Book Description

18 Jan 2007 Do It Up!
Arguably the Mazda MX-5 was single-handedly responsible for the revival of the sports car market. Examples of this popular roadster are now plentiful and affordable on the second-hand market. This practical guide provides expert advice on how to breath new life into a used and perhaps tired example of this modern-day classic. From preventative maintenance, to the renewal of worn components and details of known problems and how to fix them, the clearly written, comprehensively illustrated text provides all the information required to enjoy an MX-5 on a budget.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality Colour Photo Guides 14 Aug 2007
Format:Hardcover
Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the guides in this book!

It is written in a plain easy-to-follow way for readers of any proficiency from non-mechanically minded to the more competent.
Really you'll want to buy this book if you plan on doing a few jobs yourself including changing the cambelt, starter motor, driveshaft, dampers, brakes, repairing electric windows.

The guides are really excellent with brilliant colour photos, tools required, etc. Though not as thorough as Rod's workshop manuals, the quality of the pictures make the guides in this book much easier to follow and the little boxes containing tips are really good.
The routine maintenance section is quality too especially for the novice.
There are some great guides to hood fitting & instrument dial face changing too.
This book also has a good list of part suppliers and websites at the back of the book.
Please note that this book is not really designed to help with fault-finding for which I would highly recommend Rod's workshop manuals (also available on Amazon).

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good and lives up to its title! 12 Jun 2010
By Tin Tactoo VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
I brought this based on reviews within this section and I wasn't disappointed although it does not cover everything such as the hood section like renewing one etc., but as a basic no frills book about 'the basics', its worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars MX 5 for the first timer 11 Jan 2010
Format:Hardcover
I bought an MX5 as a hobby with no previous experience. This book is the ideal companion, allowing me to maintain an repair it myself at minimal cost. It's a bit like having an expert on hand in the garage to guide you step by step. Excellent.
