  1. Seat bolsters: 19>18

    2019+ Mazda 3 Appearance & Interior
    Comparing 19 with 18 back to back, the new seats have less thigh and back bolstering. With the 18 seats, I sit IN them. With the 19 seats, I sit ON them. The new ones aren’t bad, but I definitely feel like there is more lateral support in the previous generation. Oops, sorry, title should have...
  2. Removing leather seat cushion

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I've recently bought a used 3 Sport that came with leather seats. There's a split or stitch failure at the front of the seat where thigh area meets side bolster. Got access to the workshop manual for the 2014-2017 model but this is the 2017-facelift. Has anyone had any luck removing the leather...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

About 4 weeks ago, the passenger seat belt light began going off (chiming/flashing) with no one in the vehicle except myself in the driver's seat. I buckle my...
  5. Improve seat comfort?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Has anyone managed to make these seats more comfortable? Maybe it's because I'm 6'1", but I find the seats absolutely horrid for longer drives. No thigh support, which puts lots of pressure on my tailbone and lower back. I tried opening up the back of the seat and inserted some foam to give more...

  7. Rear Visibility Tip: Remove the rear seat headrests

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    The rear glass of the 2019 Mazda 3 has a beautiful sweep to it but it does make visibility limited. By removing the three rear headrest you open up that entire area and can see quite well. The best part is that you can always put them back. To remove them just press the locking button near the...
  8. First Problem - Driver's Seat

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Well after about 9200 miles I finally had a reason to darken the doorway of a Mazda service center. After grabbing my lunch, I sat down in the driver's seat of my car to hear a slight pop as I settled. If I moved in the seat slightly, I was able to recreate the popping sound and the seat rocks...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    The driver's seat in my 2014 Mazda3 won't move forward or backwards. I can pull the lever in the front of the seat up, but not enough to free it. Anyone else experience this? Any tips?

  11. I can't lower the front seat in Mazda 3 2004!

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hi all, I was testing the driver's seat lowering/raising lever. I successfully raised the seat to its highest setting, but now I can't lower it! The lever only seems to raise the seat and not lower it. My head is hitting the roof! Any ideas on how I can solve this? Many thanks in advance Jules
  12. OEM leather power heated seat wiring

    Interior / Exterior
    I've just bought some leather power heated seats to replace my factory cloth seats in my 2009 BL Mazda 3 1.6l. The passenger seat went in fine, the new power seat harness fit with the factory harness in the car. However the driver seat wiring harness from the new power seat has more wires than...

  16. 2014 GT Driver Seat

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I just recently found the side of my seat cracking in two spots, one around shoulder level where I must brush up against the red stitching and the second is down on the outside edge facing the door. I thought I had leather but this appears to be vinyl, is it just leather on the parts you...
  17. Driver’s Seat Wiring

    Interior / Exterior
    Hi folks. I have a 2006 hatchback. I purchased the driver’s seat out of a 2004 hatchback to replace the busted seat in my 2006. The wiring harnesses of the two are very similar, but with one pair having a different location. From what I can gather, it’s the wiring for the airbag. I’m hoping I...

    I purchased my car and the seat belt was fixed (not the correct way) and the mechanic put a resistor on the harness and cut the plug that comes from the harness to the seat belt airbag... this was done before I purchased the car, so now I want to purchase a new seat belt but I dont have the...

    Interior / Exterior
    Hello all, I've got a 2015 Mazda3 with a power seat that stopped moving on one side. Turns out this little drive shaft looking fellow sheared. It's 1/8th square on both ends, and 3 inches long. I took the car to Mazda (warranty expired last week) and they quoted $900 to replace the entire...
