If your talking about only changing the bulbs, you have to open the hood and reach behind the headlight. There will be a harness plugged into the back of the headlight. There is a black plastic ring that you must turn to get the bulb to release. Once released, unplg the harness from the bulb and replace bulb. Reverse order for installation.

How many quarts are need for transmission fluid for 1996 Nissan Pathfinder?

I have a Nissan pathfinder 1998 it is almost the same as 1996, the mechanic flushed the transmission out and filled it with 4 and 3/4 quarts. But if you are only filling without flushing the entire fluid, my advise is to fill slowly and check the level every 1/4 of quart until you reach the level without overfilling.
