Very simple. remove black plastic cover by the air filter box. -couple of phillips plastic screws. then reach in and turn black plastic round dust cover,counter-clockwise then carefully remove electrical plug (harness) and then with your finger push metal hold down (silver) to unlock the bulb. do not touch new bulb with fingers (will reduce the bulb life) wear gloves.reverse procedure to install.remember the bulb is replaced from under the hood and no other tools are required.

    Those plastic phillips "screws" are the source of the problem for me - they don't come out, just turn and turn, as if they were designed to be popped in once like a fish hook and never removed. I'm trying to replace mine right now, and thinking of just breaking the one closes to the bulb so I can finally bend back the cover and get my hand to the bulb. So annoying. Did you have a similar problem at all? It's just loose in there, not tight like a true threaded screw, it's like it was just not designed to ever be removed.

Did you experience this at all?

One of my turn signals wont work, both my headlights only work on highbeams


replace the high beam switch which causes this problem. Also clean the terminals for the directional light bulb. That will cause a negative continuity to the bulb

How do I change the bulb in the low beam headlight in my 2007 Mazda CX7?


Removing the bulb in a CX7 is a real PITA. If replacing the right bulb, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right, or do the opposite for the left side. (or you can opt to remove the entire wheel on the corresponding side) You'll need to remove 3-4 of the fender well clips with a phillips screwdriver being careful not to break them. Once the screws are removed, pry back the wheel well cover to access the back of the headlamp to change the bulb.

I am trying to replace the low beam bulb on the passenger side of a 2007 Mazda CX7 . Can't seem to figure out how to get to it. Any help?


Open the 2007 CX-7 Owners Manual (here is you don't have one http://www.mazdausa.com/MusaWeb/pdf/manuals/2007CX7OM.pdf)
Go to page 8-35 (P. 331 in the pdf). Close the hood, you're in the wrong place. Remove the cover in the front of the wheel arch to expose the headlight assembly.

The low beam bulb needs to be replaced. Go to an autozone store as they will sell you the bulb, and even assist you in their parking lot with installing it.
