Part number: 


The sixth generation of the Mazda 323 was available as a hatchback with three doors or five doors, and also as a four-door sedan – and in an example of spectacular inefficiency, none of them shared any body panels. The four-door version of the car was renamed the Mazda Protégé, while the hatchbacks were kepts as the 323. Engines were all four-cylinder units, ranging in size from 1.3 liters up to 1.8. There was however, a turbocharged version that was homologated for rallying purposes. For the seventh generation the car grew in size and spawned a hot MazdaSpeed version. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Mazda repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Mazda 323 repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
