    Hey guys, I have a 2018 Hatchback and just got a roof rack and the likes for my kayak. However, my car conveniently did not come with the factory tow hook so I have nowhere to tie the front and back of my kayak down to. Does anyone know the thread size and the length needed to clear the front...

    I was super exited today to install one of those front tow hook license holders that attach to the front tow hook. Well, after I took the plastic cover out, I found out that my car doesn't have the socket. Is that a standard thing for 2014? https://i.imgur.com/X9FxmIZ.jpg Note: Yes I know...

    All - The tow hook is neatly hidden behind the front grill. How do you remove the front grill cover to get to it? I want to put a 'tow hook' license plate holder there but can't get that piece out. The owner's manual doesn't say how to do this. Thanks.

    Does anyone have any advice on how to let people steal these things? I recently bought a 2015 Hatchback Touring and recently someone took off the tow hook cover. I purchased a new one but am concerned it’s just gonna get stolen again.

    Guys Im 1 foot deep, stuck/high centered in the snow, Mazda did not give me a tow hook for the front, local Mazda parts does not have any available locally and cannot tell me what the thread pitch/size is. I have been looking far and wide to find the thread pitch/size of a 2017 Mazda 3 front...

    I noticed that our manuals say that we should not tow our cars, then how are we supposed to move the car in case of an accident? Telekinesis? :cursing 1::cursing 1:

    So I live in Washington State, and being far up north we can get quite a bit of snow (especially this year). If I slide off into deep snow, is there something for a truck to latch onto to pull me out? I cannot find a tow hook anywhere on this car (I also have not lifted the car up to look...

    I drive a 2014 Mazda 3 iTouring sedan 2.0l. I have been looking to buy a tow hook to add to the front bumper. I've come across some pics on this sight with Mazda 3's with a tow hook. I ordered one thru ebay, and although the compatibility chart stated that it should of fit my vehicle, it did not...

    Hey guys, I'm starting to see more members in here with a tow hook in the front of their car and I was wondering what is it used for? Also can you guys recommend me a type/color tow hook for a white 2015 Mazda 3 hatchback with black accents? Thanx :)

    Hey guys love the look of 19x8.5 +45 I see most of you are doing it with ease so that's what specs I'm wanting but do you think I could still tow without rubbing. To be safer suppose I could go 19x8, i sometime use my 3 to tow small box trailer so I'm worried with the added weight it might push...

    I was doing research on my 3's towing ability. I'm thinking of getting a small boat. I found lots of past discussions on this forum but it's mostly opinion vs opinion and some informative posts like how the 3 has a towing capacity for its euro model but not on the U.S. model probably due to...
