    My 2014 mazda 6 GT alternator isn't putting out enough power anymore, so I've been looking to replace it. But I found out that I have regenerative braking (also known as I-loop). Every store, website, and junkyard I've contacted doesn't seem to have one in stock with regenerative braking. So I'm...

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has put a rocker switch board (picture attached) into the dash storage box. Ie. Keeping the box there and making the switch board pop up on a spring loaded hinge so it can be folded away like nothing had been changed. Thanks in advance.

    Hello fellow drivers, I am confused and stuck at the step of wiring as I am no professional. I have contacted Mazda as well to give me advice and they have provided me with a diagram on how to perform the task but it only partially helped. I still can't get the part loose and have been scouring...

    Good evening folks I have a 2016 Mazda 6 and a robust aftermarket audio system installed, line output convertors, amps, speakers, etc. I'm considering upgrading the alternator and was wondering if anyone else had done it and which one they recommend. Also if the job is crazy difficult or not.

    Short version: I want to buy new headlights, and I'd rather not take the front of my car apart to find these part numbers, so I thought I'd check if anybody happens to have that information handy. The car is a 2006 Mazda6 wagon. I don't believe it has fog lights. Long version: my driver-side...
