Mazda 2 2009 facelift version:

Dipped and High beam = H7
Sidelights = W5W

Unfortunately I bought H4's instead of H7's first time because I didn't realise that the new style headlights used different bulbs! So anyone interested in buying an opened but unused set of Philips Blue Vision H4 with free W5W sidelights? Selling for £14 including postage and packaging? RRP = £25

The high beam is not H7 on my sport it's HB3 (the manual said so). Got a pair from powerbulbs.com including the H7 for the dipped beam and they gave me 4x W5W for free (all philips blue), happy days. All the bulbs can be changed by lifting up the bonnet with the exception of the parking lights. Took me about 45mins to do. The parking lights took most of my time as i had to remove the mud guard to get to them. Very impressed with the results.

You can reach them from the engine bay. I change the through there as what the manual states is extra pain for nothing. Of course a friend of fine had problems as his hands were bigger!

lol! I have big hands too but you gona need baby hands to get to those parking lights through the engine bay. Am impressed you got to them through there.
The bulb changes are legal in the UK and doesn't void the warranty.

Hi, i think it will void the warranty since its not a mazda approved part, best to ask your dealer to be sure. If you have the non projected head lights (ts/ts2) those should do the job.

Dammit! bought h4 bulbs instead of h7 and didn't realise I'd got the wrong ones for my car (59 tamura) till I'd taken them out of the packaging and tried to fit one etc.

So..... if anyone wants an opened (but not actually physically used in the car) pack of
http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/H4-Ring-XENON-Ultima-120-Headlamp-Bulb-60-55W-pair.html?bulb_search=c11598

I'll sell them for £10 + postage to anyone who wants them! PM me if interested please :)

The normal headlights can be done from the engine bay ( hand and finger size dependant )

The angel eye style need to be done from inside the wheel arch, many people take the plastic liner out the wing but you cando it by unclipping it and pushing your hand between the plastic and the arch of the wing to get to the bottom of the headlight...
