    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Last winter the battery on my 2016 Mazda 3 went dead. It was recharged and since then when I turn off the engine the horn honks twice, loudly. Also loud honks when arming and disarming vehicle. I replaced the battery and still have the same problem. This only happened since the dead battery...
  3. Recall on wiper motor

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Anyone else got the recall on the wiper motor? Have you taken it to the dealer? I'm holding off. Have not had to go to the dealer so far (bought Sep 2016). Don't really want to take it in. Ralph

  6. DIY rear motor mount for 3rd gen Mazda 3

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Filled a stock mount with 65 durometer urethane. Now, I will say that this mod will increase the NVH on the car significantly and that the driver's side mount (transmission mount) is a far superior albeit costly and labor-intensive mod. But this will also help lock down the drivetrain and really...

    Hey everyone I recently made a thread on getting off the wiring harness for the starter motor. I since have got it off and installed the new one, but now I am getting the same thing.

  9. Motor mount replacement

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hey everyone, I was replacing the head on my 08 Mazda 3 and discovered that my #3 motor mount (passenger side) is in more pieces than it should be. I was looking online for a replacement mount and it suggested replacing ALL mounts at the same time. I'm wondering if this is really necessary or...

    Hey everyone, I'm looking for some help on getting the plastic harness off that covers the wires going to the solenoids on the starter motor. The motor got shortened out and no longer works so I'm replacing it and I'm trying to get them off but I'm scared of breaking them since I've never...
  11. Blown Motor - Need help with what to do next

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    3 days ago I was on my way home my motor blew on my 2008 base model Mazda 3. My question is that is it worth it to get it checked out and/or replace the engine/fix the damage? Or would it be better to just try to sell it as it for just a chassis? Any of you guys experience a similar situation?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    What’s everyone opinion on both, one or the other or none? I want to really pep up my Mazda. I know it’ll never be a race car (unless I drop a 5.0 L Coyote in it) but I want to do OV Tune and this is Mod I’m looking into.
  13. Urethane-reinforced rear motor mount for 2014+ Mazda3

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Mount came out of my 2017 Mazda3 with 9000 miles. Some minor revisions over the years, but seeing as how a 2014 mount fit in my 2017, the reverse should be true. I cleaned and filled the gaps in the stock mount with 60A poly mount. I have the same thing (filled a spare 2014 mount and put it on...
  14. DIY rear motor mount

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Made my own poly rear motor mount by getting the parts from a crashed car on eBay. Cleaned it up using a pipe brush and degreaser. Sealed off one side with duct tape and put it flat in a disposable take-out container filled with sand (so that in case of leak it wouldn't extend too far out)...

    Hey everyone, I have been working on my girlfriend's 2011 Mazda 3 2.0l. I grabbed a 2012 Ford Focus 2.5l long block from LKQ and swapped most of the items required to fit it.

    My 2010 3 2.5L manual trans driver side motor mount (or trans mount) is broken and I would like to find an aftermarket replacement. I am having trouble finding one, every vender has the rear and PMM but nobody has an aftermarket TMM that fits (or I'm not looking hard enough). I was told that the...

  20. Rear Motor Mount options?

    I'm looking into getting an upgraded Rear Motor Mount for my 2017 MZ3 2.0 Auto. Yes, I know NHV is giong to be increased, not too worried about it. I've been looking into options and I noticed that some of the Gen1/Gen2 guys use an e-Focus RMM with success. My quesiton is do we have any RMM...
