Miata NA (1991) Brakes & Rotors


Very straight forward.

Couple of notes

- On the rear brakes, the you DO NOT compress the piston with a C Clamp.  Use an allen wrench to turn a screw that compresses the piston
- you do not need to remove the 'key" when unwinding using the 4mm allen wrench.  you should be able to see the piston retract when turning.
- I had to use a hammer to gently tap the rotors as I rotated then to break them free.
- I released the parking brake
- I used a lift as couple of the bolts were on tight and extra room made access much easier to break free.

lots of good info on miata net and you tube
