Reverse Light Replacement 2003-2008 Mazda 6

Video Description

The reverse light is the white light that lights up when your 6 is in reverse. The video above shows you how to change the reverse light in your 2004 Mazda 6. These bulbs burn out occasionally and help you see when you are backing up. The reverse light gets dimmer over time and we suggest changing them in pairs.

Try not to touch the glass part of the new bulb with your finger when changing the reverse light in your 6, the oil in your finger will cause the that part of the reverse light bulb to burn hotter out therefore burn out quicker. Using gloves or a piece of paper towel will limit the potential of touching the bulb.
