Mazda 3 front bumper knocked loose

I hit a tub sticking out of the ground with my 2008 8 Mazda 3. It looks like it has gotten unhooked around the front tire on the driver side. Do I have any options? Can I try and get it back into place, or should I take to it to a (screw U) mechanic?

How do I change the entire headlight assembly on a 2008 Mazda CX 9.

There are a few installation bolts that are accessible from the top and side but you will need to remove the entire front bumper to access two of the lower ones. Here are some pics from the factory manual. First shows location of the headlight bolts and fasteners. Others show how to remove the bumper. 10mm socket should handle all the bolts you need to remove. Disconnect the battery prior to starting and headlights off. HID headlight voltage is around 25,000 volts so you want to ensure no power to the system before performing repairs.

My 2006 Chrysler 300 has a knocking on the front right side. It is very loud when you go above 60 miles an hour and especially on right turns.

Sounds like you have a bad tire with a bubble, or a piece of bumper has come loose and is hitting the tire. Check that out.

1996 Mazda MPV 4 WD. Mechanic installed new belts and the temp gauge is not working now. How can I fix this? Loose wire?

Yes the wire must have been knocked off when the mechanic fixed the belt. Look under the hood for temperature sensor. Its on the motor near the front around the area where the thermostat goes. You may find the wire close by and a "bare" terminal to put it on. Otherwise go back to the mechanic and have him put it back on since he knocked it off in the first place!

Rear bumper on mazda mpv

Removal of the rear bumper on an Mazda 2004 to 2006 MPV.
It's afairly simple task: 1) Open the rear hatch or (door) remove the torx screws at the bottom of the weather strip. 2) Remove both tail lights by unscrewing the two phillip screws on each light, once removed the lights pulling toward the side of the van. Let them hang from the wires. You will see a clip (white in color),pry it out from behind the bumper material and go to the next step. 3) Remove three 8mm head screws in each fender well and three plastic clips. Then remove an 8mm screw at the top corner of the bumper against the rear fender. If your car has splash guards remove them as well. 4) Remove the two clips at the bottom of the bumper attached to the under carriage. 5) Pull the bumper toward the back of the vehicle be careful with the tail lights. Remember, they are hanging loose.
And that's it, you have done it.

Slight knocking from off side front ,ive checked all bushes but cant find problem any ideas?

hi dieseldog
im dave
my only sugggestion is try focusing on the left front side of the vehicle instead of looking in the bushes.
now that joke session is over i would raise the car and place it securely on jackstands so both front wheels are off the ground and then put the car in gear.
go to the front and watch the wheels going around look for anything out of kilter.
if it is clicking sound and normally heard in turns then it is likely a bad cv joint.
if it is not i would pay particular attention to the tires looking for a bump on the treadwall of the tire or plys separating metal wires sticking out or a large screw head sticking out/embedded in the treadwall. also check that the sway bar is attached and that the pins where it attaches to the control arm are in good condition.
then check your tie rod ends for play or looseness
