SPEC-D® Altezza Tail Lights - 07-10 Nissan Versa Hatchback
Finally, there is a new real competitor in the aftermarket Nissan Versa Altezza Tail Lights scene. SPEC-D (aka JY Lighting) has always had a formidable selection of applications, as well as cutting edge features, but they lacked the US presence needed to be a true competitor. Now, with a dedicated US importer, they now have the backbone and infrastructure to compete against KS and Sonar's tail lamps under their new company, SPEC-D Lighting.
Like KS taillights, these SPEC-D Nissan Versa Altezza Tail Lights (aka JY Nissan Versa Altezza Tail Lights) are made to US Federal Motor Vehicle Standards and are DOT Compliant, assuring you that they are not only a quality product, but a street legal one as well. Also, these SPEC-D Nissan Versa Chrome Altezza Taillights backed by a full 1 year warranty against manufacturer defects, meaning that they are guaranteed to perform as long (if not longer) than the competition.
These Nissan Versa tail lamps are the Chrome color of SPEC-D's Altezza Tail Lights, also known as Euro style tails, designed to specifically fit your Nissan Versa. They replace both Versa OE tails without any extra modification or changes. They are made to fit your stock harnesses and come with all necessary components for installation. No extra parts required. Best of all, these Chrome SPEC-D Versa Altezza Tail Lens give your Nissan a custom look without having to modify your electrical system the way LED taillights (and their lower wattages) do.
- 1 Year warranty
- Full set - driver and passenger side included
- Easy to install??no modifications necessary
Tools generally needed to install Nissan Versa Tail Lights
- Socket wrench set or Phillips screw driver
- Painters tape to prevent scratches to your Nissan Versa
- (Rare) Torque wrenches, etc.
- Inspect the new set of Nissan Versa tail lights to make sure you can complete the installation with the tools you have available.
- Disconnect your Nissan Versa battery's negative battery terminal. If your stereo requires a key in order to reboot, please be sure you have it before disconnecting the battery. Also, be aware that you will probably have to reset your clocks, etc. after reconnecting the battery later. Please note that some vehicles (such as newer GMs) have extremely sensitive electrical systems. In these cases failure to disconnect the battery before attempting installation may lead to blown taillamp fuses or other damage.
- Apply painters tape on your Nissan Versa around the edges of your Versa's taillights to prevent any scratches that might occur while removing and installing taillamps. If uninstalling your Nissan Versa rear bumper is required, make sure you have a safe surface to place the Versa bumper on and that the working surface below the vehicle is also safe in the event the bumper falls down. This step is particularly important because tail lens, unlike headlights, often require a little force to come loose, leaving many people to inadvertently scratch their Nissan Versa in the process.
- Without touching the glass, uninstall the stock brake, signal and reverse bulbs (as applicable). For bulbs with flat rectangle harnesses, you just pull the bulb firmly outward. For bulbs with round bases, you usually just push them in a bit, and then turn a quarter turn to release them. Once the bulb is removed, place them in their original container (if available). If they are cold, you could also store them in a ziplock type of bag. Please note that if your Nissan Versa tail lamps have a harness that can be separated via a main harness that leaves part of the harness with the bulbs inside the Versa tail lights, you will still need both parts of the harness since the aftermarket Nissan Versa tail lights are designed to either re-use the stock bulbs (altezzas) or to connect directly into the bulb harnesses (LED taillights).
- Unscrew the Nissan Versa taillamps from the front or use a socket wrench to undo the Versa tail lamps from the back. Be aware that the old Nissan Versa tail lights might fall immediately once the tension of the bolts is removed. For this reason, it is best to lightly hold the lights in place with your free hand as you unbolt or unscrew them.
- Remove the old Nissan Versa taillens and store in a way that the lens will not be scratched. Install the new Nissan Versa tail lens and bolt / screw in place.
- Nissan Versa Altezza Tail Lights: Reinstall the old bulbs into the new Versa taillights. Be aware some Versa tail lights might make use of a conversion harness that connects into one of your stock harnesses and splits the function into two separate bulbs. In these cases, the new bulbs should be included.
- Reconnect your Nissan Versa battery and turn on your Nissan Versa taillamps and check for proper operation and blinking speed. If any functions are not operational, try flipping the plugs the reverse orientation and double checking that the resistor boxes are fully connected.
- Reconnect all connections and tighten all bolts in place.
Are these Nissan Versa tail lights sold by piece or as a pair?
All our Nissan taillights are sold in the full pair. When you pay the listed price, you receive the complete set including both the right and the left sides.
As far as we know the Sonar (aka Spyder) and KS (Anzo) brand tail lights on our website are all street legal as mandated by federal law in the United States. This basically means that they are designed to the specifications set forth by the DOT (United States Department of Transportation). Occasionally, DOT might test models for compliance. If any Nissan Versa taillights fail (rare) DOT will have the companies issue a recall. For those tail lens, you can return them to us for a refund. For any other brands besides Sonar (aka Spyder) and KS (aka Anzo), we can not guarantee DOT compliance. Also, please be advised that your local laws that may disallow these sorts of taillights to be used.
How can I prevent my Nissan Versa tail lights from fogging up?
During the first few days of operation, it is normal to see some moisture appear in your Nissan Versa tail lens. This is due to the small amounts of moisture in the plastic and coating that are evaporated when the tail lens are first warmed up during use. This sort of moisture is normal and should disappear within a few days.
To be sure that no external moisture gets into the new Nissan Versa tail lens though, it is a prudent idea to silicone seal the edges. Clear silicone sealant can be found in any hardware store (and some auto part stores), and can be applied to the seam along the Versa taillights where the clear lens meets the rear housing. Also, even if a bulb has died, make sure to keep it installed in the Versa tail lamp until you replace it to prevent moisture from entering through the bulb hole.
While smoking your Nissan Versa taillights (tinting them) is certainly possible through the use of carefully applied spray tint (use light even coats), doing so may make them too dark to be legal. Please check your local laws as well as smoked Nissan Versa taillights of any darkness might be illegal in your area.
