Hi, for new parts try japanese auto solutions, they are pretty good.

Also many mazda dealers can source parts for you, sometimes cheaper but often slightly longer wait.

Or you could try a breakers, many mentioned in for sale section here.

Places like Bellhill Motors offer parts from scrapped Bongos. This part shouldn't be in regular demand so I'd hope you could get one and iwthout excessive cost. [-o<

Funnily enough, we've just recently been discussing the risk of putting the roof up in a wind. From your experience, it sounds like leaving it down is prudent :?

Good luck getting it fixed - keep us posted on how you get on.

Mazda Warrington (ask for Shaneel in Parts Dept) are VERY helpful - she guarantees to get any Bongo bits for you although, as above, if not already in Europe (many bits are) it can take a while.

Also, try Ian Taylor in Market Drayton, not a million miles from you - 01630 656006
