    Hello guys! I recently made a stupid mistake and waited WAY too long to replace my brake pads. Ended up completely ruining my driver's side rear brake. I found that fixing the one brake was going to be nearly $600, and there weren't many options for new brakes under $1000. In addition, almost...

    I have a 2016 Mazda3 iTouring made in Japan with about 77k miles. I'm getting close to replacing my brakes. I called my local dealership to get a quote and was told $595 per axle. He mentioned that they generally always replace rotors when they do brakes. I asked him for a quote without rotors...

    2019 3 Premium Hatchback bought new last year. Car is only at 7,800 miles now, but this issue has been there since day one. I've noticed that when I step on the brakes there is a small vibration (more like a buzz) in the brake pedal. Now, this isn't like your normal warped rotor vibration, the...

    I recently bought a 2015 Mazda 3 S Grand Touring (Made In Japan) with 16k miles on it. The car steering and brake pedal vibrate when braking at 50+ speeds. Can't feel any vibrations on passenger side. After some looking around online it appears to be warped rotors are causing this. The...

    Hi everyone, So I violently blew out my front tire in July. A bungee cord flew out of the back of a truck and got caught around my axel and then the end of the bungee cord popped my tire. I got the tire replaced no problem but my abs light was on. Fast forward to about a week ago I was driving...

    Year 2 of my ownership -- all fluids got changed including the brake fluid. Motive doesn't make a cap that fits the Mazda reservoir, so I made my own. Bought a spare cap from the dealer (like $5), used a belt sander to smooth all that writing/letters off the top. Sealed up the vent...

    Guys Anyone have tips for removing this from a caliper with the manual handbrake? All of the official repair guides don't go into any level of detail. Is it a matter of pulling the actual cable or unbolting the entire mechanism from the caliper? My last car had drums in the rear :) I'm...

    Heard the scraping signalling that it’s time to switch my brakes up from the rear left tire. I dropped the tire off and to my surprise found that the inner brake pad was worn all the way down (unevenly as well) but the outer brake pad still looked fresh. Anyone have any insight as to why it...

    I have a 2 month old 2018 M3 Touring with 2K miles. I noticed that the rear brakes sometimes make a squealing noise when driving slow, and the noise completely STOPS when I hit the brakes. It seems worst when the car/brakes are cold. I took it to the dealer since it is so new and they said...

    Hey All, Rewind to October 2016 - I had brake noise on the rear passenger side @ 22K miles. Upon inspection, the pads were unevenly worn. I took it to the dealership and had it repaired under warranty & TSB 04-001/16 (shown here.) The repair procedure includes a new/modified caliper mounting...

    Car: 2014 Mz3 i sport. 70,000 km / 43,500 mi Bought the car in February knowing the rear brakes would need to be replaced soon. I think I now have a month or so left before I have to do that so I'm looking at my options. The front brakes are going to last a while longer. I suspect I have OEM...

    How far is all the way in? The boot keeps wanting to twist with the piston. Do I need to back off anything with the parking brake to make it twist in at all?

    Hi all, I have a 2012 Mazda 3 I Touring. Next weekend I will be replacing my power brake booster. It is mostly a straight forward job as far as I can see. My question is this. Has anyone performed this repair? I am looking, mostly just by feel at the pin on the brake peddle that connects the...

    Any recommendations where I can get specific tool for Mazda. In the past, I made the caps and used a clamp for my other cars. The Mazda’s reservoir has a slanted base and i can not use the clamp as I did with other cars. I went to buy a factory cap and made the fitting but it won’t seal the...

    Hello, does anyone know if the Auto function on the electric parking brake can be turned OFF? I would like to turn it on and off as needed instead of it coming on by itself ? Thanks for your help.

    Hello. My parking brake works but will not stay in place. There is no clicking noise when I move it up and it goes directly back down to the resting position. I did hit a pot hole between it working and it not. Here are photos. Did a piece come off? I'm far from home and wont be back for a...
