How to Install Side Marker Lights on a 350Z

The side marker lights on your Nissan 350Z are part of the combination tail light assembly. The marker light illuminates when you turn on the parking lights of your car. Without the rear marker lights, your car is more difficult to see when you park in low light. If the marker light burns out on your 350Z, you can replace it in minutes at home. Buy a 168 bulb from an auto-parts retailer and replace the bulb in your own driveway.

  1. 1

    Open the boot of your 350Z. Remove the three bolts from the top of the light assembly with a socket and ratchet.

  2. 2

    Pry the light assembly out away from the car with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Pull the light assembly out away from the rear of the car.

  3. 3

    Grasp the bulb socket closest to the outside edge of the 350Z’s light assembly. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise and pull it back out of the light. Pull the bulb out of the socket. Insert a new bulb by pushing it straight into the socket.

  4. 4

    Insert the bulb socket into the assembly and turn it clockwise until it stops. Align the tail light assembly and insert it into the rear of the car. Secure the assembly with the three retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts with a socket and ratchet.

  5. 5

    Repeat the process on the opposite light. Close the boot and test the new marker lights.
