    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys, I have a 2018 Hatchback and just got a roof rack and the likes for my kayak. However, my car conveniently did not come with the factory tow hook so I have nowhere to tie the front and back of my kayak down to. Does anyone know the thread size and the length needed to clear the front...

  3. Front Grill - how do you remove the cover to access the tow hook?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    All - The tow hook is neatly hidden behind the front grill. How do you remove the front grill cover to get to it? I want to put a 'tow hook' license plate holder there but can't get that piece out. The owner's manual doesn't say how to do this. Thanks.

    Does anyone have any advice on how to let people steal these things? I recently bought a 2015 Hatchback Touring and recently someone took off the tow hook cover. I purchased a new one but am concerned it’s just gonna get stolen again.

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    Ok, so I think the best option for a permanent front tie down point might be an aftermarket JDM style racing tow hook that can mount to the bottom or somewhere between the lower grille. However I cannot find anywhere how to mount a tow hook like that on my '13 MS3, or if it's even possible...help!

    Under the rear of the car there are two round welded steel wires that form loops. These could be used to rescue and recover the car from an accident or such but do they serve another purpose?
