Sorry to hear about the ticket! Now, as you may already know, changing the headlight bulb on a Nissan 350Z takes a bit of effort, but it’s a doable DIY project.
Refer to this guide below, which outlines the steps, but you should consult your owner’s manual as well, particularly if this is the first time you’re changing a bulb on your 350Z.
  • Secure your car and then jack it up.
  • Remove the front wheel and the wheel liner clips.
  • Lift back the lining in the wheel well.
  • Remove the white cap, pull back on the wire harness, and push the bulb spring clip to release it.
  • Remove the old bulb and replace it with the new bulb. Note: be sure the bulb spring is actually holding the new bulb in place securely.
  • Check your headlights to make sure they work before replacing the wheels!
While getting a ticket is never fun, at least now you will have learned to change the lightbulbs in your 350Z!
