Coil pack replacement - NB

by Chess Martin

You should be able to swap out a '99 Miata coil pack in about 30-45 minutes the first time with a minimum of mechanical expertise, or even inclination in my case.

First, get the tubes and wires out of your way.

Next, remove the coil.

Put on the new coil in the logical reverse order...back wires, then bolts, then plug wires, then everything else. Hook the battery back up and take her for a spin. If it's like mine, she'll idle a bit strange for the first 10 minutes or so.

Good luck, and watch those knuckles.
