Fuel Filler Non-Return Valve Thingy?
Posted 16 August 2010 - 07:01 PM
As per this link; http://www.miata.net...sb/sb007_99.pdf - it is a known issue and there is a solution, the part number is listed as; GE4T 42 270
I know someone on Pistonheads has had this fitted, but I dont know the costs involved for it/ I'd like to know if it was something I could easily do myself.
Thanks in advance,

Unfortunately, I did'nt replace it myself, I got Mazda Mender to do it while he was doing various other things on the car. He's on here, and no doubt if you pm him he'll let you know how to do it.
It was by far the best mod I've ever done to the car, I cannot describe how pleasureable my first trip to a petrol station was afterwards, sheer bliss.

Open fuel filler, remove fuel cap, undo four surrounding bolts.
Open boot, unclip boot carpet bit, remove sheild by the fuel filler.
loosen clips,slide off fuel pipes and remove the fuel filler neck.
Reverse the lot for fitting.
Result - it f'kin works, it took ten mins and cost me 15quid. Bloody ace - thanks to Mazda mender again. Very very glad I did it. Its quicker to fit than it used to be to fill up.
