This pertains to the 2005 Altima and perhaps the 2006. There are two 10mm bolts on the top of the headlight and a pin on the inner side (towards the grill) of each light (which pulls straight out towards the front of the car). HOWEVER, there is a third bolt hidden by the front bumper covering on the outside front of the headlight. This is completely covered by the fascia of the bumper. I had to partially remove the front inner fender (one small bolt, three Phillips screws and plastic removable push pin/rivets (reusable), then reach under the now exposed insides near the headlight to remove a 10mm bumper bolt, and partially drop the bumper fascia to reach the hidden bolt. This allows the whole headlight assembly to be removed and easily access the back and all of the lamps. I did this so I could install aftermarket h.i.d. (high intensity discharge) headlamps in my car. I have installed h.i.d.s on a number of cars, but this was by far the worst and most time consuming of any of them. It really helps to know about that third hidden bolt!
** You can pull out the airfilter (one bolt and 2 pull connections on bottom so use a but of force to push it out) which gives you full access to the back of the bulb and enough room to reach the 3 bolt on bottom if you need to replace more then just the bulb. But if you are just replacing the bulb this is easiest. Took about 12-15 minutes. (driver side)
*** i had to remove a 4th 10mm bolt from Fender into the headlight assembly on my 2005 Altima. Rusty bolts on the fron of the car broke off... argh!@#$ and my freakin High Beam light on the passenger still doesn't work drats! 2 10mm on the top, locator pin on inside of lamp assembly, release the 10mm bolt from the fender into the HL ass'y after taking the three Philips screws and 4 clips off each side... i took closer to 1.5 hrs first time.
