- My model of MX-5 is 2009__PRHT
- I’m based near: STOCKPORT__
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: __NOISY CENTRAL LOCKING CATCH BUZZING NOISE AND RATTLING
I resolved this in my car the other week…
Take both the button housing and handle housing off and replace the compressed foam packing with double sided number plate tape… Works a treat, costs about 5p.
Be careful taking it apart, the clips are fragile and it doesn’t come apart as easily as one might expect
Thanks for the advice, are there any drawing showing the assembly and details of the catches/connection of the fixings of the covers?
Have a look at https://www.miata.net/garage/tsb/09-035-08-2001.pdf.
Are you anywhere near West Yorkshire?
about 30 mins from the centre of the universe, what my wife calls Holmfirth
thanks for the info, but I have been advised to remove the black plastic cover and reinstalled using double sided tape, and I cannot see how to remove it, It was difficult to describe what I was looking for as the clips?were supposed to be fragile, thanks for the response, I have filed the drawings for future ref
If you want to have a ride over to Ferrybridge (WF11), I’ll sort it out for you!
I’ll be honest, it took me a while to locate the clips and them remove it without breaking anything, but the quietness is worth it!
