I was wondering if I got a Takeda cai if the splash shield would be enough for water to not get into it. I have a 2011 mazda 3 s 2.5l.
I have a 2008 Mazda 3 hatchback manual. I’ve been recently having problems with my reverse gear. I noticed that it grinds if I put it in reverse too quickly after pushing down the clutch. However if I push down the clutch and wait a second then put it in reverse then it never grinds. It’s like something is still moving causing it to grind. I have also heard that reverse has no synchro in a lot of cars. Not sure if that is true or not. May explain why reverse is the only one that grinds. I’m not great with cars but if anyone can help to explain what could be happening here, that would be great.
