Mazda CX-3: Changing a Flat Tire / Locking Lug Nuts

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

If your vehicle has Mazda optional antitheft wheel lug nuts, each wheel will have one locking lug nut that locks the wheel and tire, and you must use a special key to unlock the locking lug nut. This key is stored in the glove compartment. Register the key and lug nuts with the lock manufacturer by filling out the card provided in the glove compartment and mailing it in the accompanying envelope. If you lose this key, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer or use the lock manufacturer's order form, which is with the registration card.

Accessory wheel locks cannot be used on steel wheels. This includes situations when the spare tire is installed. If the spare tire is installed, one of the original lug nuts (which should still be in the vehicle) must be installed in place of the wheel lock.
