Mazda rock ‘n roll seat

Some Mazda vehicles may exhibit a seat that shakes back and forth and is noisy during braking. This applies to 2004-2011 RX8, 2004-2009 Mazda3, 2006-2013 Mazda5, 2003-2008 Mazda6, 2007-2012 CX-7 and 2007-2013 CX-9 models.

  1. Verify the customer complaint. Also verify that the seat features a pantograph type seat lifter (see callout “A” in Figure 1).
  2. Install three springs to the back of the seat cushion seat pan “C” and pipe frame “B.” Note that the shape of the spring varies depending on the seat type.
