Question: Mazda 3 Hatchback & Sedan parts
« on: January 19, 2018, 11:41:58 AM »
Hi everyone, I have a quick question about the fitment of Sedan headlights onto a Hatchback.

I have a Mazda 3 2.0 Sport and as things do with age they are faded on the top, yes I know I can go out and buy a restoration kit but I found this neat all black with dark/smoked chrome headlight on CARiD - https://www.carid.com/2005-mazda-3-headlights/lumen-factory-style-headlights-847875565.html
Rather than have the orange/amber reflector, the CARiD has a smoked white reflector for a subtle sort of stealth look but the issue here is that when selected it only has the option for Sedan which brings me back to the question of -

Will a Mk1 Mazda 3 Sedan for 2005 headlight fit the Mk1 Mazda 3 Hatchback 2005?

Your answer is no..  The Gen 1 vehicle body styles Saloon vs Hatchback,  differed in many respects. Not the least of which was the bonnet and front panels. Because of these differences Saloon Headlights will not fit a hatchback or vice versa.  Sorry :)
Look at life through the windscreen, not the rearview mirror.
