    Couple of months ago I purchased 2014 Mazda 3 Hatchback. After some time brakes start to get soft, i needed to press more to feel brakes being applied. First i taught it was bad brake fluid so i replaced it and bled the brakes (did everything according to a manual). Problem was gone, so I...

    Hi all, new to the site. This is my first time on a forum so I apologize in advance for any inconveniences I cause. I’m having an issue with my 2008 Mazda3 S hatch. The brakes have a very long pedal travel and make the whooshing sound when depressed. When applying the brakes, they will start to...

    Hey Mazda community, Quick question to see if anyone has dealt with a similar issue. I own a 21’ MZ 3 Hatch and have a tick over 10k miles. After about 1k miles my brakes started to develop a constant (and quite annoying) squeak from the brakes at low speed. I have addressed this with the...

    Does anyone sell braided / steel brake lines for the '22 Turbo Sedan? I reached out to HEL Performance, and they can make them, but need measurements and photos of OEM lines (which I don't have and do not have the capability to obtain). [Was posting about this in another thread, but seems...

    Hi all. I changed the front rotors a few weeks/couple hundred miles ago and starting yesterday there is a metal rattling coming only from the drivers side wheel.You can kind of feel it but it's mostly just sound that you can hear both inside the car and outside. It only occurs when pushing the...

    Does anyone know where I can get Japanese or American or even German made calipers? It irritated the holy hell out of me when I changed my pads and rotors and see my OEM calipers have “China” stamped on them. Like, wtf Mazda? That’s where you save some coin? On the fkn brake system!?!

  10. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey, I am working on a project to wire up some LED accent lights from XKGlow to my 2016 Mazda 3 iTouring Hatch. The controller has a wire that you can use to tap into a power source that is activated when braking. This sends a signal to the controller and the controller will turn all the LEDs...

    Emergency Brake light randomly comes on. Usually happens when I either backup in reverse towards a slight downward hill on my driveway or going up or down a hill. Then it just disappears... then maybe it will reappear when driving on flat road. But, then when the car is warmed up, doesn't...
  12. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    My 2010 Mazda 3 started having an issue that I can't figure out. Sometimes my brakes will randomly grind & I can feel it in the pedal. After they grind, all the warning lights on my dash come on, power steering goes out. I can't explain the grinding. My brake pads have plenty left & rotors look...

    So I wanted to replace the d/s rear brake hose. Used a flare nut wrench and lots of PB Blaster but still rounded the nut. Tried the flare nut locking pliers, rounded the nut even more. It is stuck. At this point, not sure what to do. These nuts seem really soft. I've lost 4 of the 6 flats, and...

    So as the title states I'm curious if this type of buildup is normal? I haven't really looked at the back of many rotors but the front of my rotors do not have any build up on them. The buildup is on the inside of the rotor at the bottom of the inside brake pad. It appears to me more of a brake...

    Recently I’ve noticed my car veering right when braking. I know there is a recall for the from brakes - but apparently my vehicle isn’t impacted. Not sure if there is a dragging brake, or just the crummy Bridgestone Turanza tires. Next time you take a drive do some tests and see if yours...

    Hey folks! My name is Andrew. I am new to the Mazda3 scene since I just purchased my car a few days ago (2014 white S GT 5-door). I am wanting to do suspension, exhaust and brakes. This car came from the north and I need to replace some of the rusty parts and I would like to kill 2 birds with...

    Most of the info I find is for the first and 2nd gen cars which is, rear right, rear left, front right and finish with front left. Does this hold true for the 3rd gen? I can't find any reliable info on the correct order. Thanks!

    Hello! I’ve had my Mazda for about 3 months now, no problems other than a little rattle here and there... but recently I’ve been getting brake problems almost every time I go for a drive. Basically the usual amount of force I use in order to brake, isn’t enough, I have to press the pedal harder...

    I have a 2015 mazda 3 1.5 hatchback, my pads and rotors are in need of replacement so I was looking to buy EBC redstuff pads, drilled and/or slotted rotors and braided lines but I can't seem to find a good website or kit for the 1.5l brakes. I want to keep the OEM size but just upgrade the...

    Hi everyone. I am sure I am not the only one who suffers from the easily warped rotors on this car. I wanted to ask the group if they have some suggestions with an upgrade for the rotor and pad combination that would yield longer lasting rotors and better braking performance. Note, I am not an...
