This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 3rd generation 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014 Nissan Cube in replacing a burnt out overhead dome light bulb.

Owners of earlier 1998-2002 or 2002-2008 Nissan Cube vehicles or other Nissan models with similar key fobs such as the Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Juke, Rogue and Murano may also find this guide to be helpful.

A replacement bulb for the overhead dome light of a Nissan Cube is part number DE3175 from Sylvania, GE, Phillips and other manufacturers.

You can also use a brighter DE3175 LED bulb.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver.

Insert the blade of the flathead screwdriver in between the clear dome light bulb cover and the light grey plastic housing. Gently pry out the clear plastic cover.

Release Old # DE3175 Bulb
Be careful when you remove the old light bulb.

If it was recently turned on, it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Once the clear plastic dome light cover has been removed, release the old light bulb by pushing on the metal contact spring or pop it out with a small screwdriver.

Push In New # DE3175 Bulb
Push Button - Test Bulb
Push in a new # DE 3175 light bulb until it snaps into place.

If you are installing an LED bulb and it doesn't work at first, try flipping it around in the socket.

Double check that it is secure before sliding the light switch to test the new bulb.
