How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a 1998 Nissan Maxima?

Open the hood and find the electrical lead into the headlamp: that plugs directly into the bulb, which is screwed into the headlamp. You just need to remove the plastic shield over the back of the headlamp to gain access, unplug the electrical lead, and unscrew the bulb. Replace the bulb, reattach the lead, and reinstall the shield. A 10-minute job!

Make sure the headlights have been off for at least 45 minutes before you attempt to replace one of them. Remove the wiring harness on the back of the headlamp you wish to replace. Next, turn the weather cover clockwise and remove it. Inside the assembly, you'll see some retaining clips on the socket. They need to be released. Next, slide the socket out of the assembly and remove the bulb. Insert the new bulb, put the socket back into the assembly, and replace the clips. Put the weather cap back on and reattach the wiring harness.

there are a couple mounting screws that hold the headlamp assembly on, unscrew them and the headlamp assembly should come out... and then you pull the connector off the headlamp by pulling up gently on the locking tabs and pulling back at the same time. then twist the locking ring, remove the old lamp and dispose of, replace w/new lamp and reverse directions. the lamp should only fit in the holder one way and there are notches in the headlamp assembly to make you insert it that way. some people with smaller hands can do this without removing the headlamp assembly but i have some bearclaws so i have to take the lamp out to replace the lightbulbs.
