2011 Mazda Questions and Answers


  • Replacement 3500 Pound Trailer Axle for a Travel Trailer
  • All of the 3500 pound axles that we carry that also have electric brakes are too long for the measurements you have provided. But we do carry just the most popular sizes. One option is to instead use a Timbren axle-less system, # A35RD545E. Or you could visit a local tractor or trailer supply store and order a custom axle to your specifications.

  • Will the Thule Echelon Roof Mount Bike Rack Fit the New Thule AeroBlade Load Bars
  • In order for the Thule Echelon Roof Mount Bike Rack, # TH518, to fit the new Thule AeroBlade bars, you will need the Thule Xadapt9 Aero and Xsporter Load Bar Adapter, # THXADAPT9. I have included a link to the installation details for you.

  • Recommended Aluminum 6-Lug Trailer Wheel & ST225/75R15 Tire for Boat Trailer
  • You can see our range of 6-lug aluminum trailer wheels with ST225/75R15 tires by clicking on the linked page. We offer both pre-mounted radial and bias ply type tires in your size. You can simply click on the preferred type to narrow the products shown to those with radial or bias tires. We also have two available load ranges in this size, Load Range D and Load Range E. It is always a good idea to have some safety margin in your trailer setup so choose tires that offer more weight capacity...

  • Recommend Roof Rack to Mount an Older Thule Weekender Roof Cargo Box On a 2011 Mazda 3 - 5 Door
  • I do have a solution for you to carry your Thule Weeekender roof cargo box on the roof of your 2011 Mazda 3, 5 door, but the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack, part # 59833, is not compatible. The reason why it will not work is because the older model Thule roof cargo boxes are designed to work with square Thule load bars. You are correct, the Rola load bars are too wide to work with cargo box mounting feet. You will need to use the Thule Roof Rack, part # TH460, THLB50, THKIT3069, which features...

  • What Size is the Universal T-Slot in Rola Sport Series Roof Rack
  • I did not have the dimensions of the T-slot available so I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Rola Sport Series Roof Rack, # 59833, to measure it myself. I used a pair of digital dial calipers to take the following measurements. The width at the widest part of the T is 0.8215 inches, a little more than 13/16 of an inch. The width at the most narrow part is 0.315 inches, a little more than 5/16 of an inch. The height from the bottom most part to the top of the bar is 0.3685 inches,...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Mazda Speed 3
  • There is a bike rack solution for your vehicle, but currently, there are no trailer hitches available that will fit a 2011 Mazdaspeed 3. Instead you can use a trunk mounted bike rack. For a 2 bike rack I recommend the Thule Passage, # TH910XT. For a 3 bike rack, I would go with the Thule Gateway 3, # TH9007XT. With either rack you get anti-sway cradles, a bike rack that weighs under 20 pounds, and is among the easiest installation of any trunk mount bike rack. I have included links...

  • Can 2 Kayaks be Carried on a 2011 Mazda 3 With the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59832
  • Carrying 2 Kayaks on the roof of your 2011 Mazda 3 with the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59832, may be possible, but you will need to keep within the capacity of the vehicle roof, see owners manual, and make sure the width of the Kayaks stacked together do not exceed the width of the roof rack. The length of the kayaks may also be an issue you need to take into account. If all of the above conditions are met by your kayaks and vehicle, I would recommend using either the Yakima BigStack,...

  • Do I Need To Use Support Strap To Carry Bike Rack w/ Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24843 on 2011 Mazda 3
  • CURT is the only hitch manufacturer that requires that you use a support strap like the CURT Bike Rack Strap, part # 18050, when carrying a bike rack using their hitch. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24843, would be a great option for a hitch on your 2011 Mazda 3 w/o LED tail lights. All of the hitches we carry are of quality, including Draw-Tite. One reason why the other hitches have a higher price point is that they include a ball mount, pin and clip. The Draw-Tite # 24843 does not...

  • Options for Running the Power Wire for the Tow Ready Custom Fit Wiring # 118520 on a 2011 Mazda CX9
  • The best way to run the power wire for this Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, part # 118520, on your 2011 Mazda CX9 would be to run the wire through either a grommet in the trunk area to the exterior of your vehicle and then along a frame rail avoiding moving and hot parts to prevent cutting or melting the wire. Usually if you look under the carpet that is in the trunk area you will see small black, circular rubber grommets that you can use as access points to the exterior of your CX9. Or...

  • Will the Hidden Hitch Receiver # 87438 Fit a 2011 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring with a Factory Hitch
  • I spoke with my contact at Hidden Hitch, and he said that the factory OEM hitch will have to be removed for the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87438 to be installed on your 2011 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring. He did not think that the factory hitch is welded on, but he was not sure. I would recommend to look under the rear of your vehicle to see if the hitch is bolted on or welded on. I am including links to the installation instructions on the Hidden Hitch and a video of the hitch being installed...

  • Bike Rack Options for a 2010 Mazda 3
  • The Swagman XTC 4 bike rack you currently have is not compatible with the Class I receiver, which is the only receiver available for the 2010 Mazda 3. Due to the size of the vehicle, as well as the rigidity of the area where the hitch attaches to the vehicle, the hitch will only be able to safely accommodate 200 lbs of tongue weight, or downward force. In order to make the 2 inch shank on the bike carrier work with the 1-1/4 inch receiver, an adapter would need to be used, but using...

  • What are the Length of the Crossbars on the Rola Roof Rack # 59833 for a 2011 Mazda 3
  • I pulled the Rola Roof Rack, # 59833, from the warehouse and took the measurements for you. Unfortunately, Rola does not list these measurements because the crossbars come assembled with the feet that attach to the pads on the roof. This roof rack was designed to specifically fit the mounting points on your vehicles roof. The first measurement that I took was from the center of the bolt hole to the center of the bolt hole on the feet for each crossbar. The front crossbar measures approximately...

  • Comparing the Thule T2 and Yakima HoldUp Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks for a 2011 Mazda CX-9
  • Bike racks are not vehicle specific there are just some that vehicle owners purchase more often for certain vehicles than others. Since you have a 2 inch trailer hitch on your 2011 Mazda CX-9, you can use the Yakima HoldUp, # Y02443. The Thule T2, # TH9034XT will also fit. I have linked video reviews of both racks for you. Both racks are rated for 60 pounds per bike. The HoldUp will accept 14 to 29 inch bike wheels. The T2 will accept 20 to 29 inch bike wheels. The T2 will accept bike...

  • Recommended Towing Package for a 2011 Mazda 3 Sedan
  • We have everything you are looking for, but I must warn you that Mazda does not recommend towing with this vehicle, so you would be doing so at your own risk. The other complication is that there is no stated towing capacity for your vehicle because it is not recommended for towing. You will want to be very careful if you choose to tow. For a trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Hitch # 24842. This hitch as a Gross Trailer Weight Capacity of 2,000 lbs. and a Tongue Weight...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Mazda Speed3
  • There are trailer hitches that will fit the 2011 Mazdaspeed 3, but the Draw-Tite # 24842 will not fit. Instead, you can use the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 11383. This hitch comes with a ball mount, hitch pin and clip. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video showing a typical installation. If you plan on doing some towing, for a ball you can use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). For trailer wiring, use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness,...

  • Using # D-192 Dual Hitch Receiver to Carry Bike Rack and Tow Trailer with 2011 Mazda CX7
  • The Curt # D-192 might be an option for you, but I am afraid once you place a ballmount in the rise orientation in the bottom receiver opening, there will not be enough room to install your bike rack. Your best option would probably be a trunk mounted rack like the Thule Raceway, which is available in a 2 bike (# TH9001PRO) or 3 bike (# TH9002PRO) capacity. If you went with a trunk mounted rack, I would recommend using an extra-long ball mount like part # 4285 to provide extra clearance...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for a 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring Edition
  • The appearance package in question includes some additional parts on the exterior that would prevent the Curt trailer hitch # C11028 from being installed. From what I could find, the grand touring edition doesn't have this. But to be sure you may want to inquire with a Mazda dealer. You could also take a look at the picture I have included and if the back of your Miata looks the same then it is likely that the hitch will fit just fine. For installation a trusted mechanic or any place...

  • Rhino Rack Roof Rack Options for 2011 Mazda 3
  • The Rhino Rack Euro-Style roof rack you referenced, consisting of the crossbars/feet # DS118B and the # DK157 clamp kit includes everything necessary to install a square bar roof rack on your 2011 Mazda 3. For a more aerodynamic rack that would cause less wind noise, Rhino Rack offer a rack that uses an aero-style crossbar. The rack would consist of the following parts: Aero crossbar, part # RRVA118B-2 for black or # RRVA118S-2 for silver Roof rack leg kit, # RRRLKVA Clamp kit,...

  • Trailer Harness Wiring Harness Recommendations for a 2011 Mazda CX-7
  • The determining factor for which trailer wiring harness you need is whether or not your vehicle has the towing package. If you do not know if your vehicle has a tow package or not you would need to contact the dealer with the VIN and they could tell you. Another way to tell is to locate the connector that mates with the # 118249 harness and use a circuit tester to test each wire function. If all functions work, left and right stop and turn signals and tail light signals, then the vehicle...

  • Will Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier Part # TH910XT Fit on 2011 Mazda 2 Hatchback
  • The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier Part # TH910XT will fit your 2011 Mazda 2 Hatchback. I have attached the installation instructions and a video link demonstrating the features (of the 2-bike version). If you will be transporting bikes for women or children, or bikes that have alternative style frame construction (with no main horizontal top frame tube) you might benefit from using an adapter bar, such as the Yakima Tube Top, part # Y02531. This device installs between the seat and handlebar...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for Carrying 5 Bikes with a 2011 Mazda CX-9
  • We typically recommend against using a bike adapter for a 1-1/4 inch to allow it to carry a bike rack designed for hitches with 2 inch openings. The reason for this is that it will cut the capacity of the hitch in half and therefore make the bike rack capable of carrying even less weight. This would be counter-productive as it would most likely damage your hitch. You would be better off using a Class II bike rack to transport 4 bikes and then if you need to transport a fifth bike to put...

  • Recommended Hitch Bike Rack for 2011 Mazda Miata
  • A great choice would be the Swagman Titan, part # S63400. The rack features sturdy rubber straps to secure the bikes to the rack, anti-sway cradles that prevent the bikes from swinging back and forth and striking each other or the rear of the vehicle and an integrated cable lock to deter theft. The rack includes an anti-rattle hitch pin, but a locking model # S64029 is recommended. The Titan is suitable for transporting your bikes across the country or to that little park a few blocks away.

  • 2011 Mazda CX-7 Taillights Flicker After Installing Replacement LED-Type Bulbs
  • Both the stop and tail light bulbs used on your 2011 Mazda CX-7 are the 7443 type as you noted. We offer this bulb type in both halogen versions like # P217443R (possibly what you had originally) and in LED types like the Putco # P237443R360. LEDs are very high efficiency lights that can sometimes light up from even the low-level residual current in vehicle or trailer wiring. Putco offers load resistors that will correct the flicker. Use one per bulb. We offer a 2-pack # P230004A-2.

  • Is Stabilizer Strap Needed for Bike Rack with Draw-Tite Class I # 24842 on 2011 Mazda 3 Sedan
  • You are correct. The provisions of the Draw-Tite Class I # 2482 hitch warranty do not require the use of a stabilizing strap for non-trailer loads like a cargo carrier or bike rack. Keep in mind, the hitch manufacturers punch a stop into the receiver tube of a Class I hitch that will prevent the shank of Class II accessory from being used. This is done because a Class I hitch has a limited tongue weight capacity (maximum amount of weight that can be safely suspended from the receiver)...

  • How Do I Run the Battery Lead of My T-One Wiring Harness # 118520 on my 2011 Mazda CX-9
  • I can describe to you how to run the battery lead on this T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 118520, but at this time we do not have a video to show you how to do it. Usually in the floor boards of vehicles there are holes that have rubber grommets in them that you could run wires through. Try looking in the threshold, trunk floor panels and trays or pulling back some of the carpet and looking for a black, circular rubber grommet. You should be able to use a razor or x-acto knife to...

  • Recommendation To Carry 6 Snowboards On Roof Rack
  • My recommendation for you is the Yakima Big PowderHound Roof-Mounted, Locking Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 6 Skis/4 Boards, # Y03082, side by side as you mentioned. With your 64.5 inch crossbars, you will have enough room to mount two of them with a little room to spare. They each measure 30" long x 2-3/4" wide x 6-3/8" tall. The large, push button system makes loading and unloading your gear quick and easy even with gloves or mittens on. I suggest using the Yakima Same Key System...

  • Recommendations to Tow a Trailer Level with a 2011 Mazda 3
  • Brophy ball mount # BM96 has a 5-1/2 inch rise so that will get you 1/2 inch closer. You would not add the height of the ball though because the coupler on the trailer covers the ball so the ball height is a non-factor. The only other thing you can do is lower the height of the trailer. If you do think lowering the trailer in the back is the way to go then you may be able to use an over/under conversion kit if: The trailer leaf spring stack is currently mounted above the axles The...

  • Attaching Footplates For Rhino-Rack Roof Rack To 2011 Mazda CX-9 With Fixed Mounting Holes
  • When you received your installation kit for installing the Rhino-Rack part # RRRS300B, there should be a bag with different footplates in it. You will want to use the footplates that have the larger hole in the middle of the footplate. This allows the screw to drop down a little further and you will be able to tighten the screws to the mounting points on your 2011 Mazda CX-9.

  • I have a solution for you below, but you could go to a local garage and see what they say, more than likely they will not allow it because of liability reasons. The might offer to install it for you at a price. We do offer car service ramps like the Race Ramps # RR-XT-2 or the more economical for occasional use the FloTool # FT11912MI. Your 2011 Mazda CX-9 weighs up to 4,546lbs so you will want to keep this in mind while looking at ramps capacities. Both ramps will work for helping...

  • Recommended Bike Carrier For 2012 Mazda CX-9 With Rear Spoiler
  • The Thule Raceway Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, part # TH9003PRO, is confirmed as a fit for your 2011 Mazda CX-9. We have had customers attach the upper straps through openings between the spoiler and the top of their hatch, but many vehicles do not have that gap. If you are concerned that the weight of the bike rack at 48 lbs combined with the weight of bikes you plan on carrying may be too much then you may want to look at other options for a carrier. Another style bike carrier you...
