    2004~2008 Mom's '07 airbag module

    So....I've been gone quite a while. Sold my '02 Protege5 six years ago. In retrospect, not the smartest thing I've ever done, but that's not why I'm back here today. My mother happens to have a 2007 Mazda3. Been a great reliable car for her since she bought it new (at my suggestion), and that's...

    Popping the radio fuse

    Got an older aftermarket radio in my P5. Been working fine until last week. Then it just failed to power up. No big deal, I thought since I was ready to upgrade. So I pulled the stereo today. Checked the power leads, both switched and unswitched. The switched one is dead. Check the fuse panel...

    p5 gas saving questions

    Drive with a broken motor mount! I discovered a torn lower mount on mine which prompted me to go a little easier on the revs and up-shifts until I had a chance to replace it. Low and behold, my in town gas mileage jumped from 25 to 31. I'm getting 400 miles to the tank around town! I just...

    A source for all those hard to find fasteners

    I've purchased from them several times, for both late model repairs, and some older restoration projects. Good resource.

    Looking at buying P5, looking for feedback.

    I've had mine since June. After passing over a lot of high mileage examples, I found my 5 spd 2002 in TN with 29K miles on it. I spent some time and money detailing and de-ricing it (ditched the ugly wheels, fart pipe and Altezza tail lights), but now I've got it just the way I want it. I...

    Solution To Flickering Fan Speed 2 Or 3 A/C PART 2

    Just pulled my switch apart today. I was only getting A/C on 1 and 4. Anyway, the connector had overheated and started to melt. Inside of the switch was really carboned up. This ought to be a safety recall. Cleaned all the contacts, and generously applied dielectric grease to the switch...

    FS: 17" Wheels and Tires

    I didn't like the look. Graphite wheels on a metallic black car didn't look good to me. Probably look great on a different color car (red, yellow, white, blue). They have a M+S rating on them, so I guess that makes them "all-season".

    MSP Wheels with 215/45/17

    215-40-17 is right on the money for the factory diameter. A 45 series will be 0.9" taller. I just installed some 215 40 17's (cheapo Nankang clearance priced tires from Discount Tire Direct) on MB Mesh X wheels. Ride is a little jiggly at 35 psi. I might drop a few pounds to smooth it out. I...
