Miata Window Removal and Cheap Slow Window Roller Fix

-The part number I used is Everbilt 3/8 in. x 1 in. Nylon Spacer-815118 found at Home Depot

-Another part number I have seen used is Lowes 1-3/8" x 3/8 Nylon Spacer is used, P/N #880448 if you can find it.
-Grease used on the spacer and window track is Shin-Etsu typically found at Honda, P/N 08798-9013. Google the part number and it most likely will come up on Amazon for ~$15

The hole of the spacer is ok for the bolt hole on the window, however you will have to counter sink the head so it sits flush with the spacer so it can slide down the window track.

1. Remove window
2. Use a T30 Torx bit to remove the bolt holding the window roller
3. Countersink the nylon spacer and reinstall
4. Lube up the roller before reinstalling(NOTE: My window tracks were fairly clean. If yours have grime buildup I would recommend removing the window actuator and lubing the entire track as well as the roller)
