Lifting a 1.8 nb mx5 to use as a summer car this week. its had a big overhaul of suspension components, brakes and all rusting issues repaired well.
Just looking for some advice on changing some of the fluids or any other things I should look into. The car is completely stock apart from a new...

not interested in a faded viscous LSD
not interested in a post-'94 7 inch diff
I have been enjoying my 97' 1.8 for the past few months now, i was giving the car a general check over and decided to have a look underneath the back end where I spotted alot of moisture around and above the Diff (see pictures attached) this leads to the suspicion of a leaky diff...
Strictly speaking I don't actually have an MX5 - but I have an E30 with a Torsen differential and you guys seem to know your stuff regarding Torsens. I'm having issues with mine currently and your forum always comes up in my searches so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'll try to keep...
Back again with yet another problem.
My diff has completely shot leaving my back wheels locked up.
I've got an open diff currently, and swapping it for a VLSD.
The problem is that the bolt that connects from the Diff to the PPF frame just keeps spinning, there is no way of getting...
so i feel i now need longer gears, i have a 5 speed with 4.3 torsen which came stock in my 1.8 eunos S.
but now im running 269 and will be dropping a forged engine in over the winter and go for more+ i think longer ratio will suit my build better as i need 3rd gear to hit 60 and thats alot of...
Did a gearbox and diff oil change a few days ago - and took care to check the magnetic bungs. This was on the diff one:
Its about 8-10mm in size. The car is a 03 S-VT Sport so has the weaker fuji diff.
So... drive on and forget I saw it?... or can this cause problems?
The car is used on the...
I took my car to Brian (Mazdaman) in Bicester yesterday - lovely guy, by the way - and he has found that I need a diff, as the one I've got is falling to bits inside.
The car is a 2003 mk2.5 1.8 Sport with the 6-speed box, so I need the right diff for this. I'm not sure which is the...
New to MX 5 but can lift a spanner and hammer.
2003 Sport 6 speed, 60k, unmolested
There's a definite but quiet whine I can hear in the cabin that is related to road speed and does not disappear with use of clutch or direction change.
I'm thinking it's the diff but I just...
bit of advise/feedback if you have experience with this.
I am running a 1.8 Torsen type 1 diff with the shafts and prop in my 1991 1.6 turbo. Just taken the car for a battering round Silverstone and thinking of maybe trying a KAAZ 1.5 way diff.
I've picked up my "new" MX5 a few days ago. All was fine during test drive, but with no place to do more than 30 (garage right in middle of city) I only noticed these issues recently:
Handling is fine up to about 40. At 60+ the car is wandering about, and feels really unstable.
Probably being stupid but I can't see a wanted section.
Also any advice on getting an LSD for a 99 mk2 1.8. The car originally had one but someones replaced it with an open diff, really annoying as I specifically looked for a model with one as standard.
I know there are different ratios, I...
Has anyone had any experience with this here MFactory LSD off Tegiwa?
Seems to be a bit cheap really, but I'm sure someone on here might have used this?
Not sure about how I...
Hey guys, I am the proud owner of a 04 plate Mx5, MK2.5, Sport. It has done 65,000 miles and the bodywork is in pretty good condition(Slight rust on sills). I am absolutely loving the car, however as a new owner I am constantly looking out for new rattles or noises etc.
I think Ive found one...
So pulling away from a junction yesterday there was a noise in the rear of my car followed by a loud metallic rattling. An inspection of the diff showed that the one mounting arm had completely sheered off.
How common is this? I was told it is a Torsen LSD, are the casings across the...
