I took min back to the dealer, the rivet had come out completely, they just re-riveted it.
Being an old school engineering apprentice toolmaker/fitter, I am not keen on pop rivets as a fixing method especially on thin composite material, much prefer a nut and bolt.....still Mazda know best :lol:

Re: Front number plate holder

Perhaps it's meant to be wobbly for pedestrian safety......................Fixing it rigid could be classed as a modification for insurance purposes and perhaps invalidate it? Thank you for pointing out that I am so stupid that I can't tell the difference between something that has been badly fitte...

Front number plate holder

A few members have attached the holder with 6mm bolts, I have been a long time getting round to re re fixing my wobbly holder, but had a quick poke around before I start....I can see a problem getting my hand behind the bumper whilst holding a 6mm nut, did you guys struggle with that or do I have gi...

Front parking sensor's

My front parking sensors were factory fitted, wondered if anyone else has had theirs randomly bleep when stationary,usually at traffic lights with nothing in front or either side.

I had the same warning light come on for half an hour during a two hour trip to Brussels in heavy rain last week.
Mine also came on last week on the motorway in heavy rain, presumed it was condensation or dirt on the screen.

As you all know the rear wiper makes a motor noise when in operation. i find also on speed one the front wiper does the same on speed 2 silent. i have spoken to Mazda and they say it just a cheap unit and all their cars are the same with the same unit.

Re: Rear ended today!!! GRRRR!!!!!

Thanks Mr H, having never been in this situation it's quite strange to look outside and not see the CX-3 sitting there. Something that has allayed my fears of losing my excess (£400) is that I suddenly remembered that I continued the Mazda 'Excess Protection' for up to £500 back in March and found ...

Re: Wiper blades

I highly recommend Denso Hybrid wipers. You can get them from Eurocarparts with 50% off on Wednesday’s and they are original fit on the CX5. They look very similar to the original lobster back design of the original blades. Been a bit of a while since your post anchorman, bit are the Denso blades d...

Re: Unexpected flashers incident.

Have you got a Sport Nav+ with Advanced Keyless function? If so, I presume you've disabled walk-away auto locking, which is why you locked with the door request button (NB. to activate the more secure double- locking you need to press the button twice within 3 seconds). Perhaps something in your po...
