My saga was n August 2016. I tried digging out the old e-mails but the parts diagram from Karl in parts dept at Lookers Vauxhall, Yardley tel 0121 700 7703, was missing. What is referred to in my e-mail was ensuring part numbers 1-7 inclusive were sent out with the tinted screen and new rubbers. ( maybe the rubbers were included in those numbers, can't remember )
My contact at Autoglass who was attentive and most importantly, listened, was David Denton in Cardington, Beds. He used to be a fitter and knew what I was talking about. Nice man. Good, old fashioned customer service.

If he's still there he can be contacted on david.denton@autoglass.co.uk

My car is a 2.6 V6 petrol saloon index KC03 GNU, just on the off chance that they have a copy of all the bits ordered for mine. If they want my name etc, lease pm me. ( my name isn't Paddy Flannery )

2 years later, the screen is still nice and snug in the frame.

Please let me know how you get on and good luck. In my saga, it was worth insisting on genuine parts and David Denton didn't question it, he went ahead and asked Vauxhall Yardley to send the diagram to me via him and asked me to list the parts I needed.

The first two MX5's (pop up headlights and the facelifted one) are great little cars

Hi
Im strugling with the rear wiper on my 95 estate. It started slowing down and stopping before it finally stopped working alltogether. Got 2 different motors from ebay now, but both og them where also stuck. The motors just click and try to move but cant. Tried connecting them straight to a battery to rule out poor wiring but still just a click from all of them. Everyone i see online also seems to have a fair amount of rust around the spindle. These are built like a not servicable item and are bolted together with no easy way of getting them opened. In desperation i took an Angle grinder and cut the bolt heads of one of the mechansims to get to the gearbox inside. Everything looked fine with plenty of grease in there. My theory is that its the spindle itself that gets stuck in rust.
Have Anybody succesfully ressurected one of these? Or can a rear wiper mechanism from a newer Opel/Vauxhall be modified to fit? As all the omega rear wiper motors out there seems to be really past their prime:p

Many years ago I was running a 2.5 auto Senator A2 and had an earlier Senator A on the drive so decided to get rid of the A2 and buy something smaller/more economical for general running about purposes.Went to Bawtry auctions [nearest auction house] and at the end of the night I'd bought a 3L Senator B auto :D :D

You know it made sense .....  :y :y :y :y

Poly fronts are about 70 a pair now and will last the cars life.I was sceptical when mine were fitted as thought it would be to severe but they work well and take the car where you point it .

Backs are around 20 but will either require some engineering with studding to remove and refit or a big press and a few quid in the garages coffee pot.

After fitting alignment is essential and should cost around 60/70...place near MacDonalds off A2070 do it think they are called Tyre Pro or similar.

Doing it yourself then ?

Thanks. :y

 Not sure yet but, yes it is Protyre previouly Tyreweb, have quoted 180 but cannot supply poly bushes. The Vx dealer has quoted 231, with TC, with genuine parts.

But, if others confirm that it is straight forward to do the front bushes then I might go down that route. The question is do I want to be crawling around on the floor, when I could just let the professionals take the strain. :D ;)
It's only an advisory note, presumably on an MOT pass certificate. If it drives all right I should leave it until next year. A lot can happen to a 16 year old car in a year.
My Rover Streetwise has had advisories on drive shaft gaiters for the last three years, but it keeps passing MOTs. Some examiners feel obliged to pick a fault on every 16 year old car, lest people think they are not trying.
