Re: Drilled Airbox mk1 versus K&N induction...

Had a K&N typhoon fiited to my 2003 sport, sounded great, nice obvious induction sound. But I took it off as the sound of the induction was so good it kept on making me hit the loud pedal which wasnt good for the fuel economy. Personally, for maintaining the original engine bay look, I would sti...

Re: New aerial mast or the whole unit?

Had this issue on our very first mx, it was the tooths on the nylon mast insert that had failed. Solution for me was a new mast insert from mx5 parts, a simple strip down to remove the old mast and clean out the mechanism then insert the new mast which took me a couple of attempts to get it right.

If the body work is sound then it has to be worth the effort to sort out a fix.

Well IMHO it is

Re: Failed drop link

All four plus the ARB bushes swapped out today, they all show a little sign of wear but nothing to really worry about. Job was made easy by using the 3 in 1 lift which saves my poor old knees. Hoping that these new bushes might clear up the occaissional tinny rattle as I cant find any thing loose. :...

Re: Transmission Shunt

From memory of our departed 2003 sport, there is no engine stabiliser, the only judder we had was via the clutch which was a known fault and cured by a new uprated clutch. The transmission on MX5s is fairly robust and simple, never heard of the symptoms your describing but I am sure when Mm is done ...

Re: Calliper seal change

Bleed nipples, if you can use a bit of heat (remember brake fluid is inflammable) and a good fitting socket, take it easy, sometimes they will suprise you, other times they drive me mad.

Re: Calliper seal change

Clamp the rubber pipe, if you dont have a brike pipe clamp tool, use a pair of molegrips. Rule of thumb is to rember your not trying to squash the pipe in half but merely enough to close the hole down the pipe.

Failed drop link

Well, with all this nice weather finally got a day off to enjoy the wee Mazda. Great ride out into the Dales and then a matter of five miles from home, met a wayward arrogant or ignorant famer in his loader who had a good meter or so to his nearside but seemingly flatly refused to pull over, so I ha...

Re: New pads or calliper problem?

It should go flush, as a guide, they should go back the same on both sides, if ones sticking out more than then other then you could try pumping it out and then squeeze it back in, its probably a ring of rust on the piston hidden under the rubber cover, we have sometimes managed to free them up for ...
