    Hi, I could use some diagnostic assistance. I've had my MX5 NA a couple of months now, after a week or so in I noticed a squeal started. It wasn't just on cold start, it would typical be slow driving round town. On a motorway, 70, 5th, no squeal. Never seemed to have any other symptoms. Now...

    Left ignition on in my car for a few days, because I am stupid and my 2 year old westco battery is dead as a doornail. I have a ctek charger that I usually trickle charge it on, and when I plug that is there is no error light, but it is not progressing through the stages - in fact it is doing...

    I'm having a slight rust problem in the bottom of the battery compartment on my '98 mk2. The battery it has (since I bought it) is a classic cheapo acid one. I think its sealed (its non-maintenance at least), but it is too large for the OEM tray, so it was mounted directly on the floor. Now I...

    So in a nutshell I just parked my 1.6 Eunos up and turned the engine off. As I turned the key I heard a pop sound and no electrical components are working what so ever. I've checked the battery and cleaned the terminals and still nothing. Does anyone have any idea what this could be as I'm...

    Hello all. It seems my original OEM battery (Panasonic) has finally died! I have been researching everywhere and seem to be getting two different answers. I have a 2007 (07 plate) MX-5 2.0l Sport. There are many battery suppliers who state that a 063 size battery (d175 x h175 x w207mm) will...

    Hi, Time for a new battery in the Mk1 track project. I know the standard is an AGM type although a lot of people just seem to be fitting standard Bosch batteries. Seeing as the Westco AGM is the same price as an Odessey PC545 is this a suitable route to go? If so, I presume the cable terminals...

    Last night I had cause to use my Junopower Jumpr in anger for the first time. Whilst I bought it after a sidelight incident in the 5, it works on bigger stuff as well. My mates car is a 3.0L v6, the battery was completely flat. He'd tried a standard battery pack, but it didn't have enough kick...
