    Hi I'm a bit stumped and looking for some advice (I'm young and inexperienced). Was taking the NC out for a bit of Sunday errand running and noticed a loud, distinctive new Tapping sound coming from my engine (sounds a bit like someone is following me with a jackhammer when driving along. I...

    Good Evening All, Was after a little help if possible, I have a Mazda mx5 NC 2.0 (65K) So my problem began with a grinding noise, SEEMED to be coming from passenger side rear wheel, it is most definitely 'metal on metal'. Had heat coming from that wheel (more heat than the others anyway) after...

    Good morning everyone, When driving my 1990 Roadster on bumpy roads, especially when the ambient temperature is warm or if it's just sunny outside, I can hear a sort of whistling intermettent noise coming from the front left wheel. I'm not sure that's the best / ideal way to describe that so...

    Hi, New here, so hi everyone! Anyway, but of a noise problem with my MK3 08' plate and hope someone could help me find a spanner set or similar for tightening up? Basically when the roof is up it makes an awful creaking and banging noise, but when the roof is down it completely disappears...

    Hi all, This noise has been bothering me for a while now, but definitely didn't exist (or at least not as bad as it is now) when I first got the car just over 2 years ago. It happens at low speeds, of I'd say 5-25mph over rough road, not necessarily pothole kind of thing, but where the surface...

    Hi everyone, Just wondered if it would be worth getting a few camping roll mats under the carpets before I put it all back together to help with sound/heat insulation. I have no idea what impact it would have in keeping out road noise or stabilising the temperature of the cabin during winter...

    Fitted some coilovers over the weekend and drove it on Monday and it was fine. It was fine yesterday also until I was coming home. During my trip home I noticed a knocking noise that occurs at various points. It is not present when pulling off from a stop but once up to speed it is a constant...

    Hi everyone. I've got a slight issue with my mx5, a rattling coming from near side of the engine, happens in all gears and neutral. I've removed the exhaust heatshield to see if it was rattling but that didnt solve the problem. Any idea's from anyone? Theres no noticable loss in power. Currently...

    Wondered if anyone can help, might be just me but here goes... Fiddling with car the other day and noticed there is a slight strange clicking type of noise from under the bonnet when turning the steering side to side. Only happens when you turn the wheel from left to right and vica versa...

    Hi guys, I've just done a clutch replacement with new pilot bearing. Took the flywheel off to do the bearing, all went well, but when I disengage the clutch in neutral, it makes a similar noise like before. It sounds like release bearing, but I've just put a brand new one on? Also, at around 5k...

    I recently fitted a new set of wheels, and when I get to around 60mph I start to hear a knocking noise from the rear right arch, sounds almost like I'm running over cats eyes when I'm not! Happens more above 50mph and hardly at all below 40mph... I have checked the wheel nuts are tight...next...

    Hi guys, Still getting the same cold idle issues and running a bit like a pig on my '95 mk1 uk 1.6.. But I've came across an odd (and a little alarming) noise. When doing about 2,800rpm in any gear, the car is making quite a high pitched, metallic chime/hum noise that's very apparent in the...

    I've got a really loud droning noise under braking at the moment, which seems to be getting worse. When I bought the car (mk2 RS Spec) in May last year, the previous owner said that it made a noise under braking due to it having drilled and grooved discs. Fair enough I thought, but this...

    Hi all, The boyfriend and I are wanting to buy a lovely wee 08 MX5 RC Hardtop but have a few concerns. This is our first time buying an MX5 so would appreciate any advice in relation to a few things. We test drove it today but there was a sound coming from near the inlet manifold - Dad thinks...

    1995 1.6 (UK) Under load going in 4th (mostly) and sometimes 5th.. I'm getting this mad rattle noise from the underside of the car. Sounds very like there's something loose rattling around somewhere.. Very vague but it's hard to describe. I thought it was exhaust but I got my exhaust custom...

    Hi everyone, I've noticed a strange sound on my eunos when I back of from high revs, best to describe it as a grinding noise in a way. Sort of like a binding caliper:/ anybody else experienced this or that have an answer to it? Thanks Dave

    Hi guys, Finally got around to tightening the belt on the alternator.. BUT.. I'm left with this very irritating whining noise now under load. When tightening up the alt I removed the induction piping from the TB to the filter to get access to the alternator. Loosend the locking nut and...

    Morning all! Spent a bit of time perusing the forum as and when I get a chance, but after looking through all of the appropriate sections (I think...) I haven't really found the answer I'm looking for. I've got a small issue with my '93 UK mk1 1.6, it starts up fine, and runs smoothly on idle...
