Hi, my dealer changed my headlights because water was inside, but I think they are missing the covers?

Dealer says thats it doesn't came with the factory.

Can you confirm if yours are the same as the picture? Thank you so much!

Do you have halogen headlights? If so, then maybe they should have covers - check the extract from the 2015 Owners Manual below

I cant tell exactly but judging from initial looks on the picture posted it doesnt look like a cover is supposed to be there but only if the cables go outside of the ring, (logically you cant put a cover on it if the wires are on the outside since how are they gonna go inside?). My saturn has headlight covers but the bulb wiring and such is all inside of the unit so it can be covered and the wiring is unplugged in another location from the headlight assembly. I also am wary of the manual instructions since manufacturers sometimes use very generic instructions like a generic mazda halogen bulb replacement step by step in general etc.

Thank you all!

My car is 2017, halogen with drl (on hi beams)

I was trying to search on the web, but my headlamp doesn't seems equal as USA specs.

I hope someone with the same headlight could post a picture, so if is true, I can go to the dealer to make reclaim.

Since the dealer changed both sides, I can't tell if there was a bulb cover.

US here. YES, there are rubber gaskets on both bulbs (high and low beam) on mine. It looks like on your version there is a cap/cover on the inner lens rather than a bulb, but the outer lens/bulb does have a rubber gasket on mine. The part number is N066-51-0A1A. Parts 7 and 9 on the exploded view.
