03V206
On certain minivans and passenger vehicles, the socket holder in the fog lights is installed in the lamp casing using pressure. During operation of the fog light, the heat from the bulb can expand the socket holder. The expansion can force the socket holder rearward. After repeatedly being subject to this expansion, if the fog light is also subjected to vibration during vehicle operation, the socket holder with the bulb holder and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light casing. Should this occur, the bulb socket and the harness can drop inside the bumper, and the heat generated by the bulb can cause the bumper to burn.
Dealers will install a spring to prevent the socket holder from separating from the lamp case. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 7, 2003. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

Component not known


00V074
Certain reservoir tank caps on the brake master cylinder were produced with a worn out die and lack ventilation holes. As a result, the pressure in the reservoir tank can drop gradually as the brake pad or shoe wears and ambient temperature drops. Also, the pressure could reach a point where the brake caliper and drum cylinder are pulled back by the vacuum in the reservoir tank when the vehicle is parked for a long time. This could lead to reduced brake effectiveness, which could result in a crash.
Dealers will inspect the reservoir cap and replace it, if necessary. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began during April 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.
