  1. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    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...

    Hey guys, I'm in process of upgrading my front brakes with 2-pot front calipers. I will try to give you as much information as I can, cause it's a simple and cheap upgrade. So let me start :) 1. What is the goal and why I'm doing it? The stock brakes don't give me confidence while braking...

  7. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I am planning on doing some maintenance on my mazda 3 and the service manual says you have to turn the piston either clockwise or counter clockwise depending on what you are doing, pads or bleeding, but why is that necessary? what does that do? Also what is the thread pitch on the caliper...

    Hi! Do any of You have got these replice (fake) brake caliper covers? They available on ebay, but seemingly one size fits all types, so I am afraid they would fit ridiculous on a Mazda3... Thanks for any input!
  9. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I've been looking for some red caliper covers that'll fit on my 2015 Mazda 3. I don't really want to paint the calipers, and a cover seems the best way to get that extra flair.

    I want to paint my calipers but I need some input. Not sure what colour. I was thinking either yellow or black. I also think white would look good but would be an absolute nightmare to keep clean. What do you guys think? Here is my car: Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

    Rotor removal Does anyone happen to know what size bolt can be used to screw into the hole on the Rotor on my '14 3 to help remove it? Edit: I meant rotor, not caliper. Sorry!
  13. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So I changed out my rear rotors and pads and notice my driver side pads were horribly uneven... I put on the new sets and I can hear it grinding from that side. How common for a caliper to go out? Also I have the extended warranty will they cover a replacement? Edit: I hate typing on my phone...

    Car: 2012 Mazda 3 i Mileage: 75XXX My Gf's 2012 MZ3 is experiancing uneven brake pad wear. The drivers side front pad wore down to the metal after only 10k miles. This is the second time this has happened (last time was not so extreme in terms of low miles) but now we think there is a bigger...
  15. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hopefully someone can give me a hand with this! I have a 2013 Mazda 3i Touring with SkyActiv. It came with 16" alloys, put I got a set of Speed3 rims for really cheap ($350 for a set), so now it sits on the Speed3 rims. The only problem is the rotors like tiny with these bigger rims. So...
  16. Suspension / Brakes
    My brakes are getting spongy so I need to bleed the system, however, I rounded out my rear caliper bleeder valve and I was wondering the best approach to resolve this. I haven't been able to open it, hence the rounding, so I was thinking of drilling a small hole through the valve to get a nail...

    What do yall think about brake caliper covers? Where can I get some for my 2014 mazda 3 hatchback sport?
  18. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey all, I am considering plasti dip my stock wheels gold (they are stock color) and painting my caliper white (as they are a baby blue right now from previous owner) on my white '13 skyactiv. But before I do, I wanted to know if anyone has done this before and how it looks. Pictures would be...

    Caliper covers are well known products and lots of times they were discussed on forums. For those of you who meet brake caliper covers for the first time we'll briefly describe what this product is, how does it work and why would one need it. If a vehicle is equipped with large rims with thin...
