I've been searching all day and can't find an answer to this. I guess I should have started by searching first
I'm just trying to replace a burnt out, drivers side, headlight on an 07 Mazda 6. I decided to wing it assuming it was very easy, and after searching it appears it is. Alas, while I was winging it I unplugged some cables. One is orange, one is black. The orange one seems like it's surely power as it fits on the back of the bulb. I can't for the life of me find where to plug the black one back in though. While fiddling around I accidentally touched the base of the bulb to the fuse box and it lit up so I know the bulb is working. I tried it with the old bulb too and it did not light up, and is pretty clearly broken so I know it's the bulb.
I'm trying to avoid taking off the side panel as that doesn't sound like fun and past experience tells me I'll just make things worse
Does anyone have any pictures or advice to point me in the right direction as to where that black wire goes? I'm assuming it's a ground and there are some metal posts by where the bulb goes that the wire does fit on to, but I connected it there and plugged the bulb in and it does not light when I turn the lights on.
