    <p class="p1">It’s no secret that there are a TON of smartphone mounts on the market right now, and given the sheer volume of dirt cheap offerings available across the web, it’s not always easy to separate quality from the junk that isn’t worthy of holding your long-dead 1st gen Motorola Razr...
  2. 2012 Skyactiv, how do I get to the canister vent valve?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Need to replace the canister vent valve, the one by the fuel tank. I can't see it from underneath, wondering what the procedure is to find and remove it. This is the part: https://d354nuoz4t18d4.cloudfront.net/images/996a7fa078cc36c46d02f9af3bef918b/110ae1149c98dbaac927725744ead0f8.jpg?cb=1545145619
  3. Air Vent Vinyl

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I'm looking to wrap the silver/aluminum vent borders. I don't want to break any clips but I would like to wrap it the right way by removing the piece and wrapping it away from the rest of the vent. Is there a way to do this or is it manufactured as part of the entire vent assembly?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    When I was popping the hood latch I felt something else under the dash jiggling around. It was this piece of plastic pictured below. Looks like the venting for the driver side AC. Wasn't connected to anything and I was able to pull it free with a little twist. I see a mount for a screw, which...

  8. Air Vent Trim

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Evening all, my Mazda 3 is the SE-L (UK spec) and it's gloss black city inside. I saw that the highest trim level has a silver/metallic looking centre air vent trim and I was maybe looking at swapping the gloss black one out for that, so as to break up all of the blackness that's going on inside...

    Hello Guys! So Its been a a while, and for those who are familiar with my case, I tried switching my original xenon bulbs to OSRAM CBI's. Sadly to my lack of expertise, I ended up bending the retention clip on the passenger headlight, and this is where all the story begins... I go to my...

    So I recently noticed in online pictures that some, very particular, mazda 3's have shutoff adjustment for the central air vents. it's a minor thing but I'm curious, what"s the logic? who gets it and who doesn't? seems even the highest trims in the US don't have it, while all the UK ones do...
  11. Ticking sound from vent when starting car

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    There is a loud ticking/clacking noise coming from the AC vent when starting the car. It will keep clicking at about 2 ticks per second for about a minute or two and then stop. It will then repeat when you turn the knob to direct air out of the windshield vent and then stop after about a minute...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Does anyone know how to remove the center dash AC vents? I've looked, but I can't seem to find anything about how they're secured in to place. I also couldn't find a copy of the manual online anywhere. One of my air flow fins seems to be slightly out of place. If I can, I'd rather fix...
  13. Wedding Ring Fell in Front Defroster Vent

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Greetings, I was wondering if the Mazda 3 forum could help me out of a pickle. My wife's wedding ring fell into the long front defroster vent of our 2012 mazda 3. When it fell in, we could hear it roll back and forth when we made turns, though, due to it being dark out and the angle of the...

    Hi, has anyone else looked at this "outlet tube" and noticed any build up (31000 miles). It is a tube on the right side of the engine, in between the two metal pieces on my picture just left of that rusty metal hilt guard looking part, same place in both the 2/2.5 (with the "white" cap). I was...

    Has anyone removed the defroster vent panel near the base of the windshield? Is it just held in with clips and pops out or is there more to it that requires the removal of other things first.
  18. Bad vent fan bearing?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a 2011 Mazda 3 Hatchback...Since November, I've been hearing squeak/whirr noise when I have the air vent running on levels 1 and 2. If I turn it up to 3 or 4, the actual sound of air blowing through drowns out the squeak/whirr. It doesn't matter if I use recirc or A/C, nor does the...

  20. Center Vent Plastic Damage

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I bought an air freshener a few months ago and when I removed it, it had leaked and damaged the plastic that it had been sitting on. (View pic full size to see the damage more clearly, the damage is very noticeable in real life). As somewhat of perfectionist I love to keep my interior flawless...
