cover over the bulb housing and gently pop it back in to place.
