Re: CX3 Fuel pump recall

Our CX3 is booked in for 5th August for the pump recall - as ihcmazda says above - they mentioned to make sure fuel is low before the job, and also we might be able to smell petrol for a couple of days afterwards...

Re: Concensus on Tyres ?

Re: CX3 Fuel pump recall

I chased up my local dealer about the fuel pump recall - they DO have the pumps now apparently, but are still waiting for "Gaskets" that are also needed for the job.

Re: Concensus on Tyres ?

We also live in a similar rural area as Dogfuzz describes ( although we do head up and down the motorway every so often as well ) so the sidewall strength could be an issue for me as well. The original Bridgestone Turanzas seem to have stood up well to that so far, so i guess thats my dilemma with s...

Ive seen the Michelin Cross Climates mentioned on here before, and that it gives a softer ride than the Turanzas ? I dont actually drive the car and my other half ...

Re: Oil

Been trying to get some Genuine Mazda Petrol Engine oil 5W-30 ( Part No 053005TFE ) but its out of stock at the usual suspects near me.

Dont suppose anyone knows of anywhere they might have some ?

Thanks

Re: CX3 Fuel pump recall

Checked VIN on Mazda site which confirmed my vehicle is included in the recall.

Spoke to main dealer where it has been serviced, he said it would be March/April time as the CX3 is in the " 2nd phase", think he said that MX5 was in 1st phase...

Job takes 1 to 1.5 hours apparently.

Re: CX3 Fuel pump recall

How were you notified of this recall ?

Would the part and fitting be covered by Mazda even if the vehicle is outside of warranty period ?

Thank you.
