  1. Re: Amazon sent wrong Continental A/C belt??

    Just to follow up, the Continental 4050272S is the right belt for the car. A bit of a challenge getting it on mind you.
  2. Transmission casing bearing. Am I screwed?

    OK, I replaced my CV axles about 9 months ago and they seemed to have a high frequency vibration in one or both of them. It was very slight but noticeable. They were an off brand; CARDONE and the...
  3. Amazon sent wrong Continental A/C belt??

    I ordered an A/C compressor belt for my 2006 Mazda 3, 2.3L. Amazon sent a Continental 4050272S and it seems REALLY short. Before I start prying and cranking, could somebody confirm that number...

    Re: Bad Brand New CV Axles??

    Rpelich, this is a pretty old post but I just determined that the brand name of the replaced axles is Cardone.

    Flagrum_3, we just had a new set of tires installed and balanced and the problem...

    Re: What adaptors for A/C recharge kit?

    Thanks very much Reddie1337. That's a nice offer but I'm on Vancouver Island! (A bit of a drive). I'll get that new clutch on and see what happens. If the A/C behaves, that will be the end of it....

    Re: What adaptors for A/C recharge kit?

    OK, an update. I took the belts off and the A/C compressor clutch is pooched. The clutch bearing is shot, the "pressure plates" are metal on metal and I think they are gone too. As far as the...

    What adaptors for A/C recharge kit?

    My A/C is hit and miss these days. 2006 Mazda 3 Sport, 2.3l. It will blow nice and cool for 5 minutes and then hot and humid. I expect it's simply low. Are there any tests I should be doing to...

    Re: Bad Brand New CV Axles??

    I just had a new set of tires installed and it's not them. I'm thinking bad CV joint. Rpelich, I didn't get the brand name. I knew they were off brand so I just threw the boxes out. You get what...
  9. Re: What tires do you like for summer? Deals?

    G~MINI, does he do lifetime rotate and balance for that? He blew Fountain Tire out of the water on those Sailuns.
  10. Re: What tires do you like for summer? Deals?

    I cheaped out and went with Sailun Aspire for $116.00 at Fountain tire. Of course it was $667 or something with the other crap. They are super quiet, nice to drive, smooth and give a soft ride. ...
  11. Re: What tires do you like for summer? Deals?

    That DA tire website is a cool place with all those rebates compiled like that. Saves a lot of looking around. Thanks.
  12. What tires do you like for summer? Deals?

    We have winter tires but need a set of summers now. I was using a set of Continental Contiprocontact and liked them. They do have some bad reviews regarding their inability to take a good pothole...

    Re: Fitment question '06 Madza 3

    Just for a follow up, I did mount these tires and had no issues. I really liked them. Quiet, smooth and really responsive. They're worn out though so, back to the hunt and I will go to stock size...

    Bad Brand New CV Axles??

    I got new tires and wanted a balance so the shop said to get new control arms first. When I had them off I decided to replace the CV axles and did. Now, there is a vibration under fairly stiff...

    Re: OOPS, pulled CV joint apart

    OK, I just found a good video online. Clean the joints, re-grease. Get new boots if needed.

    OOPS, pulled CV joint apart

    I'm changing my control arms on my 2006 Mazda 3 Sport GT. Firstly, pain me though it does, I have to admit to making a mistake. I'm sorry. I let the side down, a guy making a mistake. Anyway, I...

    What tires for wet winters?

    I live on Vancouver Island and we get it wet out here for about 4 months. The potential for hydroplaning is always there as water runs across the roads in buckets sometimes. Off ramps seem to be...

    "Won't Start in Park" Remedy.

    I recently did the "won't start in park" remedy to my 06 Mazda 3 sport. It works to a degree. I did this by removing the shifter cowlings, removing the white locking insert and tightening the...

    Pooched 2006 bearing knuckle?

    Righto, I did the bearings in the front end about 5000 km ago. The right one is shot already. Now for a complicating factor, while installing the right one, I pressed the hub into the bearing...

    Re: Fitment question '06 Madza 3

    Thanks for that Sonic. They're free so I think I'll just throw a pair on and see what they look like; look for friction etc. and see how they handle. If they don't work, they don't work.

    Re: Fitment question '06 Madza 3

    I actually meant 225. I'm wondering it that would be too wide for my stock Mazda rims.

    Re: Fitment question '06 Madza 3

    Thanks for that. Would the 224 issue cause me width issues with my stock rims do you suppose?

    Was this a stupid question? I would have expected an answer by now as you guys seem to really know your stuff.
