How do you change a headlight bulb in a 1996 Nissan Maxima?

There is a retaining ring at the front of the receptacle stem,

which locks the light into place. This has to be rotated

counter-clockwise to loosen the fixture first. Once the ring is

loose, the assembly will fall out easily.

There is a retaining hook built into the light and a latch on

top of the receptacle you must loosen to free it. When you pull up

on the this latch far enough, you will be able to pull the light

out and replace it.

Place everything back in the right order and you're done!
