2004 Mazda: the parking light to replace the bulb

This answer was rated:

2004 Mazda RX8...How do you reach the parking light to replace the bulb?

You must access the light from inside the trunk. Peel back the trim to gain access to the nuts then remove the assembly. After the assembly is removed you can change the bulb (see below)

 

If you still need help just reply, if not click ACCEPT when we are done.

 

Thanks,

The side marker light is NOT the problem. I am trying to replace the bulb in the FRONT PASSENGER SIDE PARKING LIGHT receptacle

Hi sportsmana11

 

Are you trying to change the light thats on the outside where the fender and bumber meet or the 1 in the headlamp assy?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
The small inner lamp inside the headlamp assembly....

Ok you will have to remove the front bumber cover. Then removed the headlamp assy to get to the bulbs. Be VERT CAREFUL when changeing the bulb if you touch the headlamp bulb or the headlamp bulb module inside the headlamp assy (IT CAN KILL YOU)))))))))))))))))))).

How do I go about removing the front bumper cover?
You will need to get under the veh there will be some 8mm bolts where in font of the tires that will need to be removed on both sides. also ther will be some bolts in the center that will need to be removed. Then you will need to removed the clips on the inner fenders to the bumber and pull them back there will be a screw on each side behind the innter fender nest to the side lights that will need to be remove also unplug both side lights. Then open the hood and remove the screws on both sides the grill. Next pull both sides the bumber out to unlock them them the bumber should come off.

Won't removing the bumper involve the air bag deployment system in some way?

No the air bag sensors are mounded to the metal part of the veh. If you want to turn off the air bag system. Just disconnect the - battery them wait about 10 minutes before removing the bumper
