Re: White Fc Convertible

A last minute effort to release the bolt today before a weeks holiday was a success. Meant is I can truly relax for the next 7 days .. With a baby and 4 year old yay ..

No exciting pics this time, but a ruined bolt and socket done it .

Re: White Fc Convertible

Ok so a brief update, I have 1 stubborn nut on the subframe... Recessed and rounded. Otherwise the subframe would be out too. But slow progress is still progress. I apologise for the dull pics of my rusted nut. But a U.S pro Bolt extractor sockets have failed on it. I don't want to drill into it but...

These parts are still available from Mazda. I just ordered them last week at the local dealer.
How much are Mazda charging for a pair of door seals?
75 each from memory, that was last year. There more than the US aftermarket ones but not by a huge amount

Re: White Fc Convertible

Why do Mazda make the bumper removal so hard! Snapped bolts aside and the fact the top two bolts are so corroded that I'll struggle to remove them... Oh and the wing to.bumper bolts were so corroded and tight it's impossible to get to them and they just spin and spin...

Not a good day..

Re: Series 3 tyres, what's available?

I am a big fan of the Uniroyal Rainsport/rainexpert. Me too, after fitting them on my FD a long time ago, they out preformed the Bridgestone premium tyre in the wet.

Re: White Fc Convertible

Thanks for the replies! The reason I'm considering dropping the engine is the subframe would be getting removed too and all suspension etc, that with the extra height of the car would possibly make more sense removing from below? But I also agree from above is the traditional route and gives no prob...
