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. Temporary spare tires should
NEVER be used for long drives or
extended periods.

WARNING

Do not install the temporary spare tire
on the front wheels (driving wheels):

Driving with the temporary spare tire
on one of the front driving wheels is
dangerous. Handling will be affected.
You could lose control of the vehicle,
especially on ice or snow bound roads,
and have an accident. Move a regular
tire to the front wheel and install the
temporary spare tire to the rear.

CAUTION

¾

When using the temporary spare tire,
driving stability may decrease
compared to when using only the
conventional tire. Drive carefully.

¾

To avoid damage to the temporary
spare tire or to the vehicle, observe
the following precautions:

¾

Do not exceed 80 km/h (50 mph).

¾

Avoid driving over obstacles. Also,
do not drive through an automatic
car wash. This tire's diameter is
smaller than a conventional tire, so
the ground clearance is reduced.

¾

Do not use a tire chain on this tire
because it will not fit properly.

¾

Do not use your temporary spare
tire on any other vehicle, it has
been designed only for your
Mazda.

¾

Use only one temporary spare tire
on your vehicle at the same time.

Changing a Flat Tire

Changing a Flat Tire

NOTE

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

x

Steering becomes difficult.

x

The vehicle begins to vibrate
excessively.

x

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.

If Trouble Arises

Flat Tire

7-7

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

transmission in Park (P), a manual
transmission 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 (page 7-3).

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.

Removing a Flat Tire

WARNING

When jacking-up a vehicle, always
shift the shift lever to 1st or R position
(manual transmission vehicle) or shift
the selector lever to P position
(automatic transmission 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.

1. If your vehicle is equipped with a

wheel cover, pry off the wheel
cover with the beveled end of the

WARNING

Always securely and correctly
tighten the lug nuts:

Improperly or loosely tightened lug
nuts are dangerous. The wheel
could wobble or come off. This
could result in loss of vehicle
control and cause a serious
accident.

Jump-Starting

Jump-Starting

Jump-starting is dangerous if done incorrectly. So follow the procedure carefully. If
you feel unsure about jump-starting, we strongly recommend that you have a
competent service technician do the work.

WARNING

 Follow These Precautions Carefully:

To ensure safe and correct handling of the battery, read the following precautions
carefully before using the battery or inspecting it.

 Keep flames and sparks away from open battery cells and do not allow

metal tools to contact the positive (+) or negative (–) terminal of the battery when
working near a battery. Do not allow the positive (+) terminal to contact the
vehicle body:

Flames and sparks near open battery cells are dangerous. Hydrogen gas, produced
during normal battery operation, could ignite and cause the battery to explode. An
exploding battery can cause serious burns and injuries. Keep all flames including
cigarettes and sparks away from open battery cells.

 Keep all flames and sparks away from open battery cells because hydrogen

gas is produced from open battery cells while charging the battery or adding
battery fluid:

Flames and sparks near open battery cells are dangerous. Hydrogen gas, produced
during normal battery operation, could ignite and cause the battery to explode. An
exploding battery can cause serious burns and injuries. Keep all flames including
cigarettes and sparks away from open battery cells.

Do not jump-start a frozen battery or one with a low fluid level:

Jump-starting a frozen battery or one with a low fluid level is dangerous. It may
rupture or explode, causing serious injury.

If Trouble Arises

Battery Runs Out

7-17

Connect the negative cable to a good ground point away from the battery:

Connecting the end of the second jumper cable to the negative (–) terminal of the
discharged battery is dangerous.
A spark could cause the gas around the battery to explode and injure someone.

Route the jumper cables away from parts that will be moving:

Connecting a jumper cable near or to moving parts (cooling fans, belts) is
dangerous. The cable could get caught when the engine starts and cause serious
injury.

CAUTION

Use only a 12 V booster system. You can damage a 12 V starter, ignition system, and
other electrical parts beyond repair with a 24 V power supply (two 12 V batteries in
series or a 24 V motor generator set).

1. Move the booster vehicle so that its battery is as close as possible to your

vehicle's battery.

2. Make sure that the power such as for the headlights and air conditioner is turned

off.

3. Remove the battery cover.

4. Turn off the booster vehicle's engine and connect the jumper cables in the

following order.
Make sure that the jumper cables are securely connected so that they do not
disconnect due to engine vibrations.
