How is PPF height adjusted? I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly what needs to be adjusted.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe those are the stoppers for when you put the top down. There was a TSB on it at one point.

EDIT: They rest on the large rubber stop that sits on your package shelf when the top is folded:



These basically keep the top from resting right on the shelf.

Anyone have any ideas on how to do this?
Or anyone know what section of the FSM this is in?

Thanks! :wavey:

Does anyone have any experience with the Moss Miata Aftermarket Brake pads? Are they OEM equivalent or should I go for better?

I completely stripped the interior of my car, including the dashboard and the attached wiring harness. Before I did this though, I foolishly left a window down. Now my power windows won't work. Tomorrow it's forecasted to rain and I want my car to stay dry without the aid of duct tape and plastic sheeting.

Is there an easy way to manually raise the windows? Maybe jump the wires directly to a 12V battery? Or am I best off trying to see what electrical connection I may have broken?

You can hook a 12v source directly up to the window regulator harness and get the window up. You'll need 12v power and a ground.

One combination will roll the window up. The other will attempt to roll the window down.

Shouldn't take you more than about 15 seconds to find out which way is which.

Question, if im running catless and can smell the exhaust inside the cabin while moving, is that a sign of an exhaust leak?

It might be, but what everone who ran a miata catless told me, is that there is strong exhaust smell in the cabin, unbearable in some cases.

It is true. Believe it has something to do with the exhaust gases being "pulled" into the car from the back. Can confirm this in my car, I'm running catless and it's burning some oil through the valve stem seals. The fouling from the burning oil can be found all the way to the top of the hardtop, so that's evidence that some of it makes it near the compartment area, from outside the car.

Thanks guys! Not sure i want the ISR exhaust then...i love the sound of it but if the smell is going to be unbearable i may have to pass. I used to have catless before, and the smell was constantly there...I could smell it while moving even. Not sure what that was about...

Based on that exhaust you probably have a small leak. Did you use new gaskets? And what's the condition of your shift boot? Not the leather one. The upper rubber one under that.

Im sure the rubber shift boot is probably torn badly. As for the leak, thats what Im thinking it is...I used new gaskets, but could hear a hissing sound from somewhere.

Do NA fans bolt onto NB radiators? I'm looking for a shroud to go on the aluminum one I ordered, but the fan/shroud kit was out of stock.

Thanks

I cant find somewhere to sell the SU Classic Red Color Code. Does anyone know a good site to purchase it not in aerosol cans? Also is it standard practice to add clearcoat over paint or still leave it single stage with classic red resprays?

I need to replace my header cat converter and was wondering if I go with a Magnaflow vs OEM what's the pros/cons besides cost? Will an aftermarket cat converter mess everything up? It's a direct fit cat converter by Magnaflow. Thanks!

Has anyone here used Eibach Pro Kit springs on an NB? I'm thinking of getting some to go with my Koni Yellows but I'm wanting to retain ride quality due to my sensitive back.

Honestly? I'm surprised you didn't just buy the FM kit that comes with their springs.

I should have clarified that the reason I'm asking is that a guy locally has them BNIB never installed, same as my shocks. He offered me a good price on them but I turned them down initially because I like the way my car rides but now I'm wondering if I shouldn't just replace it all in one go and enjoy far superior handling, but I would rather not risk destroying my back and hating my car.

EDIT: Oh, lord. Just found some specs that say they're 1.2" lowering spring. That's... a tad excessive for me, honestly. I might pass on that one. I enjoy being able to get in and out of the parking garage.

General consensus is that the only "lowering springs" worth buying are the FM springs.

I'm not even after more low, just improved handling. Ideally I'd like a progressive-rate spring that lowers the car a max of .5" but I'm not aware of such a thing existing unless I get a "lowering" spring and then put a rubber spacer of some kind under the coil to lift the car back up.
