Battery
WARNING
Wash hands after handling the battery and related accessories:
Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds, chemicals
known to the State of California to cause cancer and reproductive harm.
Read the following precautions carefully before using the battery or inspecting to
ensure safe and correct handling:
Always wear eye protection when working near the battery:
Working without eye protection is dangerous. Battery fluid contains SULFURIC ACID which
could cause blindness if splashed into your eyes. Also, hydrogen gas produced during normal
battery operation, could ignite and cause the battery to explode.
Wear eye protection and protective gloves to prevent contact with battery fluid:
Spilled battery fluid is dangerous.
Battery fluid contains SULFURIC ACID which could cause serious injuries if it gets in eyes, or on
the skin or clothing. If this happens, immediately flush your eyes with water for 15 minutes or
wash your skin thoroughly and get medical attention.
Always keep batteries out of the reach of children:
Allowing children to play near batteries is dangerous. Battery fluid could cause serious injuries
if it gets in the eyes or on the skin.
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.
6-31
Maintenance and Care
Owner Maintenance
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.
NOTE
Before performing battery maintenance, remove the battery cover.
Battery Maintenance
If the vehicle will not be used for an
extended time, disconnect the battery
cables and charge the battery every 6
weeks.
Battery Replacement
Contact an Authorized Mazda Dealer for
battery replacement.
To get the best service from a battery:
Keep it securely mounted.
Keep the top clean and dry.
Keep terminals and connections clean,

Replacing a Wheel
WARNING
Always use wheels of the correct size on
your vehicle:
Using a wrong-sized wheel is dangerous.
Braking and handling could be affected,
leading to loss of control and an accident.
CAUTION
A wrong-sized wheel may adversely affect:
¾ Tire fit
¾ Wheel and bearing life
¾ Ground clearance
¾ Snow-chain clearance
¾ Speedometer calibration
¾ Headlight aim
¾ Bumper height
¾ Tire Pressure Monitoring System*
NOTE
When replacing a wheel, make sure the
new one is the same as the original
factory wheel in diameter, rim width,
and offset (inset/outset).
For details, contact an Authorized
Mazda Dealer.
Proper tire balancing provides the best
riding comfort and helps reduce tread
wear. Out-of-balance tires can cause
vibration and uneven wear, such as
cupping and flat spots.
