  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Tried installing the front Megan H-brace yesterday on my 2016 hatch. Front attachment points fit fine. The rear points, that mount to the subframe, did not line up. The bar was too narrow, by about 1/4-1/2". I tried loading the suspension, unloading the suspension, loading one side or the other...

    I'm doing some upgrades on my new Mazda Axela 2.0 Metero Grey Mica. This is the thread I show what I've done so far and maybe it should have been inside this section instead of interior and appearance since I did a shitload of sound deadening and audio...

    2.0l mz3, the car drives fine and everything but am getting a engine light, going to assume it's running too lean judging by all the other posts about it. My question is, will it be safe to just drive it or should I just put the standard intake on

    Hello All, I'm installing Front and Rear brake pads and rotors on a 2017 Touring, 2.5/6speed. The car is Japanese built with Electronic parking brakes. It was suggested that there are instructions to put the Rear parking brake into Maintenance Mode before swapping the brakes. Are the...
  6. 2019+ Mazda 3 Audio & Electronics
    I'm getting ready to purchase a 2019 Mazda3 Sedan and one of the first things I'd like to do is install a front/rear dashcam. Specifically, the Viofo A129 Duo. Normally I'll mount the front dashcam just below the mirror and run the wires underneath of the headliner just above the windshield...

    I’m currently installing the OEM front lip and side skirts for the 3. I ran into 2 problems, on the lip it says I need a Jack Nut tool to install jack nuts. Anyway to get around this without buying a tool I won’t use anymore? On the side skirts I was following the instructions to a T and when...

    I did the serial hack on my MAZDA 3 FW. 59.00.502 4A N (ADR). I installed some tweaks, everything is working as expected. In the MZD-AIO 2.83 (tips & trick) it's said that I can run AA from an SD card, but it's not really clear how to do that. I want to run AA from an SD card, so I installed the...

    I have a 2016 Mazda 3 So I got the official stereo retrofit so I can use Carplay / Android Auto. I noticed that playback of music on my usb drive disconnects randomly every 10 minutes or so. Sometimes it connects itself after one minute of silence, and sometimes it just switches input to FM...

    Hi guys! I recently bought a 2005 Mazda 3 (1.6L petrol engine) which came with central locking through key but not with keyless entry and I want to add an aftermarket solution to the car. I am struggling to find the correct wires to hook up the aftermarket keyless entry unit. So far I managed...
  12. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Just curious if this happened to anyone else. Up until yesterday, I was running North America (NA) firmware version 59.00.441, with a few of the AIO tweaks installed, specifically the no disclaimer, touchscreen while moving, main menu loop, improved list loop & shorter delay mod tweaks. I also...

    I know this forum is for Mazda 3s and I have a CX-5 but I think the cars are similar enough that people here might have ideas on how to solve this and this forum is much more active/knowledgeable than any other forum I'm aware of. I'm having an odd issue with my 2016 CX-5 after installing an...
  14. Suspension / Brakes
    I purchased some Eibach lowering springs for my 2015 Mazda3, and was wondering if anyone in the LA area could suggest a shop for installation. Price is of course why I'm asking on this post. If anyone is interested in doing it in their garage for $100, I'm certainly open to that too!

    When changing out the struts, do we need an alignment afterwards?
  16. Electronics / Stereo Equipment
    Hey guys, First post on the forum and I am most definitely a noob at car stuff. Just wondering if it is possible to install an infotainment stereo to the dash if the car didn't come with the info. system.

    Installing RB fsb or any fsb? Here is one tip The instruction from RB is really good except step 10, picture H. The subframe did not drop after loosen/removing all the bolts as instructed, even with a pry bar :) .On the phone with RB 3 times (very nice people, always try to help) and they made...

    Does anyone have any good tutorial sites or videos (or threads) to recommend for a non-electrician trying to install a light into the glove box of a 2017 Mazda3 GT? How about a lock? It really is ridiculous that Mazda doesn't add a glove light! :cursing 1:(My crappy 2008 Nissan Versa had one)...

    I have a 2016 3 sGT and a 2016 CX-5 GT that are both US spec. Both cars will be spending the next four years in Germany and I was wondering if it is possible to load the EU version of the operating system on a NA car without breaking anything. Also, do any of the EU versions break the AIO like...
