    Chirping noise sounds like coming from left front with top up or down.   Feels like it could be a suspension noise and can’t really id the exact location.  Seems more noticeable a few minutes after driving.  Mazda hasn’t been able to determine any issue.  What do you think Miata-ers?

    May or may not be your issue, but I had a chirp that was driving me nuts and I wrapped the hood latch with a little electrical tape and it went away. I’ve seen this same problem on several NAs, worth a shot, and it’s cheap and easy. I have to replace the tape every year or so.

    Chirping on the NA is many times the speedo cable…speed related…temperature also…slight wiggle of the speedo needle

    Hi Dave,

    Turns out your ‘cheap and easy’ solution worked LIKE A CHARM.  Thanks man.

    Glad to (not 😉) hear it! I do have to give credit where credit is due. Gerry Downs was the one who clued me in on the trick… on my own car probably 5 or 6 years ago.
