    Hi guys, 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...

    Hi guys, 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...
  9. Problems
    Hi there, 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...

    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...

    Hi all, 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...

    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. ?????????
  15. Problems
    Hi Guys, 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. I...
  16. Wanted
    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...

  19. Problems
    Hi, 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...
