    The most obvious options would be

    1. Go to your local dealer

    If you mean 2006, check out my photo album from the NY auto show:

    Prices aren't even set yet, though.

    My Miata was broken into, the fools slashed the soft top cover. Now I need to get a new one, but cannot find a place that will install it. Does anyone have a place they could recommend in the Bay Area, Berkeley or Oakland California would be ideal. I would greatly appreciate any advice one might have.

    Sorry to hear that.

    I had a rock thrown through my top's window a couple of weeks ago. I just ordered a new top and will install it myself, in fact it arrived yesterday. has them, a complete no-zipper top for a '90-97 with glass runs $450, not too bad. Comes with instructions, and the rain rail pre-installed.

    In Cali there are actually far more installers than here on the east coast, look around. Maybe even Google Robbins Top and then look for installers, I'd venture to guess that *most* of them are in California, actually.

    Installed I usually see prices from $600 (plastic window) to just over a grand for glass with defroster.

    Good luck. Insurance did pay for mine, minus the comprehensive deductible.

    Just about any decent upholstery shop should be able to install it for you. Around here, they seem to charge about $200 for the labor. You will probably be able to buy the top on the net for less than the upholsterer can get it.

    Came in just this week. I might try to install it tomorrow, in my car port because of course we are due to get rain (figures).

    Hi: I'm excited to have just purchased a 91 Miata. My most pressing concern is the timing belt; it has not been replaced and while the mileage is low (under 20K) I wonder if I should replace the belt based on the age of the car?

    Next up I'm wondering what is the preferred leather treatment to keep the seats from aging excessively?

    THANKS in advance,

  • ateixeiraateixeira Member Posts: 72,587
    Based on the age, I'd say yes, it would be a good idea to change the belt. Here are some instructions if you feel up to it:

    It is a non-interference engine, so it the belt does break you won't total the engine, but you will be stranded.

    Very clean, nice!

    ">Well, I'll be second... Due to a divorce and lawyer's fees, I have to sell my "baby," a 1999 1/2 10th aniv. Nardi Torino model originally from CA but now garaged and pampered in Newtown, PA. It's got the 5spd., leather, the Bose Cd stereo upgrade and every available option with artic white exterior and saddle interior and top and only 56K miles. Paid 12,500 last year and only had the pleasure of puting a couple of K miles on her: asking 9K now. 215-968-2090 (landline) 215-801-0433 (cell) Will try to put a small pic here. Hope to save my pennies for a new one some year soon...

    In response to damelola for replacement of her convertible top...
    try miatatopworks in Marin county, they changed the top on my 1999 for $600 part and labor included.
    its a vinyl top with glass window,great deal at the price!

    where can i get a manuel for a mazda miata 1995

    thank you
  • ateixeiraateixeira Member Posts: 72,587
    You probably have to go to the dealer.

    I had a Haynes manual for my 93 but it was only so-so. A lot of times I was able to find better advice and photos on-line, for free.
  • lordelpuzlordelpuz Member Posts: 16
    I got two online, you can get them from


    I have the Haynes manual but the one called Do it up Mazda Miata/Eunos MX5 A practical guid to renovation on a budget is far far better, with great info and full color pics.

    1990 MX-5... sweet little red car I bought from the original owner about 3 years ago. The car has been running great. Just tuned up less than a month ago.

    I live in the Atlanta area and we got very, very heavy rains and flooding 10 days ago. My car has not run since. !! It was not sitting in flood water, however, somehow I ended up with about 4-5 inches of rain on the passenger-side floor. Trunk was damp. Roof is new and not leaking.

    Engine wants to start.... but will turn over and then die.

    Tried putting some 'Heet' in the gas tank a few days ago... Have let the car sit and dry out for over a week now... It has made improvements each day -- starting easier and idling for up to about 5 seconds now, but then chokes out and won't start again for a couple hours when I try again.

    Any suggestions? Not ready to let them haul this sweet little ride off to the junk yard! It's in great condition!!

  • ateixeiraateixeira Member Posts: 72,587
    Must be electrical.

    You can use WD40 to displace water, that's actually what the W and D stands for.

    Also check to make sure all the fluids are clean and not contaminated with water.
