The Mazda RX-8's side-indicator lights are owner-replaceable; however, the bulb inside the lens unit is not replaceable. Therefore, the entire assembly must be replaced. Despite this inconvenience, replacing the side-indicator light is not a tough job. No tools are required and the procedure is over in about five minutes. It may be necessary to purchase the replacement light from a Mazda dealer. Automotive-parts stores are not likely to carry the custom unit.

  1. 1

    Place your hand firmly against the side-indicator light. Push the lens backward, toward the door. It slides back a few inches.

  2. 2

    Twist the side-indicator light counterclockwise to position it vertically. This unhooks the indicator-light clip. Pull side-indicator light toward you.

  3. 3

    Push in the tab on the wired connection attached to the bulb socket. Unplug the connection from the socket.

  4. 4

    Plug the connection into the socket of the new side-indicator light. Insert it back in its hole. Turn it clockwise to reposition the attaching clip.

  5. 5

    Push firmly against the light. Push it toward the front bumper to lock it back in place.
