Don’t be afraid to work the brakes hard. Friction materials enjoy temperature (I was testing and developing them for 17 years).  If the surface is slightly banded and scored it won’t make much difference to performance but it will respond well to burning the surface off.  If you drive hard (but safely) leaving braking late and bring the speed down to nearly stopped several times or down a big Hill then drive it normally for 10 minutes doing light braking you’ll clean them up.  Don’t drag them though by driving against the brake.  Don’t worry if they smell a bit but don’t have smoke pouring off.

Anchorman - remind me how often you recommend the BG244 treatment. Looking back through my Amazon orders I see I did it in June 2018 which is probably 7000 miles or so ago.

It depends what kind of running you do. On a healthy mix of hills, motorway and some city work, I do mine once a year but if I was doing short trips and often not getting warm I might do 2 or 3 doses. It gets a bit cheaper if you buy multiple packs.  You can’t overdo it even if you did one every couple of tank fulls but it isn’t cheap. It is cheap compared to the price of EGRs and DPFs and it’s not a Mazda thing it’s a modern diesel thing.

Thanks for that  - local garage said similar re the fronts doing all the work and the rears therefore getting the chance to corrode and score. There is a slight judder though, and it does need new pads so am renewing the discs at the same time to be on the safe side. £150 instead of the Mazda dealer's £297. Hopefully the last set of discs I'll put on this car, planning to keep it another 2 years or so.

With the three codes, p0098, p0108, p0101 showing is it likely a faulty MAP sensor?

So found a local guy still working this eve and he plugged it in to a Delphi system for me (€20 well spent)
Came up with codes 108 and 101, map and maf. Suggested possibly de coke intake and egr and dpf delete.

Also found codes

Thank-you BigAl and Anchorman for your quick responses.  I do appreciate your efforts to help, and if I was fitting the Camera myself (and not having the Mazda garage do it, to protect my warranty) I would have found Anchorman's youtube video beyond invaluable.       I've made another 'phone enquiry of my local Mazda dealership and (worringly) still not got a postive answer on the fuse-type used in the internal fuse box (only a  'I'm fairly sure it's ******').  I understand your 'piggy-back' fuse answers, but as I have to order a fuse specific hard-wire kit I will have to await the Mazda UK reply to the query I have sent them.  They were most helpful in taking my query, but it will be forwarded on to the technical bods for the reply.   ::)
