Mazda 3 / Re: Mazda 3 Handbrake Will Not Hold Car On Slight Incline

That doesn't sound right at all. With new discs, pads and cable, you should have a very short pull to get full handbrake. I found this thread that may interest you http://www.mazda3forums.co.uk/index.php?topic=753.0

Mazda 3 / Re: Mazda 3 Handbrake Will Not Hold Car On Slight Incline
« Last post by mnevis on Yesterday at 06:05:43 PM »
New pads and rear discs fitted did not cure the problem of no handbrake.  A new handbrake cable was fitted yesterday 24 April and this cured the problem.  With handbrake on the handbrake lever inside the car is quite high but it works.  I am not a novice driver.  I think the handbrake lever is too high.  I am informed the handbrake is self-adjusting.  This is my only observation.  Presumably if the garage had fitted a new handbrake cable when I first took the car to them 4 weeks ago that would have resolved the matter.   The MOT expired today 25 April.  I took the car to the garage 4 weeks ago knowing the handbrake would fail the MOT and to allow plenty of time for any work to be carried out.  The car passed the MOT today 25 April.   I do not think there is anything particularly unusual about the handbrake components and the way they are put together.   I thank the forum members for their help.

Well not me actually but my wife , but I have to do the technical stuff. Just in the process of acquiring a space saver , jack etc. Picked up the boot infill for the spare yesterday for £40.

We have traded in a much loved Volvo C30 1.6D , unfortunately the D bit was getting a bit costly.

As I’m not a computer wiz I’m somewhat intimidated by all of the gizmos so am learning how to deal with them one at a time. Just discovered why the auto wipers weren’t working , I’d turned them off !

We hope it serves us well for the next few years.

I think it's more likely it's been wired wrong. As it's new, I'd be contacting the supplier.

When you adjust the mirror, does it go in the right direction?

The mirror glass is fine but the entire n/s door mirror assembly works opposite to the o/s door mirror assembly in that when one folds in, the other folds out. There must be a memory somewhere that the 'fold' button has been pressed because no matter what I do I cannot get both to fold in at the same time & both to fold out at the same time.
