Hi there,

You need to remove the mirror glass from the mirror motor.

This is tricky thing to do, and most will break the glass if not done correctly.

The indicator lamp is screwed into the back of the mirror head, the screws are accessible once the glass is out.

If you aren't confident, I would recommend Mazda replaces the indicator for you.

The labour would be cheaper than a broken mirror glass.

Hope this helps.

HiThe whole front of the mirror casing clips off. Wrap a screwdriver with some cloth and slowly pry off. the two main clips holding it on are in the middle, the the indicator just clips out.

Here is a better picture. The silver part clips off.

Sorry for confusion, I was thinking of a different model.

Yes, if you are careful with a small flatblade screwdriver and cloth etc, the trim comes off, then the indicator assembly is accessible.

Assembly is easier.

Thanks for the pictures.

Kind regards

Gary
