2014 Murano Reading Light
Insert Flathead Screwdriver
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 rear passenger personal reading light

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 was a Toshiba 12V8W.

It can be replaced with any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 158, 168, W5W, 2825, 194 or a compatible LED unit.

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

Old Bulb Exposed
Pull Out Old Bulb
Empty Bulb Socket
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the blade of the screwdriver in between the rear edge of the lens cover and the light housing.

Gently pry out the lens cover and set it aside in a safe place.

Be careful when removing the old bulb. If it was recently illuminated, it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

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

The OEM bulb is a Toshiba 12V8W.

You can instead use one of the other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 168, W5W, 2825 or a compatible LED unit.

Push a new bulb straight in to the socket.
