  1. Rattle from drivers side engine compartment

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    There is a loud rattle coming from the left side of my 2007 mazda3. The rattle sound only happens between 500 and 700 rpm. I have no idea what this rattle noise could be. If anyone does that would be awwsome. Thanks in advance
  2. Cleaning the engine compartment

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I was detailing my iTouring last weekend and opened the hood. Everything was dusty so i took a chamois and wiped things down, but was wondering if it's safe to hose things down. Does anyone have experience or recommendations on how best to clean the engine compartment? Thanks!
  3. Secret Compartment!

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello all A couple months back I purchased a 2013 M3 hatch. In the last car I would pull up the tray in the middle console that was held about a few clips. So far all I have come up with is pulling out the cup holds. What suggestions do you guys have for, easy to access, secret compartments?
  4. Help ID an exposed "L" connector - Engine Compartment

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hey Everyone, This is my first post - so forgive me for any offenses! I just returned from some maintenance service (oil change, tire rotation) at the dealership and decided to look under the hood. I always check the oil dipstick before and after an oil change as well as to make sure that the...
  5. Luggage compartment light (hatchback)

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    Does anyone know what type of bulb is used for the luggage compartment light ? The only thing stated in the owner's manual is 5W but no bulb type. I'm looking at replacing the factory halogen with a brighter LED bulb because I don't find it lights up the cargo area enough. Thanks
  6. Feeding Wires from the Cabin to the Engine Compartment?? (Pics)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    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...
  7. 12v line near the glove box compartment for LED's

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'm trying to wire in some always on LED's into the glove compartment and the center console storage tray and I'm hoping to splice into a line somewhere near the glove compartment. Does anyone know if such a line exists? I tried to look through the service manual but no luck. Otherwise, I'm...
  8. hatch compartment light

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Although the manual states that the light- the one on the left side of the rear compartment of the hatchback - will turn off when the liftgate is closed, mine doesn't. When I fold down the back seat or remove the hatch cover, I can see it's still on. Anyone else notice this?

  10. Center arm rest compartment power outlet

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    The other day, I shut off the car, and before I got out I was putting something into the center storage box. I always have my phone charger connected to the power outlet in there to make it easy to charge my phone if I ever need to. I noticed that the big blue AT&T light on the charger was on...
  11. No glove box lock or light?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So I just got my 2010 Mazda3 5-door S Sport and I love it. But recently I've noticed that my side glove compartment doesn't have a lock and when I open it, there is no light(theres something that looks like it may be a light but I don't really want to tamper with it without a confirmation). I...
