One more thing about dash light.This is tricky to put in.Has to be sodered and is easy to wreck things if not done carefully.

Do you have a direct link to Canadien Nissan?

EDIT: It appears Canada is a different country. I had to contact a Canadian dealer directly to inquire if they have the part and if they would be willing to ship to the US. Will keep you posted.

Make sure you get it oriented right before soldering it in. You can check for orientation using a multimeter. Put the meter on a higher ohms scale and apply the leads to the LED. If it doesn't light at all, swap the leads, it should light up. That will tell you were the negative side of the LED is located. Match it up with the circuit board and solder it in place. A little liquid flux will make the job easier. Oh, and a rosin core flux, NOT ACID CORE.....


BTW... Negative side will go on the left side of that board. The arrow on a LED/diode points to the negative side.

Just received a quote from a dealer in Ottawa: $493.23 CAD / $373 USD. Part on back order. Going to call a few others.

Update received the stock from Canada. Waiting on replacement torx bolts and steering wheel but before I start.

Need to pick up some 10 A fuses.

It should be a push down on the square piece of gray plastic sticking up in the clear and pulling the gray connector towards the end that would have pins (big end). It usually takes a little bit to compress the tab.

Definitely more work, but I agree, a better product. To recap for anyone that lands here in the future:

Materials Needed:
- 1 New left-hand Canadian stalk (PN: 25560-1ea1e)
- 2 New Torx bolts (not completely necessary unless you strip them, but called for in the service manual; PN: 878508990A; you will need a tamper proof T30 torx bit - I found a set at AutoZone)
- 1 New steering wheel nut (not completely necessary, but called for in the service manual; PN: 878508990A)
- 2 Low-profile 10 amp fuses (be sure they are the low-profile! I found them at Wal-Mart, of all places)
- 1 New rear fog light of your choice with bulb (can be found at Z1 here: https://www.z1motorsports.com/aero-a...ht-p-3817.html)
- 1 New rear T20 LED bulb (optional, but I wanted the light to be really bright! You can purchase one here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

Steps for Install:
1. Remove the 2 torx bolts holding in the driver-side airbag
2. Remove the steering wheel nut and the steering wheel (I had to use my impact on this)
3. Remove the lower steering wheel cover (3 screws)
4. Unbolt the combination meter (e.g. speedo, tech, etc.) (4 bolts and a clip holding the wires)
5. Remove two screws holding in the top portion of the spiral cable (don't remove spiral cable!)
6. Remove the stalk (1 harness connector and then pull up)
7. Install new stalk and then reverse order to put everything back
8. Remove and install rear fog light (you'll notice about if you are wanting to use the factory harness connector holder on the rear fog bracket, its very difficult to get off. I had to dremel it off very carefully)
9. Install the fuses in the interior fuse box on the driver side (put the two 10 A fuses in the empty slots available)
10. Test the light out and enjoy!
