Are ash clouds emitted from sills?

No, ash clouds are typically emitted from volcanic eruptions rather than sills. Sills are horizontal intrusions of magma that solidify underground and do not typically result in the release of ash clouds.

Which fuse do you need to replace in a Mazda 6 53 plate for the cigarette lighter?

User Avatar

Asked by Joesgirlmillie

Check the fuse panel usually located on the driver side under the dash or in the glovebox. There should be a fuse marked C/lighter or something along those lines.

It is possible it may be under the hood in the Main big fuse box. check these fuses VERY carefully.

How do you change head light?

Asked by Wiki User

This process takes around an hour and a half. I recommend you doing it your self as the dealer quoted me hundreds with time involved. Lexus made these cars so they make it so you bring it in to the shop! You need these tools: screwdriver, socket wrench, and strong hands. You will need to first dissemble the battery to get your hand behind the headlamp and twist the two prongs and pull out. The front engine plastic housing has to be removed and a safety bar. Remember not to touch your new headlamp bulbs or else it will limit there life span. It's simply easy once you have your hand behind and twisting the plastic prong behind the light!

How do you remove the intake manifold on a Mazda 6 4cylinder 2.3L?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

with some patience and small hands you can do it. Removal is always harder then installation as you get familiar with the procedure. If you need help i can do a step by step, i just finished fabricating a new hose for a pcv and reinstalling it. You can not get the molded hose from an auto parts store, i used 2 90 degree elbows and 3 pieces of hose, this makes the hose more durable with less span between connections and less chance of another crack in it.

Remember,

1: unplug negative batter cable.

2: remove throttle body for easier removal of intake manifold, 2 water hoses on throttle body, one sensor plug , 4 bolts. And tube from filter box 2 Phillips screws loosened. vacuum hose on that tube from filter box also. And a sensor to unplug on that tube (maf sensor).

3: disconnect 2 sensors on intake manifold on the top front, disconnect 2 sensors plugs on bottom right side of manifold, there are 2 hoses above the two bottom sensors you need to unplug, tricky part is removing the wire harness from the manifold, very tight space there are two connected to the front of manifold, and 3 on the left side.

4: remove 2 bolts holding dipstick tube to manifold.

5: now everything should be out of the way or movable to get the manifold out. There are 8 bolts holding it on, 4 on the top, one you have to get to under the car, one by the power steering pump(left side lower), one through a hole in the middle of the manifold (the hardest one i think) and one below the area where the throttle body was unbolted. I also removed the retainers on the front of the car holding the radiator and fans in place to be able to move them back to get it out, you may need someone to push the radiator back as you maneuver the manifold out, there is a vacuum hose on the backside of the manifold that goes to the pcv valve, it is very hard to get back on also when u reinstall. Tight space to put it back on. I tilted the right side up to get it clear that pipe going into it then lifted at an angle to get the tabs past the fuel rail and it was out, took me about 3 hours to remove, clean it all up and 1 1/2 hours to reinstall, I'm a little slow but i got it done.

When the manifold is out i used 5 old rags and stuffed them into the holes so a catastrophic accident don't happen. Make sure the areas are clean and no sand or dirt may be there.

I believe that is all of it, if you get stuck you can email me and i will try to get back to you fast if possible.

How do you change fuel filter on a 2004 Mazda 6?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

apparently it's in the tank, but if you jostle the tabs under the back seat and lift it up there is a panel. Open the panel, there is a fuel line and cord attached to some other thing. Those can be disconnected and set to the side, (that's another issue to google) from there

you need a special mazda tool to unscrew the circle part or something. I don't know, they make it so you have to buy all these tools to do anything. I put something that I don't think was gas in my gastank. I'm trying to drain the fuel line from the engine area and might need to replace the filter myself.

I hate everything.

What might cause a low mileage 2005 Mazda 6 to squeak near the left front wheel while backing up and the steering wheel is turned to the left?

User Avatar

Asked by Jsw77

I have a 2003 Mazda 6 with approx 80k miles. This noise confounded me for months. On ours, it showed up when pulling into or out of our driveway (forward or reverse, always with the wheels turned hard left).

It is NOT the CV joint in the axle. It is NOT anything rubbing in the fender well. It is NOT the wheel bearings. I finally found it after we had the brakes done.

After having the rotors turned and pads replaced, the noise went away for about a month. I thought we had licked it, but it came back.

Then I found it. There is a thin brass (or maybe copper??) bracket that fits between the brake shoes and the caliper assembly. Supposedly this absorbs vibration and prevents the caliper assembly from wearing out around the brake shoes. It is held in place by small tabs that are supposed to hug both sides of the caliper assembly. Those tabs are very weak and as the brake shoes wear out and move closer to the rotor, the bracket tends to move with them (instead of staying in place on the assembly). So you end up with the thin, brass plate scrubbing against the rotor just like the wear warning tab would (and makes the exact same noise). Since it is such a close clearance, you only hear the noise when the wheel is torqued, but it will get more common as the problem goes on.

The fix is easy. Remove the brake shoes, move the bracket back into it's correct place, and bend the retaining tabs back down. (While I had it apart, I went ahead and trimmed down the brass with a Dremmel so it would have more room to shift without rubbing the rotor.)

It seems that getting new pads does not fix the problem because you don't get a new bracket with the pads. You buy some time because the new pads are thicker, but the noise will come back as the pads wear down.

--

I honestly wouldn't know, but mine did the same thing then at about 30,000 miles it stopped and hasn't ever happened again, but use to do it all the time at about 20-28,000 miles wierd huh

You may have a broken cv joint i had the same problem in one of my old cars. behind the brake assembly theres a rubber boot with a rod coming out, if that boot tears and dust gets inside it ruins the ball bearing joint..

Is anyone else having problems with their 03 Mazda 6 Radio Display If so do you know how to fix it?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Answer

its easy just press the display in the right spot and the display will be viewed normally that is until you hit the next bump in the road.

OR

I removed the display. Start from the cup holders and work your way up through the shifter and the CD Player/Radiozperiodz When you remove the Display unit you will need to remove the casing so that you expose the internal working like the green board and such. On the bottom you will see a ton of thin metal strands which connect to the green board. THOSE ARE NOT MAKING GOOD CONNECTIONS. Get a soldering iron and and soldering wire and get to work. Mine was flickering for quite some time and I finally got sick of it. This is way better than buying a new one for $250.

How do you remove a rusted nut from the neutral safety switch on a Mazda 6 2005?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

First, you want to soak the nut with a penetrating lubricant like PB Blaster which you can get at most hardware/automotive stores. Depending on how rusted it is, it may take several applications, letting it penetrate for at least 30 minutes each time. Let it dry well before attempting to remove to avoid stripping the nut. To remove the nut, it would be best to use an impact wrench if you have access to one. This is the best type of tool to break loose a tough nut or bolt. Using hand tools often results in stripping of the nut. However, if you don't have an impact wrench, a regular socket wrench can often work quite well by mimicing the impact motion by applying quick, strong force in short bursts to the nut. Applying continuous force is more likely to strip the nut which you don't want.

Hope this is helpful.

How do you change the rear brakes on a 2004 Mazda 3?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I'll assume you know how to remove the tire, or please stop now. You will need a 7mm hex wrench, 6" C-Clamp, hammer, long nose pliers and a screwdriver. Eye protection and work gloves are suggested for your safety as there is a lot of dust and debris.

Start by using either the pliers or screwdriver to remove the retainer wire from the caliper. This should pop right out, and it is a good idea to wear eye protection because of it. Now reach around the caliper to feel and remove the plastic caps covering the hex head slide bolts (facing the inner wheel well). Use your 7mm hex wrench and loosen both slide bolts and pull out enough to clear the caliper bracket. Use the hammer to tap the caliper away from the bracket and worn pads. Remove old pads from bracket. Now here comes the tricky part no one ever seems to figure out: Compressing the piston enough so to slide the caliper back over the rotor with much fatter new pads. First, pop the hood and remove the brake fluid reservoir cap to make compression easier. Then, (this is the tricky part) pull up the parking brake lever. Using the long nose pliers, insert the end of the pliers into the two holes at the end of the piston in order to turn the piston clockwise many times.

Release the brake and use your 6" C-Clamp to depress the piston all the way until flush with the boot. To make depression easier, you will want to make sure the end of the closing screw is on top of the piston so as you turn to close the C-Clamp, it will also turn the piston clockwise. You may need to alternate between the pliers and the C-Clamp until piston is fully recessed to your satisfaction. If the piston is recessed enough, go ahead and install the first brake pad on the piston. This pad has a set of 3 wires on the reverse side that clips on the piston. You can easily accomplish the pad attachment by sliding the bottom clipping wire of the pad onto groove of the piston and then pushing the pad to one side (left or right whichever is easier) to allow the left or right wire to catch. Once it catches into the groove, push the pad in the opposite direction until the last clip catches into the piston groove. You may need to adjust the clipping wires so to make them catch more readily using a flat head screwdriver or pliers. Once installed, insert the other pad.

NOTE: If you find that you depressed the piston so much that you can't get the wires to clip onto it, you can use the long nose pliers to rotate the piston counter-clockwise to raise it a bit.

Check to see if there is enough clearance between the pads to clear the rotor. You should not have to use any kind of force to slide the caliper into place, so to not damage your new pads.If not, repeat the piston depression process using the pliers and/or C-Clamp.

Slide the caliper over the rotor until the slide bolts are aligned with insertion holes. Again, use your 7mm hex wrench to secure the bolts. Replace retaining wire to the front of the caliper over bracket, and snap caps back over the slide bolts. Don't forget the tires and to tighten the cap back on to the reservoir. Good Luck! This info will make this job a snap (20 minutes per tire if all goes well). http://wiki.answers.com/Q/User:Gtducati edited content for safety concerns.

How can you turn on passenger airbag in mazda6?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The passenger seat has a weight sensor which automatically turns the airbag 'on' at a certain weight. If there isn't enough weight in the seat, the system determines that there is no passenger in the seat and leaves the airbag OFF.

The weight sensor can also cause the passenger airbag to deploy with less force if it determines the passenger is small and might be injured by a full-force deployment.

The fuse block under the hood needs to be raised. There are four tabs around the perimeter of the block. There are 2 small bolts that hold the fuse in place. Remove the 10mm bolts then simply pull out the fuse and replace it, reinstall the bolts and place the fuse block back in place. There are sliding guides that will align the block.

What is an ECT Sensor?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The ECT sensor is usually the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. Most modern cars have such a sensor to advise the ECM/PCM about the operating temperature of the engine. Ford also uses a Cylinder Head Temperature sensor to detect overheating condition in the case of lost coolant..... The ETC, via the PCM, also controls the cold-start quantity of fuel required (given a specific temperature);.. in other words, it acts like a choke operation in cold weather!... I f malfubctioning, can cause prolonged cranking before engine start in cold weather.
