We got the brake pads and rotors at our local O’reilly Auto Parts Store.
Just a quick video showing how to replace the rear brake pads & Brake Rotors on a 2014 Mazda 3 2.5L Japan Built. You will need to check your vin number to determine if your vehicle is built in Mexico or not. Thankfully our local O’reilly Auto Parts Store was able to look it up for us and determine which parts we needed.
A large screwdriver or prybar
13 mm Wrench or socket with ratchet and/or breaker bar
14 mm socket or wrench with breaker bar or impact wrench
brake caliper grease
wire brush or drill with wire brush attachment (wear safety glasses)
Torque specs I found online:
Caliper slide pin bolts 17-19 ft lbs
Caliper Support Bracket bolts 38-48 ft lbs.
I also did the front brakes on this same vehicle. Here’s a video of that if you need it: https://youtu.be/IMdk7ionE3w
Thanks for watching!
