Thanks for this. Yeah my car does have the electronic handbrake. I have sent the pictures and my details to Mazda direct so hopefully they will come back to me soon. I will let you know.

This recall would not affect your car as it only covers the first versions of the new shape which had a manual handbrake. If yours is a 2017 car, it would have an electronic handbrake. I would contact Mazda direct as the wear in your pictures seems excessive for the age and mileage.

There is recall for the handbrake. It may be related and the car brakes all the time which affects the discs. You can ask the dealer whether your car is included in the recall.

ould anyone have any advice on back break disc’s?
I have a 2017 Mazda 6 that was serviced in March for its 12 month service. Only done 10500 miles. 6 weeks later I got a puncture and the repair guy said my disc’s were in a bad way. Brought it back to the dealer and they said it’s wear and tear and they would need changed in another month. Surely this can’t be after only 14 months and 11k miles?? I have attached a picture. Any help appreciated

Well, I've really opened a can of worms here! I rang my local Mazda dealer today and this is what they said. They don't replace the timing chain. At 75,000 miles (for my type of car), they check the tension of the chain and adjust if necessary. However, if the DPS light comes on, then it is advisable to get it checked and possibly changed. They told me that they have never changed a timing chain on my model!! However, as a matter of interest, I asked how much a new chain would cost. They told me that the chain and guides would cost £230 plus the labour at £250 plus vat. So, the final bill would be around £570.
Thanks for your responses.

Its a temperature sensor, if it doesn't work properly, cleaning isn't going to help much as its a metal probe and not something that can become blocked.

Hi folks,

I need to get a Radiator drain plug for a 2007 1.8 petrol (hatch) - can anyone suggest a supplier?

It's the cheap nylon plug that snaps as soon as you look at it... :-\

Any advice would be greatly appreciated & thanks.
