Mazda 323 / Familia Factory Service Repair Manual (BJ)
Factory service manual / repair manual for the Mazda 323, also known as the Mazda Familia, built between 1998 and 2003. This manual covers all aspects of vehicle repair and maintenance, along with rebuild guides for engine, gearbox, axles, suspension, steering, brakes, interior components, exterior components, electrical systems and wiring diagrams.
A redesigned eighth generation BJ Familia was introduced on 9 June 1998 and released on 29 September 1998 as a 1999 model. Body styles included a four-door sedan, five-door S-Wagon (sold as the Protegé5 in the United States and Canada, and Astina NU in some Asian countries) and a three-door hatchback. In Japan there was also a traditional five-door Wagon sold, but this car is simply a rebadged Nissan. A 4EC automatic transmission and two five-speed manual transmissions were available. All-wheel drive is optional.
The 1999 BJ platform was updated with a four-door sedan or five-door hatchback chassis based on the larger Mazda Capella and offered with more engine choices. The Japanese Mazda Familia had all-wheel drive as an option. In North America, the ES's engine was still 1.8 liters, but for the eighth generation it was a smaller version of the 626's engine (the FP) rather than the sportier engine shared with the Miata which had been used previously. The rear disc brakes of the ES were downgraded to drums.
