    Slotted discs causing clicking sound, when braking

    Sometimes there is a card flicking sound with d/s. You can read about this from many sources. However a clicking sound might be a different problem. Maybe the wear clip is scraping

    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    It was only a matter of time. Next year car will be lowered and full bolt on and chassis bars

    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    I have a yoke, rudder pdel, radio stack, multi panel, and throttle quadrant. As a commercial pilot I can use it for instrument practice (although I rarely do)

    2013 CX-5 2.0 6spd oil leak

    That type of mess wouldn't come from the ocv. It doesn't spray out to cover the vc like that. That clearly looks like someone wiped oil over the VC (like with a rag after a spill). Unless the oil sheen on the vc is unrelated, the ocv weeps very slightly when it does start

    Bolts but no nuts in engine bay

    Is that car one owner? I can't tell by the garbage picture, no point of reference although that does look like part of the battery in the foreground. It's possible those are studs for heatshields that attach to the fire wall, however due to the perspective it's hard to tell.

    2013 CX-5 2.0 6spd oil leak

    It looks like a noob spilled oil on the valve cover. You can always wash it off with a hose and some spray (or the powerwasher at a self car wash). Put a cotton rag/towel over the alternator if you do that

    Poll: Did you choose the CX-5 over a German SUV?

    Nah, I like Mazda now. At the time I was n a Ford Escape 2007, which was my first car (went from a 2006 escape.) Didn't really know anything about cars and didn't do any of my own maintenance. Next car is going to be a used Mitsubishi Mirage

    Grand Touring - Engine Swap

    Yes they all use the same engine (but it also depends on year). I recommend LKQ it will tell you based on your bin what is available and compatible. Their stuff is warranted and graded. It's unlikely to get a bad part from them. You don't need to flash the ecu, unless you have one of the CD...
