So for a laugh and a giggle I bought a cone air filter. Stupid me didnt look at the car before i did. Turns out the mass air flow sensor is attached to the air box. Anyone any ideas how to get around this with a connector which will receive the sensor or something? And yes I know I should have bought the induction kit. Cheers

Just an update, most of the lights in the rear clusters are LED and can't be replaced.
It turns out the unit fitted in mine was a replacement as the older one was cracked, it was replaced with the wrong one and luckily the previous garage has agreed to replace it for me as the unit is over £400  ???
Steering/Suspension/Brakes / Front strut top mounts
« Last Post by bilbo111 on June 20, 2017, 10:38:43 pm »
Hi Guys and Girls,

Having recently fitted new front struts I changed the top mounts in the process. The mounts I received were different to the ones I took off in the fact they came in two halfs bolted together. This fourth bolt fitted up thru an extra hole in the mounting plate. My question is do you leave that bolt in securing the two pieces together or take it out. Any one any experience with these top mounts?

From memory, your model does not automatically lock when you walk away. The exception to this is if you unlock with the remote but do not open any doors, then the system will re-lock by itself after a short period.
As I said in my earlier post, if you check to see if the car is locked by trying the handle on either front door without pressing the button on the handle, the very action of putting your hand near the door handle will unlock the car if the key is nearby. The way to avoid this is by checking the rear doors only.
When you lock the car, the indicators should flash twice to confirm.

Which door are you checking to see if it's locked? I previously owned a 2010 Sport with keyless entry and had a similar issue. Unlike the current model where you have to press a button on the door to lock and unlock even with keyless entry, the previous model would unlock as soon as you put you hand around either of the front door handles if you had the key in your pocket. The easiest way around this is to wait for the car to lock then try either of the rear doors to check. There is a setting in the menu of the current model to switch off "Walk Away Locking" as Mazda calls it, but I can't recall seeing something similar on your model.

Hi all,just swapped from the Mazda 6 ts2 estate to the sport estate,love the difference but any body clued up on the keyless entry as I thought it looks automatically as well as unlocks,I sent the daughter down the street to see if it was locked and it wasn't so I've been locking it with the key an it does unlock when I get back to it,plus any body know the best place for a spare key without it costing the earth as this only came with one key,cheers

Thanks Apav,

The car is booked in for this week, think I know why the bulb illumination came on as there is a nearside side light out but as this is a sealed unit and the bulbs are LED's I am not sure if they can be replaced so not sure how the warranty covers it.

Exterior Lighting / Rear Nearside Lights

Hi all,

Just noticed my rear nearside side light is out. The offside is fine I have attached a document showing the issue along with the light highlighted, I suspect this is an LED as it appears to be a sealed unit, anyone ever had this and can replace it. The car is still in warranty period but don't think bulbs are covered but this is a sealed unit so not replaceable.

Thanks Ivan
