Take the front wheel off, undo all the fender liner clips in the wheel well, and screws under the fog light area. This will allow you to pull the fender liner back.




You will be able to see the low beam head light area, unscrew the dust cap and you have access to the hid bulb



To take out the hid bulb, twist the hid bulb plug counter clockwise, then pull towards the rear of the car. There is a metal clip that holds the bulb in, press the two metal tabs towards forward, and that will release the hid bulb




I hope this helps out who ever is interested in changing out their HID's vs. going to the stealership like the owners manual states or removing the front bumper and headlight assembly.

Thanks, great pictures.
I am installing extralights (http://www.extraljus.com/produkter/ex3000-ultra) on my M6 -08, but i need an wire from the "real" full/head light on the car to conect it togheter with the extralight. Do you know where this wire is, or where i can connect it to?
Sorry for "stealing/borowing" your tread =)

I just attempted to change my bulbs. I have to say, this is by far the crappiest headlight design I have seen. The headlights LOOK cool as hell though! Guess my bulbs are going back, or I will pay someone to change them...lol

I also will attempt to change bulbs. Been looking online for the last hour for best option and instructions. Tks jaysmazda6. Simple instructions and great pics. Can't believe haven't been in this forum before. Mazda owner since 1985 (rx7 '85 / protege 2001 / 3 2005 / 6 2010) I agree with popeye lights look great but somebody at mazda had brainfreeze when you have to take off tires and wheel well to change light

I just followed this without having to remove the wheels. First I jacked up the front end. Then I removed all the clips on the inside and the one on the bottom at the back. The liner will drop down with some finagling. This will give you enough room.

You won't have to worry about removing the screws up front using this method. Another advantage is you won't have to retorque the lug nuts after 30 to 50 miles.
