RepairPal Expert Overview:

The float portion of the brake fluid level sensor can be forced of its guide rail during filling of the brake master cylinder reservoir. As a result, the low brake fluid warning indicator may not illuminate when the fluid level is low. As of this time, Mazda has not yet provided a remedy for this campaign. The Mazda recall number is 1203F.

For Models: Mazda MPV, Mazda Mazda6, Mazda Miata MX-5

Electrical & Lights, July 14, 2003

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The heat generated by a fog light bulb can cause the socket holder to be pushed rearward in the light casing. This, in combination with the normal vibration during vehicle operation, can cause the bulb holder to separate from the light casing. Should this occur, the bulb socket and harness can drop inside the bumper and possibly result in the bumper being burned by the hot bulb. Dealers will install a spring to prevent the socket holder from separating from the lamp case. The Mazda recall number is 1103F.
