This video demonstrates how to change a burnt out taillight bulb on your 2008 Mazda CX-7. Some of the other bulbs in the tail light cluster such as the brake light or turn signal may also function as the tail light in your CX-7. It is possible for the turn signal or brake light to work but the tailight part to be burnt out - replacing the bulb on your CX-7 will restore functionality to both. Since the tailights are on whenever your parking lights or headlights are on, they will burn out eventually. Burn out tail lights are a common reason for a police officer to pull you over, so we recommend changing all of the tail lights on your CX-7 whenever one is burnt out.
When changing the tailight bulb on your CX-7, be careful not to touch the glass part of the new bulb as this will cause the tailight bulb to burn out quicker.
