Hi. I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

In this video today, we're going to show you how to replace a fog light bulb in a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder.

Now we have our vehicle raised up, you do not need to raise the vehicle to do this. We're going to start with a flat blade screwdriver. You could also use a trim tool. We're going to take this piece of trim out. Just pry underneath here. There's some clips, and it should pry right off. The clips are right there and right there. It's held in like that.

Okay so we're going to take the assembly out; there's two ten millimeter bolts right here. I'm going to use a ten millimeter socket, an extension and a ratchet. Once you have those out, we can pull on the fog light. There are some tabs right here. You want to slide it towards the center of the vehicle. Flip it over. There's some water in this wiring harness. We have a connector right here. To release it, we're going to push down on the tab and then wiggle it back and forth and pull it out. This is how you would change the assembly if you need to replace the whole assembly.

Right, we're going to reconnect the electrical connector. Make sure there's no dirt in there. It looks okay. Just slide it on. It should lock in just like that. Then these two slots aree going to go in over here. Slide those in first, and line up the holes for the bolts. I'll take the two ten millimeter bolts, get those started, and then I'll use my ratchet to tighten them down. We'll just tighten them snug; remember it is plastic so you don't want to over tighten it and crack the plastic. Remember this fog light assembly is glass so you don't want to drop it. Now to reinstall this trim piece, we're going to slide this side in, like that and then push it in.
