Mazda CX-3: Spare Tire and Tool Storage / Changing a Flat Tire

Mazda CX-3 (2015-2022) Owner's Manual / If Trouble Arises / Spare Tire and Tool Storage / Changing a Flat Tire

NOTE

If the following occurs while driving, it could indicate a flat tire.

  • Steering becomes difficult.
  • The vehicle begins to vibrate excessively.
  • The vehicle pulls in one direction.

If you have a flat tire, drive slowly to a level spot that is well off the road and out of the way of traffic to change the tire. Stopping in traffic or on the shoulder of a busy road is dangerous.

WARNING

Be sure to follow the directions for changing a tire: Changing a tire is dangerous if not done properly. The vehicle can slip off the jack and seriously injure someone.

No person should place any portion of their body under a vehicle that is supported by a jack.

Never allow anyone inside a vehicle supported by a jack: Allowing someone to remain in a vehicle supported by a jack is dangerous. The occupant could cause the vehicle to fall resulting in serious injury.

NOTE

Make sure the jack is well lubricated before using it.

  1. Park on a hard, level surface off the right-of-way and firmly set the parking brake.
  2. Put a vehicle with an automatic transaxle in Park (P), a manual transaxle in Reverse (R) or 1, and turn off the engine.
  3. Turn on the hazard warning flasher.
  4. Have passengers get out of the vehicle and away from the vehicle and traffic.
  5. Remove any luggage, the jack, tools, and spare tire.
  6. Block the wheel diagonally opposite the flat tire. When blocking a wheel, place a tire block both in front and behind the tire.

NOTE

When blocking a tire, use rocks or wood blocks of sufficient size if possible to hold the tire in place.

Spare Tire

Your Mazda has a temporary spare tire. The temporary spare tire is lighter and smaller than a conventional tire, and is designed only for emergency use and should be used only for VERY short periods...

Removing a Flat Tire

WARNING When jacking-up a vehicle, always shift the shift lever to 1st or R position (manual transaxle vehicle) or shift the selector lever to P position (automatic transaxle vehicle), apply the parking brake, and place wheel blocks in the position diagonally opposed to the jack: Changing a flat tire without using wheel blocks is dangerous because the vehicle may move and fall off the jack even with the shift lever in 1st or R position, or the selector lever is in P position, which could result in an accident...
