    Hello all. I have a 2015 Mazda 3, and the heater stopped working suddenly. The radiator is fine, the hoses are full, there is no smell of antifreeze, nor is there a coolant leak at all. The levels on all fluids are good, and my car isn't overheating or running high on RPMs. The fan motor is...

    Hello Guys, Today I changed my cabin air filter, bought the OEM Filter Part#KD45-61-J6X, at Tasca Parts online and I received the same filter as per the link below: https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Mazda-KD45-61-J6X-Cabin-Filter/dp/B00KWETZS2 However, the filter I pulled from the car has the...

    Figured i would try an after market in cabin air filter off Amazon that also has activated carbon. Problem is the filter is labeled with the wrong air direction? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LWV2W5M/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I4MLYOYQU29NH&colid=12UK8YYKL4S69 It will still filter debris of course...

    I just bought my car (2014 Mazda 3) and wanted to do some maintenance myself. The dealership changed my oil and suggested to get my cabin air filter done for $58. I declined saying I would do it myself - even though I've never done it. Anyway, I went onto Amazon and found an after market cabin...

    So the dealership wants $60 to replace the air filter. Seems like a lot of over price for something simple and small. Has anyone done it themselves and was it easy? It looks like this is the filter you need which is way cheaper unless someone recommends something better...

    I've searched on all the auto parts store everywhere and can't seem to find any except online. Does anybody know where to get it locally? I pretty much have all the major auto parts store around but not one has it. I'm in SoCal.

    So couple days ago I found a creaking sound coming from what seems like passenger side. I went to the dealer but could not reproduce it. So I decided to do some digging and process of elimination found the root cause.. i think. The sound is only noticeable while radio is off and car is in stop...

    Hey all. Coming up on 25k service for my sGT HB Mazda3. The manual calls out for the air & cabin filters to be changed out around 25 & 30k, if I remember correctly. I was thinking I would just change them both out myself at 25k. Question is, when I punch in the mileage-based service on the...

    Hey does anyone know if there is a carbon activated cabin air filter? Hate the smell of fake leather on a hot day. If not any suggestions on keeping that smell away?

    Hi All, Has anyone swapped out their internal cabin air filter (behind the glovebox) with an aftermarket alternative? I was trying to look up the specifications for the OEM filter (ie, size of particulates it filters in microns) but couldnt find anything in the manual or service guide. I'm...

    Is the Fuel System - Air filter change at 35k miles replacement separate from the cabin air filter at 25k? I went through the manual and I only found two air filters: Air cleaner element and Air cabin filter. NOTHING about air filter under fuel system So which one is the one listed under...

    So I got around to trying to figure out how I might get wires from the cabin to the engine so I could maybe make an independent Fog Light switch and I was wondering if there were any places to feed it through other than that main wire harness right in the driver side footwell. Here's a pic of...

    Mazda kind of skimped on the soundproofing for the interior cabin on the Mazda3. Is there a way to soundproof the interior without getting crazy and having to pull the dash or center console? I was thinking of something in the carpet area or doors.

    I'm going to try this out as an attempt to use a Japanese proxy shopping service, just to get an idea of the whole buying-from-japan process. We choose to buy this cabin air filter as a tester plus we get to test if this air filtration are any better than a) stock OEM filter KD45-61-J6X, b)...

    In the most recent issue of Consumer Reports, they say too much road noise enters the cabin. I have a 2014 S Grand Touring and haven't really paid a lot of attention to the road noise until I recently drove a 1 year old Ford Fusion. That thing was quiet! I did a little test on my Mazda3. When...
