Once you've taken a 6 front bumper cover off, you will see, it really is that simple. For the US cover it is even easier, no headlight washers.

I see you have the lower fogs. Any chance you could post the install instructions for them? Still trying to figure out why mine don't work and maybe I can gleen a bit of info from yours.

Are the pics an image file or a pdf (or similar file)? I'd love to see the instructions in a pdf file and placed somewhere in the FAQ section so people would know how to remove their bumper (say to install new lights or an intercooler!).

The 2 halogens come also with a Swith to control all the lights. But incluied another position to control suppously the rear halogen light (for Europe models). I had to go 3 days to connect al the cables because they dont know.

The light come with Plugs but........the 6 dont have the direct connection (No plugs I dont know why. Genuine accesory).

We have to wire each lamp and put a fusible. The wiring is conected direct to the new control. But they have to open the steering and soldering the conection into the new position.

Same problem here. Sounds like yours is a totally different install. At least we have the plug. Not working, but it's there.

Thanks anyway

I stayed 3 days in Mazda. First Day They take off all my bumper but......Where are the PLugs?
Second Day Pickup the 6 but when I turned on the light. When I turned one the low light also trun on the new halogen.
And the Third Day I stayed 2 hours watching and controlling the instalattion. ouchhhhh Now I am happy

Tomas,

The US kit has a new (larger) relay for the fogs, my problem is that the plug that is supposed to energize the new relay doesn't get power when I turn the switch. The fog relay in the fuse box does energize but I'm not sure the plug is connected to that relay.

Nobody (not even Mazda) has a wiring diagram for the US 6 yet.

That, is truly sad. No shop manuals, nothing.

I've had 5 or 6 e-mails back and forth with Richard at Mazda South and he is doing his best to track down anything Mazda has on the wiring. Such is the price for being first I guess.

I only see 1 wire but go under the Fuse box.
From under the FuseBox a black wire have a extension that connect to a 30A fusible and continue the wiring until each halogen lamp.

You have to Wiring from Halogen Lamps, insert an fusible (30A) for protection an wiring into the REAR FOG DEICER RELAY inside of the FUSE BOX.

You turn on this halogen with the control in the second position halogen. You can see in the picture

Thanks Tomas, but there are some major wiring differences it seems between yours and a US version.
