Question about 2003 Mazda Mazda6
How do I change the headlight on the passenger side of car
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Raise the car on jack stands, and remove the front wheel (passenger side) .
3. Remove the screws on the bottom of the wheel well. (This is under the front bumper, four screws).
4. Remove some lowest plastic clips in the wheel well. (Thats about six total). These clips strip EXTREMELY easily.
5. Remove or bend back the wheel well. There is enough place for your hand.
6. Remove the lamp covers for the low beams. Disconnect and remove bulb from the housing.
7. Don't touch the lamp glass.

Take off the coolant reservoir you should have enough room to take off the cap from the back of the headlight assembly and reach the headlight

Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Sometimes there is an access panel on top. Open it and reach down inside and grab the bulb’s socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn counter clockwise, and pull out the socket. Grab the bulb, and pull it straight out. To replace the new bulb, never touch it with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, if it even work's at all. Use a tissue or something else in that order to handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the socket, put the socket back into the housing, and twist a quarter turn clockwise to secure the socket into the fix.Seems that you have to remove the coolant bottle(two screws), and also the unscrew the washer fluid bottle, after that you can reach the socket that holds the bulb. There is a wire that holds the bulb in. if you loosen the screw you can tip up the wire and be careful to leave it in place...also the long side of the wire seems to connect to ground wire for the light...

If you visit many forums for Elantras, you will see that frequent headlamp failure is very common. It has been discussed over and over again and it is thought that always turning the lights off and on via the stalk switch is recommended. If you leave the light switch in the on position, when you start your car, the lights briefly flash on then off again as you turn your ignition to the start position and then turn on again as you release the key to return to the "on" position. This may be causing a power surge which creates stress on the bulb filament and can only be avoided by using the light switch instead of the ignition to power up the headlamps.
