Hi Scotty! I have a 2009 Mazda 3 with the 1.6 Z6 engine paired with a manual transmission gearbox. I have gathered everything to change its engine oil except a replacement oil drain washer. I can't seem to find a replacement in any auto parts store where I live. Do you recommend a website, where I can find parts like this, as well as other serviceable OEM parts for my car, like air filter, transmission oi drain plugs and washers, etc. I live in Cyprus/Europe, so a European website would be more convenient if you know of one.

Many thanks!

You don’t have to change that washer. My father has never changed it on any vehicle he’s owned in his 81 years of life and never had a leak. If it bothers you then rub the washer on a flat file or some sandpaper laid on a flat surface and smooth the washer flat again.
