- My model of MX-5 is: 07 NC Icon
- I’m based near: Batley
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: Manual hard top removal
Bought my hard top from Ebay and when I collected it, the vendor fitted it to my car with his dad while I was fitting the standard parts to his car after swapping fitting kit parts. Now I’ve come to remove it, despite undoing everything as per the handbook, I can’t even move it!
My NB had hinged plates over the Frankenstein bolts but the NC’s are different and the instructions are to push DOWN on them and slide the roof back and off - there’s no play in them and even with all latches etc undone, the roof is solid as a rock. Is there a technique to this that I’m missing? HELP!
