Table of contents A. B. C. D. E. F. Front bumper removal Lower Side Vent Grille Install Lower Center Grille Install Main Grille Install Front bumper Install Side Vent modifications for fog lights A. Front bumper removal. Tools Reqd: ratchet with 8mm and 10mm sockets (extension not required), small flat blade screwdriver, small phillips head screwdriver. Open the hood and prop it up. Remove the four 10mm bolts (see photo) Remove the quick-lock fasteners holding the weather trim piece in place. They are removed using a small Phillips screwdriver. Remove the 4 quick-lock fasteners in the passenger fender wheel (see photo). Using a Phillips head screwdriver, to back the center out (you may need to hold the outer ring to prevent it from turning) then pull the center out and then the outer ring. Repeat this for the driver’s side as well. Pull back the underpinning in the fender wells to locate the 8mm fastener that holds the side markers (orange lenses). Once the fastener is removed, a tab (see sub photo) must be released by pressing it down while pulling the side marker outward. The side marker is then slid to the rear to fully remove. Looking under the front end of the car you will find ten 8mm screws that hold the front bumper to the underpinning (see photo). At this point the front bumper cover is held in place merely by a locating pin that is beneath the trim at the top. Pull the bumper cover away from the fender on both sides at the side markers then proceed to lift the bumper cover upward and forward. At this point if you have fog lamps you will need to remove the wiring connectors. Place the front bumper cover on a padded surface to prevent scratching. You should now have something like this (minus the snazzy new grille).

2004 – 2006 MAZDA3 DESCRIPTION There have been a variety of electrical problems reported where the root cause may be a poorly secured connector, unsecured wire, or bent terminal or pin to the PJB. Many of these problems have occurred after the PJB was removed and reinstalled, as is done for the HVAC diffuser plate or in-cabin filter installation. Examples of these problems include the following: While performing diagnostics, there is no communication with the PJB Door Ajar Light remains on with all of the doors closed Dome light remains on with doors closed or it is inoperative Fog Lights are inoperative A/C not cooling and compressor is inoperative Power door locks are inoperative Turn signals or hazards are inoperative Brake or ABS light remains on with no system problems found Dimmer switch is inoperative Keyless entry is inoperative (with ignition key reminder NOT on with key removed from the ignition). If a vehicle is presenting electrical problems and during diagnosis there are symptoms present that lead you to suspect a poor connection between a wiring harness connector and the PJB, inspect each harness connector and mating terminal on the PJB to determine if they have a proper connection by performing the inspection procedure below. INSPECTION PROCEDURE 1. Record all DTC(s) if any are present. 2. Record all preset radio stations.NOTE: Perform steps 4 and 5 for each of the connectors to the PJB (J-01 – J-06), one at a time, before moving onto step 6.
