The 2014+ ones definitely won't fit because they changed the reflector on the hatch starting 2017. It's slimmer than the more square design from 2014-2016. I remember checking the part# on a Mazda5 reflector and I remember they are also the same as the Mazda3 hatch 2017+. If you're not sure, go to a Mazda dealership and ask to match the part # on the 2018 hatch vs. Mazda6/Mazda5.

I replaced mine with smoked LED ones for my '14 sedan. Had them installed since '16.

Has anyone replaced their rear reflectors with LEDs? I did for my 2012, but I can't seem to find ones that fit the 2018 hatches. I might risk it and go with the Mazda 6 ones because they look like they may fit.

These say for 2014+ but they dont look like the ones on my 2018.

Thanks!
I used these but had to install a resistor when I added the front: [ame]https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071VTS4WS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1[/ame]

These are great for reverse: [ame]https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EHICF4O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1[/ame]
The reverse and licence lights I use are both white to match the front LEDs: [ame]https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IGQS2SC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1[/ame]

They look super nice! Where did you get them?!
Thank you! I tried finding them but doesn't look like they are around anymore. They have different ones out there now. I got them on eBay from The Speed Shop.

I haven't seen anything like this before. How are they installed?

You take your bumper off and then unscrew the old reflectors, then you screw the LED ones in their place and run the wires up to the brake light harness. Put your bumper back on and then you tap the wires into the brake light and you're done.

Took me like 45 minutes on my 2012 Mazda3.

Apologies for bringing up such an old thread, but did you end up having any luck with your rear reflectors??? Looking for some myself and really don’t want to waste money on ones that do not fit.
Thanks heaps!!!! :)

I have had mine installed on my '14 since 2016 (bought them in 2015).

Thanks guys, they look so awesome!!! I just can’t seem to find any that say they’re suitable for a BN model hatch.
I might measure them tomorrow and compare to see if they’re the same as some other models.
