Rear right tailgate light replacement

Post by steve9617 » Mon Feb 15, 2021 9:49 am

Hi all

My J11 has a cracked rear right tailgate light. I have the replacement however the broken one has a bulb and wiring where the new one has no hole drilled in the aluminium.

The fitting for the grey connector is there but the actual hole for the bulb hasn't been drilled.

Is this normal?

Thanks

Steve

Welcome to this forum.

Haven't a clue to be honest but it sounds odd. I can't remember the exact arrangement of what lights are in there, but have you got a RHD car and a LHD replacement light?

Steve, welcome to the QQ Forum ! Let me throw a “Spanner in the Works”, could it be that you have the Older QQ J11A Model which has 21w (*12) & 16w (*13) Bulbs whereas our Manual for the J11B states (*12) LED & 16w (13*). This is just an assumption at present so double check it and take a look it might be the reason but not so sure - Dave 😉

This information is for the J11A as my J11B data is in German :

Thanks for the suggestions all.

I think the rhd/LHD issue is likely as the part ended up coming from Germany.

Mine is a 2016 model so unsure if J11a or b unfortunately. Will try and make sure I get a rhd one first then go from there.

Thanks

I didn't notice any difference between the RH and LH tail lights when I took them off so RHD or LHD car shouldn't make a difference.
However, there is a difference between connectors when mounting a J11a taillight to a J11b car and vice versa.

This is a comparison of two different Nissan numbered parts - Dave 😏

Technically you have a J11 - the later models are the J11B. I don't think technically there was a J11A but that's what the J11 is sometimes referred to as.

Only one side has a reversing light? Can't test because I don't have mine any longer. Reversing light can be either side - foglight has to be on driver's side
