  1. Right Headlight Pointing Too Far Left?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I just got a used 2015 Mazda 3 S GT a few weeks ago and I'm not sure if my headlights are broken or this is normal. It seems like my right headlight is pointing too far left or at least something is wrong with it. I took a photo with both on and you can see a big "streak" across the center going...
  2. 2008 - Rear left Door actuator

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    Hello All, I need to replace my rear left door lock actuator. When I look for the replacement parts, I find they say 'Front' in the description, but not rear. Does anyone know for sure if there is a difference between front and rear, or are they interchangeable? For example, Dorman only...

  4. Braking makes sound from rear left tire

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hello everyone Whenever I'm pumping brakes on my '14 M3 hatch, I'm hearing this screaching sound coming from my rear left tire. After further inspection, it seems like the disk b/w brakes (rotor?) has two rings, outerside is silver and innerside is black (compared to the other three where it's...
  5. Grinding Noise on Left Hand Turns

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hey guys, I've got a 2015 2.0L with a 6 speed with about 60k miles and I have recently developed a problem. On left hand turns, there is a grinding sound that's pretty aggressive. It sounds like a dust shield when doing minor turns, but if I make a 90* left like getting onto an on-ramp, it gets...
  6. Left foot braking

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So it was recently pointed out to me that I could benefit from some left foot braking in autocross. I have a very tough time with this, at 6foot2 trying to get the steering wheel out of my way without compromising my ability to control the vehicle is not easy. So today I tried a new...

    Have a 2016 Mazda6 (posting here because more traffic). Have car 1.5 years and nav has always played out of the left front speaker. And audio does not mute when nav issues instructions. EXCEPT the other day when in the midst of a trip the audio stopped and the nav instructions came from all...

  10. 2007 Mazda 3 AT, AC cold on right, hot on left?

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hello! So yesterday, my AC started blowing hot on the driver's side and ice cold on the passenger side. I've never even heard of this before, so I'm a little lost. According to what I've been able to find, it's either the blend door actuator or low freon; I don't think the 07 has a blend door...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi Forum, So whenever my steering wheel is straight, and I make a turn left there is this "Clicking Sound" coming out from the steering wheel. This is the fist time ever that I notice this sound after 1 year and 2 months of owing the car. Can somebody advise if this is normal? Or is this a...
  12. Occasional Grinding from left front wheel when car is starting to move?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    This is the 3rd time I've heard, it always happened when the car is stopped (ie. on red light) and if I accelerated with a bit of heavy foot on green light. It sounded like something from left front wheel side (I think left or maybe just me) grounded against something. Only happened for a...
  13. Refilling Holes Left By Emblems

    Interior / Exterior
    I officially removed my emblems on the backside of my car. I was originally going to replace them, but liked the way my car looked without them on. A couple of the emblems left holes, as expected, but I was wondering if anybody had any idea as to how to fill them easily without having to spend a...
  14. Front left clunk

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello all, A few months ago I had an intermittent clunk in the front left of my 2010 mazda 3 2.0L Sedan MT. Since it was constantly near 0* out, I figured it was ice. Now several months later the problem has either reappeared and/or gotten worse. ANYTIME driving <25MPH (cant hear it anything...
  15. Random rattles and squeaks coming from front (left and right)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Installed new BC coilovers and since then, I've heard random rattles and squeaks presumably coming from the front two coils. It's a soft rattle. Required to have nothing playing in the car in order to hear it. It's random because I can't recreate the sound by going over a bump or anything. It...
  16. Coolant overflow cap left open upon delivery

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So Im not impressed, took delivery of my Mazda 3 today, got home and was going over the car, opened up the hood and found the coolant overflow cap not properly secured. Didn't notice any leaked coolant, but definitely not happy about it. Should I be concerned with air in the coolant system now...
  17. Left Side of Radio and Backlights

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, My girlfriend just purchased her first 2010 Mazda 3. Silly of me that I didn't notice this while test driving, but the left preset buttons don't work (1,2, and 3) and the FM1/FM2 button doesn't work either. AM buttons and seek buttons seem to work. I also noticed that she has no...
  18. 2014 - audio cuts out from left side periodically - any known fix?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The girlfriend just bought a used 2014 Mazda3 iGT, and when listening to the radio (it may also happen in other modes, we haven't used them much yet) the audio will periodically cut out from the driver's side for a few seconds. It sounds a lot like what happens when the nav is giving...
  19. Replacing and Painting Dented 2014 LEFT Fender Piece

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi I'm new here and so MAD... Someone kicked my 2014 Mazda 3 Hatchback (White) left fender and bent it pretty badly. I would like to know what my options are. I'm thinking just replacing will do but I'm really worried about the paint quality, that it will fade out before other areas. I found...
  20. Only left DRL on, is this normal?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I've recently bought this car and loving it so far, I noticed only the left DRL is on when the hand-brake is released (and lights are set to OFF position), is this normal or is it an electrical issue in the car? When I turn high beams, both lamps come on no problem. Thanks
