  1. Clear headlight cover replacement

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I hit a deer a few weeks ago. The passenger headlight cover is broken but the headlight and daytime running lights still work perfectly. I only need to replace the clear cover and not the entire headlight assembly. I found a clear cover on Ebay but I don't know how easy it will be to replace...

  11. Clear your own DTC codes in Infotainment system

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So we all know and have had "issues" with our infotainment system, whether it be random freezing, nav goes to compass screen, system crash and so on, bottom line is it is frustrating and time consuming! In these instances one would have to bring car in to dealer for a "diagnosis" ? Well before...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    DETAILING: The car was on the dealer lot for only 7 days after it was unloaded from its trip from Japan. They just removed the film and I advised the dealer NO waxes and NO car washes. I took delivery of the car and did the following detail work: Washed Car w/Dawn Dish Soap (removes waxes...
  13. Clear Bra Film - 3M or SunTech?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Which of the two films would provide the better long-term protection or are they about the same quality? The 3M or the SunTech clear film? Both films come with a 5-year warranty. I believe with the thinner clear coats and base paints, rock chips will become more commonplace on newer cars. The...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I remember seeing a thread on here where someone with a Snowflake White Mazda 3 had a clear bra installed. It wasn't a 3M product, and someone had told be it was far better and nearly the same price, but I can't find that thread anymore. :( Kinda wanna schedule an appointment soon. Thanks in...

  17. Clear lenses install?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Can we just remove the bumper but keep the headlights on to install the clear lenses? I prefer to remove as little parts as possible. So can I just remove the bumper. Then use a heat gun and just heat the edges of the headlight and pop open headlight like that? To install the clear...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    New to the message boards. I purchased a 2012 Mazda 3 in July 2013. It was a overstock at the dealership. I noticed the other day that under the hood, on top of the strut mounts there appears to be a clear looking grease type substance. I don't think I have seen that before on a car and I am...
  19. Factory HID housing - is all clear an option?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    I love the HID's in my 2013 MS3, but I hate the lighting they went with for the parking lights. Doesn't match anything, they put out a nasty off-white/yellow light. Is it possible to change the inside parking lights to an LED bulb? I'd check the owners manual, but I am le tired and my car is too...
  20. I want to clear something up for you guys about LEDs...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    When looking for LED bulbs for your car, dont just look for the most LEDs in one bulb. More LEDS =/= brighter. This is a common misconception. There are a whole lot of types of LEDs out there. If you want an indication of brightness, find out how many watts they run at. While lumens/watt varies...
