Default Mazda 2 2003 - Access to rear light bulbs

Hi Guys, quick question.

I need to replace the rear light bulbs on my car. Its not immediately obvious to me how to get to them. They don't seem to be accessible from inside the boot so it looks like a case of removing the light clusters.

Is anybody able to advise, greatly appreciated :-)

Yes, you need to remove the light assembly first.

There are two screws in the plastic panels lining each side of your Mazda's boot. Remove those 4 screws and then pull the panels will be able to see the wiring going to the rear bulbs. They clip on, so you have to press the wiring locks in to release the wiring from bulb sockets...make sure you don't pull the wires out by pulling on them but on the inner socket they are attched to as they will break if you do.

Once you do that, turn the bulb sockets clockwise to release them from the holder and change whichever bulb is burnt.

Note for the red light bulbs they have two filaments within for hi and lo beam when braking and for normal lighting.

If you can take a photo of your boot I can show you where the screws are.
