  1. Tow Hook Size? (2018 Hatch)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    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...

  3. Front Grill - how do you remove the cover to access the tow hook?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    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.
  4. Front Tow Hook Cover

    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.
