mazda's have slightly different color green lights than rangers, but if you get a white cluster you can remove the white layer and place on your cluster to keep correct color lights to match radio n such.. just remove the needles very carefully and peel the section.

or instead of giving $75+ for one of those buy the film from eBay $24.00 CLICK HERE

i actually ordered mine from ebay it's white and it glows blue and indigo. the only problem with mine is that one or two of the lights like the check engine light doesnt match up. but once you get to know where the check engine light is it's all good.

The ones I had in my 03 would not stay down. So the needles wouldn't move.

yeah i had to mod mine just a lilbit the instructions tell you that the force of the screws will hold it down and if that doesnt work you have to pull it all apart again and use some thin double sided tape to hold it down. once i taped it down it works awesome.
