Hey guys,
Just wondering is it possible to change the LED's out in my 09 MS3 myself or would i really have to take it to a mazda dealership for them to change it? Tried looking for a way to get them out but unlike my other cars theres no visible bulb to pull out like usual/etc...Pretty im just missing something obvious..
Thanks!

Also one more question, I read that the regular hatchback headlights are interchangeable with the MS3 headlights...But every ebay listing i see says "04-09 hatcback lights, excluding mazdaspeed"...are they just putting that because some speeds have HID? If i have halogen i should be fine right?
Like so:

thanks!

If you are replacing the entire Headlight housing you have to remove the bumper and there are 2 bolts and 2 screws on top then headlight slides out...

I thought you were talking about the Tail lights?....there are OEM Tali lights for the hatchback I have them on mine.

Please clearify what you are talking about!

There's two questions in that post,
One is can i change just the LED bulbs out of my rear taillight housing? Or would i have to change the whole thing at once?

The second was if mazda 3 hatchback headlights fit the speed 3 hatchback headlights...Ebay sellers all say they dont but from what i read people say they do so i got a little confused..

sorry for the confusion haha,
thanks!

The bulbs are easily changeable on my 2018 hatch. I found a video including the 2009 Mazdaspeed 3, however I'm not allowed to post links yet.

Yes ALL Hatchbacks from 2004-2009 are the same...Just the GT model have the HID's though those are the more expensive type.

You can replace the halogen bulb w/ a LED Bulb you need to get Resistors to eliminate the "Hyper Blink"...OR just buy the OEM LED tail lights which look 100 times better anyways.
