if its fogging up in your headlight assembly, then you should reseal the assembly. moisture is getting in there from somewhere and it may be the cause for your bulbs burning out. go to autozone and buy sealant then take off the bumper, take off the headlight and put the sealant along the part where the casing and the lense cover of the headlight connect. and if that doesnt work, then you probably have a crack somewhere and you will need to probably replace the headlight (if its in a visible area). but i would look for the crack and put sealant on it....these lights are too damn expensive to just be replacing.....sorry for the long reply

i will check this out. i think i may just take it to the dealer and have them figure it out since the car is only 5 months old.

I have a Mazda 6 Katano with a similar problem . The dealer has replaced the whole headlight unit once but the problem is still there and he is awaiting a reply from Mazda UK concerning this ! Please can you tell me what the notice from Mazda said ?
