My upper fog are melting the plastic around it...

What should I do. I have stock bulbs and the plastic is melting around my upper fog light. Passenger side. I know there's a recall in the states for that problem, but I haven't got it here in Canada. Thanks for reading!

I think I'll go see the dealer tomorrow for that. But since nearly all the replacements parts for the Mazda6 are in backorder in Quebec. I'll keep my car and just wait for the parts to ship. I don't want to lose my baby for a couple of days again...

it's not the problem I have so far... I have check and it's just that the H3 bulb is heating too much. It's not that it's not install properly...

Check what Canada Transport is saying about the recall...

On certain vehicles, the front fog light bulb socket was installed improperly. If the vehicle continues to operate with this condition, the bulb socket and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light housing as a result of exposure to vehicle vibration. Should this occur, the bulb socket and the harness can drop inside the bumper and in the worst case, the heat generated can cause the bumper to burn. Correction: Dealer will re-install the bulb socket properly.

So it's not a problem with the socket. It looks like a problem with the ballast that send too much power to my lights...
