Want cheese with that whine?

Some 2005-2006 Mazda Tributes equipped with an automatic transaxle may exhibit a driveline whine at 20-45 mph during light acceleration or deceleration. The sound may be more pronounced if the vehicle is equipped with steel wheels.

If the whine noise occurs at the specified speed range of 20-45 mph during light acceleration/deceleration, install revised dampened halfshaft assemblies. The revised front halfshafts are designed to minimize the whine noise. However, a small amount of whine noise may remain after the repair.

The dampened halfshafts will not correct driveline noises below 20 mph or above 45 mph.

LH halfshaft………..P/N ZZC5-25-60X

RH halfshaft……….P/N ZZC5-25-50X
