pop the headlight up , turn off the key. Remove black trim around head light bulb with screwdriver. Remove the retaining screws holding the bulb in place . Be careful notice the difference between the "alignment screws" . These are used to aim the light. There are three retaining screws. There's no need to remove them entirely; just loosen them enough that the trim ring is able to rotate. Rotate the trim ring and and remove it.

Pull out the old light SLOWLY to avoid damage to the wire harness on the back of the light. Carefully disconnect the harness , it has a clip you must squeeze, dont just pull it . Remove old light . Hook harness to new light , put new light in. Place the trim ring over the screws and rotate to lock it in place. Tighten the three retaining screws.

Turn key on , and check the light beam . If its were it used to be , continue to black trim piece. If not , you need to re-align with the "alignment" screws mentioned above . Dont worry , you cant hurt anything . Then reinstall the Black trim .

Any Mazda pickup produced AFTER 1993 is a FORD RANGER. If you can find diagrams or instructions for a 1994 Ford Ranger it will be the same as your Mazda. Ford at one time owned a 50% stake in Mazda, and didn't like the competition from Mazda's pickups (much more reliable) so they halted the sale of Mazda's in the U.S. and branded their Ranger pickups with the Mazda name and number designations (B-3000, etc.).
