CX3 LED backlights fitting

Hello,
I want to ask if someone know about LED backlights fitting. I have not LED backlights, but I want upgrade them to LED ones. Are harness and fitting the same, or I need to modify something?
Also, I am thinking about upgrading my front lights to LED ones. What about front lights installing difference from non LED to LED ones?

are you referring to the bumper reflectors? I have the LED lights that replace those if that's whats your referring too. I have yet to install them but they would need to be wired up into the existing brake lights. looks pretty simple to do

Hello, Mazdaman. I'm in Edmonton and have a 2016 GT; I've often considered modifying the bumper reflector assembly to accommodate a tail light in one section, and a brake light in another section. Are the units you have something you've put together, or something available in the marketplace? I have no objections to buying the LED lamps and fitting them myself, but if there is a 'kit' available it would save some effort..... Thanks. geoff

Hey Geoff, there is a thread on this here

https://www.cx3forum.com/forum/appea...er-lights.html


I have installed the three-way (includes turn signals) - I have not yet taken video , hard to do alone , perhaps I will set up the tripod. All friends and relatives like them so far, not yet a negative comment.

Excuse for CX-3 road trip; Meet in Red Deer , I'll show them to you.

Thanks, Dean, for the info. Interesting looking units, although one of our US friends didn't seem too impressed. Nevertheless, I'll give them some thought when spring makes itself known....
