  1. 2018 Mazda3 & cracked windshield replacement

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have adaptive cruise control and other safety features. Windshield will have to be replaced. Wonder if I'll have to have it calibrated at the dealer afterwards. Glass place said it comes fully programmed and is just plug and play.
  2. Ultra Racing STB cracked during installation

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So i decided to get one and based on the reviews here i picked this brand for being a one piece bar, price and in white color. During the first fit test without putting on the nuts, i noticed the inner slot on each side were not dropped down far enough to expose a decent part of the studs, the...
  3. Corksport Exhaust - Cracked Weld

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Has anyone else with the CorkSport Power Series exhaust experienced a similar problem? I've had the CorkSport exhaust with Racepipe on my 13' Mazda 3 SkyActiv sedan for about two years now and I ended up developing a crack on the weld right after the resonator. It started off very small and...
  4. Cracked Rear Rotors

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Car: 2010 Mazda3 GT Sedan with 104,000 kms. I'm assuming these are the original rotors, as I purchased the car three years ago, and haven't replaced the rear rotors. My brakes had been making a lot of noise lately first thing in the morning. After a couple blocks, the noise would disappear...
  5. Cracked ABS box

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    How bad is it if the ABS case has been cracked just enough that there is an opening? Could it be sealed instead of being replaced?
  6. Mazda 3 windshield cracked.... OEM? OEE? windshield replacement

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    HI My 2016 Mazda 3 is just 1-year old and got a big crack after hit by a small rock on HW 3 days ago. :crying2: The crack is larger than "$1 dollar bill" so needs windshield replacement. But how to decide to go with an OEM auto glass or OEE (OEM equivalent per Safelite Auto Glass website)...

  8. Windshield cracked on its own

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey guys, just wanted to make a quick post to see if anyone had a similar experience or can provide any advice. My 2014 2.5 Hatch went out of warranty two weeks ago and the windshield cracked earlier this week. I carefully felt and checked along the crack, there's zero sign of any impact or...
  9. Got in an accident. Front bumper pushed in and cracked.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Anyone know what I'd need to replace or repair it? It's cracked along the grille/ "V" portion. License plate is also all bent up so grille will probably need to be replaced as well. Any good sources to get a new front bumper? I might get the MIT grille if it's cheaper than a stock one also. How...
  10. Cracked Paint Around Side Sill Plugs + Mystery Pegs In Rear Doors

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone, I just picked up a 2016 3, and have noticed that a few of the plastic plugs in the underside of the side sill/rocker panels have already started to show paint cracking around them (since Mazda install the plugs before they paint the car). I can only assume the cracking of the...
  11. Worst nightmare, one of the valve cover holes that hold the coil pack cracked...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I was changing my spark plugs and on the 4th plug (the far left one) when I was loosening the coil pack bolt (the things where the two engine cover clips are attached to) to change the 4th plug the bottom part cracked. Now I need a whole new valve cover I guess... where should I buy it from? I...
  12. Cracked windshield...repair or replace? OEM vs aftermarket?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So I was driving down the freeway a couple days ago, no trucks in sight. I was cruising in the slow lane with the car in front of about 3 car lengths away. I hear a loud bang/crackle and look at my windshield...and I see the dreaded crack, its about 18 inches in length. (from passenger side...
  13. Cold Weather = Cracked LCD Screen?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    In Canada, it gets cold. Real cold. It was -20 to -30 degrees C the last couple of weeks, and similar to the heat cycling of a windshield, the heat cycling of the LCD screen may have cracked it. There isn't any scratching on the outer surface. At first I thought frost had formed on the...
  14. Drive mirrior housing cracked

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    Well I made a boo boo this morning, my babies first. Backed out of the garage and i hear *SMACK*. Look over and my mirror is flipped out forward. The interal motor on the mirror to reposition it still works, the mirror is still in good condition but the housing is cracked. I contacted Mazda and...
  15. Cracked Rear Bumper on Canadian Mazda 3 Sky

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Looking for some good advice from my American friends south of the border here. My 10 month old 2012 Mazda 3 Sport got into a spot of bother after a reversing issue and the long story short, the rear bumper is cracked right down the middle, more or less over the rear plate. Own fault error so...

  17. Cracked Passenger Dash and Known TSB 09-038/12

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I haven't been on here for quite some time. Because honestly I have not had too many issues to report and nothing really modded on the car. I have the second gear syncro shenanigans. I have the squeeky moving seat. Both extremely covered on the forums. But now I have the worst cosmetic...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Drove my car over lunch for an errand and discovered this big ol' crack in my windshield: I have no idea how it happened and I'm not happy.

    First off, sorry for the noob post. Haha. The plastic shell on my rear tail light is cracked, can someone inform me on how I would go about replacing it? How easy of a repair would it be? Thank you!
  20. Cracked Bumper

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Update on my Cracked/Broken Bumper...So I went to Target Mazda to have the bumper accessed. Basically the Service Rep/Owner of Target Mazda stated (In his opinion) that Mazda Canada will not cover the damage since it appears ice built up inside the bumper causing the bumper to crack & a piece...
