Question about Mazda Protege

Open Question

I need a front/rear end suspension diagram for - 2002 Mazda Protege5... I took my car in to get my tires rotated and they wouldn't do it because they said that my front end suspension was such a mess and that my rear tires were cupped. So it looks like I'll be working on my car. In fact I will take any kind of repair info/diagrams I can get my hands on. Thanks in advance for your help.

SOURCE: rear wheel alignment

first of all firestone are rip off artist. you got suckered. next there are struts on the back and yes you should align them however it has more to do with how the tire wears than a steering issue. with only 12,000 miles I seriously doubt there would have been a problem. my solution would have been if one of the front tires was bad i would have replaced it then took the 2 back tires and put them on front and the new tire and other front tire on the back and no alignment would have been needed unless your girlfriend would have complained about it tracking one way or the other. feel free to click on my user tab anytime you need help.... please rate this.........thanks

cupping is caused by poorly acting shockabsorbers probably have leaking from the shock struts and may need replacement. sounds a bit early for wear at 50k

2007 ford sport trac at high speeds it feels like my front end is walking all over the road but no shimmy in my steering wheel and goes straight tires look ok rotated tires problem still there.


could be from worn tie rod ends, suspension ball joints , worn suspension rubbers and failing shock absorbers
take it to an accredited suspension service center for a complete check including the rear end as the front floating sensation could be from a problem rear end suspension set up and shock absorbers
I am well aware that every tire shop says rotate tires but in reality you just move a problem tire from one corner to the other, fail to see a wear problem develop in the tires ( indicates alignment or tire case problem) and costs 4 tires at a time instead of 2 which is not really economical as well
consider this front drive cars wear out front tires at the rate of 3 to rear tires 1 and I think you get the picture (rear drive cars rear tires 2 to front 1) or if there is a case problem with a tire it is lost in the rotation process and becomes dangerous on the road

Mazda 3 steering problem. will not hold straigth line


Did you hit a pot hole, bang the curb, or replace any tires
recently? I've had new tires to cause pulling left or right
and imprecise steering. If the car pulls to one side, try
swapping the front tires and see if the problem follows
the tire. Make sure tires can rotate in both directions,
some only rotate one way. You may need an alignment,
or something wrong with the suspension. Either case
a repair shop has to deal with it.

How do you remove left rear axle shaft 2002 camaro


you need to remove the rear cover from the rear end. raise the rear end off the ground and block the front tires. rotate the rear wheel while in neutral till you see the small bolt usually an 8mm bolt. remove this bolt and rotate slightly to pull the rod out of center its rather large and you should see it as you rotate the tire to line up to remove the small bolt. after removing the big rod push in on the axle shaft from the tire end a retainer clip will fall out then you can pull out the shaft reassemble in reverse order. good luck

Front tires wearing faster than should.


uneven wear- on one side of each tire- need front end alignment.
wearing in center- over inflated tires.

If they seem to wear evenly but quicker than they should, rotate with the rear so they all wear at same time.

I Had the tires rotated on my 2008 mazda cx9 at 13,000 miles in our local shop here,then i noticed a humming sound coming from front of vehicle and only when it approaches 50 to 55 mph,could it possibly be...


The noise is most likely caused by the different wear pattern on the tire that came from the rear of the car. The difference in the alignment between the front and rear suspension systems causes the tires to wear accordingly. It will take some time for the tires to wear in to their new environment. The noise should go away gradually. You should also check your tire pressure to make sure you don't have an improperly inflated tire.

Rear view mirror


Has the mirror previously been capable of providing a view of the left lane?
If it did not, the "clicking" sound is simply an indicator informing the user that the angle limit has been reached, the mirror will not travel any further.
Simply purchase a pair of stick on Convex mirrors, they are about 1.5" in diameter,they do the job perfectly. I know this because I've got them on my Protege5 mirrors.

At 1500 miles the front end was in need of alignment and the outside edge of the front tires were wearing down excessively.We took to the dealer and they aligned it When I went to rotate the tires at 5500...


once a were pattern is worn in tire s unless you rotate tires to the rear they will keep wearing you should rotate your tires every oil change especially if you do alot of around town driving i am willing to bet you that good year lied to you about the alignment i am sure the dealer put it into spec the first time you just need to rotate them a little more often
