  1. Rear driver's side caliper sticking (2014 3 s Grand Touring, ~77k miles)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hi all, I recently found that my rear driver's side brake caliper is sticking. My TPMS sensor went off while driving home one day, and when I pulled over to check pressure I noticed that rotor was extremely hot (much hotter than the other 3 rotors). Pulled the wheel off to take a look and...
  2. How bad is this rust on the calipers and discs?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I'm looking to purchase a used 2014 Mazda 3 sedan @80,000kms and found out the rust situation on the brakes look pretty bad. I'm not technical enough to understand how bad this is or whether some of it is just expected wear and tear from a 5 year old car. I'm in a city with harsh winters and...
  3. Will MPS Calipers / Rotors fit?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I've experiencing issues with standard brakes of my M3, so thinking about some upgrade. So thinking about small upgrade, BBK is out of my budget. MPS 3 or 6 should be much better than stock if fits. Even Mazda 6 standard brakes are bigger than Mazda 3, which I really do not understand. Anyone...
  4. Painting the Brake Calipers

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I have decided its time to paint my caliper’s. My car is Titanium Flash, and I have the stock colored bright silver rims as shown in the attached picture. I can’t decide what color to paint them though. I did a quick search and didn’t really find the kind of info I was looking for so why not...
  5. Painter calipers and plastidip'd wheels (for now)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Had my 2017 less than a week and already modding. Painted the calipers with G2 gold, and used plastidip on the wheels while they were off. I've been on the hunt for aftermarket wheels but so far no luck. So this at least gives me an idea of what it would look like. I'm looking for black PVD...
  6. Red or yellow calipers?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello everyone! It's the first time that I've ever posted here so... I was wondering what caliper color do you think I should get to my Mazda 3? It's a Soul Red one :thumbup 1: Thanks!
  7. Powder Coating Calipers

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Does anyone know of a place that will powder coat calipers? I know I would have to get the seals and what not replaced... So hopefully a place that can do everything and I can just throw the calipers back on.
  8. Painting brake calipers

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I've seen people painting brake calipers while the car is lifted up. I was thinking of lifting the car up, taking off the brake caliper (only the outside one required for painting), and bringing that inside my house for painting. How hard would this be? Are removing brake calipers hard? I...
  9. Brake calipers

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So I washed the car today and while washing the wheels I noticed that the brake calipers seem to be coated. Does anyone know if the calipers are indeed coated? Has anyone's calipers begun to rust? I would like to paint mine but if they are indeed coated then I won't need to Don
  10. anyone paint their brake calipers yet??

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I was thinking about it because im getting new rims in a few days and the brake calipers will be exposed more. I would much rather look into Powder coating them, but that's not an option at the moment. I've never painted brake calipers or even taken them off to say the least..anybody have any...

    Me and a buddy decided to paint my calipers yesterday, I think they came out pretty well. Took some pics off the before/after. If anyones interested in doing it (there are some tuts, search around) go ahead an ask. It was very easy, just a pain to mask -___- And yes, I went with the...

  19. Wheels painted white/calipers red

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I painted my wheels Apollo White (high gloss white) by powder coat, and my calipers red with Krylon Red Caliper Paint. I'm still working on the hub caps. They will be the same white, with a red Mazda logo. Also, what do you guys think of my "M" logo? I cut it closer together on the bottom from...
