Service Schedule and routine care/maintenance mk2.5

Postby 4potDOHC » Sat Jun 11, 2016 2:29 pm

Hi, can anyone point me in the right direction of a service schedule for mk2.5 please. From what I can gather, engine oil is every 9000 miles, but, fully or semi-synthetic?
I've not yet seen a schedule for gearbox or diff oil types and intervals.
Also, is there info on all the water drainage holes/pipes as I'd like to clear them too.
Thanks.

Might be of additional assistance.
TBH, forget the 9k oil changes now. They are old engines after all.
If it's a keeper, drop them to 6k if it's not burning off quicker & always with a genuine Mx5 filter.
Drop the diff & gearbox oil out as soon as.
When you do the diff for God's sake make sure the refill nut is out first. :wink:

Get new crush washers from MX5 parts.

One for sump, one for the gearbox and two for the diff.

I would buy an owners manual off ebay if you do not have one, if you have one it is in there, apart from the drain holes
