Nissan Qashqai: Which variant is the best?

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Jul 2018

On the face of it the top-of-the-line Ti model is obviously the best, as it comes with the biggest amount of standard equipment. However, the Ti might not be the best Qashqai if you're shopping with less than $38,000 in your account, so the base model ST represents a good way into a new, modern car for just $29,000.

Nissan Qashqai 2018: How to change the headlight bulb?

Answered by CarsGuide 29 May 2018

For models with later models you pop the bonnet, then turn the cover on the back of the headlight a quarter-turn anti-clockwise. Put on gloves, then pull the headlight and wiring out. Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the H7 globe from the plug and mounting ring. Place mounting ring on new headlight bulb, push until it clicks, then refit. Older models are simpler. Pop the bonnet then pull the wiring plug away from the back of the headlight. Spin the cover anti-clockwise and then pull the H7 Halogen globe out with the cover. Do not touch the globe with your bare hands as it will shorten the lifespan of the new globe. Because of this, and the tight confines of the work space you should wear gloves when doing this job.
