I bought these cables to replace the ones in my 8 year old MX-5 that had rotted through. No instructions on how to fit them were supplied, and MX5Parts ignored my email asking for instructions.
It took me and a friend two hours to fit one cable on one side (this included the time it took to work out HOW to fit them!!!)...and I still haven't finished as the rivet hasn't held, so will need to use a nut and bolt (which won't be easy).
With regards to the hole not lining up, mine did...but I am fitting them to a Mk 2.
Despite the problems, I'm sure that they'll do the job and save me a few hundred quid on a new roof, but the fact that there were no fitting instructions supplied, I'll have to mark this down a star or two.
