Did this video help you?

Steve Franklin (Disney Stories): Thank you for this video!

Valerie Houseman: That clip! Oh my gosh I hate that clip so much.

heychas: Thanks for the Vid! I watch it before every time I change a bulb... which is a lot for some reason (about 1-2 per year). 

yackadus: Maybe it is because I have freakishly small hands and fingers, the clip does not bother me that much.  The upper portion should be squeezed (strong pressure to be applied), but the very end is quite flexible and easy to pop out and back in.  It also is on a hinge, so once it is unclipped simply swivel it out and pull out the light bulb.

Walter Hurd: Ihave 2013 mazda 3l 

YoToTheHo69: I love everything about my Mazda 3 except this roostersucking headlight. You need lots of patience because unless you're thatasshole who designed this pieceofcrap, you're going to get bloody knuckles. I would be in line today to buy another (new) Mazda 3 but the headlight design did not change - so I'll be getting something else. Whatthefreak were they thinking when they came up with this headlight design???assholes!!

popolynn2: THAT GODDAMN CLIP FCSGFFCCFFUFUFFck

basisloaded: Why would you not show how to put it back in?!? That was harder than any part. Fail video. 

Mauro Herrera: hi ,,thanks a lot for your video,,i saved 30 $ to pay someone to change the ligth  and the bulb cost 14 $ :)

merci

Gazm Uno: The god dam paper clip is a bitch! 

Gabriel Torres: I was looking for Mazda 5 2008 but apperently they are the same

Dan Rigby: Great video thanks!! I didn't catch that i'd have to use half of the old bulbs so thanks heaps for pointing that out!

szsven: Thanks for the video, but you skipped an important step; to remove the rubber boot, you first have to disconnect the flat connector.  To do this, you must depress the locks on either side as you pull the connector off. 

To get the spring clip back into place after replacing the bulb, I recommend using a flat screwdriver with a long shaft to push on the clip until it seats.

solg05: Issues with the video:
1- It does not mention the removal of the connector before the removal of the round seal.
2- The pin on my vehicle is hard as rock and will not unlatch at all.

Derantin Galien: for those having problem with the metal clip that holds the bulb in place:
the clip is hinged, so it moves out of the receptacle and out of the way for you to remove the bulb, it is very easy to do, so if you are having problems doing this, you are doing it wrong. 
You do not have to put the bulb in with the metal clip in your way.
Once the light bulb is in place, you will notice that there actual bulb has a like a tab on the metal base, that tab is an indication on where it locks in the car receptacle, that tab/notch has to fit in place in order to keep the bulb in place.
Once this is done, pay attention to the actual metal clip, is has to pry on the side/lip of the plastic insert (where the bulb connects) not around the plastic insert, if you did this correctly, then you just push the clip back until you feel it hits a metal lip, at that point just wiggle it a bit and it will lock. The bulb has to be firm, if it is not, then you did this wrong.
Cheers!

Diana Hiatt: This video is super helpful, I use it every time I change my bulb as a refresher.
To Guillermo Matos, use common sense and put the clip on then. That doesn't invalidate the rest of the content. 

Jon Nones: Agreed...absolute pain in the neck. I'm not even sure if it's on snug or I bent it at this point. Guess if the light rattles or points askew, I'll know then. Great design, Mazda. Check out this video for a close up of the clip: Mazda 3 Headlight Retention Clip Closeup.

VantagePB: Yup guess what im having trouble with.. the crapty papper clip of a snap that holds the bulb back in

Guillermo Matos: Lol I just saw in the comments that you don't even put the clip back on. Big time fail on this video. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS VIDEO.
