Open the back lift door. Inside next to the lights there are screws that need to be removed before you can get the whole parking light off. After you get the screws out, you will have to force the whole plastic light cover to get to the burn out light. Once you get the whole light out, replace the bulb and follow the process in reverse.

SOURCE: i have a 2001 Nissan Xterra and the light flicker

It sounds like a loose ground wire, which one, I can't tell you. If its in the dash, there are ground wires connected to the car frame. You probably find it by looking under the drivers dash. It will be a wire connected to the frame by a screw or nut. Just tighten it up, and should solve the problem. also check the power plug to the gauges and make sure its tight. Best I can do.

I have a 2001 nissan xterra - will not engage in reverse gear - any solutions?

Does it seem to bog down when in reverse as you accelerate? If so the trans maybe stuck in forward gear (mechanical problem) resulting in both forward & rev being applied.

I have a 2002 Nissan Xterra and it dies when the bake is applied. Also as the accelerator is pressed, the car hesitates before moving forward.

I had the same problem so I dismantled my engine and found out both my heads were cracked allowing fluid to enter the combustion chamber therefore foreign fluids were gumming up my pistons causing me to lose power up hills and so forth. If you are a good mechanic replace your heads and your problem will be solved.
