Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the manual lock switch on this 2004 Nissan Titan. We show you on the driver's side, but the passenger's side is a similar procedure. The only tools you'll need for this are a flat blade screwdriver and a 10mm socket and ratchet.

Start off by prying off this little panel back here behind the door handle and then this panel along your pull handle. Then you want to remove this 10mm bolt, this 10mm bolt, and this 10mm bolt right here. You can use a Phillips screwdriver instead if you'd prefer. Using a flat blade screwdriver, pry up on the side of your switch pack. Then lift the front up and then slide the back forward, and then push the tab on each of these harnesses and pull them free. Now, pull out along the door panel to release the clips and lift it up and out of the window sill. Then push the tabs on either side of this harness and pull it free. Then push this forward, lift it up and out and do the same thing with this one.

Flip your door panel over and push the tabs on your manual lock switch and just push it through the panel. Then take your new switch and push it up into place.

To replace your door panel take your lock cable, push it back down into place, and then slide that back into the bracket, and do the same thing with your door handle cable. Then, reconnect your courtesy light. Then lift your door panel back up unto the window sill, making sure that your switch pack harnesses are going back up through the door panel. Once you have it in place make sure the clips line up and just hit them back in. Reconnect your switch pack. Then slide this tab on the back down in first and then push the front down. Then, replace those three 10mm Phillips' bolts. Push the small panel behind your door handle back into place and then the small panel in your pull handle in place and you're all set.
