2006-Up MX-5 Miata top Installation–Don’t try this at home.

Miata is a DIY car and over the years whenever the soft top has needed replacement; many owners have found it a task they can do themselves. This may not be the case with the 2006 and newer MX-5. Replacing the soft top on these cars requires the removal of many, many interior components. This is definitely not a task for the faint of heart.

Miata Installation

The replacement of the MX-5 top requires the removal of the center, console, side sills, rear storage compartment panel, hoop trim panels, b-pillar trim panels, rear shelf panels, the cross bar assembly, seat-belt detachment and finally removal of the top frame assembly itself, all resulting in a large pile of interior pieces in the floor and a rather large collection of screws and plastic clips. Unless you have the tools you need and are completely confident in your ability to dis-assemble and re-assemble what seems like half the car; this is a job best left to the professionals.

Sport Motoring offers a full array of services for the MX-5 Miata including the sales and replacements of soft tops. Miata Soft tops can be purchased in our Decatur location or online at call for scheduling and availability.
