2006 Headlamp Bulb Installation

The owners manual has no instruction other than to take the vehicle into Nissan to replace the headlights, does anyone have first hand experience on the best way to replace them on a 2006 Armada??

Also, has anyone installed the Sylvania Ultra Silver Stars and how do you like them??

Thank You.

Welcome to the Club!!!!!

STOCKMADA92101 literally swears by them:

I had installed them on my wife's Murano over a year ago and I do like them much better than OEM bulbs but they're not quite as good as HID's.

To install them on the Armada, you have to remove the entire Headlight assembly to replace the bulbs.

Instructions should be on page 30 of the "Service Manual - Lighting System 2006 Nissan Armada" found here:

Note: You'll need to register before you can download the Manuals and you can only download one at a time. I haven't figured out the timeout before you can download a second manual yet, but I did get a second manual the following day last time.

You don't have to remove the headlight assembly to change the bulb. Undo a couple of screws inside the front wheelwell to get behind the plastic liner, and you can easily reach the bulb. Look in the "How-To" section of this site for a sticky post with more detail on this.

Perfect and easy. High bulbs were accessible from under the hood as well.
