    Could somone post a video on safely removing the splashcover on 2012+ model?

    It seems there are bolts and clips - clips are known to break.
    I will be doing crawling under the car.

    I appreciate if someone could post a video on safely removing the splashcover on 2012+ model?
    There is another video where someone did it but his focus was on Tranny stuff - so I needed more clarity. Thanks

    Sorry I was not clear on the splash shield removal process in that video.
    I'd re-shoot that part but darn cold outside for that.
    It is really just a bunch of bolts front and back.
    It is hard to shoot as the car is low to the ground so video end up looking messed up or too close up to makegood sence of it.
    I'll see if I can get access to the lift and take a better video of it.

    I've removed the under cover two or three times now and haven't had any issues with the clips on my 2014MY. I think I used a flat-head screwdriver to pop them off. I don't have pics or videos though.

    Try this Mazda channel on YouTube (several Mz3 videos may help):

    Sure thing. I edited the post to clarify that many of the Mazda3 videos will be especially helpful as Mz5 was based on Mz3.

    Do you use 2.5 ton jack to raise it to go under and work on it?

    Depends on what I need to do. To service the engine and the transmission, I usually just put the vehicle on ramps. So if you are looking to do the ATF change and have access to a set of ramps, forget your jack. If you are rotating tires, working on suspension, etc... that's when jack is more handy.

    No.
    There is a cut out in it for the filter removal. If you want, search and watch a youtube video on the oil change for the 5.
