Catalyst

Postby chasbroon » Mon Jul 25, 2016 5:38 pm

I will need a new exhaust catalyst shortly. I have a 2003 MK 2.5 Sport 1.8.
Mx5 parts do not have one in stock and also state that Mazda no longer make them. The MK 2.5 model apparently has a different catalyst to the standard MK 2, for which catalysts are readily available.
Can anyone help please?

Go to your local exhaust centre and see them.

There is a legal issue with cars after a certain date but I think the local exhaust centre will have something in stock that should do the trick.

Do not try to tell then how to fix it or what MX5 parts has said, just put it in and hope they return it with a new Cat.

Thanks guys for the replies.

I checked the link to the EBay site you indicated and have emailed my registration number to them at their request for them to check compatibility.
I believe the MK 2.5 sport has a different length catalyst to the standard MK 2.

We will see.
