  1. 2018 mazda 3 manual shift knob removal

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I was wondering if anyone has taken off the shift knob and put a aftermarket one on? Haven't found any videos. My 2006 mazda 3 shift knob screwed on and off and can't figure out if in my new one it's the same.
  2. 2007 Mazda 3 shift position indicator

    When I place my automatic shift lever in Drive, the on-dash display sometimes goes blank and the transmission feels like it has shifted into another gear. I can't tell which since there's no display. Wiggling the shifter makes the display come back on and everything is fine for a while. Then it...

  4. Mazda3 5spd shift knob (reupholstered)

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell

Over the winter I got the OEM shifter as a gift so might as well sell the one I refurbished. Shift...

    Is there any direct shift knob replacements that don’t require a spacer under the boot like most of the post I have already searched? I like the James Barone in particular but I am open to other suggestions of course.
