Wanted Items / FC Turbo heat shield
« on: November 28, 2017, 11:55:41 PM »
Perhaps a bit of a long shot but does anyone happen to have a turbo heat shield for an FC Turbo II? (S5 if it makes a difference)

I threw mine out as it was pretty rusty but I'd like to put some sort of heat protection back in now


2nd generation RX-7's / Drivers door won't unlock
« on: October 22, 2017, 05:46:15 PM »
I'm hoping someone might be able to help me with a recent issue with my FC convertible..

Went to unlock it after work one day a week or so ago and while the lock turned, the drivers door won't open. The passenger side unlocked fine but it feels as though the drivers lock won't turn enough to disengage the lock.

I've taken the door speaker out and am able to get my hand in and manipulate the rod that goes from the interior lock/unlock switch to the lock mechanism. I can pull it locked, but when pushing it to unlock it feels as though theres some resistance, the switch won't stay up in the fully unlocked position

Has anyone else had a similar issue to this and can offer any advice? Ideally I'd get the door card off but it doesn't look as though its going to be particularly easy/possible with the door closed

Cheers :)

2nd generation RX-7's / Convertible top replacement recommendations
« on: January 27, 2017, 07:58:34 AM »
Its not top of my pressing issues list at the moment but I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get the top replaced on my Vert this year as its got the typical tears near the drains

Are there any convertible owners on here that can recommend a place to get this done? I'm midlands based so nearer the better please

Also can anyone comment on whether its worth going for a cloth hood over a standard vinyl replacement?

Cheers :)

Parts for sale / FC TII emissions stuff £20
« on: September 09, 2016, 12:17:36 PM »
Got some emissions bits and bobs that I've taken off my S5 Turbo II due to getting a decat exhaust.

Air pump and bracket, ACV, top bit of the split air pipe, AWS solenoid, couple of vacuum solenoids. All were working fine on the car as far as I know, only taken them off as they're not needed

Anyone willing to give me £20 for the lot? Might even take offers as I don't want to throw them away but equally I can't really be bothered with ebay  ;D

Wanted Items / FC PCV valve
« on: September 05, 2016, 10:44:52 PM »
As per title, I'm after a standard PCV valve for my FC as I managed to snap a couple of the nipples off it while renewing vac lines

I could mod something else to fit or buy a brand new one, but if anyone has a cheap, used one kicking about it would make my job much easier!

Thanks :)

2nd generation RX-7's / Fuel Pump gasket
« on: August 17, 2016, 03:09:10 PM »
I'm going to be changing/uprating my fuel pump shortly and was wondering if anyone knew of a UK source for the gasket which goes between the tank and the plate/cover for the fuel pump?

Seen some for sale in the US but was hoping to get something a bit quicker. I could ask at my local Mazda dealer but they messed up on the last bits I needed there so was wondering if there was any where else I could try?

Cheers :)

New to MRC - introduce yourself / Hello from FC owner!
« on: August 07, 2016, 11:28:32 PM »
I signed up to this forum a while ago but forgot about it until now somehow! So I figured I'd best say hi  ;D

My names Adam, had my FC vert since December last year and am really loving it, I bought it mostly stock but have done a few things to it since then. I've fitted a new radio and fixed the speaker wiring, removed an alarm that didn't work, lowered it on mazdaspeed coilovers at the front and ohlins dampers with buddy club springs at the rear. I've also fixed other bits like the roof mechanism

Currently I'm refurbing a set of 16" BBS RG alloys to go on it to replace the 15" BBS and I've got a Racing Beat Rev II exhaust waiting to go on once I've sorted out all the other supporting mods!
