    Re: Is it hard to sell a 1st gen?

    I second the motion.

    Clean the car up real good, and cover as much rust as possible, it will be worth the effort.

    Don't just hand it away if the car runs good.

    Re: Rust Spots on Mazda3 GX - Rail Dust

    Spray it with WD-40? All that does is cover the issue, it does not remove the rail dust or particles.

    Re: Warped rotors?

    Brakes are only warranted for 1yr/24k.

    Sebi - That is an early sign of a warped rotor. It also usually only shows up under hard braking unless its really bad. You could try cleaning the brakes,...
  6. Re: Should I replace the slave cylinder when I replace my clutch?

    Do what? I'm telling him to leave it alone; If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Why are you flushing your brake fluid btw, do you track your car? Otherwise its a waste of money to do so.

    Re: Rust Spots on Mazda3 GX - Rail Dust

    I use Mother's Clay bar kit, it worked wonders. Its practically the same as the Maguires. Although I think Maguires now has a kit with a softer bar.

    Re: Caliper brake service/service in general

    As already mentioned that is normal. After sitting a couple of days you can have a slight rust build-up on the rotors (perfectly normal) and this is what is most likely causing the grinding sound.
