I wanted to remove the front number plate plinth from my Mk1 import and was surprised to find 5 rivets holding it on...
What's the best way to remove these cleanly? Access from the top and bottom looks really limited so presumably taking the front bumper off for full access?
After selling my mx5 and going into the mr2 world I have decided that mx5 was better in my opinion and on the hunt for another. Always wanted a 1.6 s special in black preferably however any decent car for my price range is welcome.
Name is Juno, I'm a 92 Import MK1 on 40,600 miles / 65,500 kms.
Recent rear arches cut, welded and primered.
Sitting on some lowering springs / 14" enkies.
Current status is KØ
Water pump went and I cooked it getting to work, needs new head gasket and resurface.
Current plans are...
A good mate of mine sadly passed away recently, he generously left me his Mk1 MX5.
I've been faffing about with the car and the one thing I've not been able to get right, is to put the hood down.
My mate had the rear plastic screen replaced with a glass heated version, that is fixed, not...
Hey guys! Not a new owner - in fact I have had my Mk 1 BRG for four years now. But finally thought it was worth signing up to the forums. I'm looking to post a guide on how I sprayed my daisies, as Im particularly pleased with how they have turned out. Any suggestions on where to post?
Been looking at a mates Mk1 1.6 import long nose ('90 - 115bhp engine) for the last couple weeks.
Goes like this -> misfires constantly no power what so ever, cant keep up with a 90bhp uk car.
Have tried everything I can think of on it. Changed cambelt, set timing, coilpack, leads, plugs, ECU...
Weird one today - had MX5s for 10 years now so know my way around them, I thought my current one had a manual rack... maybe not?
Recently bought one with a manual rack and it's lovely, light, controllable, etc. Just lovely to drive.
Now, my other one which I thought had a manual rack...
I everyone, I'm Paolo from Italy, nice to meet you all, this is my first message here. :)
I have an European MX5 NA model year '94 (registered in Italy) and I have a BIG problem.
I recently bought OEM jdm front fog lights (from '92 model year), but unfortunately the switch connector (which is...
Oi oi, aaaaand I'm back again.
IS200 was cool and that, but really couldn't fall in love with it. So here we are, on my 4th 5 now, and this one has been real slog already!
Some of you may know this car, it was a Santa Pod regular for a couple of years, and looked like this in it's heyday...
Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of some decent coilovers that are available for £250 or less for the mk1. Have seen a lot of previous posts on this topic however they are all quite dated and recommend coilovers that are no longer for sale for the mx5 e.g racelands. Height adjustment is...

In order to measure my CR after a head skim, I need the piston dish/dome volume (cc)in cm3.
I have the combustion chamber volume (48cc) but now need this
It's difficult to find this...
(Need for 94-97)
I am looking for some advice on what options I may have when it comes to repairing my mx-5 which was crashed into just this morning.
My local garage has informed me that if the chassis rails are not 'bolted' there is little that can be done under insurance by them, and I don't believe...
I'm new to the forum, after selling my Eunos nearly 10 years ago and missing it since the day it left, I'm finally back in the game!
I picked up a tidy Mk1 but the roof is in need of replacement. I've got hold of a mk2 roof (1 piece/no zip) with a glass heated window. The only thing is...
Raceland coilovers from mk1 mx5 complete with top mounts
I believe the top mounts were actually mk2 but fitted my car fine, may also fit mk2?
Had use only in summer, all adjusters free and C spanners included. No leaks. Only changing as I've treated myself to BC's
Located in East Kent
I recently bought a 1993 Mazda MX5 Eunos impulsively. Given that it is a 25 year old car, it was always going to have issues. For instance, my coolant line gave way a few weeks back and ever since it has been sat in my garage.
I keep trying to convince myself that I will turn this...
It's been a few years since I posted a build thread on here. I'm on my fifth MX5, and I plan on keeping this one for many years to come. My previous ones were:
1998 1.8 NB RS
1994 1.8 NA (which I supercharged)
1995 1.8 NA
2001 1.8 NB Jasper Conran
1990 1.6 NA (current car)
Back in 2007 I bought a NC 1.8 Icon in Storm Blue. By 2008 I traded that in for a Galaxy Grey 2.0 Sport as I intended to Supercharge it so wanted to start with the top of the range model. Long story short I had it Cosworth Supercharged but after a log and painful story I sold it. I am sure a...
