Nissan Versa Dome Light
Pry Out Lens Cover
Insert Screwdriver Blade
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 Nissan Versa hatchback or sedan in replacing a burnt out overhead dome light bulb in the passenger cabin.

Owners of other related vehicles such as the Nissan Tiida, Latio, Cube, Leaf, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Rogue, Murano, Xterra, Note, Micra, Wingroad, Grand Livina, Pulsar, Sunny, Almera, Aprio, Platina, Dodge Trazo, Dacia Logan, Sandero, Renault Clio, Modus, Twingo and the Nissan Grand Livina may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement dome light bulb is part # DE3175 from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko, and Putco.

You can also use a brighter DE3175 LED bulb.

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

Use the screwdriver to gently pry out the translucent lens cover.

Lens Cover Removed
Dome Light Bulb Exposed
Press Metal Release Tab
Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the lens cover and the dome light housing by the On / Off / Door switch to pop it out.

To remove the old dome light bulb, press outward on the metal electrical contact until the bulb drops out.

Old # DE 3175 Bulb
Dome Light Bulb Socket
Push In New DE3175 Bulb
Install the new # DE3175 light bulb by first inserting the left (driver) side of the bulb into the socket and then push the right (passenger) side in until the metal retaining tab snaps in place.

If you are installing an LED bulb and it doesn't work at first, it might be polarized. Try flipping it around 180 degrees in the socket.


New Bulb In Socket
Flip Switch - Test New Bulb
Re-Insert Lens Cover
Test the new light bulb by sliding the switch to the "On" position.

Re-insert the left (driver) side of the lens cover in first and then gently snap the other side in place.

Once the lens cover has been re-installed, slide the switch over to the "Door" position so that the dome light will illuminate whenever a passenger door has been opened.
