I have the same problem with the rear-view dome lamp assembly.
Having discovered that the plastic terminal isolator bar is broken, and the skimpy rivets are loose; I decided to attempt to repair.
I'm using a replacement piece of UHMW plastic.
It is tricky, but no more so that brain micro-surgery.
I'm at a loss to explain why such an important item as a dome lamp was given the Fisher Price treatment.
Mazda needs more experience with electrical receptacles.
So, there are worse problems to be encountered.
Just remove the black plastic terminal bar and make another.
Selecting the right species of plastic is tricky too.
But, rest assured, it is repairable.
I most certainly will not pay $140.00 Can for the entire assembly !
But, let's take a moment to consider the plight of tiny marmosets in certain remaining jungles.
