With open-topped styling and performance evocative of the classic sportscars of the 60s, the Mazda MX5/Eunos had to be a huge international success and that's exactly what it's become. Now a familiar sight on the streets and boulevards of the world, the MX5 is owned by real enthusiasts, the kind of people who will want to have hands-on involvement with the maintenance and repair of their prized possession. For those enthusiasts, here is what we believe is the best, easiest to use, workshop manual in the world ... Rod set out to create a new kind of owner's workshop manual - friendly, easy to understand, easy to use and, yet, more detailed than any other manual currently available: two years later Rod's MX5 manual was the result. Rod, and fellow enthusiasts Pete and Judith, stripped down an MX5 in an ordinary domestic garage using ordinary tools and, in the process, took over 1500 step-by-step photographs. The result of all this work is a superbly detailed text which passes on to the reader every detail of important jobs, including how problems can be overcome without resorting to special tools. This manual even tells the reader the size of nuts and bolts so they can start work with the right tools and all clearances and torque values are given in the text as the reader needs them. At paragraph level, a unique symbol system provides cross-references or tells the reader that there are helpful associated photos, drawings and tables. The dreaded words "reassembly is a reversal of the dismantling procedure" are banned and every task, from changing a bulb to rebuilding the gearbox, is described in full. Besides detailed coverage of maintenance and repairs, this manual includes advice on rustproofing, cosmetic tuning and mechanical tuning. Rod's manual was prepared with the assistance of Mazda. The manual applies to all 1600cc models built between 1989 & 1995. Much of the manual is relevant to later 1600 & 1800cc models.
