    Hi, I have a 2012 Mazda 3 i touring sedan w SkyActiv bought in Canada. My owner's manual (and several threads) say I should be able to change the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit using the info button. Problem is my car doesn't have an info button (it's a blank non-pushable button where...

    I purchased a new 2018 Mazda 3 with around 650 miles on it. I'm assuming that it was used by the dealer for many short rides. Because of that I made sure that they included a free oil change when purchasing the car. I got the free oil change coupon (which I need to schedule), but was...

    Hi all, wondering if anyone could help or advise. I have a Mazda 3 2014 2.5L Skyactive SportNav, I had the clutch changed last year and a short while after i noticed getting into gear (1,2&5) seems rather stiff sometimes. Its more noticable when the car is under acceleration, down shifting is...

    I just reinstalled my OEM summer tires. TheTPMS light has since come on repeatedly. It only stays off for a day or two after each reset. Tire pressures all look fine. Suggestions?

    Hi folks, During my oil change this weekend I noticed something that I do not recall from the last change. After warming it up for 3 minutes (from cold), with the engine off, I opened up the oil fill cap before diving under to pull the drain plug and noticed a decent amount of visible vapor...

    The dealer recommends that I change the oil at every 5,000 miles, while the service manual say 8,000 miles. Which one is right? Paul

    Greetings all...yep...it's an oil thread. Please accept my apologies in advance. So when I bought my car the dealer set the maintenance minder to 'scheduled' every 5,000 miles with oil change and tire rotation turned off. Once I got it back from my first free oil change, I turned the scheduled...

    Hi, I live in New Zealand. I purchased a Mazda Axela used car this time. And the Japanese language set up at the car. The installed OS version is 56.00.403 JPM. I would like to change the language to English. Can I install ADR_56.00.513C in the archive? Navigation is not available because...

    Seen quite a lot of features added by manipulation of the Asbuilt feature set. I am keen to know if there is some way to have the Japanese changed into English. The picture is of meter and I am looking for a way to get it to display in English please. Have searched far and wide and had no...
  12. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    This is a bit of a cosmetic things but involves audio so I'll post it here. I noticed the Mazda 3 has a rather large XM shark fin. It seems a bit overboard to be honest, especially compared to other cars. I'm wondering if anyone has looked into changing it out? I would like to switch it with a...

    Hi, is it easy to change the drive belt and is there a guide somewhere please....any other recommendations while changing it at all? Thanks

    My 2015 S Touring has about 70k miles. Does the transmission fluid need changed? My research says skyactiv vehicles do not need changing. Just wanted to confirm my vehicle is a skyactiv one. Besides oil changes and air filters, what other regular maintenance should I be doing?

    Hi - apologies in advance if this has been discussed elsewhere, but I didn't have any luck searching for it. I'm working on a project to modify the Version 70 firmware for Fiat / Abarth 124 Spider owners doing the CarPlay / Android Auto upgrade. As many of you know, the Spider is just an ND...

    Hi All, Anyone got a guide to how to change the Gearbox Oil please. Covered 60K and its sometimes a little 'crunchy' when changing gear so thought it might help. Thanks in advance.
  18. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I can't seem to find a thread that discusses how to change the front wheel bearing hub assembly for the '14. Am I just overlooking it or has this never been thoroughly discussed? I've looked at the service manual and it looks fairly straightforward and not to unlike previous models. Can...
  19. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I'm seriously considering getting a manual tire changer and balancer. Anyone do this job? It looks pretty easy to be honest. So I have the 16" OEM alloy wheels and another set of 16" steels for winter tires for my 3. The wife also has a Toyota rav4 with two sets of 17" wheels. I know the...
