It's just a steady pull straight up, will release it from those snaps. There it is. One is stuck so we'll just use a trim-panel tool to remove it. Out next step is to work with the side panel here, so we're going to undo this fastener and just pull it out a little bit so we'll get some extra working room to work our wires inside. It might be a good idea to go ahead and remove the phone core support inside as well.

2014 Mazda CX-5 Questions and Answers


  • Trailer Hitch Comparison for a Mazda CX-5 Hidden Hitch # 87623 versus Curt # 13127
  • I have provided a link to the hitches that are confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. When comparing the Hidden Hitch Class III trailer hitch to the Curt # C13127 Class III they are very similar, and the weight capacities are the same. I have included a photo of the two hitches installed, and yes the Hidden Hitch option is recessed a little bit more under the vehicle than the Curt option. This is likely due to the profile of the hitch, and mounting style. The Hidden Hitch option uses...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Best Ground Clearance
  • The rack that would give you the best ground clearance and bike wheel protection would be the Saris Freedom part # SA4414B. This rack has an angled shank that angles up soon after the shank exits the hitch opening. The bikes are also loaded higher and higher as you get further away from the back of the vehicle, whereas the other racks don't have that feature. Where you will see ground clearance issue the most will be the portion of the rack that exits the hitch opening. On the # HR1400...

  • Thule Doubletrack Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • Either the Yakima HoldUpBike Rack # Y02445 or the Thule Doubletrack Bike Rack # TH990XT would work well with the Curt Hitch # C12080 that you referenced. Based on the customer reviews of both racks I think the # TH990XT would be a better pick for you. I attached a review video of this rack being demoed on a very similar CX-5 as yours for you to check out also. With Curt hitches they recommend you use a support strap to stabilize the load when using a non-supported load such as a bike...

  • Recommended Hitch to Carry 4 Bikes on 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • For your 2014 Mazda CX-5 to support the Yakima FullSwing 4-Bike Rack # Y02465 or the Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Carrier # TH9027 you will need a Class III hitch with a 2-inch receiver. The hitch I recommend is Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 87623 which is a custom fit for your vehicle and is the most popular option for the Mazda CX-5. For women's bikes or bikes with sharply angled top tubes or step-through frames, using a frame adapter like part # TH982XT is recommended. The adapter spans...

  • Comparing Thule Helium Aero 3 and Kuat Alpha Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks for a 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • Hands down my favorite bike racks are the Thule Helium Aero series such as # TH9043. Basically, the rack has a great set of features. It has the integrated cable lock, cradles with road-dampening technology, built-in anti rattle and locks, and it weighs only 19-1/2 pounds. The Kuat Alpha, A102-Black, for 2 inch hitches or A102-BLACK-114, for 1-1/4 inch hitches are no longer made but when they were they were excellent racks and weighed just over 14 pounds. If you wanted a rack that would...

  • Is the Saris Freedom 4-Bike Platform Bike Rack a Good Bike Rack
  • Saris makes a good rack and the Freedom SuperClamp # SA4026, is no exception. We only recently started carrying Saris racks which is why you do not see a lot of information presently on our site. It is a newer rack in the Saris lineup coming on the heels of the regular Freedom rack # SA4414B. The main difference is that the Freedom SuperClamp holds the bikes at the wheels which is the best way to carry bikes with carbon frames and/or wheels and bikes with step through frames. Bikes with...

  • Weight of Curt Trailer hitch Mount Cargo Carrier 18153 and 18151
  • Curt trailer hitch mount cargo carrier # C18153 has a shipping weight of 71 pounds. Subtract about 3 pounds for packaging and you are looking at 68 pounds. Carrier # C18151 has a shipping weight of 58 pounds so 55 pounds for the carrier. Someone would have to come along with a couple of wrenches to steel the trailer portion because it swivels up or down on a bolt. But then they would just have this heavy tray to lug around and wouldn't be able to use it in a vehicle because the tray...

  • Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for a 2014 Mazda CX5
  • For a hitch I would go with a Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13127. This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening that has more than enough capacity for your 800 lb camper, but will also give you more future towing options since it has a higher capacity than a 1-1/4 inch hitch and because more hitch accessories are made for 2 inch hitches. I attached an FAQ article on how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount. The correct ball mount is picked out so that the trailer will sit...

  • Capacity of Hitch and Bike Rack for 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • One of the main advantages of a hitch mount rack is the higher possible capacity (trunk mount racks carry a maximum of 3 bikes) while hitch mount racks can accommodate up to 5 bikes. You already touched on the other advantage, the hitch mount rack does not come into contact with the painted finish of the vehicle, therefore the rack cannot dent or otherwise mar the finish. Although the Hidden Hitch Class III hitch you referenced, part # 87623 has a 525 lb tongue weight capacity, you...

  • Availability of Trailer Wiring Harness for 2015 Mazda CX-5
  • Neither Curt nor Tow Ready have done any testing on a 2015 CX-5 as of yet. My Curt representative tells me that the # C56175 Universal Fit wiring harness should work, but they cannot say if the plug and play options are a fit. Test fits should be performed over the next several months.

  • Choosing Between 1-1/4-Inch Class II Hitch and 2-Inch Class III Hitch for 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • The actual weight difference between the three Class III hitches for your CX-5 and the one 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch # C12080 is the same 2-lb difference as between their shipping weights. The weight of the packaging for both hitch classes is essentially identical. A far more important consideration for your application with a 2-inch bike carrier is the hitch's tongue weight capacity, which is 525-lbs for a 2-inch Class III hitch and 300- or 350-lbs for a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch, depending...

  • Why Does Curt Class II Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Mazda CX-5 Require a Stabilization Strap
  • It is Curt's policy, the manufacturer of trailer hitch # C12080, to use the stabilization strap, # 18050, on certain trailer hitches. It affects Curt hitches from Class I to certain Class III hitches. The strap is designed to reduce some of the stress on the hitch. It does work but on some vehicles it is not that easy to find a place to connect it. If you want a Class II hitch and do not want to use a stabilization strap then use Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 36528. I have included links...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • There are several trunk mounted bike racks that are confirmed to fit your 2014 Mazda CX-5. See the link to the right to see them all. The one I like and recommend the most is the Thule Raceway bike rack part # TH9001PRO. What makes this rack far superior to the others is the attachment system. It uses 4 retractable coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle rather than 6 nylon straps like other racks. This makes installation quick and easy and the cables also last longer. The...

  • Adaption a 7-Way Blade Style Connector to a 6-Way Square Connector on a Trailer
  • Using multiple adapters just increases the chance that something could go wrong. The best solution is to use an adapter to go from a 7-Way blade style to the 6-Pole square. To do that though an adapter would have to be fabricated. All you will need is a trailer side 7-Way, # H20042, and a vehicle side 6-Way square. For the 6-Way square you would need # 37995 but only use the vehicle end to wire to the wires on the 7-Way, # H20042. On the 7-Way the wire functions are: White = ground Red...

When installed on the side rails of your CX-5, the crossbar spread (distance between center of front bar and center of rear bar) can be adjusted up to 33 inches, which would accommodate any of Yakima's roof boxes. This being said, given the rather short roof of the vehicle means that even with aftermarket crossbars installed, you...

  • Will the Thule Raceway 2 Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • Generally speaking, using a trunk mount bike rack on a vehicle that has a spoiler can lead to damage to the spoiler if stress is directly on the spoiler. The exceptions are if the spoiler is made of metal or if it has a gap beneath it to allow the straps to bypass the spoiler. Even though the Raceway # TH9001PRO is considered a fit according to the Thule fit guide, based on the vehicle I do not recommend using a trunk mount bike rack.

This will fit your round Yakima crossbars as long as the crossbar spread on your vehicle roof is at least 24 inches. The center posts for this carrier fold down flat when not in use.

First, there were two types of Evolution cargo box. One had just drilled holes for the mounting feet and the other had slots with more adjustability. In either case you will measure from the center of the forward most mounting foot position straight back to the furthest part at the back of the box. Then with the front crossbar as far...

The Pulse L # TH615 does have the length you need without being too long. On the inside the box is 72 inches long, 76 inches long on the outside. Thule does list the box as a fit for your 2014 Mazda CX-5 and it will not interfere with the rear hatch when opened. However,...

  • Will a Trailer LED Light Kit Work with Curt Trailer Wiring Harness 56011 on a 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • Curt trailer wiring harness # C56011 will work great with the LED tail lights in trailer light kit # TLL9RK. The Curt trailer wiring harnesses that require power from the vehicle battery to power the trailer lights tend to dimly light LED trailer tail lights even with the vehicle turned off. However, harness # C56011, is not a powered converter so that problem should not happen at all. I have linked some videos on both the light kit and the trailer wiring harness for your reference.
