Mazda 6 Service Manual: Wheel and tire

WHEEL BALANCE ADJUSTMENT (16 INCH AND 17 INCH ALUMINUM ALLOY WHEEL)

Caution

Adhesive-type Balance Weight (Outer)

1. Remove the old balance weight from the wheel.

2. Remove the double-sided adhesive tape remaining on the wheel, then clean and degrease the bonding area.

3. Set the wheel on a wheel balancer, measure the amount of unbalance and the position with the mode set for knock-type balance weight.

4. Multiply the amount of unbalance by 1.6

to get the balance weight value.

5. Select a balance weight closest to the weight value and attach the balance weight on the position (outer) indicated by the wheel balancer.


Example calculation of balance weight value Indicated amount of unbalance: 23 g {0.81 oz} 23 g {0.81 oz}×1.6 = 36.8 g {1.30 oz} Selected balance weight value: 35 g {1.24 oz}

Note

When selecting a balance weight, select one closest to the calculated value.

Example: 32.4 g {1.14 oz}= 30 g {1.06 oz}, 32.5 g {1.15 oz}= 35 g {1.24 oz}

Caution

6. If attaching 2 balance weights, position them so that each is on either side of the position indicated by the wheel balancer.


Caution

Knock-type Balance Weight (Inner)

1. Measure the amount of unbalance with a wheel balancer.

2. Attach a balance weight corresponding to the measured weight value on the position (inner) indicated by the wheel balancer.


Caution

Remaining Amount of Unbalance Confirmation

1. After installing the outer and inner balance weights, operate the wheel balancer again.

2. Confirm that the remaining unbalance does not exceed followings on either side.
