I have 2017 Mazda 3 (Machine Gray) Vin # starting with 3MZB-----, so made and assembled in Mexico.
When I searching Right side mirror assembly and cover, they selling both "Mexico Built" & "Japan Built".

The Mirror cover Mexico built, they offer, DOES NOT have "Machine Gray", but only "Gray", while Japan Built has "Machine Gray", so I like to use Japan Built parts if it will fit on my Mazda 3.

So my question is, Can I use "Japan Built" parts on my Mazda 3 made in Mexico?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts and advise and expertise.

Thank you again for thought.

old post but might help someone in future’ i have mexico 3 as well i ordered a japan door panel’ while it does fit as far as “alignment goes” the slot that hold the lock/window buttons is completely different and won’t lock in right’ it works but it’s shady’

also for anyone replacing window belt trim from chrome to black learn from me do t waste time painting / wrapping it it will look terrible spend the $80 and move on w your life’ the belt line molding for front doors is the same mexico/japan but the rear door ones with the curve i learned the hard way’ bought the japan ones for a mexico 3 and the clips are diff’ what i’ve learned when possible order the part for your car japan/ mexico etc some are interchangeable like console/ command knob /screen hope this helps someone in the future’ stop trying to “do it cheap” it will only cost u time and money get the right part and move on :)
