How to change brake pads and rotors on a Mazda MX5 Miata ND ND2- installing Carbotech XP10/XP8
I did not mention it the video but it is recommended to clean the rotors with a brake cleaner prior to the installation. Many times the rotors have a thin layer of oil to protect them from rusting prior to being installed. However the rotors I had where coated instead hence I did not see any need for that.

In todays video I will be showing how to install new brake pads and rotors on my 2019 MX5 30th Anniversary.
The car has 4 piston Brembo calipers up front and standar done piston calipers that is shared amongst all 2015-2021 MX5 ND and ND2 models.
I will be installing Carbotech XP10 on the fronts and Carbotech XP8 on the rears. I will also be installing OEM brembo brake rotors.
WIth regards to the brake fluid I will be running Motul RBF600 however I will do the fluid change once the we are close to the season start
