This is a real time video on changing a brake light in a 2005 Nissan Altima. I've pointed out some helpful information: -how to release & easily replace the weather stripping/carpet cover -how to remove the cargo net connector -a standard socket won't reach over the bolt, I had to use an adjustable wrench but just to loosen the nut/washer; I then used my hand to remove them -location of plastic posts which stabilize the light casing -identify which bulb is being replaced for a brake light -how to use simple leverage to remove the connector for the electrical -where to use dielectric grease on the new bulb PLEASE NOTE: You really shouldn't touch the bulb with your bare hand. You can use rubber or laytex gloves or a cloth to prevent the oils from your skin touching the bulb. Since these bulbs burn at high temps, the oil will reduce their life.
PANEL CLIPS: Most of the clips *do* have a center popout that will do 2 things: - 1) make it easier to remove. Just put a flathead screwdriver under the center raised circle and pry it up slightly. The locking stem will then be released (aka flattened) so the clip can be removed easily - 2) you won't have to go buy a new one to replace the one you broke cuz you watched this video and saw me just yank it out ;)
If you do break your panel clips, you can buy replacement ones at the hardware store or an autoparts store. Just beware that those replacement clips may NOT have the center stem pop-out feature. I couldn't find pop-out style panel replacement clips at Westlake or Advanced Auto.
