What have you done to your Mazda5 today?

Those cv shafts should just pop rite out the trans with a pry bar. Then you need to undo it from the hub. Then once off you must release the retainer that holds the cup to the shaft in order to replace the boot. Then reverse to put it all back. I hope that helps a little

More info than I had this morning, thanks! :)

I tend to grumble, but it is interesting to learn about new-to-me technology.

Does the p/s axle disconnect from the intermediate shaft (and the intermediate shaft from the diff) in the same way?

After stripping the clear coat that the Rustoleum peel coat did not pick up. I painted my wheels gold with VHT wheel paint. Center caps are black. Then I will replace lugs with black lugs.

Hey that looks great! I was thinking of painting my 97 Eclipse wheels this color with vht as all my engine stuff is gold as well but wasn't sure how it would look dry. Thanks for the pics and good job on them!

Anybody know what kind of spoiler (or diffuser) this is called. I would love to put one on my ‘13 5

Ordered parts-lots of parts for my 5 with 152,000 miles on the odometer. RF strut, bellow and mount. L fog lamp, belts, cabin filter & blower motor, driver's window actuator, LF inner fender, belly pan. Still runs and shifts good- I keep an eye on the fluids, as it leaks a little oil. Is it the best car I've had? Not by a long shot- but it gets me around.
 
Replaced the passenger side motor mount today. I’m trying to track down some vibration at idle when in gear (goes away in neutral). Vibration is reduced with the new mount, but not eliminated. It’s fine for now, but I may replace the transmission mount in the future.
The transmission mount on my 2012 Mazda 5 is the source of my engine shake while in gear. I haven't done it yet but there are good videos on YouTube of how to do it.
