My reverse lights are not working. Think they are blown bulbs (at least I hope that is the problem). But since the lights have not been working I have noticed that the reverse cameras don't automatically come on when I put the car in reverse. Is there a connection between the two why this happens? Also the manual states that the bulbs should be changed by the Nissan dealers. Is this manditory? Dealers normally are much more expensive than a regular mechanic. Would I be able to change the bulbs by myself? I consider myself a competent DIYer.

My car is a 2012 Qashqai N-Tec Plus dci 1500cc diesel

The only connection I can think of involving reversing lights and rear camera is the reversing switch. If this is faulty then neither lamps or camera would work. It could be a wiring issue or a plug and socket in the reversing switch circuit. But my first look would be the switch. It could be the switch itself or the actuation of the switch.
Where the switch is located I do not know but I would guess either on the gearbox or linkage from the gear stick to the gearbox.
