Upholstery Question from Paul Papandrea

Submitted on 09/07/2009

The zip on the window of the hood has broken can you repair.Please give me a price and how much notice i would need to book it in. Thank you Model: Mazda MX5


I had a Mazda MX5 and the little tag/pull strap broke. I managed to take a normal key ring and loop it through if you get what i mean. Then i sprayed some silicone spray all the way around the zip from the inside making the zip much easer to do up and down, Putting less stress on my now, 'new' key thob/pull cord zipper. Also i found that if you didn't undo it to the very fullest distance (about a couple of inches short) it made it easer to do up.

If the zip itself has come away from the vinyl then i recommend you go to a trimmer. You can find these at the bottom of the page.


Kind Regards
