This should have been a recall issue not a wait and see when it fails and hopefully it is outside of our extended warranty period. Maybe just wanting me to come back for that repair when needed. Hope this takes care of the problem! The repair is very simple: replace both blower motor relays in the main fuse box. Mazda refuses to stand behind their product and admit to a design flaw. The part alone is pretty expensive and I don't think the labor charge is low either since it seems like the job is realtively complicated.
Bad transfer case, will be replaced under warranty. The steering is precise and well-weighted. Could be a supplier issue, maybe a second tier supplier part that isn't built to spec. It has never towed anything. The manufacturer was notified and stated that the vehicle was not included in a recall. Had many issues with this vehicle being extremely unsafe in the snow. This is a known issue with the Cx-9 and defective transfer cases.
I was watching him through the glass that they had on the side of the building and i saw exactly what he did. Nothing bad happened to their transmissions. Done Would there be any bad effect on the transfer case if my rear tires are 2mm taller than the front tires? This is the 2nd time it failed; first time was at approx. Up to now everything was running fine. The right rear wheel bearing is going out. However, the splines on the transmission were sheared and that is not covered.
We noticed a burning smell but didn't know what it was. Yet you have on your website that I do so I am trying to get to the bottom of this. I asked the rep at the dealership what the root cause could've been and he stated that based on what the mechanic told him, the transfer case more than likely locked up and broke the transmission spline. The light stays on if there is an error code associated with it. The right rear wheel bearing is going out.
Fortunately I'm still within this but does anyone know if they're replacing this with the same crap part? Pulled to the side of the road, couldn't see anything amiss under the hood. And now the transmission splines are shot. My car is in the shop now and the mechanic is telling me that the transfer case may have caught fire and would not be covered under the extended warranty i have with allstate. I will probably just change it when I have a weekend with more time. To see a review from AustralianCar. Later on I took off from a standstill and the 4wd light flashed and the front wheels spun.
It was covered by Mazda warranty but I got a peak at the cost breakdown. Last week the drive train had some major issues, sounded like loud grinding gears sound going 1-2 mph in 1st gear. Tasca has all of these parts and delivery at less than 700 dollars. This could have been a serious road hazard. Dealer replaced with new transfer case under warranty and now I'm going to change oil every 6,000 miles. About the only time you can really see well is if it's dark outside. What I don't understand is that constantly driving the central shaft is a waste of energy.
Just change the transfer case oil to prevent seizing and you have no worries. While driving various speeds, the contact smelled fumes. Honestly, if you made it to 100k on the vehicle and it had never been replaced, I'd be surprised. There's just no shining a turd. Went to make a left turn and when I took off I head a pop but the car drove like normal so I didnt think anything of it. The rear wheels would no longer drive the car. They finally got it right the third trip down there and had to replace the transfer case.
The contact mentioned that the vehicle was serviced for the lower control arms one day prior to the failure. They have this information but they decided to play ignorant. Brought to my local mechanic who said he was getting fault codes but could not diagnose. At least the ram won't try to shove through the window though. The way this issue has been presented to me, and the reading I have done, it sounds like this is not the first time this has occurred. Three rows of seats are standard.
