Hi Guys. I need to replace the FOG light bulb of my Mazda Atenza 2002 Saloon GG3P. Can anyone tell me the specification of the Fog lamp bulb of Mazda Atenza 2002 Saloon? This is the 1 of the 4 lights in the headlight. Thanks.

It'll probably be written on it.  Something like "H3" for bulb type, 12V for voltage, a wattage (ie 55W or whatever) and may or may not be tinted.
Is it really hard to remove?  Picking up (or having the wrong one delivered) would be much more hassle than taking the bulb out and matching it up in store.  If DIY replacing, don't touch the bulb surface - or you'll probably end up needing to replace it again very soon.

+ This,


Go and pull it out and have a look, ( its got to come out anyway, and its not working so not having it installed for a day or two while you get a replacement is no loss)

If you need 1 for a WOF just disconnect the other. For non working fogs you no longer have to remove the lamps as well.

Is there a WoF crackdown specifically on lights at the moment?

Didn't all WOFs get a 6 month COVID extension until October ?,


it would be a bit silly to cracking down while only a few a going through

I've got a feeling those fogs are HID from the factory aren't they? Or is it just the dip light that is HID? 




I know you can get whole light assy replacements that are just for standard bulbs, which might be less drama than if you have to change out a HID - they can be difficult to get and surprisingly expensive.
