I have a 1996 Mazda Miata and the drivers side window crank will not turn any more. It has been sticking off and on for awhile and now it will not roll the window up at all. How do I get to it to fix it? Mahalo!

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.

The price he listed you could have also included the labor charge, I would check around with other shops as well as the dealership but also be warned that not all parts sold online are quality parts specially if they are coming out of china.

Manual window winder just spinning and not opening window. My car is a Mazda MX5 Mark 1 1.8 1996 model.

You either need a new window crank itself, the inside of the crank could be stripped, you move the crank and out at it to see if the splines are wore away. Or your window regulator, inside the door, has gone bad and would need replaced.

Electic window on mazda mx5 sticks when going down(not up). Motors and cables are working. Window appears to move in guides and doesnt go down squarely making it stick. I have tried lubricating the guides...

Look really good,for another window guide that is missing,or you may need to adjust the guide track,or the window channel,that the window sets in,If the window is moving around in the window channel,then the adhevsive has let go of the window.

'02 Miata stalls randomly

your crank position sensor is starting to go bad. we see this a lot at the shop, when it gets hot it will short itself out. you will need to replace it before it goes out all the way. it is located on the front of the valve cover or on the pass side rear of the cover and is held it by one bolt. you can get this at your local parts house but I do recommend you use the one from the dealer we seem to have less problems with them.
