Mk 2.5 aftermarket headlight angel eye led fix

Postby Mazda Mender » Sat Aug 09, 2014 11:25 pm

As nice as these are, owners are hitting a problem with the Angel eye LEDS failing or not even working straight from the box as i myself hit, so in mazda mender fashion i went on a mission to solve it and share my fix, this is a simple but permeant fix to the problem for good for the cost of ÂŁ10 and a bit of time/upgrading.

So have you bought these in clear black version or clear chrome version...

This is the little LED that is giving the head ache that come with the light units which is hit and miss if they work or not, and the biggest problem is that you cannot get new ones :sad:

So this is the How to on the conversion for good and the LED bulbs are easy to get if one does fail :handgestures-thumbup:

Remove the unit from the Roadster and turn upside down...

This is the voltage step down box that needs to be cut out and removed for good that works for the angel eyes LED's not the DRL LED's....

You need to pop the rubber grommets and pull the old LED bulbs from the units...
