When something simple becomes not simple.

Got these from eBay per a Mazda6 group member’s suggestion. Driver’s side went on easy-peasy. Burnt my finger pulling the factory bulb out, though. Those things get very hot after just a few seconds of being on!

Passenger side was not as easy. The connector for the bulb fell up inside the door panel. I had to use vice grips to get it out. It’s mangled now, but serviceable. Then, the wires for that side LED both broke. I didn’t feel like trying to get a replacement from the seller in China.

So, I had to strip the rubber off the ends of the wires and reconnect them with electrical tape. My wife helped with the tape part since I was getting rather frustrated at that point. Surprisingly, they both work.
