    Default 2017 Mazda 3 headlight bulb replacement - too soon?

    Hi All,

    Wondering if anyone else has had this issue with their 2017 or newer Mazda 3, bought mine last Jan so it's only been about 15 months and just noticed that my passenger side headlight has gone out? Does that seem normal? And would this be something covered under warranty? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Probably just a bad bulb. Luck of the draw.
    If it's a h11 halogen just swap it out. If you want a cheap upgrade, but a regular philips h9 and snip the tabs to mimic your h11. You'll have 50%+ output.
    Modifications? I've forgotten more than I remember. Click here for the list.

    That's a great tip! Thanks! And yes it was a bad bulb...went to yorkdale Mazda to swap my tires, asked them about it and they changed it no problem and said it was covered.
