By o/s/f I assume you mean outside front?
It is a sealed bearing with integarted hub flange on your 3.
You will need to remove the steering knuckle,take the snap ring out and press it from the housing with a shop press.
If you have abs this is critical to get right,the tone ring for the abs sensor is also integrated into the bearing.So,in short,if you don't have tools and experience with this type of repair take it to a pro or it will cost ya.I've had to do both on my 3 and neither were fun.

What model year transmission is compatible with a 2005 Mazda 3 sport


From Wikipedia.. "The Mazda3 or Mazda 3 (known as the Mazda Axela in Japan) is a compact car manufactured in Japan by the Mazda Motor Corporation. It was introduced in 2003 as a 2004 model, replacing the Familia/323/Proteg?. A performance-oriented version of the Mazda3 is marketed as the Mazdaspeed3 in North America, Mazdaspeed Axela in Japan and the Mazda3 MPS in Europe.
A second generation Mazda3 for the 2010 model year was unveiled in late 2008, with the sedan premiering at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the hatchback at the Bologna Auto Show. For the 2012 model year, Mazda began offering the Mazda3 with their newly developed SkyActiv technology, including a more rigid body, a new direct injection engine, and a new 6-speed transmission.[6]
The current third generation was introduced in mid-2013 as a 2014 model." My guess is the transmission from 2004 to 2009 mike be cross compatible. I would go to Autozone and ask or call the parts department at department at a local Madza dealer.

Mazda 3 2004 front end struts shot


front end problems are not very uncommon becuse of the way we drive and where we drive, the front struts take quite a beating on the road thus giving us all the smooth comfortable painless noise less ride !!.

today the actual labor rate is soring and that is the reason for your big bills yet a reasonable price i would pay would be around $90 per side and the part will be around 200 for both front struts thus for a total of $400 for the front look into deals given by most auto speciality shops such as goodyear or pep boys but always ask for them to return your old parts to you this will be a good price around $400 - 450. for the front.

the noise you hear while you turn either to left or to the right while you are driving is bad front wheel bearings see if these are servicable bearings and if they are they can be cleaned and repacked with grease if they are sealed bearings then the bearings have to be replaced.
