Question about 2007 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring

1 Answer

My driver's side headlight went out. I bought a new bulb, but don't know how to get to the headlight. Is there an easy way, or should I take it to a shop? Also when I start my car, the engine makes a loud clicking sound. What is that?

I actually took mine to the dealer as I got fed up with trying the mud guard option in the manual. I watched the tech go in under the hood to remove what I believe was the air filter box, thus opening up more room next to the headlight. From there it was a matter of removing the rubber cap, unhooking the clip (still tricky) replacing it, and putting it all back together. Be sure to have all the connections nice and tight as they even still tripped my check engine light and had to reset it. Does the clicking sound only happen when you start it, or if you're accelerating and the car downshifts? That most likely would be something you may want a dealer to check out. Hope this helps!

HEADLIGHTS DO NOT WORK, BUT HIGH BEAMS DO AND SO DO TURN SIGNALS AND SIDE MARKERS


The HID requires a ballast, did you do any rewiring? Did you check the fuses? Unplug the relay either hi or low, use jumper wire between terminals 30 and 87, the lamps should work, I'm talking about your regular lamps. If they work with the jumper, then check control side of relay.

2005 Lexus RX330 HID ballast replacement, passenger side headlight. What is the removal procedure please?


I have a 2005 Lexus Rx330 with HID AFS headlight. My passenger side light went out. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. It light up lightly and then total black out. What's wrong with it? I thought the ballast burnt. I called Lexus dealer and asked for the new ballast/transformer. Surprised me, they don't know what is it. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast ??????? Could you tell me what do I need to replace?

Thanks,

One headlight dimmer than the other


you've got a grounding wire issue on the right side headlight.
trace the wire that goes to ground and make sure the connection is clean and tight... check for corrosion around the wire terminals and in the connector...

Try inspecting the wires, socket, and bulb for defects. Try a wiggle test on the wires to that lamp. See if there is any effect. If nothing inspect the socket for hot spots and/or corrosion.

Driver's side Headlight Bulb Replacement


Do you mean the entire headlight assembly or just the bulb?
If it's the entire headlamp look at the new one to see where the fastening points are, the grill may have to be removed and also the parking lamp lens, if it's just the bulb it's easy Open your hood look at the back of the headlight assembly and twist the bulb holder ring to release it.

Passenger side low beam headlight on a 2002 nissan altima


when you got the spark chances are you shorted the receptacle for the bulb on the low side you should check the fuse for this . the drivers side low beam worked before so i would say you blew the fuse. on the passenger side check for broken ,frayed ,or loose wires in the light harness and the plugs them selves chances are you will find a short in them. please rate this solution
