Steps to replace headlights

Steps to replace Mazda headlights
  • Ensure that your car engine is off and that the headlight control switch is set to “Off.” Some manuals will instruct you to disconnect the battery before changing your car headlights, but this isn’t necessary unless you’re maybe careless.
  • The bonnet latch should be released. Open the bonnet and locate the headlight assembly. Two black plastic dome covers with the words “Top,” “Open,” and “Close” stamped on them are visible. Turn the cover until it separates from the headlight assembly in the direction of the word “Open.” Remove the cover and set it aside.
  • Place a small mirror near the opening of the headlight assembly to improve your vision. You will see the wires plugged into the headlight blades, as well as the wire retaining clip that keeps the headlight inside the assembly. Disconnect these wire connections from the headlight blades.
  • The is a screw located on one side of the wire retaining clip and the release tab of the clip is located on the opposite side of the screw, which also serves as a hinge for the clip. Push the tab inward and then back away from the locking notch. The clip will open, allowing you to remove the headlight assembly apart.
  • Take note of the location of the headlight base’s flat edge. Except for one spot, the base is round. The replacement headlight must be installed in the same spot as the bad one.
  • Wear latex gloves to handle the new headlight. Oils on your hands will cause weak spots in this high-intensity headlight bulb, causing it to burn out sooner than expected.
  • With the flat part of the base facing upward, insert the headlight into the assembly. Pull the wire spring clip into place and then force it inward and toward the locking notch until it locks properly. 
  • Connect the wire harness to the replacement headlight’s blades and test it by turning on the lights. Check the black cover’s gasket to see if it’s correctly seated. Insert the cover and turn it toward the word “Close” first before the word “Top” appears on the top.


When driving at night, your Mazda’s headlights are built to make it easy to see and be seen. You will need to change your headlights or better still, restore them using headlight restoration kits if you find that your lights are becoming dim. Wide-range low beams, which are mounted on the side of Mazda headlights, illuminate a larger area than conventional low beams. These new low beams, which can travel up to 40 km/h, improve visibility at night, particularly while driving through intersections.
