If its just the light itself he ring around the front of the headlight is probably either lose or gone.

Most likely the head light bucket which holds the
light to the core support has come loose or has broken.

Why does 97 miata headlight retractor stay in upright position?


Common problem with any brand of car with power headlights. Probably the motor. You could inspect the unit to verify that it moves freely. Check on the Miata forum.

1995 mazda miata no electrical power, nothing works


Most often the main 80 amp fuse is blown - happens when someone slips with a socket extension when trying to remove the battery terminals. Fuse is under the hood, passenger side and here's a diagram: http://www.mellens.net/mazda/Mazda-Miata-1997/fuses.pdf

I have an Mk1 Mx5 and my popup lights were working fine till last week, were only one (drivers side) comes up. I can pop the hood and fiddle with the manual light raiser and then it starts to work but its...


Lubricate all the rods and connections you have so there is not as much friction.

The headlights in a Mazda Miata are generally of two types. Some Miatas use the factory "flip up" style headlights, where a motor raises and lowers the headlight assembly out of the front bumper area. When this motor fails or when the headlights are not working properly, you'll need to replace the failed component. Replacement headlights are normally available from Mazda or from most auto parts stores if you need to replace the entire assembly. However, before you replace anything, you need to troubleshoot the problem. check for debris in the path and any loose or frayed wires.

Unfortunatly there is no adjustments, probably a weak motor.

If this was helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated for the advice.

thanks

I have a 2000 Mazda Miata. The head lights work on bright but both go off on dim. I was thinking it maybe a fuse. any help.


Sounds like both dim filaments are broken.
But before you go off and buy a new headlight, try removing the headlight and run a positive lead to each side of the hi and low connectors. Negative is the center pin, like this -_- if dim works with a battery, then you need to replace your dimmer switch. If not, its the headlight itself.

1995 mazda miata flip up headlights one collapsed this evening and one won't stay up. the other headlight is fine. how do i fix this, thinking it's a spring or hydraulic system.


There is a bar that runs off a small motor to the side of the headlight bucket. It is about 4" to 6" in lenght and should have two white plastic caps; one clips on the electric motor of the actuator, the other on the side of the headlight bucket. I think Moss Motors sells these for about $10 a piece. Buy 2 and replace them in pairs. If one has failed, the other may not be far behind.

How do you adjust the headlights on a 2002 Mazda Miata?


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

I lost the manual for my 1995 miata and i need to change the busted right headlight. can you please show me how. thanks.


There should be an access panel at the back of the headlight assembly. Remove the cover and replace the halogen bulb. Pretty easy job. Some of the covers screw off.
