Mines a Tourer and a later model, has two had holes that are not particularly helpful as there is nothing to grab hold of in each recess

Considering that you also have a problem with the drivers door window misbehaving, it sounds to me like the power supply to the drivers door  could be suspect. Have you tried  to see it you can get a continuity reading from a volt meter on any circuit within the drivers door ?   Does the adjustable glass in the wing mirror operate from the switch on the door ?
You say in your other window posts that you have checked the fuses.  I think you need to be looking at the wiring loom.
Troubleshooting / Drivers door problems
« Last Post by foxhillsteve on August 17, 2017, 04:50:35 pm »
Hi my 2005 Mazda 6 TS D has a problem in that the driver's door won't unlock or lock properly with the remote fob. I can open the driver's door with the key fine and I can open and lock fine using the internal open/lock switch.

When I use the fob the other 3 doors lock and unlock fine. I can see the internal door open/lock switch attempt to move when I use the fob, but it doesn't move enough to open or close the door properly.

The door handle itself works fine.

Any ideas?

I've also noticed that the driver's windows doesn't move up or down using the remote key fob (when you hold the unlock or lock button down), all of the other windows move correctly.

Would this mean it is the motor, rather than the switch since I'm using the remote key fob to move the window?

If it's the new style Mazda 6 with the new style infotainment screen with the volume button down at the commander (instead of on the stereo face), and there's a slot somewhere for an SD card (inside the centre armrest?), then yes- all you need is the card.  The cards are £700 from Mazda (not a typo).

Edit...have a read of this thread in the sister Mazda 3 forum...(I hope hot links to the sister site are allowed, if not please remove)...
Engine/Transmission/Powertrain/Exhaust / Re: Clutch gone?
« Last Post by mazda6mike on August 14, 2017, 10:19:12 pm »
As suspected the clutch is gone so it'll need to be replaced along with the dual-mass flywheel. The parts are coming to about £1000 and labor £300.

Given that the car has only got 85k miles and I've already had to get the head gasket done, I'm not impressed with my first year owning a mazda.
Ventilation / Which is the low side AC charge port
« Last Post by foxhillsteve on August 14, 2017, 09:50:34 pm »
Hi, I've just inherited a 2005 Mazda 6 TS D with a warm air conditioning system. I have a can of EZ chill that I used on my older car, I can see the two AC charge ports, one to the left hand of the engine and one more towards the right hand side near the front grill. Unfortunately there are no caps on the connectors that tell me which is the low and which is the high AC port. Can any one advise please.
