Greetings!
I have a question that hope to be answered by the Mazda 3 fans out there.
I just did my first oil change on 2017 3hatchback at a local dealer. I noticed the plastic access panel to get to the oil filter looked bended after the oil change, not completely even. It does have all the screws on though.
I remember seeing the under body of the vehicle right after I bought it, the plastic under panel including the oil filter access panel was nice and flat, very even. I don't know if the mechanic did a rough oil change job or the access panel change it's shape because the heat coming from the engine or I am simply a OCD? :)
Any one ever noticed the same thing?

Hi Oscar gamer,
Thanks again for your reply!
I don't have chance to go back to the dealership to correct the access panel.
How bad is to leave it until next oil change?

Thanks again Oscargamer!
I will not have the chance to go back to the dealership to reinstall the access panel, how bad would it be if I wait for next oil change to correct that?

not bad at all

next time it's on the hoist, just have a look

so long as at least one or two of the clips/screws are in, it'll be fine
