    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So..I had to cut my bump stops when I installed my lowering springs, which removed the section of the yellow bump stop that fits into the black plastic shock boot (dust guard). I now can't use it and need an alternative option. I have some universal dust boots (accordion style) up front zip...

    Before Swapping back to the stock intake from a Corksport SRI/Box I ordered this kit. It arrived a few weeks later in great condition and was made very well. Instructions were very clear as well. Well i took off my bumper, moved the horn, made the needed cuts, and reinstalled everything...
  4. Wheel Cleaners - Brake Dust Is The Enemy!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    This past weekend I decided to give my wheels a good cleaning and try to remove all of the brake dust that has accumulated over the past couple of months. I was actually surprised by the amount of grime and brake dust that was there, since I wash my car weekly. I purchased Meguiar's Ultimate...
  5. Dust caps on front shocks "floating"?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Fellas, I had my Mazda up on jackstands to remove the front rotors and have them resurfaced. With the car up in the air, front suspension fully extended I noticed the dust caps on the struts were un attached from the top or the bottom of the strut. I tried to push the lower portion of the dust...

    Someone posted about this on the Miata forum. I'm getting no brake dust from either the Miata nor the 3. Wondering what the OEM pads are. Ralph

  8. excessive brake dust on rear wheels

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Anyone has more brake dust on rear wheels instead of front wheels? I thought the front wheels handle more of the braking than the rear wheels. Therefore, as in most cars, there is more brake dust on front wheels. Wondering if this is normal or if I should have brakes checked out by dealer...
  9. Getting dust off the dash?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    What are you guys using to dust the dash? Being textured and rubbery I cant seem to get all the dust off with the usual methods. I was considering using a lint roller but not sure if the stickyness would eff up the dash.

    Hi all, I noticed that the front wheels get covered by brake dust very easily, in about 1000km they become black! Anyone noticed that?

  13. Is that brake dust clinging to the hatch?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Since I got my MS3 6 weeks ago, I've been keeping it really clean. Who wouldn't ;) But since my car is white, there is one thing that is driving me nuts on a daily basis. Something powdery is clinging to the entire read side of the car. It's kind of a dark grey powder with some bigger black...
  14. Annoying Rattling Sound from Rear (Dust Guards?)

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I have this annoying rattling sound coming from the rear of my 2010 when I go over bumps or even ripples in the road. In fact, the "ripples" can be so minor that you don't even feel them in the car because the suspension is absorbing them. I believe I've narrowed the source down to the plastic...
  15. One Complaint - Brakes - Dust

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    I have one complaint about my new 2010 MS3 and that is the brakes and how bad they dust! Are you guys having the same experience? If so I might go ahead and change them out with some Hawk's eventually. They aren't out yet for the 2010 so will have to wait awhile.
  16. Brake dust!!!!

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I still have the stock brake pads on my 04GT. Has anyone else noticed an unreal amount of brake dust on the wheels? Just a couple of days of driving and my rims are covered. Now i do wash my car allot and it's a standard so mostly i just downshift, and don't ride the brakes ever. So WTF?
