Is it possible to change my HID auto level headlight assembly to a standard one?


Asked by Sep 02, 2015 at 07:41 AM about the 2012 Mazda MAZDA3 i Grand Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got hit by a deer about a year ago, my high beam
now doesn't work on the passenger side where
the deer hit me.  My mechanic said it was an
electrical problem with the headlight assembly
itself but the replacement cost would be over
$1000 because it would need to be replaced with
another auto level assembly.  If it's possible I'd
like to switch both head light assemblies over to a
standard HID non-auto level assembly.

Might be more hassle with the swap, but I'd stick with the auto level to eliminate other issues. You can buy aftermarket light assemblies which are cheaper quality to meet your needs. Here is a link.....

0 2012/mazda/3/body_electrical/head light_assembly.html Is a link to a halogen headlight assembly, and I have the sky active package so that light won't work for me in multiple manors. Sorry I didn't mention the skyactive package, and thank you for the help but literally the only place I have found a direct replacement for the; HID, auto level, headlight assembly has been the dealership, and they want over $1000.00 for it, that's why I figured it I could switch and get a list of what I would need I'm sure even with the shipping costs it'll be under the price that the dealership wants for a replacement. I'd really like to stick with the HID's but I know it will need a new wiring harness, I just honestly don't know what all to get, and my mechanic/friend, doesn't have the time necessary to do the research on this. Thank you for the response Tom.
