Hi all,

my first post on this forum (and a looooooong time since last post on any Mazda forum! :laugh2: ).

I am the owner of a 2015 Mazda 3 Hatch (European German model, was imported to the Netherlands) with standard bulbs which I would like to replace with some bright ones (gotta get me a nice LED/Xenon kit later on).
In the past few years I have been playing with quite a few Mazda's and was always able to change them with little effort. But in this case, I have great difficulties with unplugging the connector.
According to the manual, it should come off by squeezing and pulling it down, but in your experience, how much effort should this cost?
Plus, as far as I have tried now, reaching the left front connector (from cockpit perspective) seems nearly impossible.

Any advice on this? Or information you need from me which might be specific to the local model?

Thanks in advance
TycStyle

Try harder. They should pop right off if you have fully released the lock.
To easily access the left front headlights, remove the 5 pins that secure the fender liner and pull it down. Removing the intake box helps also.
