Rear number plate panel on UK Mk1 MX5

Postby EWANGO » Fri Aug 05, 2005 9:55 am

Hi I have a 1996 Gleneagles model and the rear number plate bulb holders have disintergrated! I bought two new holders from Mazda at ?80 - but I do not know how to remove the back panel - and neither does Mazda in Dundee!! Can anyone help me on this please?

Cheers ewango

Enjoy driving and the fact that the MX5 can be fixed by myself!

Yes

It is bolted through the boot. Take the trim off the inside all will be revealed. Don't forget the fixings under each light!

A main dealer didnae know how to remove the panel!?!?!?! :shock:

Going with my previous experience of Main Dealers it doesn't really surprise me.

Another reason why I will never go near a main dealer again! (well, apart from the odd spare part..........)
