Question about 2006 Mazda 3
Dont know how to do it.Do i have to unscrew and pull the headlight itself?
No, don't remove head light. Pop the hood and pull the rubber grommet from the back of the headlight. there should be a harness attached to the back side of the bulb and if you feel around you should feel a small aluminum ring/clip that goes around back of harness plug. this clip pulls out and up. If your facing the hood the release for this clip should be on the right side of the harness. Next, disconnect the harness from the plug ( easier to do with small flat head screw driver). Then slighty twist and pull out light bulb assembly. It should come out with a plug on the end which might confuse you at first when comparing it to your replacement bulb which is a H7. This bottom piece which is black needs to be disconnected from actual bulb itself. You can gently pry the two apart with a small flat head screw driver. What ever you do don't touch the new replacement bulb with your fingers or get dirt or oil on the bulb. It's a halogen bulb and any oily substance especially human sweat and contact with hands will cause the bulb to actually cook and burn out over time when light is on. To install just do the same in reverse. Don't be a cheapscape, buy the $1.00 contact grease they sell you at the auto parts store. Apply this to the pins of the bulb and the socket it sits in.
