    2004-2009 Mazda3Appearance & Interior
    I've been searching for a replacement driver's side door for my vehicle and want to clarify a compatibility question. Do the sedan and hatchback use the same doors for both front and rear? I thought I saw something at one time which stated they do, but I want to clarify. I do know the front...

  9. What do you use to clean your throttle body?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I tried cleaning the throttle body on a 2015 2.5L with some CRC throttle body cleaner but that stuff dries so fast I wasn't able to clean it completely but I got most of it. Just spraying it wasn't doing much. Is there anything better that I can used that wont harm the coating on the throttle body?
  10. Cork Sport 2.5L Throttle Body Product Request

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hello Everyone, Looks like Cork Sport recently came out with a "plug and play" electronic 72mm throttle body upgrade for several Mazda platforms, see link below. I didn't see our Mazda 3 platform listed in the compatible models list. I've reached out to their Sales contact to see if an upgrade...

    Any one knows other than cold climates the flow of the coolant via the TB is necessary, I just see that is heating the air unnecessarily.... maybe I can delete that with a bypass.. any ideas. Ps. I live in a 32C, country....

    I damaged the rear bumper of my3 this past weekend. Can anyone recommend a auto body shop in the LA area? The damage is about the size of a dime, but it is right in the middle of my rear bumper. It is beyond a simple wax/buff. -Thanks
  14. How does the OEM body kit look on 2017/2018 Sonic Silver?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi, I just ordered a 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback (with Vision Plus as it's called in Sweden) Sonic Silver and I can't wait to get it. It'll be quite the upgrade from my old 2007 Kia Picanto! While browsing around I've seen a couple of body kits (I'm think that's what they're called? I know nothing...

I'm looking at this option since it's not so viable for me to purchase the OEM Aero Kit, it's too...

  19. Grounding Throttle Body

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I read on another forum that grounding your throttle body can give you better throttle response and smoother acceleration. I know little to nothing about cars but the how to seemed easy enough to do, but I believe it was for an older generation mazda 3. Has anyone done it on a 2014+, or will...
  20. Body Control Module BCM Compatibility

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    My power door locks havent been working for months (power unlock works just fine) and after much research, many people say I have a faulty BCM. However, I just cannot swallow forking over $300+ at the dealer or online store for a new one, especially if I'm not certain it is the problem. So, off...
