Owners of 2014-2017 Mazda6 and 2013-2016 CX-5 vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission may complain about a vibration that is felt through the floor, seat and/or steering wheel while driving at 25-30 mph.

The vibration may be caused by wear on the inner surface of the tripod joint case (inner side of front drive shaft). To eliminate the concern, a coating has been applied to the inner surfaces of the tripod joint case to improve wear resistance.

If the complaint has been verified, replace the inner joint set for the left and right drive shafts. Always install new clip on the left joint drive shaft. The improved inner joint set for the left side is P/N FTY0-22-620 for all vehicles. P/N for the right side is as follows:

2.0L, A/T, 2WD...........FTY0-22-520

2.0L, A/T, 4WD...........FTY1-22-520

2.5L, A/T, 2WD...........FTY2-22-520

2.5L, A/T, 4WD...........FTY3-22-520
