You can't change the bulb on a Tekna - it's LED.

I assume you're out of warranty? And bought the car privately?

An LED headlight will be very expensive! Especially at Nissan. Best get a mechanic to look it over first?

Used headlights on eBay are going for £35 upwards but be careful - all the low priced ones appear possibly to be defective and a lot have broken lugs. I also suspect that although coming up on an LED search they're actually halogen with LED DRLs.

The cheapest I could find that was full LED was £129.99 with only one lug broken. Next cheapest was £158.95 again with a broken lug

Check the part number on yours - the ones on eBay seem to be 10018014 and 10018016

Interestingly when I put that into eBay a lot of the cheap ones came up. Perhaps this is highlighting another Nissan problem that to date appears not to have been recognised - LED headlight failures?
