The best way to find this leak is to use a waterhose, make sure inside is dry them start a slow water spary at the front window and only front glass it is better to have someone inside with a light looking to see a stream coming in, after a while and no leak found start moving up to the top and work your way to rear glass but do this slowly to pinpoint the leak the preson inside must look around also.

Rag top / convertible top motor/pump won't work. Needs fluid or motor?


most soft tops are operated with an electric wiper motor could be just a rust problem, check behind the seat or in the boot of the car, these are normally behind a panel, a little Q20 should sort it out

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.

Pool of water in footwell behind drivers seat.


Is the water only in footwell behind driver seat? If yes, then have you checked the weather stripping around rear door (assuming that it is 4 doors)? My brother had the same problem, and behold it was the stripping around the door. If you find that is the cause, standard household weather stripping added to door frame will work well.

Convertible top is acting sluggish and unresponsive.


You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is your motor/pump/reservoir combination.
With the top down, fill the reservoir to overflowing with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times and repeat.
Do this till the reservoir will take no more fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going somewhere.
If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.

Replacing the drivers side mirror


Inside fuse box is under the drivers side dash panel, where your left knee would be sitting in the seat.

As far as the mirror, the access to the bolts are behind where your tweeter is on the inside of the car where the mirror meets.

Pool of water behind driver seat


more than likely to be either front or rear windscreen, water seeps under carpets to lowest part of floor, if vehicle is a hatch back check the channel at top of door opening is not blocked with leaves or debris as this can cause water to overflow and into vehicle
