Replacement Chassis Rail Replacement Panels PAIR - Mazda MX5 Mk2, Mk2.5 1998 to 2005
These Chassis Rails have nuts welded to the inner parts just like the car originally had. They are better than the cheaper ones which have riv-nuts in place of these. We have found the riv-nuts fail from time to time.
Mk2 and Mk2.5 MX5 (and Roadsters) suffer from rust in the Front Chassis Rails. These rails support the front bodywork and anti-roll bar, because they are 300mm from a structural point, rust here will cause an MOT failure.
These replacements have been designed to fit directly into place after the existing rails have been removed (see picture). They have all the required connection points which are in galvanised steel. The pictures show the removed rail, the replacement in place and then welded in. They are correctly shaped to provide for a strong lapped seam weld.
