The Miata has always had one of the best feeling shifters on the planet. But as they get older, some of the components start to wear and it slowly loses precision. You might not even notice, but it's not what it was. Luckily, it's easy to rebuild, and you can access everything from inside the car.

This kit includes all the pieces you need to make your shifter feel new again. All components are factory Miata parts.

For 2001-05 6-speed transmissions built after August 2001. Please note, we are updating all our kits to include the newer Mazda small shift boot. The boot included with your kit may differ from what is in the photo above.

I recently purchased a MSM with about 90,000 miles on and I have to say I've never felt a shifter assembly as sloppy as the one in it. After doing some research and looking into some forums I decided to change my tranny/diff fluid along with this kit. I've never drove a new or low mileage MSM but if I had to guess, I would say my shifter fells the same as new. No more notchy shifts or grinds. This is an easy install and exact fit. I couldn't be happier with this product. I've decided that i'm going to do this repair every 60,000 miles along with the fluids.
