2005 Pathfinder License Plate light and rear hatch window help!

Hi all,

sorry total noob here, this is my first SUV and ive been trying to figure out how to open the rear window with no luck. I tried searching the manual but it seems that i am a total retard that it doesnt even list it in the manual. Can someone tell me how to open the rear window (the one with the wiper) on the hatch door.

And if anyone knows how to change the license plate light on the 05 pathfinder as well. Thank you all so much and sorry for all the noob questions.

I assume the '05 is like my '08. The pull is hidden in the license plate bezel to the right.

I had to go out and take a look as I've never actually looked under there. In the middle is the electric switch for the main hatch. On each side of that is a license plate light. There are phillips screws holding those on so that's probably how you get to the light. To the right of the right-hand light is the release for the glass. There is a place for your fingers to go and you just pull towards you and the glass pops open. Hope that helps.

Grreat, thanks so much for your help, I will check it out first thing tomorrow in daylight. Thanks so much!

I see the screws holding in the lights for the license plate but it is covered by the silver plastic piece on the outside. How would i remove that to gain access to the screws? Thanks

I don't know about the lights as I haven't messed with them. In your other thread, I sent you over to thenissanpath forum. At the top of the 2005+ forum there is a sticky that has a factory service manual for the 2006 model Pathfinders. You may find more info there on replacing that light.

You gotta take off the plastic panel to get at replacing the lights, unless you wanna break the plastic chrome trim. What a stupid design.

Is there a flexable screwdriver invented? I thought there is one.
