I just replaced the headlight bulb in my 1997 200SX-SE-R and it was easy (and I'm a total novice). Here's what I did: - got the right bulb for the car at the parts store - for mine, it's a 9004 number - pop and prop the hood - The bulb that was out was on the passenger side, so I had to move a plastic bottle (which I think was radiator overflow) out of the way by lifting it straight up, then setting it to the side. If the driver's side bulb is out, it might be necessary to move the battery, though perhaps not. - remove the electrical connection by pulling firmly backwards on the connector, which covers the whole end of the bulb-unit. - release the bulb-holder thing. This is a wire clip. I used a screwdriver, through the loop at the top, to pry it up and back gently and it sprung right off. It was hinged at the bottom so it didn't go anywhere. - take a quick look at the base of the bulb, so you can put the new one in there in the same orientation. - tug on the base of the old bulb to get it out of there too. It has a rubber gasket so it might take a little tugging to get it free. - orient the new bulb the same way as the old one, and push it into the headlight unit. It should slide right in and feel snug. - snap the wire clip back into place, then put the plug back on. - go test your lights - both regular and high-beam. - if all is well, but the reservoir tank back and you're done! Hope this helps!

First you must start by removing the entire ignition, itself, on the Nissan 200SX. It should be fairly easy, you will just need the correct tools. Once you have bought the new ignition switch, attach it to the ignition and then re-install the ignition into the Nissan 200SX.

In order to replace a rack and pinion on a Nissan 200SX, you will need to remove the front wheels, the steering coupler, the power steering lines, and various bolts. You will then be able to remove the rack and pinion. Place the new rack and pinion in place, and return the various parts.

I just replaced the starter on my 1998 200sx SE-R. You have to remove the intake manifold, and you will see it right under/behind there. You may as well replace the knock sensor while you are in there. About a 2 hour job altogether.

drop the gas tank...pull the fuel mod out and replace the pump

mine is a 2.0L and starter is under the intake manifold....hope that helps
