    Low Beam Burned Out.

    SEARCHED... But can't find DIY for replacing low beam/DRL headlight.
    Book says it's a dealer job.
    Looked under the hood and there seems to be no room to reach the headlight housing.

    SOMETHING I CAN HELP WITH!!

    theres 4 caps on the back of all your lights you can just stick your hand back there (yes its a very tight fit but you can do it) and the cap is the one behind the low beam.
    just take the old bulb out swap in a new one hook it up and your good to go.

    Thank's, It's similar to my '96 Benz but with even less room to get your hand in there.

    I might have to find some limp wristed guy with little girly hands to help me.

    patience is key here. Behind the low beam bulb is a plastic cap. I think its like a 1/8 turn and then you can pull the cap out. then the bulb is held in w/ a normal spring clip. The book will always say its a dealer job. But you can do it at home (unless your hands are ungodly huge)

    Stopped raining yesterday so I got my bulb changed, This really helped to get my big "manhand" through the small opening.

    dude you're going to hate this. on the new Mazda 6, the only way to do a headlight swap is by A. taking the entire front fascia of the car off which only a dealer can really do and will gladly charge you for. or B. you can jack up the car, take off the tire, and remove as many of the clips holding the wheel well plastic in so that you can do it from behind. i did it this way a couple of times, pain in the you know what, but its that or pay hour and a half labor for a lightbulb. dealer says mine's ok, but it burns out like every six months on the same side. killin me smalls
