Thomas, Artus and Taylor all came into the team. Liam Hearn was on the bench.
Macclesfield had most of the early chances but Andy Cook gave Grimsby the lead on 13 minutes when he headed a Taylor cross which looped over the 'keeper.
On 20 mins Fairhurst blasted a shot which hit the post.
Pablo Mills fired in an equaliser from a corner, driving home in a crowded box after the initial effort was saved by McKeown.
Another of ex-Mariner Peter Winn's in-swinging corners led to a shot being cleared off the line by Thomas.
It was then Town's turn to score from a corner following a rare attack. Pearson rose to head an Artus corner under the 'keeper's reach.
HT: 2-1 Grimsby. Town had less chances than Macc, who have had Grimsby under the cosh for long periods.
Midway through the second half Hannah gave way to Colbeck and Grimsby went to 4-5-1.
Colbeck should have done better when Town broke quickly but the sub's diving header from Taylor's cross went wide.
Artus scored from a tap in when Town again broke quickly. After a cross by Colbeck Cook beat the 'keeper and Artus finished it off from inches away.
Town comfortably saw out the remaining 15 minutes to record their first successive away victories for six months.
