2014 Juke License Plate Lights
Left License Plate Light
Pry Out Light Bulb Housing
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & the revised 2015, 2016) Nissan Juke in changing a burnt out license plate light bulb in the tailgate door.

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 license plate light bulb is part number 2825 which is available from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

You may also be able to use any other miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 158, 168, W5W, 194 or a compatible LED unit.

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

Light Housing Removed
White Plastic Bulb Socket
1/4 Turn Counterclockwise
Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the side edge of the license plate light bulb housing and the tailgate.

Gently pry out the light bulb housing. If you have trouble removing the housing, try prying on the opposite edge.

Do not use excessive force, the bulb housing should pop out relatively easily.

Pull the bulb housing out of the tailgate.

Rotate the white plastic bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise and pull it out of the housing.

Bulb Socket Removed
Pull Out Old Light Bulb
Old # 2825 / W5W Bulb
Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket.


Push In New Bulb
1/4 Turn Clockwise - Lock
Re-Insert Light Housing
Push a new # 2825 bulb straight in to the socket.

You may also be able to use any other miniature wedge base bulb such as the # 158, 168, W5W, 194 or a brighter LED unit.

Re-insert the bulb socket in to the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

Re-insert the wires first and then push in the light bulb housing.

Pop In Retaining Clip
Light Housing Replaced
Test New License Light Bulb
Gently pop in the retaining clip on the other side of the bulb housing.

Test the new license plate light bulb by turning on the headlights or pressing the "Unlock" button on the key fob.
