Laser cut 11 gauge aluminum adds some much needed protection without adding unnecessary weight.
Add to wish list

Add some protection for your CX-5 with the CorkSport Aluminum Skid Plate! The OEM under tray is plastic and is prone to breakage, especially if you take your CX-5 off-roading or have it lowered. They also offer very little in the way of protection should you encounter rocks or other road debris. The CS skid tray is a direct OEM replacement that remedies these issues so you don’t need to worry about damaging your CX-5, no matter how you use it! Check out the video and info below for full details.#ZoomZoom!

The CorkSport Advantage

Mazda CX5 Aluminum Skid Tray

Precision Fitment:

The CorkSport Skidtray was CAD designed to directly bolt into the OEM locations with no need for drilling, trimming, or struggling with installation. We specifically designed it for the KF CX5, keeping the OEM two-piece design and an easy access panel for oil changes. There is even some adjustability to the skid plate, to account for any small variations in the OEM plastic bumpers!

Cx-5 Turbo Skidtray Replacement

Protection in all Environments:

The OEM splash shield works well until you start doing more with your CX-5 than running to the grocery store. The CS skid plate will offer better protection without the fear of plastic cracking with the slightest hit. Whether you plan on taking your CX5 camping on rocky forest roads, driving through snow and ice, or taking your lowered CX-5 to a show, the CorkSport Skid Plate will be protecting your engine and other under hood components.

2nd Gen Cx5 Splash Tray

Materials & Manufacturing:

The CorkSport Aluminum Skid Tray is laser cut from 11 gauge (0.09”) aluminum and then precision formed for an easy install on your CX-5. Aluminum offers protection from rocks and road debris while minimizing added weight. While it seems thin, we have seen these skid plates take an impressive beating over the years on the Mazda 3! All hardware is included for installation, using stainless steel button head bolts to prevent corrosion and potential snags. We also use Torx screws on the oil access cover to ensure the screws heads will not strip after repeated oil changes!

How to install a repalcement plastic under tray on a Cx5

After the plastic belly pan on my previous Mazda3 was obliterated by a truck tire tread on the highway, I decided to get a Corksport aluminum belly pan once I traded in for a CX-5.

While I work at a custom metal fabrication shop, I figured ~$270 was fair for a proven design and I wouldn’t have to throw my car up on a hoist to take measurements. Living up in Canada, the total after shipping, border fees, taxes and exchange came to $530 CDN ($390 USD), which was kind of steep, but I understand that those additional costs are beyond Corksport’s control. I just wish they had a Canadian distributor to help decrease those costs.

I elected to modify the belly pan slightly before installation, in the hopes of making it last longer and improve serviceability. I radiused the sharp inside corners, especially near bends, to decrease stress concentrations since aluminum fatigues and could start tearing over time. I also gave the belly pan a coat of aerosol truck bed liner to cover the bare aluminum and prevent corrosion. I bought stainless steel fasteners to replace all the OEM steel fasteners I was expected to reuse (to Corksport’s credit, all their new hardware was stainless steel). Finally, I chose to drill out one of the threaded drain cover holes and loosely install a stainless steel bolt with a nyloc nut. This allows me to swivel the drain cover out of the way for service as Corksport intended, but I won’t have to fear the small machine screws would work their way out due to vibrations and cause the cover to fall off on the highway.

Installation of the belly pan was a breeze, thanks to the use of my dad’s hoist and Corksport’s great colour instructions. The cover fit great and now I feel more secure pushing through snow and driving on the highway. If I could offer any suggestions for Corksport, I’d recommend they add in some radii to their laser cut file for the belly pan to decrease stress concentrations and throw in complete stainless steel hardware, which should only add about $5 to the price.
Drive with peace of mind knowing that flimsy plastic is replaced with a stout aluminum skid tray. Not a worry in the world about anything coming up and through the skid tray causing issues to the running gear on my CX-5

My understanding was the fitment from 2016-2017+ did not change. This looks like a direct swap for earlier gen as well. Can you confirm?

Looking in the instructions I was curious of the other two pocket doors on the plastic splash guards that you don't have on the aluminum skid plate. Are they not needed or not used as much to not to match the OEM openings?
