    Mazda 3 Alternative Gear Oil

    Hi Treks, I can say accessibility as Mazda gear oils only available in Mazda/ Galadari agency. Galadari garage & their repair agency are always busy and they required to leave the car for the whole day with them just to change the gear oils.
  3. Dear Mates, Any suggestions for alternative gear oil for Mazda 3? Did someone from Mazda 3 owners here change gear oils from other garage? Thanks

    Seat Covers for Pajero

    Custom made you can try in Damascus Street, Dubai, there's about 4-6 shops if your heading to Sharjah it was on the Right Side (from Spinneys/ Snow white Garments till next Traffic Signal) they're doing a custom seat cover & floor mats which as per texture & quality that might fit on your budget but as Danny said it will cost you 600-800 or till 1000 I can say, which I guess more worth to have than the ready made which cost you around 600.
  5. Hi Rahim, Till now I did not try to work on this one, but last time I visit some of the spare parts store in Al Quasis and look for the cabin air cleaner element for old pajero model, they told me that its not available. Thanks

    want to buy Mazda 3

    Agree with shadow79, its a strong car and reliable car as well. I have mazda 3 (2012) and Im using it for my daily drive to work-home Abu dhabi- Dubai everyday. for straight 4.5 years. What major issue I found with this car was, about the transmission, It's gave a jerk while the gear shifts from higher gear to the lower gear (I guess it's happen due to my way of driving before which sometimes I do Engine break & setting it to manual transmission while overtaking). It was fixed at least by changing one sensor on the transmission & changing the gear oil. (note that original gear oil is only available from them). Its a good car just ensure that it has taking care by the first owner & well maintained as well.
  7. Hi Rahim, Didn't have time yet to work on that, I'll plan to do it on my leave this coming March. I'll update you with that. Regards
  8. Thanks Rahim for your advise and sharing this video.
  9. Dear Mates, Is it true that Pajero 2012 model doesn't have cabin air filter?, I have a used one and I requested Al Habtoor to change it but they said it doesn't have cabin filter, but from the internet it says that it has to be change at least every 6 months. I am complaining with them the bad smell of the rear fan everytime I switched it as well. Might you can help me to get rid of it, I tried SONAX the one available from Zoom/ ENOC but still the smell was their. Thanks in Advance.

    Which is the best tire these day?

    On my 2012 Sedan car since new, I tried at least 3 brand of tires already they are: 1) TOYO- Original tires from purchased (2012) (Tire Rotation done regularly) My Review: Good road handling but easy to wear & road noise/ noisy tires 2) Hankook Ventus- Installed around Oct. 2013 (Tire Rotation done regularly) My Review:Comfort, Quiet but less response on breaking 3) Nitto- Installed around July 2015 (Tire Rotation done regularly) My Review: Good grip on the road & Handling, little bit noisy on the road Next week, again I am planning to replace my Nitto tire as the tire noise was getting more day by day, I am using my Sedan car for my daily drive from Dubai (Home) to Abu Dhabi (Office), so I am little bit more concern on the tire noise and road handling, I heard that General Tires are good (German Technology) price is cheap also or otherwise I will might consider Hankook Optimo which they said they were both quiet on the road and good grip on road handling as well.
