Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Headlights

Replacing the halogen headlight bulb (if so equipped)

The headlight is a semi-sealed beam type which uses a replaceable headlight (halogen) bulb.

They can be replaced from inside the engine compartment without removing the headlight assembly.

If headlight bulb replacement is required, it is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service.

CAUTION

  • Aiming is not necessary after replacing the bulb. When aiming adjustment is necessary, it is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service or qualified workshop.
  • Do not leave the headlight assembly open without a bulb installed for a long period of time. Dust, moisture, smoke, etc. entering the headlight body may affect bulb performance. Remove the bulb from the headlight assembly just before a replacement bulb is installed.
  • Only touch the base when handling the bulb. Never touch the glass envelope.

    Touching the glass could significantly affect bulb life and/or headlight performance.

  • High pressure halogen gas is sealed inside the halogen bulb. The bulb may break if the glass envelope is scratched or the bulb is dropped.
  • Use the same number and wattage as shown in the chart.

Fog may temporarily form inside the lens of the exterior lights in the rain or in a car wash. A temperature difference between the inside and the outside of the lens causes the fog. This is not a malfunction. If large drops of water collect inside the lens, it is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service or qualified workshop.
