Fits perfectly, as you would hope/expect from a Genuine Mazda part.
My biggest challenge was removing the after market fuel filter which had previously been fitted to my car. The inlet pipe on this after market filter was shorter than Mazda OEM, meaning that the 5/16 quick release fuel line tool would not fit between the body of the canister and the fuel line connector.... ....so not such a quick release: https://youtu.be/N0N6GmCTcGU
Worth ordering 2 of the grey fuel line clips too, and a pack of 5 of the black plastic lugs to re-secure the cover, as they tend to be brittle and snap.
Mazda Service Sheet lists replacement interval as 54k miles / 72months, so don’t have to worry about it again for a while!
