  1. No Armrest???

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    How is it that for a "Sporty fun to drive car" that the armrest doesnt slide or lean forward to allow easier grabbing of the manual shifter, while giving the elbow somewhere to rest?

  3. 2017 Armrest Tweaks?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I've been searching for a way to tweak the armrest so that it slides forward a bit. Right now, my elbow rests on the cushioned edge of the drink holder because my seat has to be too far forward for my elbow to reach the armrest. Raising it a bit too would be even better. I feel like I am...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello from Puerto Rico! I'll do my best with my english! This is my first post, and my first Mazda (2015 3 iGT Automatic).

  10. 2013 3 armrest USB stopped working?`

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I had my iPod connected to the USB under the armrest (like I always have it), turned my car on and no music. iPod turns on and works, connects, iPod recognizes Mazda and on the dash it says IPOD as usual, but nothing else (like Song Title, Folder, etc) does not appear on the dash. Do I just try...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm considering buying a 2014 Mazda3 i Touring hatchback. My right elbow hits the left edge of the center console lid, which sticks out on that side. I was thinking I could replace it with the mirror image lid from a right-hand drive Mazda3. 1. Do you think that would work? 2. If so, thoughts...

    Has anyone removed the front door panels yet? If so, is the padded armrest able to be removed easily from the rest of the panel through the rear of the panel? I have checked out the workshop manual and couldn't get a clear answer from the diagrams. Thanks.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I searched and didn't come across anything. Has anyone swapped the rear seat back from the non arm rest seat to one with the armrest? I know our 2012 non armrest is a split folding type, does the seat with the fold down armrest still fold down? Would it be possible to just swap the larger side...

  18. Armrest Console Night LED

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv How-To Guides
    The only problem I have with the 3’s armrest console is that it’s a black hole at night. Even your head gets in the way of the dome light when you need to see all the way down. That and needing something to do, I set about to add light to inside the console that would go on/off when you...
  19. Power port in armrest

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Quick question for you fine peeps. If you guys have a charger plugged in to the armrest port (I use one for my phone) do you have to unplug it and plug it back in everytime you shut off your car for a while? I feel that it should be powered on when the car comes on, it's pretty annoying having...
  20. Driver door armrest padding

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I noticed today that my 3 week old sedan has a soft spot on the door armrest as though it is missing a little bit padding about where the left elbow normally rests. Is this a design feaure for the elbow to rest in or is my door armrest missing some padding under the vinyl at this one spot?
