    Hey all! My mazda has some pretty bad shifter wobble. I've tried replacing the whole shifter assembly and replacing the bushings with solid ones, but I still have wobble, which leads me to believe that the linkages on the transmission have bad bushings or something. I found a kit on...

    Hi, Is anyone have a dimension of OEM shifter bushing or Corksport product? Or can check for me? I would like to make my own from aluminum. I cant remove my own because i am at work now on the ship. I have access to equipment and material. I live in the Centre of Europe so the shipping will...

    Hey all how’s it going? I’ve been looking into getting some solid shifter bushings and thought might as well get a short throw shifter too. Problem is, I cant find any haha. It seems people only make short shift plates for the 1st gen's now. I think I'm a little late too cause it seems all...

    Hey guys, I’ve had this issue with my 2010 Mazda 3 2.0L (165000 kms) for the past year or so and I still have yet to figure out what the problem is. It’s actually driving me insane. When the car is in drive the “D” indicator light in the cluster will flicker on and off sporadically, and...

    Sometimes I feel a vibration in the shifter when changing gears particularly if I am a bit aggressive while accelerating... is this normal? Also sometimes, I get a 1-2 clunk. I do recall reading some other users had this issue. This happens only occasionally, not quite sure why.

    Has anyone done this? If so, which parts/guide did you use? I’ve seen info for the 2014-2016 but nothing specifically for the facelift models. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    $25 shipped and paypalled. These are $30 plus tax on the JBR page. The JBR Solid Shifter Bushings create more responsive shifts in your MAZDA. Having solid spacers removes the sloppy feeling from the shifter, greatly improves shifting accuracy and allows the driver a more connected driving...

    My new-to me 2004 Mazda 3 came with a shift boot that has seen better days. There seems to be a lot of generic ones made online, but not very application specific ones. I found a used MazdaSpeed3 shifter panel with an OEM shift boot installed from an 07. The tabs and size look almost identical...

    I have seen reports of this posted for earlier models, but I was curious if anybody else has seen this or has a solution for 2014+ The attached images are from a service manual and a Youtube video. Similar to earlier models a white plastic (nylon?) "crown" captures the ball of the shift lever...

    I just completed my second successful Mazda3 retrofit for Carplay/AA, but unfortunately cracked the glossy black gear shifter when I pulled it off of the middle console. Upon further inspection, it turns out my own Mazda3 also has a crack, in the same place (thought it was a scratch, not as bad...

    Didn't see any posts about these so I figured I'd do a little write-up. Bought some James Barone Racing Solid Transmission Cable Bracket Bushings after a friend that knows FWD said that such a upgrade is definitely worth it. After a quick test drive this evening, I agree. Very easy...

    My sons 2005 Mazda 3 just stopped shifting out of park. I've tested these: The horn does works the brake lights do not work the solenoid to release the shifter from park doesn't work. Steps tried: I replaced the brake light switch but no improvement. The Brake light connector does have 12...

    I’ve installed the JBR short shifter and all their bushings. I’m happy with the upgrade, but still don’t like the wobbly feel of the gear shifter. I’ve exposed the mount and it seems there are some plastic bushes linking the shifter to the cables. Would there be any upgraded options for...

    My brand new Mazda3, touring, silver with black int. Look at the VERY annoying unintended consequence of the chrome at the base of the shifter. When the sun comes from one direction, it is laser like blinding. Thinking I’ll paint it.

    Hope this helps anyone who's more visual like me. The CorkSport instructions are very good and easy to follow but I thought it would be nice to see someone else. https://youtu.be/_d97ehxQPQw

    Anyone knows how to remove the piano black trim around the shifter? Planning on wrapping them as it scratches like crazy
