They're a turn signal repeater and they are replaced as a unit. You might break intoone, but you take the chance of destroying it, and they cost upwards of $40 ea. from what I've seen. Seems kinda' silly that Mazda would design them that way whena 194 bulb cost, what 20c, but watRUgonnado?

Old thread not-withstanding.....

The OEM ones are a single unit replacement, and I believe they cost about $14 each. You can cut them open carefully with a dremel to change out the bulb and then silicone them back together. I think ........ streetunit?...... or someone sells clear LED models but they tend to be a little pricey.

I've seen them for that on theAM... eBay, i.e., but from a dealer they are a lot more expensive. Even $12-14 ea. is ridiculous for a light bulb.
As for the LED versions, I've seen them on eBay too, and the price isn't that bad, but not my taste. I'm wantin' to get rid of the things altogether and smooth out that fender bulge.
