The recall (4306k) is for certain 2006 models only, not the 2007 ("Mazda Motor Corporation has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2006 Mazda5 vehicles produced from April 12, 2005 through February 1, 2006")
Regardless, if they are really having similar issues, the parts are C2Y5-73-300B, and they can be replaced under warranty (if you still have one). Lithium grease works too, worst case scenario. I applied it on my 06 as soon as I got the recall letter and never had that issue during Winter. That until they were replaced during the service appointment, 2-3 months later...

I'll have to remember when I do a test drive to have the guy at the dealer sit in the 3rd row and listen for squeaks.
#75 of 76 power window
Mar 14, 2010 (5:38 pm)
my Mazda5 2006 just came out of warranty (4 year!) and the driver side power window failed to work several times. When is cold (morning) it works fine once the temperature gets around 45 and above fail to work. The symptoms are reproducible. I am happy at lest the windows are up when they failed so far to work. All the other windows work fine. Anybody else noticed or there is a solution around? I am guessing either the switch has some dirt or the power module start to fail. solutions or suggestions are welcome.

I am having trouble figuring out how to make the heat work and noticed that it is only working when we are on the freeway. Can you offer suggestions as to how to set the dials so that we get heat?
I've read the owner's manual and tried the various settings it suggested but the heat does not stay on consistently and cool air blows instead. Just wondering what settings you may have used to get the car to heat up?
