Miata Instrument Cover

Postby talmiddle » Tue Feb 11, 2020 11:21 am

I am replacing the instrument cover on a 94 Miata. Is there anything else I should do while the old cover is off?

Nothing else to do, except maybe take a little time to do some housekeeping. Dust likes to collect underneath covers, especially if you drive a lot with the top down. Dirt seems to get in everywhere.
If the car has spent some years out in the sun the cover will be brittle and most likely the tabs will break off as you try to remove the cover. If any break off they will stay in clips in the dash. Easy enough to remove, and the retaining clips should still be fine. I'm guessing the cover may already be cracked, most common reason to replace them.

Yes, the tabs are already broken and the cover rattles like crazy. Getting the old one off should be easy.
