On my Mazda I did the following:
- Pulled off the electrical connector socket from the back of the headlight housing.
- Pried off the rubber boot on the back side of the headlamp assembly.
- Removed the wire bracket surrounding bulb by removing the screw that held it in place, although it may be possible to remove the bulb without removing the bracket.
- Extract the bulb from the headlight assembly.

Reassembly was just the revrese of the above steps.

If the lens covers are yellow or discolored you would have to remove the lens and they have chemical at autozone or napa that can take care of this problem but to replace the bulb you open the hood and put your hand in behind the headlight assembly and there is a plug you normally turn counter clockwise and the bulb comes out always wipe the bulb off if you touch it with your hand because the sweat from your hand will cut the life of the bulbs

Check your fuses. There is sometimes a separate file for each headlight. One may be about to go out and need replaced.

How to remove headlight cover to replace bulb. My granddaughter recently purchased a 1999 Mazda 626 We do not know how to remove the outer glass to replace the bulb.


lift up hood First, remove the two bolts that hold the intake in place. Then move the intake off to the side. Then you have to pull back the rubber hood from the light. After that you use a pair of pliers to unhook a clip that holds the bulb in the mount. 1998-2002, for the right side you have to, remove the coolant reservoir with a phillips head screwdriver. be carefull when handling the bulb, hold it by the base. if oil gets on bulb it will shorten its life. do not touch glass with hands. good-day !

The headlight passanger side is dimmed i had replace lighgt bulb and plug what am i doin wrong?does that metal wire piece works as a ground?


Yes it does, if you hook that back up you should be back to having a nice bright light. That is one of the first things that I check before replacing a headlight is making sure the ground is still installed.

If your car and headlights are off then you will not get a shock. You have to unplug the bulb to replace it anyway so there is no way for you to get shocked.

You have a bad ground, look out by the battery for a bunch of black wires screwed to the body of the car, check that they have a clean and tight connection, scrap off any paint under the wires.

Headlights won't work on 97 Mazda 626


If both headlight's just suddenly went out then i would check the fuse. The lid on the fuse box will have the number of the fuse you would need to check.
