Tech Days - Timing Belt / Water Pump

Posted by Kevin on October 4, 2015 at 12:27pm 1 Comment

Hi, does anyone know of any scheduled tech days?  I need to replace my WP and TB along with all the other goodies (cam seals, crank seal, cas o-ring, etc).  I'd like to learn to do this job but am not confident going at it alone.  I was hoping there would be a tech day or something similar where a novice can learn about working on Miatas.  If not, maybe someone can recommend a good mechanic that knows Miatas near Pembroke Pines.

Lou and John thanks for a great day at the track. Good food, good people, and super fun doing laps on the track in our own Miata's.

Beautiful faces, new and old.

Michelle, thank you for your efforts.  You're right; the (sun) light and -- the distance --

This was taken at a Miata Club picnic last November.

Rob, thank you for your upbeat company.  Can this pix be added to "Members"?

Hi, I'm somewhat new to the region and was seeking some advice.  I've been using my dad's Miata ('99) and the rain rail needs to be replaced.  I took it to the Mazda dealer and he said it would be at least $1,000 to replace the rail.  I thought that was kind of high considering the posts I've read said it is fairly simple.  Does anyone have any advice on replacing the rain rail?  Or do you have a go-to person?  I would like to get it fixed sooner because the poor trunk is taking a beating.

Rain rails are very delicate. Even a slight bend will cause your soft top to leak. It's not impossible, you just need to know what you're doing. Also, try going to an upholstery place that specializes on soft tops for a quote on replacing the rain rails. Most likely the price will be much cheaper than the dealer. For 1000$ consider buying yourself a hardtop instead!
