    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. Drivers side airbag within seat removal

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi there. Anyone know if its possible to replace the drivers side airbag located within the seat? Or do you have to replace the whole seat? On a mazda 6 it looks possible but on a 3 not sure. Nothing mentioned about it in the service manual either.
  3. Need to touch up drivers seat

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Where's a good place to get interior touch up paint? Oddly, a rivet on my jeans caught the drivers seat and left a mark. Wondering where people are buying good quality matching paints for this sort of thing. I do drive a 2016.5 CX-5 but figured it's a safe bet the interiors are the same black...

  9. Drivers seat flat wore out (actually in)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So, I just bought a 2015 Mazda 3 with 29,000 miles on it and the drivers seat is flat wore out; no lumbar support, no shoulder support and the seat bottom is saggy. I sink into it so far the head rest actually pushes my head forward. I use the passenger seat as a reference and it is night and...

  11. Drivers Window Comes up Wet

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Does anyone else have this issue? When I wind down the drivers side window, and then wind it back up again, it comes out of the door wet! Has anyone else experienced this, should I be worried that there is a lot of moisture inside my door? or could this just be damp seals from previous rain?
  12. only drivers window works. 2015 mazda3

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    On a 2015 mazda 3, I ran RCA cables and a power wire under the door trim for a sub install. I did not open door panels or touch the fuse box or any stock wiring. The stereo was unplugged and pluged back in. No stock wires were cut or spliced into and everything is still stock except for a...

  14. Drivers side door won't open, unlock switch working randomly

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Found out today my drivers side door won't open. Can't use the key, keyless entry button doesn't work. Can't be opened from the inside and that little lock switch is stuck on lock and can't be moved. The switch on the door will lock the car but not unlock it. Any idea what's going on?
  15. Drivers Seat Movement

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I wonder if anyone else is noticing this in their car. I have a 2014 hatchback and I feel like there is a little movement in the seat when coming to a stop and taking off. There doesn't seem to be any movement when I get out and try to move the seat but I keep getting the feeling that the seat...
  16. Horrible crackling noise coming from drivers side window/door/panel

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I am not sure where this horrible crackling sound is coming from but I think its either the windshield or something along the door panels. It is getting worse and worse. Here is a link to the video I took, it is an apparent crackling noise. Anyone else experiencing this...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    When I got in my car this morning, I noticed that the drivers front seat was Squeaking. Every time I lean back or apply pressure on the back rest of the seat it squeaks!?!? It’s not loose or anything it seems that something inside the seat is rubbing. Rubber? Leather? I can’t tell but it’s...

  20. Chip on the side of my drivers door

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    As the title says. My car is jet black so the chip has revealed the white under the paint. The car is 2 and a half months old, do you guys think it is too late to have the dealer fix it? If they can? This is my first car all by myself so I don't know really how this works.
