2014 Juke Cargo Area Light
Pry Out Light Housing
Light Housing Removed
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Nissan Juke in changing a burnt out cargo area or "trunk" light bulb.

Owners of other Nissan vehicles such as the Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Cube, Leaf, Pathfinder, 370Z, Rogue, Xterra, Murano, Armada, Quest, Frontier and Titan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement festoon or "fuse" style light bulb is part number DE3022 which has a length of 29mm.

You may also be able to use the slightly longer # DE3175 (31mm), 6418 (35mm), 6411 (41mm) or an LED unit.

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

Press Release Tab
Disconnect Power Plug
Pull Off Plastic Cover
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may want to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch at the bottom edge of the light housing.

Gently pry out the bottom edge and remove the housing from the plastic cargo area panel.

Pull the light grey plastic cover off the rear of the housing to expose the bulb socket.

Pull Out Old Bulb
Insert New # DE3022 Bulb
New Bulb Installed
If the old bulb was recently illuminated, be careful since it might still be hot enough to burn your skin.

Carefully pull the old bulb out of the socket.

Insert a new # DE3022 bulb in to the socket. You can also use a brighter LED unit.

If you install a larger DE3175 (31mm), 6418 (35mm), 6423 (36mm) or 6411 (41mm) bulb, you may need to bend back the metal electrical contact.


Push On Plastic Cover
Push In Electrical Connector
Re-Insert Wires First
Push the grey plastic cover back in to place on the rear of the housing.

Push the white plastic power plug in to the socket on the end of the light housing.

Re-insert the wires and power plug on the housing in to the cargo area panel first.

Pop In Light Housing
Light Housing Replaced
Test New Cargo Area Bulb
Gently pop in the other edge of the light housing.

If the new bulb is already turned on, test the new bulb by pressing the "Unlock" button on the key fob or opening the cargo tailgate door.
