My antenna just stopped working in my MR2 2003 Spider. The motor still runs but the antenna will not go up and down. It made a weird noise and I had to pull the top of the antenna up to stop the motor from sounding loud.

Should I replace this or can you disconnect it and push the antenna up and down?

It sounds like the mast cable in the power unit is broken or disengaged. This cable pushes and pulls up and down the mast. You can buy the cable separate from Toyota.

The power antennea unit is located in the rear wheel tub . you should be able to see the unit once you pull back the fabric you will just need metric hand tools.

Don't know what you mean by fabric? The antenna is located behind the rear tire molding. By removing the rear tire and then the black liner in the wheel well you can gain full access the the antenna. I removed the power antenna and dis-assembled the housing to remove the broken plastic extender for the antenna mast. I then installed the new mast. It now works like new.

Which shield? Do you have a pic? If its the "Diaper" that hangs off the rear bumper, you should be ok. I took mine off when I first bought the car, has no effect whatsoever. If its a heat shield that's around the exhaust, it also has no effect, maybe a slight performance decrease due to higher engine bay temps.

Cruise control in my 2003 mr2 spyder suddenly went out

check the fuse for the cruise control from the driver side located on the left side of the dashborad. Make sure the fuse is not blown out.
If it bad, change it out but make sure it is the same rated fuse.

Good luck

Mr2 transmission

use only OEM Toyota trans fluid. If there is one lesson I learned with my MR2, its that Toyotas own trans fluid is the best. Yes, its a few dollars more, use it anyway.

As for your top, there is a product called Amazing Roll off. Its for boat canvases and its simply the best thing i've ever used. try it, you wont be disappointed.

MR2 after 2 mins of starting the smt light comes on.

it sounds like the clutch actuator is worn out.
The clutch actuator has 2 parts:
1. the clutch master cylinder
2. the clutch slave cylinder.

Try to replace the slave cylinder first, and if it is still not solving the problem, then try to replace the clutch master cylinder

Good Luck
