  1. mazda3 HVAC stench is back

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I've sprayed Lysol in there already, but as the summer came back, and I've started using the AC again, the stench is back with a vengeance. What causes the mold/mildew to grow inside the vents? Is the AC dripping into the ducts??
  2. Does anyone know what these HVAC controls are?

  4. Console gets extremely hot when AC is running

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    My girlfriend drives a 2010 Mazda 3 (2.5/manual) and has been having issues with the passenger side lower console heating up extremely hot to the touch while the A/C is on. I attached a picture of exactly where the heat is sourced. It doesn't do it when the A/C is off or if just the blower is...

  6. HVAC Blower Motor Failing

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    The blower motor on my 2013 GT has been acting up lately. It first started making a subtle clicking noise when the fan was on which led me to think it was on its way out. Recently, the fan won't come on until about 10 mins of driving, and while on it makes some pretty bad noises (like the...

  10. "Analog" HVAC sensitivity

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi All, For anyone with the analog HVAC controls (ie the three knobs for temp, fan, and vent position), what are your feelings on the temperature sensitivity? I find the temperature to be almost binary -- it's either freezing cold or boiling hot and not much in between. I had the car in for...
  11. JDM Air Cabin HVAC Filter (K015 V9 030), and it's green !!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'm going to try this out as an attempt to use a Japanese proxy shopping service, just to get an idea of the whole buying-from-japan process. We choose to buy this cabin air filter as a tester plus we get to test if this air filtration are any better than a) stock OEM filter KD45-61-J6X, b)...
  12. HVAC underpowered?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a 2012 Skyactive Sedan and have been unimpressed with the heating and A/C since I bought it. When it is decently cold outside, it takes a good 15 minutes of driving before the car really starts to pump out heat (by that point I'm basically home from work) It'll put out some warm air but...

    I really hate the old style knobs that the GS (in Canada) comes with. Would knobs like these from the pre 2014 models (link below) fit the 2014 model? Amazon.com: Chrome CNC Billet Aluminum A/C Control Knob Heater Panel Switch For Mazda 3 3pcs: Automotive Thanks.

    :winkiss: I have a new noise.. whenever I turn the hvac on to cool/cold ( AC doesn't have to be on ), it whistles!! annoying. I can turn the temperature to warm and the whistle will slowly go away, all the way to hot and its gone. I took out my air cabin air filters and cleaned the box out...

    Hey guys, I've looked through this forum and the "How-To" forum...I have yet to come across clear instructions (with or without pictures) on how to remove the center HVAC console unit.

    Hello there, I am enjoying my new 2011 3 SGT crystal white. It came with the fully automatic HVAC system, and I have been trying to decipher its instructions for days. I had never had an automated temperature control. My problem is the following, like in non automatic systems, how do you manage...
