Hatchback Cargo Light
Pry Out Light Housing
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 Nissan Versa hatchback in replacing a burnt out cargo area light bulb.

Owners of other related vehicles such as the Nissan Tiida, Latio, Cube, Leaf, 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 cargo area light bulb is part # DE3022 from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko, and Putco.

You can also use a brighter DE3022 LED bulb.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver. Insert the blade of the screwdriver in to the rear (left) edge of the housing and gently pry it out.

Remove Power Connector
Pop Off Bulb Cover
Press the release tab on the power connector and pull it straight off the cargo area light bulb housing.

Gently pop off the light grey bulb cover on the rear of the housing.

Press On Metal Tab
Old DE3022 Bulb
Press outward on the metal tab to dislodge the old bulb from the socket.


Trunk/Cargo Bulb Housing
Push In New DE 3022 Bulb
Push a new # DE3022 light bulb into the socket until it snaps in place.

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

New Bulb Installed
Snap On Bulb Cover
Line up the light grey bulb cover over the rear of the housing and snap it in place.
Re-Attach Power Connector
Re-Insert Power Housing
Push the power plug back on to the light bulb housing.

First insert the power connector back into the cargo area plastic panel and then snap the other side of the housing back in place.
