  1. Front passenger's speaker cutting out in really cold weather

    This morning it was about 27 degrees F when I went to work. I noticed that the front passenger's speaker was cutting in & out and was scratchy when it came on. Probably a connection issue but I...

    Thanks sm1ke. I'll give that a shot (great idea!). You put on your winter tires yet?
  3. 20-inch Wheels Rock Chip. How do I ID correct touch-up paint?

    I was washing my CX-9 today and noticed a small chip in the edge of the wheel, very close to the tire bead. Looks like a small (high velocity) rock hit it. Has anyone tried to match the color of...
  4. 2nd Gen Hood (Bug/Stone) Deflector: US vs Aussie Options

    I've been looking at options for protecting the front of the CX-9 in the hood area. Mazda makes a hood protector/bug deflector which I'm not too crazy about. Here's a link on Amazon. However,...

    Thanks. I was able to find and set this to "High" this morning within the GUI. Weirdly, it was already set to "Low" for the chime volume. And, even more weirdly, when I set it to "High" and tested...

    Headlights "On" Warning Buzzer or Alarm?

    I got out of the CX-9 today, leaving my headlights on by accident. Noticed and reached back in to turn them off. Then it dawned on me: There's no buzzer or alarm that goes off if the lights are on,...

    Mike - Might be worth taking it over to Kennedy Mazda in Conshy, or a dealer close to you, to see what they say. You're probably still under warranty and if it's a known paint issue on their side,...

    You're welcome. One other point to note: If you look at sm1ke's picture (installedsubwoofer.JPG) you can see the wire on the left where it connects to the speaker. I found it easiest to unplug...

    I used approximately 2.5 sq. ft. I bought 10 sq. ft. of material. I may install some around the spare tire where there is no sound deadening material, only the metal from the car body.
    I was...

    Did this mod tonight. Used Noico 80 mil sound deadening mat and poly fill from a pillow. What a great difference in sound. Much tighter bass response. Took about 30 minutes to do the entire...

    I was cleaning my CX and noticed that the rear-wheel well molding in front of the rear tire was a little loose where the stone deflector attaches to the molding. Reaching down, I could move the...
