  5. Windshield Wiper Fluid Adjusters?

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Is there a way to adjust where the windshield wiper fluid is sprayed? 2 of the jets go right over the roof on to the rear window (!), one hits the hood in front of the windshield, 2 go off the side, and three actually hit the windshield. Thanks.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Here is my issue: I bought a used 2013 Mazda 3 GT (took it to a Mazda dealership before buying for inspection, they said everything looked good) but now having it for a week, I have realized neither the auto lights or auto windshield wiper functions work. Both have AUTO on the control stick and...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have the 2017 hatchback. Went to the dealer to buy the rubber inserts for all 3 wipers but they don't carry them (at least not at THAT dealership). 3 new OEM wiper assemblies are over $75.00 CDN. Does anyone have part numbers or links to OEM or aftermarket blade inserts? Thanks for any help.
  9. 2016 rear wiper tension

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Anyone else had/having issues with the tension on the rear wiper arm? The spring in the rear wiper arm of my 2016 Mazda 3 Sport GS (IMHO) does not have enough tension to put enough pressure on my rear glass. It has enough pressure on the glass to wipe the ends of the wider blade leaving an...

  11. Did This Kickstarter Company Just Reinvent The Wiper Blade?

    Vendor Deals
    Gotta love it when new ideas and innovations come to an otherwise tried-and-true product. The Kimblade Wiper Blade is trying to bring an end to crappy, streaking, chattering wipers once and for all, and from what we can see they just might be onto something...

    Hi, I'm trying to remove the front wiper blades on my 2010 Mazda 3.

How can...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Just bought a 2015 hatchback. The rear wiper bangs into the spoiler/shade at the top of the arc hard enough to stop it unless I force something under the shade to raise it a fraction. Anybody else had this problem?
