Mazda 6 / Mazda 6 Wheels
« Last Post by J@z on September 18, 2019, 12:19:42 pm »
Can anyone please confirm what the PCD of the wheels on a Mazda 6 is (I've seen 114 and 114.3)?
is this PCD the same on all Mazda 6's of any age?
Also can anyone please advise the Offset (ET)?
Finally, is there enough clearance (on full lock) on an older ('08) Mazda 6 (OEM 225/45-ZR18 tyres) for 225/45-ZR19 tyres off a newer Mazda 6 (I know it will make the speedo underestimate the speed)?

Googling  rear body control module returns these guys:

But as always, it will be cheaper to find the problem before buying parts.

This is not an option to do it by clicking on something.

If you ask an auto electrician will probably do it.

But usually in order to keep things running 24x7, you hardwire stuff to the fusebox with all that this means, e.g.

The mk2 is a bigger car.

So if you try to do the rear seat, it will probably be too big.

For the front you can fit any seats as long as you adjust the base and they do not touch any plastics, etc.

But for any seat, you must find a way to keep the airbags happy.

Hi Guys, further to my earlier post regarding the Christmas tree lights on my dash, it now appears that I have a potential faulty rear body control module, and is going into Mazda next week for a diagnostic check to see whether this is a software issue or I need a new unit.

Firstly has anyone any experience with these as i cant seem to find antything on the forum, and if so do they know where it ois located on my car (Mazda 6 3rd Gen Skyactive 63 plate 2.2 diesel sport nav estate)

secondly, any ideas on price of these units?

many thanks

Hello all.
Could you please tell me if some one fitted seats from mk2 to mk1.
I really like the look of half leather from mk2 but not sure if it will fit.
Thank you.

Both power sockets on my car, power off when the ignition is turned off. I want the one in the center console to stay permanently live.
I've had a look through the manual and I cant see to figure out how to do it.
Any suggestions?

Its a 2010 Mazda 6

Latest Update, Back to Mazda today to check the battery, apparently the battery is fine. they have run diagnostics and despite my dashboard looking like a Christmas Tree, they can not find any faults being thrown up by their diagnostics equipment. Apparently as the faults arent with the components themselves that is lighting up the warning message, its some kind of electrical fault. Its now booked in with a very good, and highly recommended Auto electrician, who doesnt charge the extortionate prices Mazda do. will keep you posted when I get to the bottom of the issue.

Oh dear!

Was it the battery at the end?

I think the dealers charge too much for car batteries and there was something on the news a few days ago about Nissan and Mercedes charging way too much.

I think it was half that price for the quick service shops for my car when I had checked but the third generation battery may be different.

It may need to clean up the opening button. This rubber gets destroyed depending on how you push it in and then gradually water comes in and destroys the contact. As a result, the button opens up the lid.

I think if you try some contact cleaner, you may have some progress and if it works, you just need to find the rubber bit to replace it. I suppose this comes all together from a scrap car or something similar to save money.
