2020 Altima Turn Signal
(No Fog Light Equipped)
Underside of Bumper
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the sixth generation 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and the revised or "face lifted" 2023 and 2024 Nissan Altima sedan in changing a burnt out front turn signal light bulb in the front bumper cover located down below the headlight housing. (If your Altima is equipped with fog lights, this is the same procedure for changing those bulbs.)

Owners of other Nissan, Infiniti or related Renault vehicles such as the Rogue, X-Trail, Note, Versa, Rogue Sport / Qashqai, Maxima, Sentra, Juke, Kicks, Murano, Pathfinder, Armada, Frontier, Titan, Quest, NV200, Q50, Q60, QX50, QX60 and QX80 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement front turn signal light bulb part number is 7444NA.

If you'd like to have brighter front turn signals which will last longer before burning out like the traditional incandescent light bulbs, install some 7444NA LED units.

The tools needed to access and replace the front turn signal light bulbs include a 10mm socket and a 1/4" drive ratchet from any standard socket set.

Move to the underside of the of the front bumper cover below the front turn signal housing.
