    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Water builds up in the spare wheel well of the trunk to the point where in wintertime, I cannot remove the spare wheel from the trunk because it's frozen in a 10 lb. block of ice. Has anybody seen this? The water is not leaking in. It is super clean and pure. It is obviously condensation. I'm...
  4. Fog Lights Condensation?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys, Out of curiosity I was checking my fog lights today and I noticed there was condensation inside! I never noticed this on the stock fog ligh bulbs and I recently switched to VLEDS 5K LED's. Is this normal? Or is it perhaps because I switched to LED's? I was thinking that the normal...
  5. 2010 Grand Touring w/AFS condensation in the headlight assembly

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Last night when driving home I noticed that the AFS light was flashing. I dismissed it because I was almost home and both headlights were on. Fast Forward to this morning: I get into my car and notice the AFS light was still flashing. My auto-headlights fire up...but only one side. I get out...
  6. Anyone else seen this? Looks like condensation on gas gauge/tac display

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Looks like condensation but I'm sure it it not water, more like some kind of staining on the back side of the window. Don't really want to take this to the dealer because I don't want them taking my dash apart; unless it gets worse that is. Right now it does not affect your ability to see the...

    A week or so ago I washed my car (it was chilly out, probably mid 40's to 50's) and later that night I noticed that there was some condensation inside the headlight housing. I'm not sure if it's related to the car washing, but it hasn't gone away for a week. What can be done here? Anyone...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Did a quick search and came up with nothing. This is the first time of the year I've needed to use air conditioning. After a few minutes of it being on, I have an incredible amount of condensation above all of the vents. Is anyone else experiencing this. That amount of condensation causes...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So I was washing my car yesterday and when I came around to the front bumper, I noticed that one of my fog lights has severe condensation in it. Yes I replaced the stock bulbs with HIDs, I'm 100% sure that the HID bulb is sitting properly in the housing. I'm wondering...if I revert back to...

    I bought some LED mazda taillights a while ago. Thought they were OEM but they turned out to be DEPO. Anyways every single light has a tiny amount of condensation in it. Only comes out when its cold out. Are the lights defective or is this a common problem?

  15. Condensation in the GT HID headlight

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Walked out the other morning after one of our humid Iowa nights to find this. I took the car to the dealer where they asked if it had ever been in an accident (which it had not) and they quickly told me that they would order a new assembly under warranty. 4 days later they received it...
