LED DRL replacement

So I bought these leds but I'm not sure how to change them with the current bulb.

http://www.thespeedline.us/servlet/t...-30-SMD/Detail

I took out the stock bulb and it looks like you can take the actual bulb off the base but I'm not sure how to do it without breaking something.

Has anyone done this? I've searched but haven't found anything

Re: LED DRL replacement

You just take hold of the bulb, wiggle back and forth, and pull. I've replaced mine with some WLED-xHP9-T Wedge Base Bulbs from superbrightleds.com.

Well... tried that... broke the bulb... looked inside and there's 2 prongs inside the base... Looks like those LED's don't work with H8 Bulbs No I have to special order the original bulb from mazda because no one carries H8

Re: LED DRL replacement

is that just a new bulb that replaces the current high beam bulb? or is there something entirely different being installed there?

Re: LED DRL replacement

Sorry to bring back an old topic, but for those searching, the bulb type on the 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 in the DRL position is an H8 (LL), and not a T10 Wedge as this topic implies. Hmmm - that means I can HID my DRL! HAH!

Re: LED DRL replacement

I was looking at exactly this.
With shipping these bulbs add up to 30 bucks for me...
Did OP figure out if it works?
I have a 2010 MZ3
