To all my first generation frontier owners. Do anyone of you know where are bolts located for the taillights? I'm thinking of swapping the stock taillights for the altezza taillights. Thanks again.

Let the tailgate down and look along the edge next to the light. Should be 2 bolts. The other side pops into clips.

I did that and there is no two bolts near the light. I know 2nd gen. frontiers are like that.

Try the backside from in the bed. I remember changing out one on my son's 03 KC. When he gets home, I will look.

With the tailgate up, you can see them just beside the edge of the tailgate.
I took this pic with the tailgate down.

These are the ones holding the tail light in.
I see. But that damn bedliner is pain the butt to put it back its original spot once i changed my taillights. I was thinking of using a hairdryer to soften the plastic in order to put it back in its place.

The a drop in bedliner may flex enough to get a wrench on the bolts. A spray on will be a little more trouble.

I just want to know if anyone of you know whether or not auto parts stores such as autozone, napa, o'reily's etc would sell those altezza taillights for my 04 frontier?

I found the bolts. I just want to know what kind of tool did you used to get the bolt out?
