This forum needs a little bit of love so I decided to go ahead and compile a thread with just about anything you can think of doing for your speed3. There's already a section dedicated for Gen1s so this will focus on Gen2s.

I'll be updating this constantly so let me know if you'd like to see something added/something is missing!

Can you specify what link?
Hey MBalik! It's the link in this thread above that says "cabin air filter".

Copying the link it's: http://www.mazdaspeed-diy.com/2012/05/2010-mazda-3-mazdaspeed-3-cabin-air.html

It's probably a typo or something. Other links in the list are opening up just fine.

Meanwhile, I found a couple youtubes and did finally get the filter changes. I simply wasn't pulling hard enough on the first panel to get it to detach. Geez, those old filtered smelled. They weren't even dirty looking, but bitter smelling.

A couple questions if you happen to know:
1) Do you need to have these filters in? I'm thinking of trying to clear out the vents by taking them out and running fresh air through inside. Using filters, tends to trap some smell, then push it back out through the vents.

2) Does anyone sell these shrink wrapped?

Thanks for all the great stuff on this site!
