take out the connector that holds the bulb, black color that has 3 rectangular edges one.

plug out already, the rubbery hood that you are talking about, you find the ear of it, pull out as though you are pulling out condom like that. then kudos, u can release the bulb already.

Bro,

U put the pictures of the headlight already but how to get out the headlight from its casing under the hood?  Thsi 1 very the blur leh...!!   :crycry:

I cannot find any website which can help me to take out the bulb fromthe headlight INSIDE the car under the hood??  ..... :confused1:

I really damned chialat 1 u know....  go to Tan Chong, they kanna play me teruk teruk 1 .. say my 3 years warranty already over so now anything also, I kena buy from them.  They want to cut my balls of 1 leh!!   :out:

Better I buy from open market, the OEM version which is cheaper and put in myself.  But how to do that??  I ddon't know leh... :(

Can anybody help me??

This needs abit skill lor, use ur hand to go behind the headlight the feel where is the connectors, just like a blind man using his hand to feel objects. 1st timer takes time, once u feature it out, is very easy, not worth goto any workshop for replacement of bulbs

Bro,
Thanks v much for photos, they give me confidence to D-I-Y ... I managed to change the H4 bulb for the left headlamp in about 10-15 minutes ... not so easy as the left side has more cables and limited space to access the connector.

Hi, what about the bulb of the "small light" above the main headlight? do you guys change that?

What about the signal light bulbs? Where can we buy them?

For the headlights, I bought this http://list.gmarket.com.sg/item/SUPER-BRIGHT-100W-CAR-HEADLIGHT/404466102 . is it legal to change them?

Wah Lio.. brudders... Please lah.. why want to spend so much money buying from all of these places on the internet?

I buy from this shop on Veerasamy Road (near Serangoon Road) & get from all of my  bulbs, including the headlight, the signal indicator light, the small light above the headlight... his price very cheap 1 lor...

I buy the bulbs at only $5.00 for the MAIN headlight and about $2.00 for the small light and turning bulbs also.  He also has the high power 1, for about $8.00 per pair (not sure).  I change all of these bulbs myself and save all of that amount.

I will never go back to TCM for any of my LATIO's servicing or replacement of any parts....

Cheers...

not sure of the shop name.. but it is exactly opposite "EVERYMAN Cosmetics"...

I had to go around a few shops asking if they were selling Nissan parts and then finally somebody told me this guy does...

It is a small shop on the inside.. left side of the road....but this guy does wholesale & big quantities of export business...

I do not know the name... sorry bro....

What kind of bulb is the pole light? I just changed to Philips xtreme vision for the headlight, so now headlight whiter than the pole light. Any recommendation for the pole light, type and how to remove it? I think my headlight is at 4300K color.
