Remedy Dealers will inspect the installation condition of the fog light bulb assembly and repair it when necessary. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during March 2003. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

Summary On certain minivans and passenger vehicles, the socket holder in the fog lights is installed in the lamp casing using pressure. During operation of the fog light, the heat from the bulb can expand the socket holder. The expansion can force the socket holder rearward. After repeatedly being subject to this expansion, if the fog light is also subjected to vibration during vehicle operation, the socket holder with the bulb holder and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light casing. Should this occur, the bulb socket and the harness can drop inside the bumper, and the heat generated by the bulb can cause the bumper to burn.
Summary On certain minivans equipped with front fog lights, the fog light bulb socket may have been installed improperly. The bulb socket and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light housing and drop inside the bumper. Should this occur, the heat from the fog light may cause a fire.
