    Posed this question in my newbies welcome but wanted to thread it incase others have the problem. Problem. Handbrake doesn't engage strong enough to support the car on a hill Solutions tried. Change both sets of pads and disks. Tighten the bolt behind the handbrake. It is now at its furthest...

    Hi there, I recently got my new 2015 Mazda 3 GT (I'll probably post the pictures and introduce myself properly a little later). I know that on some cars the hand brake uses the rear disks and some cars have a dedicated small drum brake for a hand brake. Which is the case for 2015 Mazda 3 GT...

    Never owned a car before with an automatic gearbox! So, what is the best way to park the car? Put it in the "P" stand and/or pull the handbrake? Or, leave it in neutral and always pull the handbrake? Some say this is the best way for avoiding the handbrake to get stuck. Any experiences? Thanks!

    I was bored and came across more OEM parts that the US doesn't carry. It matches the interior handles of the 2.5 sport, unavailable in the US ATM. There's probably an abundance of aftermarket brake covers but the thought of having OEM would great. 2010 Mazda 3 hand brake cover BBP3-V8-190...
