Question about 2005 Mazda Tribute
There are two control knobs on the stereo in this vehicle. The left if pressed, turns on the stereo. If it is turned, it controls the stereo volume. The right control knob if turned controls the tuning for the radio. If it is pushed the stereo display should change to the settings for treble, bass, fade, balance, etc. However when the left knob is pressed it doesn't do anything at all. So, I wondering want the problem is and how I can fix it or do I have to take it in to the dealership for repair. If so how much would the repair bill be. My 2005 Mazda tribute has 99,000 km and I think it has basic warranty until 100,000 here in Canada but am not sure.

you have two choices. either replace the radio. or open the radio up and tighten the 11mm set nut behind the face to restore the operation of the loose knob.

There are two 3/8 inch wide black trim pieces on either side of the radio - look at the sides of the radio and you'll see them. Carefully pry them off and you will see the holes.

Believe it or not this is a very simple problem to solve. The face plate for the center control unit has small black plastic studs with female threaded inserts pressed in them that the radio hed unit is screwed into tho hold the entire unit together. My daughters 04' RX8 display was going on and off when she would hit a bump. I followed instructions of you tube video titled DIY:OEM Radio removal first gen RX8 6mt. It is very detailed and step by step. When you get to the last step which is pulling out the complete unit be careful as this is where I am sure you will find what I did, The face plate will be loose on 1 side or both. On Mine it just was one side and I almost broke the black molded plastic studs on the back of the face unit on the other side. You will see the screws with the inserts still screwed on to them where they have pulled loose from the black studs. I used epoxy to reseat them into the studs, reassembled the unit and reinstalled. I have had no other problems.
