US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 03V206
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 64,000


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.

Remedy:
Dealers will install a spring to prevent the socket holder from separating from the lamp case. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 7, 2003. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

Dates of Manufacture:
July 2000 - May 2003

Manufacturer Recall Number:
1103F
