    I just got a 2020 Preferred HB last Wednesday and absolutely love it. I came from a 2015 Golf, which I had to get rid of due to repair costs, but the 3HB has made me forget all about it. Except for one thing - the seats. The Golf had the best seats of any car I've owned due to my bad back. They...

    I have a 2020 Mazda 3 Premium with black leather seats. Today, I got out and realized there was a tiny tear in one of the small perforations of the driver seat. I got the car new in November, and I have only ever driven it while wearing an oversized nylon parka that has no zippers on the back. I...

    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...

    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...

    Driver seat panel/controls flopped out today How embarrassing. I went to see a friend today to show him my new car and as I get out of the car the drivers side seat panel/controls flops out. He looked at me and said, I will definitely not be buying that car. Sigh,,,,, Upon closer observation...

    Hello...I bought a new 2018 Mazda 3 Touring hatch, 6sp manual, in early July 2018. As of 31 May 2019, I have 662 miles on the odometer. 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...

    Hi, first time poster. I have a 2017 Mazda 3 SP25GT BN series Sedan. (Second from top-of-range) It comes with a heated electric drivers seat and a heated non-electric passengers seat. Neither side has a “memory” function for multiple drivers. I’m wanting to know A) If a an OEM seat from the...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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

    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...

    I want the GT seats but the driver has power functions. Is the i Touring pre-wired for them or am I stuck with what I have?

    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...

    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...
