Armada License Plate Light
Notch At Rear of Housing
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Nissan Armada in changing a burnt out license plate light bulb.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Cube, Sentra, Altima, LEAF, Maxima, 370Z, Juke, Rogue, Murano, Xterra, Pathfinder, Quest, Frontier, Titan, QX56, Q50, G37, EX37, QX60, FX37, FX50 and QX80 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement license plate light bulb is part number 2825 from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko, Philips and PIAA.

You may also use any other miniature wedge base bulb such as the # 168, W5W, 194 or a brighter LED bulb.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the light housing from the bumper.

Gently Pry Out At Rear
Remove Light Housing
The first two steps are to move to the side of the bumper with the burnt out license plate light bulb and locate the small notch at the rear edge of the housing.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch and gently pry out the light housing.

Light Grey Bulb Socket
1/4 Turn Counter Clockwise
Pull the light housing out of the bumper and turn it over.

Rotate the base of the light grey light bulb socket 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

Remove Bulb Socket
Pull Out Old Light Bulb


Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket.
Push In New # 2825 Bulb
Re-Insert Bulb Socket
Push in a new number 2825 bulb.

You may also use any other miniature wedge base bulb such as the # 168, 194, W5W or a brighter LED unit.

1/4 Turn Clockwise
Re-Install Bulb Housing
Re-insert the light bulb socket in to the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

(If you have a broken license plate light bulb housing, I've read that the Dorman Help! 68155 is a good replacement part.)

Snap Housing In To Place
Test New License Plate Bulb
Gently pop the light bulb housing back in to the bumper.

Test the new license plate light bulbs by turning on the headlights.
