I had the same problem with my1993 model. Finally figured out it happened every time I drove my second car (the Mazda). I folded over a pillow to put in the back of the seat so the angle is not so deep. Presto, no more back pain. Try it.

I just bought a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata with 54,000 on it. As I'm contemplating a vacation trip of at least 5000 miles, I think I ought to have the 60,000 service done before I leave town.
I hope somebody knows an Austin area shop with experience with the Mazdaspeed.
#4343 of 4350 squeeky alt belt.
Sep 01, 2010 (8:34 pm)
The alternator belt on my 97 is squeeking. It is only 2 weeks old. The one I replaced was almost new too. Any suggestions?

Is the tension correct? Not too loose or tight? Any wear on the side of the old belt that may indicate a misalignment or interference?
#4345 of 4350 Mazda Miata passenger side small water leak: help

I have a 2002 Mazda Miata. First time I 've had a leak. It is my passenger side, small leak, but now the foot board is getting soaked, any advise?

If the leak is above the windshield on the passanger side, buy some 1/2" closed cell foam rod, sold at WalMart as window insulation, and with the top down, squeeze it down between the two rubber gaskets that should bear against the top material when the top is raised. If the leak is at the top of the passanger window, insert a rod of the same closed-cell foam in the round rubber gasket that the raised passanger window-glass pushes against to seal the top/window junction. You may have to cut a little slit in the round rubber gasket to slip the rod into.
I've had to do both repairs on my 2004, and the sealing effect has also decreased wind noise by sealing the top properly.

I'd have the HVAC system checked if it's down in the foot well.

Try simply removing the dead pedal. That takes care of the left leg. I modified mine (2008 model) to move it about 3/8" back.
For the right leg, some people cut the pedals and add spacers to move them back, and away, but I never tried it.
