In dire need of a new maplight housing. Due to complications, my existing one no longer performs as initially intended.

Please help!

Re: WTB: Map light housing (preferably non-sunroof)

Beige or gray? OnlineMazdaParts has it:

Beige: http://www.trademotion.com/partloca...7535&callout=1&catalogid=2&displayCatalogid=0

Gray: http://www.trademotion.com/partloca...da 3&year=2007&catalogid=2&displayCatalogid=0

Just in case nobody has a spare to sell you.

Also, you've piqued my curiosity. What did you do to yours?

I need a gray one please :)

I ordered dabears LED kit and it wasn't plug in play for the map lights (I do NOT have a sunroof, so I didn't think I would have an issue) as for all the other LEDs they were fine. I had to shave down the reflective housing to get them to fit. Now on the passenger side, it worked fine but on the drivers side it was intermittent. Pressure was needed to be placed on the flat area behind the center toggle switch. initially I thought that I just needed to shave more off because it didn't make contact, and possibly put something to tighten the seal. I took the whole housing apart, thinking maybe I should paint the boring gray plastic, took the reflective thing apart and shaved it while it was out of the housing. My friend who has had more experience with LEDs helped me to tear it down. Apparently the push-button switch on the drivers-side didn't engage properly (think of a pen that clicks but won't stay depressed)
