LED Rear Bumper Lights

I was curious if anyone has tried to install the lights in the link below. I thought they looked pretty nice, but wasn’t sure how to install them. Any help is appreciated.

So what is the install process ?

How do you remove existing reflector and replace the light. ?
Do they remove from behind or much dismantling of parts ?


EDIT: looked today in daylight , appears to be easy access

and the wiring , splice it in ?


Any info would be good , I am considering buying a set



Thanks,
Dean

The only thing I see here is the Anchorman's foglights.

I don't see anything specific to the CX-3, but a youtube search on _mazda rear led reflector install_ yielded a fair number of hits that might help.

Me, I'd remove the rear bumper, remove the reflectors, mount the LEDs, and probably splice them into the tail lights.

Make sure you post your solution on here :--)

EDIT: The CX-5 Rear Parking Sensors install instructions may also help.

It worked last time.... here goes...

Anchorman, Anchorman, Anchorman

( Am I suppose to be looking in the mirror when I say it ? )

Left & Right rear wiring access points please
for
1. tail
2. brake
3. turn


Although I am considering changing 1 from tail to DRL thus always have my rear lit up.
This would likely result is a wiring run that would be fun.

The wires on the back of the lights look like they would benefit from the addition of a harness (RE: Canadian weather)

but seriously, Mr. Anchor - The man - any suggestions for access points for the wiring ?


Thanks,
Dean

The Anchorman may be taking a rest, or be on holiday.

Rest assured however, he will be back!

P.S. I believe he's "The Anchorman" because his wife is "The Anchorlady", a TV Anchor/Celebrity.
