Brake lights on a Mazda 2000 MX5

Hi, Does the single screw at the boot rim release the entire lense or is there another attachment. I tried the screw but the lense didn't come away easily and I don't want to force it in case I break it. I'm reluctant to pay a garage €20 to replace a single bulb if I can do it myslef.

    Its the driver side brake light. There's a casing in teh boot that I wary of forcing off as the studs mightn't go back in easily but I think there's a nut holding the light on behind the casing. Thanks

There are also two nuts inside the boot under the carpet which need to be undone. Took me a while to work it out and then I found out Halfords had sold me the wrong bulb. Have to do it all again tomorrow.

1990 mx5 mazda head lamps go up and down on own . with out switches being toutched .

The headlights moving up and down on their own is almost always related to dirty grounds on the circuit - specifically at a multi-pin connector located just under the brake booster. It's a white flat plastic rectangle with about 7 leads running into it and attached with a machine screw into the shelf area below the booster. Water can collect there causing corrosion. The connector can be opened up and the contacts cleaned. There's a good video on cleaning electrical connectors on YouTube

Mazda mx5 abs light

most likely it is just a blown bulb.. and opening up a dash on the newer vehicles is a very tedius job... so unless you have like a full week end and another source of transportation i hate to admit but i would turn it over to a pro to i have to admit it is kinda funny.. turn your car over to a shop... to change a light bulb...most likely a #194 bulb...
