Re: What have you got through the post today thread

A parcel from those nice people at Autolink. A couple of Mk1 soft top catches to re-furbish and replace the now non locking ones on my NB, along with the rubbers and plastic nipples I even remembered to use the MM discount code. I did however manage to order the wrong nipples (2.5 ones) as I didn't ...

Re: Cutting out when hot

This sounds very like what my 1.8 did. Started off intermittently when left after a run then eventually started cutting out on hot days. First thing is to get the LED kit and see what fault codes are there. On mine it showed up a CAM sensor fault, so I bought a new one and when it cut out on the roa...

Re: What have you got through the post today thread

We don't seem to have used this thread for a bit..... So just arrived with the Post Man, a diagnostic reader from MX5 Tech. This just plugs into the under bonnet socket and displays the error codes on a small screen- a bit easier than fiddling about with jumper wires and trying to count LED flashes....

Re: Air con problem

No developments as yet -been too wet/cold to get under it to check the part number. We think it is probably the bearing that has broken up and jammed the pulley, but can't be sure until we get it off. The shorter non air con belt fits OK and just misses the compressor pulley, so it is at least usabl...

Re: Air con problem

That rather more polite than I said MM! (its ****** big time!!!) Have a short belt on order so we can get power steering back working which will hopefully go on with the Air con compressor still in place. Have just moved it a bit without power steer and boy was it heavy-I must be getting old-my Dats...

Re: Air con problem

Been out this morning and the pulley won't turn by hand. Not sure how much resistance there should be and if I should be able to turn it. Not sure why it wont turn if it has a clutch I would have thought it would freewheel even if the compressor is seized. Belts were all changed about 8000 miles ago...

Air con problem

Just got back in with the NB and for the last mile or so there was a nasty smell of burning rubber which I initially thought was the car in front as he was going rather slowly. Pulled onto drive and stopped with smoke coming from under the bonnet....oh ****! Had a quick look under the bonnet to try ...

Re: Forum how to's

Agree re the cheap sensors Wayne. That is why I am waiting to hear some feedback. I would not expect a twenty pound sensor to last as long as an OEM but if it does the job and at about a tenth of the cost........ I know of one owner who has bought a pair for his NB, but am not sure if he has fitted ...

Yes found it OK Wayne- all I did was to edit the address bar to go to the main page. Surprising how many times I end up pointing people to it.......Might have to update it slightly though as there now seem to be cheaper EBay front sensors available-just waiting for some feedback from people that hav...

While we are on the subject... Is there a link on the forum to the how tos that are on the mazdamenders.net page? Couldn't find one the other day when I was trying to point someone to the ABS sensor replacement one, and had to use the main site address. (it may be I was looking in the wrong place as...
