  1. Central Jack Points?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I have 2019 Mazda 3 Sedan AWD. Does anyone know if there are central jack points front and rear? My habit when doing maintenance and other work is to put my cars up on four jack stands on cement garage floor. Dealer say no. Dealer also says there is no safe way to put car on jack stands...
  2. Where are the Trunk Tie Down Points?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I looked at the DIY guide for trunk tie down points. I can't locate the tie down points shown for my Japanese built 2017 Mazda 3 sedan. Where are they? Could someone who has done this mod on the sedan version please post a photo so I can locate the bolts for fixing the tie down loops.

    in my 2005 3i AT, the instrument cluster listed what gear I was in. so I got a feel at what mph was the earliest the tranny shifted gears and I let go of the gas at that point. so I didn't let the computer shift the gears but did it myself to increase the mpg. unfortunately, my new 2015 3i...
  5. Jacking Points

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Where are the front and rear jacking point for our cars? Looked all through the owner's manual and could not find anything. I'm not talking about the pinch weld spots for the emergency jack but for the area in the center of the car where you can use a floor jack.

  9. Does my car have fixed roof mount points for a roof rack?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    There is nothing I can find in the manual on this. I can find instructions online for using cargo racks with fixed roof mounting points but it's hard to tell what models and generations that applies to. I have a 2015 S GT and there is nothing on the roof that looks like a mounting point. Are...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Installed mud flaps on my IGT today, glanced at the user manual to get the jack points and lug nut torque specs. Rocker panels are the jack points however my jack definitely needs a correct pad for the rockers. I ended up just using the frame rail in the rear, and the beefy part of the lower...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Does anyone know where to hoist the car from? I was trying to get my car up on the hoist last week and didn't know where to lift the car from. I usually use the frame rails to lift the car, but the entire undercarriage is covered with plastic. The regular jacking points are thin and will...

    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?
