New lights
« on: January 09, 2017, 08:57:52 am »
Hi I'm new to the forum and have just purchases a 2009 2.2 diesel ts2. I'm looking for some light up grades but confused about what bulbs are what. Someone told me the main lights are xenon. However looking at them they are really dull. What are the dipped and high beam types and what are the fogs. A friend told me h7 for dipped? Any help much appreciated.

They aren't an easy fit. I am not saying that is hard, but you need rather small hands to get the dipped beam ones out. Hence why Mazda recommenends doing it through the wheel arch. If I remember right the driver's side was a tad harder, a bit less space on that side.
