Question about 1993 Mazda MX-5
I have just changed rear pads on my 1998 MX5. Now the rear brakes hardly work and the handbrake comes all the way up.
The calipers went back easily to incorporate the new pads so they are not seized. Any ideas ???
As You may know a MX5 dose not use the pedal for the rear brakes take a look at the adjuster on the caliper might need the piston to tighten up

Whenever you change pads, you must always pump the pedal several times to get the calipers to take up any excess space between the pad and rotor. You'll fill it in the pedal as they pump up.
