Lubricate all the rods and connections you have so there is not as much friction.

The headlights in a Mazda Miata are generally of two types. Some Miatas use the factory "flip up" style headlights, where a motor raises and lowers the headlight assembly out of the front bumper area. When this motor fails or when the headlights are not working properly, you'll need to replace the failed component. Replacement headlights are normally available from Mazda or from most auto parts stores if you need to replace the entire assembly. However, before you replace anything, you need to troubleshoot the problem. check for debris in the path and any loose or frayed wires.

Unfortunatly there is no adjustments, probably a weak motor.

If this was helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated for the advice.

thanks

Replaced bulbs in my Viking DFS423B and still not coming on.


That was a DEAD Electrical short. If your talking about all the bulbs, it's probably at a fuse box. Start by checking all the fuses (under the hood too) Ck all the fuses anyway and that's the circuit where the trouble started if you find a bad fuse. More than one or two fuses your best bet is pro help unless you have wiring diagrams, test light & multimeter. Also look for burn marks on the wiring where you heard the POP.

Mx5 headlights not working


perhaps its the wiring leading to the lamp itself. I don't know about your car, but when i fixed mine, there are 3 lines leading to the headlights. perhaps the one leading to the regular light is probably cut or burnt. Try to have it checked with a car electrician if you're not comfortable fiddling with you car's wiring!

Knob on air conditioner not working right and cruise control stopped working at same time


It is a vacuum leak under the hood. If it is a six cylinder, look on the driver side of the intake manifold for a L shaped fitting that usually pops off. If it is a V8 the leak may be near the battery.
