The positive cable will have a cross symbol on it,,,the negative will have a dash symbol... warning,,,do not get them mixed up,,,remember,,,positive to positive,,,negative to negative,,,if you cross the cables and get sparks,,,one or both of the cars (if your getting a jump from another car) will suffer great damage to the charging system.

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.

Will 1992 miata side mirrors fit exactly on a 1996 miata

The above is a good explanation of accessing the mirror but to answer your question directly, yes, they will fit. All the 90-97 mirrors are interchangeable with the exception of installing later power mirrors onto a 90-91 Miata where it wasn't a factory option. They will mount up fine but do require enlarging the center hole where the wires need to run.

1999 mazda miata battery does not have pos or neg stamped on battery and both cables are black so its hard to tell which cables to attach for recharging...

All batteries have to have a + and - or "plus" and "minus" or something.
But all you need to do is take a test light, and ground the clip on any bare metal, like port of the engine. They which ever terminal lights the probe has to be the plus. The engine and all chassis metal is always the negative. I suggest you then get those red and black felt anti corrosion pads for the terminals so that you will know next time.

Red is positive. Black is negative. Negative goes to ground (car body and engine block). Positive goes to the starter.

90 miata lights

> Any suggestions or reference to free wiring diagram downloads??

It doesn't seem likely since most of that kind of material is copyrighted works. I think they would take offense to putting it on the web.

You might get some help (or even emailed diagrams) from a fellow owner.

Good luck-
