    E Parking Brake

    Iíve just noticed this the past two weeks; when disengaging the E parking brake it feels like the right rear is not engaged or the left side is sticking and not disengaging quick enough. So much so I can feel the rear end shift as the E-brake releases the disc.

    Is this the same for you? Mine is a 2016.5 with 13,000 miles..

    Arrow E Parking Brake

    This's a typical symptom of rear brake / EPB dragging described in this TSB R052/16C and happens very offen including my 2016 CX-5. Both revised rear calipers are needed for replacement with new disc pads and rotors. This's an expensive repair and most dealers simply wave it off claiming this's normal, or saying you need a new set of rear pads. Make sure to take your CX-5 in before your new car warranty expires, and show them the TSB.

    Get it seen to ASAP. Both of my rear wheel brakes have seized ON whilst driving ( at different times) and the only indication was the TPS light came on as the heat caused by the seized brake heated the tyre as the pressure was then too high. Luckily, both times I was near my destination. When stopped the heat from the wheel could be felt 2 feet away along with assorted clanging and pinging noises from the wheel. Called Mazda Assist both times and the car was taken away on a low loader to the dealer. The dealer only replaced the affected parts on each wheel one at a time instead of both wheels at the same time. Luckily still under warranty.

    Make sure to demand BOTH rear calipers getting replaced with the revised ones or the results would be like Jonno21 experienced, happened the 2nd time!

    When I brought in my 2016 CX-5 in for last-chance warranty service, I listed 10 issues with several TSB related but not showing the symptom like the EPB dragging. The tech who was taking care of all issues said my rear brakes were fine, no actions taken. I raised the matter to a master tech and asked him to check the pad wear in person as I believe I eventually would have EPB dragging issue with original calipers which have insufficient accuracy of the screw threads on the rear calipers used for EPB. The master tech double checked and found my outer pads wore more than inner pads on both sides, and agreed to perform the TSB fix with revised calipers along with new pads and rotors.

    So be persistent.

    Yours should be fine. Based on the TSB, the revised rear calipers started putting into the assembly line for CX-5 on September 9, 2016. Since you're in Sweden, check your manufacture date to make sure.
