- My model of MX-5 is: NA 1600 Auto
- I’m based near: Bexhill
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: Auto Box
Last night on the A21, I had a sudden loss of gears and a big cloud of smoke
After getting it back on the drive, I have found that I have a large fluid leak from inside the bell housing
From experience it’s probably the torque converter seal, I have read that the seal can pop out on MX5’s, my guess would be that it’s that as I lost the fluid very quickly.
Anyone come across this?
Any suggestions, for gearbox specialists in East Sussex?
I hear getting the box out is a bit tight and I’m getting past the age where I should be lying under a car. If I had a ramp I might have ago.
