Okey dokey, I have a mk2, this one...



Anyway i have a a couple of specific questions...

1) I need a radio ariel, but cant find anyone breaking a mk2 or having one for sale, will a mk1 one fit?

2) my interior light has a problem, it is on all the time unless turned to 'off' door switches are fine, so there must be a short somewhere, is this common i.e. is there a known place for this to happen or am i going to have to strip out all the associated wiring and go through it?

3) What diff oil is reccomended for a Viscous diff? is it true that the viscous element is sealed and that a standard diff oil is fine?

4) if i were to find and source a 1.8 engine (preferably from a mk2 without the fancy vvt style system/variable intake etc) to replace my 170k 1.6 is there any major stumbling blocks or problems i am likely to encounter..

5) and finally my interior is a sea of flat black plastic, are there any kits available to smarten it up a bit, eg steering wheel badge, air vent trims, etc etc...?

FANKS!

Hello and welcome,

Try this for the interior - http://www.mx5parts.co.uk/mk225-19982005-c-23_315.html Loads of bits and pieces available. Or you could look at the retro roadster threads on here for some more extreme inspiration (get the chequebook out for anything japanese though).

Mx5 parts are also quite good for checking what's compatible with what - e.g. parts or fluids (bit pricey though).

Autolink are good for parts and secondhand parts http://www.autolinkuk.co.uk/ - I'm sure they have aerials.
