I suspected it would be a new cluster but just wanted to make sure. Thanks for the replies  :)

Mostly genuine, but i've always asked the seller for the part number to check against my own to make sure it's OEM that  i'm buying

Plenty on ebay  ;D

The question (always is): are they genuine (and CE certificated) parts designed for the car or some cheap rubbish or dangerous Chinese knock-offs?  Not always easy to tell.

Again many thanks for your guidance.
Are there any owners in the Suffolk area who have had the correct undersealing work done professionally locally and how much did they charge?

Unless you're canny with multimeter  and a soldering iron and very patient you're looking at a new cluster.

Good news is they are readily available from breakers and bolt on and off with a single connector to the electrical system.

Vehicle Lighting / Rear LED light not working
« Last post by Markf on December 13, 2018, 10:12:45 PM »
Hi

I recently bought a 2004 Mazda 3 sport 2.0 which has LED rear lights. One of the lights has failed and what I would like to know is do I need to replace the whole light or is there a way to replace the LED bulbs? The owners manual contradicts itself, it says that a Mazda technician must carry out LED bulb replacement but then it says bulb replacement is not possible...very confusing. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I take it nobody else has had this issue hence the lack of replies in months.
Looks like a trip to a dealer then.
As for checking the manual, yes first thing i did (after trying to figure it myself for far too long).
Only thing the manual states is that the time will not be displayed if the GPS is not receiving signal, which is probably the issue, but I can't find any clues as to where the GPS receiver is, how to check it, reset it, etc etc.

As you should still be in warranty,take it to a main dealer and get them to verify that all is as it should be.

Sounds like they need adjusted. Shouldn’t be too tricky for a local mechanic.
