View Full Version : Cruise control clutch switch part question

Yesterday when I went to start my car a broken piece of plastic fell out from under the dash. I was in a hurry and didn't try to see what it was. When I pushed the clutch in it made a click sound and the cruise control did not work, Turns out that at the end of the switch on the clutch for the cruise control is where this plastic came from. There is a hole in the clutch pedal so that the switch plunger was popping through it.

I taped a penny over the hole and my cruise is working. Does anybody know if this is a replaceable part or is it something I'm going to have to make. If I have to make it I was going to carve a piece of tire and glue it to the clutch pedal. Yeah I know ghetto but I think it will work.

I hate to try and order this tiny part from Rosenthal because of shipping but there is no Mazda dealership in Sebring.

Usually this kind of thread starts with "My cruise control doesn't work, where should I start?". Luckily, you've started right at the cure. The most common problem is that little plastic stopper becoming brittle over the years and breaking off.

The penny trick will work for now but could damage the switch plunger over time. Better to order the correct part that is the correct thickness and snaps into place for another decade of reliability. Just call MM's guy at the Punta Gorda Mazda dealer and he'll have it for you fast and cheap.

Even with Rosenthal, I'm pretty sure shipping you a part that weights less than an ounce isn't going to cost much.

So you think that is a part that can be obtained? It's not part of the switch? I'm going to MM's to change my cooling belts in a couple weeks. I'll try Punta Gorda Mazda. Do I mention MM or Gearheads to get good service?

Yes, it's readily available. It probably cross references with a lot of other Mazda models too. If that dealer doesn't have one already, they'd have it by tomorrow. They could either mail it to you or you can pick it up right before the next bi-weekly meet and we can install it in the parking lot. Really though, it doesn't weigh anything and shouldn't cost much to send to your mailbox. If you mention Gearheads at the Punta Gorda dealer, they'll give you a discount. We've gotten parts from them before and they've always been top notch.

If you get me the part number I'll get it for you. Usually they have to order it and if the part is in Atlanta they have it the next day. If not then go to the Texas warehouse which takes 2-3 days. My parts CD is for a 99 but it should be the same if you can't find it.

That part should also be on a 2005 model which should make it available through 2015.

I just replaced that rubber plunger and clutch switch on my '93. I ordered from Rosenthal. I'll get the part number.

Yep, Clutch stopper bailed out broken on floor resulting in my hearing a clicking sound when first depressing then releasing the clutch. Thanks to this thread (chasing a failed cruise control) I ordered a new one from Rosenthal Mazda for under 3 bucks but with 6+ shipping. But I needed one and am to old, creaky and fat to tape anything in that spot. But, I will share a laugh.
Right after I got the new stopper, I opened the trunk of my Miata and lo and behold, I said "I don't remember putting the stopper loose in my trunk for safekeeping." I didn't after all. It was one of the trunk felt plugs and although I put in the new stopper, I am almost positive that plug, almost identical in size would have worked too. Just an observation, not a proven fix and my guess is that the plug would be noisy & devilish to get back out.
Oh yeah, the new stopper works fine now but did not fix my cruise control. I really didn't think it would because the adjacent for lights aren't working either, so I am checking out possible fuse or relay next.
