SOURCE: Mazda miata radiator replacement

For myself, if I were to replace something like that, I would (as I did in my 87 RX7 TII) a performance radiator. Koyo the trusted brand is my suggestion though probably more expensive.

http://www.amazon.com/Koyo-R1139-Radiators-1ST-53mm/dp/B000ECN3OO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=automotive&qid=1239937960&sr=8-2

or ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/KOYO-ALUMINUM-RACING-RADIATOR-MAZDA-MIATA-90-97-1st-GEN_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ72Q3a1205Q7c66Q3a2Q7c65Q3a12Q7c39Q3a1Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a1Q7c293Q3a1Q7c294Q3a50QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZitem170321509131QQitemZ170321509131QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

Just be sure to take measurements where needed. Other than that, most radiator swaps can be a DIY project if you have a few hours and are handy with a socket wrench, screwdriver and pliers.

SOURCE: Location O2 sensor after cat for Mazda Miata 2002

Just had BOTH of my O2 sensors replaced in my 2002 Miata.  The sensors are located
1. at the back of the engine compartment look down (on the passenger side ) You should see a spark plug looking device near the bottom of the engine (on the side) it has a short wire output that goes to a connector looking device on the other end. This O2 sensor had a short wire connector on the other end
Probably can be replaced from the top.
2.  This one is tougher --- From underneath the vehicle just after the catalytic converter  you should be able to see the Spark plug like O2 sensor .  The person who repaired it for me had to trace the wire from the O2 sensor.  It goes up into ( perhaps the frame or bottom of the vehicle INTO the Driver compartment under the drivers seat.  It is located near the Center Console  right at the carpet seam. It was about in a straight line from the BACK of the Drivers side Car Door.  He felt around -- and located the Connector (under the carpet near the center console. .  He checked underneath the car to the point where the wire disappeared --to confirm he had the correct wire.  
Once he located where the sensor wire led to --He had the old sensor out and wire connector disconnected and a  New sensor and the connector installed in about 10 minutes.  
The O2 sensor for this one was much longer than the first O2 sensor in the engine compartment He had to use some sort of standard release spray on the old sensor itself --to remove the old O2 Sensor.   Since it is exposed to the elements under the car.   Wrench, I think a screwdriver  and the spray were all the tools I remember him using.....

The autozone code indicated only the engine compartment sensor was bad.
The repair man told me Both usually go bad at the same time.  
I fixed the first one only -- turned out the warning light lit up a day or so later indicating the second O2 Sensor under the vehicle was bad.  Fixed that as well -- have had no problems since -- repair was about 4 months ago.....

SOURCE: Can't find the adjustment knob for the headlights on a 2008 Mazda

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)

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.

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.

Fuel pump replacement 2002 mazda miata


The fuel pump is in the fuel tank. You may be able to access the fuel tank by removing your bottom rear seat cushion. If no access there you must remove the fuel tank. If you have to remove the tank and it is mostly full you should siphon out as much fuel as you can into appropriate containers.

There's a 30-amp fuse for the headlamps - check that first. Under the hood on the passenger side. Right next to it is a relay that drives the headlights.

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.
