Hi there,

Anyone out there with a PDF copy or the service manual for the CX3 or has a Mazda friend who might be able to get a copy?

I'd like to change my (our?) very ordinary horn with a two tone Wolo but it requires removing the front assembly, which I'm not willing to discover on my own how to do.

I did mine too. If you pm me with your email address, I'll send you the instructions for taking the bumper off.

Instrument cluster

I have a rattle somewhere inside the instrument cluster / dash board in my 2016 CX-3. Can you show me how to remove the plastic shroud in order to remove the instrument cluster? Much appreciated.

Like most of the interior trim you just pull it but if you wait until Tuesday I will show you a pdf of exactly where the clips are.

That looks like the real deal to me. By law, the manual has to be made available to third party garages and you will be able to browse it for a fee. Over here I pay €5 (about $5) for an hour or so but finding the link is another matter - it’s pretty well hidden.

Having a book is nice though as you can read the pages quite easily while you work.

Is it sold as a pdf as well ?

Don't really want the hard copy just an indexed pdf.

I still have the 5 volume mazda workshop manuals for the 92 626/MX6 sitting on the shelf

Fairly sure they will sell it on an interactive disc.

Probably same price.

You talking about a Workshop Manual or an Owners Glovebox Manual?

Pardon me if this has been previously discussed and answered.

Where can I find CX-3 Online Parts Diagrams with Part Numbers? Workshop Manual?

What gives? Mazda has gone into hiding? For example:

"Arlington Mazda Parts Store is no longer available. All pending orders will be processed and shipped. If you have any questions, please contact Arlington Mazda Parts at 1-888-483-0643"

Several Toyota and Honda dealers have Parts Department web pages that give ready access.

The problem is that legally, Mazda and all the other manufacturers are obliged to make the information available to third party workshops. Some charge and some don’t or require you to provide evidence of being in the trade. For that reason you usually have to find the Mazda online portal and go through the necessary steps.

You can find quite a few workshop instructions in our technical section.

Thank you Mr. Moderator! "Legally" U.S. or U.K.? :laugh:

I'm new to Mazda, coming from the Honda and Toyota world where the Parts Diagrams and Part Numbers are readily available online. Likewise, the Honda Workshop Manuals, register, pay a 24 hour fee, and download to your heart's delight.

Drove a U.S. Grand Touring yesterday ... nice ... but it's the fit and finish, significantly better than the Hecho in Mexico HR-V, that are swaying me to the Matsuda.

We're off to Portsmouth, NH from Portland, (Maine, not Dorset ;) ) today to see if we prefer the "Ceramic Metallic" over "Crystal White Pearl Mica."

Again, kudos for your efforts and website.

Happy hunting. Keep us informed.

The link for the service manual is dead. Anyone got another one?

Alternately, if somebody can give me a copy, I can host it.
