Call http://www.planetmiata.com/ and ask them for one, that is really a must have item, i locked my keys in the trunk once on my '91 Miata, that sucked!!!

That remote lever in the center console was not added until 1992 :mrgreen:

That is the reason I bought a '92.

my key only works 1 in 50 tries to the trunk. I no longer use it except to store stock parts.

The BF has a trunk release :( And he uses the key more than the lever!

i have a 94 and actually disengaged the trunk release in the center console for safety/security reasons. the trunk is really the only place i can lock things up in.

i'd consider getting new keys hole thingies and keys made, rather than installing a trunk relase.

I kinda like the option of not having the trunk release. A good place in the future for my steering wheel(quick release/security)

or lift up i forget which. i think either one works

If you pick up a new or used lock cylinder, you can have a locksmith key it for your key and it shouldn't cost that much.

On my old LE, I had new lock cylinders for my doors done and it was only $20!

I did the same thing, the only way in is with a key.
