Check to see that the safety cover in the trunk is properly aligned in the brackets. It must depress a switch on either side of the trunk for the roof to close. Thank you for using Fixya!

How do you change the bulb in side turn signal lamps(in exterior mirrors)

I know, the video isn't an SC but it shows how you don't need that much room at the bottom. I have an 04 sc430 - love it but haven't had to change trunk struts yet. Good luck.

There are a couple of lexus forums that can be very helpful links beneath video...

The water leaks into my boot and the left or passenger side inside the car leaving huge puddles of water inside. very unpleasant. also the 2007 MX5 convertable - no leaks in roof or rubbers. help please.

  • If water is getting in from the driver's or passenger's window near the soft top weather-strip, shut the door after closing the window. When putting up the hood, lower the windows while you secure the hood latches & then raise the windows. These actions force the window to contact the weather-strip a bit differently than when the window is closed while the door is closed.
  • There are two common places an MX5 will leak water into the interior - where the top meets the windshield frame- and around the windows where they contact the mouldings. Leaks at the windshield frame are usually caused by dirty or damaged mouldings or the latches not being tight enough. Usually you will notice the top will squeak and rattle if it isn't latched down tight.
  • Wetness in the trunk/boot can be caused by a range of factors. 1. Dried out weather-stripping around the trunk. 2. A cracked rain rail on the convertible top. 3. Dried out weather-stripping around the tail lights.
  • There are three mouldings that fit around the window, and water can leak either between them and the window, or between them and the top. Each of these mouldings is attached to a metal 'track' that is secured to the top frame with two screws. The window moulding that is closest to the windshield header is held on by two screws, the others have nothing holding them.
  • Water can collect in the weather-strips due to small crack or splits along the edge of the hood where it folds after a years of regular top-up top-down use. The only real solution is a new hood.

How do i remove and replace my wind shield in my 1985 ford pickup

Removal & Installation

You'll need Windshield Installation Kit E0AZ-19562-A, or equivalent urethane installation kit, and a helper.

  1. Remove the windshield wiper arms.
  2. Remove all windshield exterior mouldings and retainers.
  3. Using a electric knife, T70P-42006-A or equivalent, insert the blade under the edge of the glass. Cut the butyl seal as close to the inside surface of the glass as possible. Wear gloves. Have your helper sit in the vehicle, place his/her feet against the top of the windshield and gently, but firmly push outward while you support the glass.
  4. Temporarily position the replacement glass in the windshield opening using spacers to prevent glass to metal contact.

Adjust glass side to side to the best glass-to-A-pillar weld flange overlap position and adjust the lower spacers if necessary for proper positioning at the top. A minimum butyl tap-to-glass contact of 3/16 inch (4.8mm) on A-pillar, 3/8 inch (9.5mm) on header and cowl is required around the perimeter to assure proper retention and a waterproof seal. Mark this location with a crayon on the outside surface of the glass and a corresponding point of the glass opening. Remove the glass and clean the inside surface thoroughly.

To install:

  1. Start at the side of the glass opposite the original butyl splice and place the 5/16 inch (8mm) butyl furnished in the kit on the top of and in a position that assures the 3/16 inch (4.8mm) minimum contact with the glass on the existing butyl remaining on the pinch weld flange.

Do not allow the new butyl to overhang the edge of the existing butyl and do not stretch the butyl or bridge the corners of the windshield opening.

  1. Carefully splice the two loose ends of the new butyl. The cut line of the splice must taper downward toward the outboard side of the vehicle.
  2. Using a clean brush, apply the glass primer (supplied with the kit) around the cleaned inside surface and the edge of the glass in the area that will contact the butyl seal. Allow at least 5 minutes drying time.
  3. Place the glass in the opening aligning the crayon marks.
  4. Firmly press the glass against the butyl with hand pressure and check to assure that the 3/16 inch (4.8mm) contact between glass and butyl is achieved. A dull spot indicates an area where the butyl is not contacting the glass surface. Apply additional pressure to seal these areas.
  5. From outside the vehicle, apply liquid butyl sealer around the entire edge of the glass.
  6. When the liquid sealer has has skinned over in approximately ten minutes, water test the installation.
  7. Install the moldings and wiper arms.
