I was getting gas last week and a gentleman came over and asked if he could clean my headlights. Have parts delivered straight to your home, or find the nearest Advance Auto Parts store to check out our Headlight Retainer stock in-person! Currently my right head light is out again. Therefore, you should turn your automobile's headlights on and make sure they are set on low beam so that you can better see what is in your path of travel. What does a recall consist of when you are driving down the road at night and both headlights go out at the same time and have an accident or hit someone else head on causing fatalities. I then spoke with thom and he also denied assistance. Unfortunately, I received a call from Mazda 3 days later alleging that my headlight assembly was fried because I did not use Mazda manufactured bulbs.
This car is a piece of crap all the way around but the headlights are really bad! What are my recourses at this point? I've change the low beam bulbs multiple times I do not touch the bulb with my hand and every few months the bulb goes bad. He did give it a try but it was futile. . I have also spent hundreds of dollars on this issue so it is not only dangerous but very disappointing not to mention very dangerous. Some Mazdas have high intensity discharge headlights, sometimes referred to as xenon lights.
I asked him what assistance could be provided for the replacement of the right side assembly and he advised there wasn't any. I felt that the lights were subpar from the time I bought the vehicle from new, but they have gotten worse over time. Have seen this same description in other websites as possibly the control module had a short circuit and this is a very common thing to happen to these cars. Having a problem with your car headlights means you are not as capable of seeing well at night or in bad weather. Or I think it is because it cannot be scrubbed off.
However, he advised he has seen this happen a lot with Cx-7 vehicles. I have a hard time driving at night and now I just can't because I am not going to get stopped again for having a headlight out! The housing which holds the bulb melting in both assemblies has nothing to do with the age and mileage of my vehicle. On such vehicles the entire auto headlight assembly can be adjusted to the left or right as well as up and down. The film that seems to be covering the lens is on the inside. I have changed the head light bulb on both sides for an entire year. When I compare the low beam halogen projectors on other makes of vehicles that I have driven, they consistently perform far better than those on the Mazda. I have put 8 light bulbs in this car and they were the expensive ones.
I took the car to Mazda roswell the next morning. This is about as unsafe as anything I can think of. I called Mazda and spoke with christopher and he said Mazda could not do anything for me because they apparently sent me an e-certificate last November when I called in about the right side assembly. The engine rattles everytime you crank the car and then goes away. You can use high and low beams, depending on the situation, and AutoZone features high-quality headlights from some of the industry's biggest brands. We have made several attempts over the years to get any of these done with zero success.
There has to be some other solution rather than spending a lot of money on bulbs or going to the dealership for them to change. If a problem occurs the bulb that is in question can be replaced, leaving the others untouched. Our air bag light comes on and goes out all the time. Fast forward, the left headlight assembly is doing the same. This happened around 36k miles while I was driving on a freeway.
While operating the vehicle with the headlights turned on, the lights would not illuminate bright enough for the driver to see the road ahead. In the past 6 months, headlamp bulbs were replaced four times. Mazda said the only way they would do anything is if there was a safety recall. I purchased another bulb and have to pay for a mechanic to fix my head light this week. He advised this is abnormal for the housing to melt and most vehicles would not have this issue.
I cannot remember when it all started. I advised him that I did not receive it and emailed it to me again. It is really scary driving home from work and new light bulbs did not make any difference. The dealership just keeps telling us to come back. I called Mazda filed the complaint however the rep set expectations for a call back that I never received. So this is not a problem of old lights on an old car.
This is such a stress er for me. The manufacturer and local dealer were not notified. The switch hooks into a 12-volt power supply running within the vehicle, and when it's activated, electricity goes to the headlights, turning them on. I wish there was someone out there that could help us in this situation. I only drive during the day.
