2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

OMG this was a sweet install. Superbly engineered and I was done in about 2 hours doing it solo.. Such small visibility and the paint job on it was outstanding, powdered coated? Instructions great, hardware was top notch, torqued the bajesus out of it no fear of snapping, and the bracket to hold the bumper trim was super solid. Could not rate any higher. Added a picture with my bike rack but mainly installed to pull a tag along trailer. 502239


No issues. Working great.

fit like a champ, good instructions, no problems. 519470

Fit perfect and looks great. I enlarged the rear hole and used it to fish both bolts and plates into correct position. They sent 4 fish wires and I used all 4. 449700

My installation was not for a Miata, but for my 2018 Fiat 124 Spider. The instructions were very clear and also apply to the Fiat. The muffler should be removed rather than just lowered, it makes the installation so much easier. The facia brackets that are included are Miata specific, they will not fit the Fiat. In time I will fashion some myself. The most time consuming part of this project was making the access holes larger, but even that only took about 10 minutes to do both. The clearance of the receiver to the light pod is not an issue for me since I am using this product for a bike rack. Some tips for installation 1. After fishing the carriage bolts into position, do NOT remove the fish wire until you are ready to put on the nut, it's easy to lose the bolt in the frame. 2. Install one side of the receiver at a time, it's heavy and nearly impossible to hold up to the frame to line up all four bolts. 3. Take off that muffler, you'll be glad that you did. This is a great product, and ready to install. I highly recommend it. 639385

Perfect fit and very good installation instructions. I use it for a luggage carrier only and it functions very well for that 607542

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Installed on a 2015 MX-5 Club Sport (with factory ground effects) and a after-market Good Win Racing muffler. Used some inexpensive car ramps to have easier access underneath. Got some metal cutting bits online to grind the frame holes bigger (the only 'annoying' step) with my electric drill, which was easier than expected. Rest of the installation was a breeze. I found it easier to remove the muffler rather than 'lower it' as the instructions say. Once installed, everything fit factory perfect (someone suggested the Club Sport ground effects may require trimming, that's not true, it doesn't touch anything). Now, the GWR Muffler did 'touch' since it is a little fatter than factory. That was solved by going some longer/adjustable muffler hangers (lowering muffler 1 inch). Took about 30 minutes to install, plus 30 minutes messing with drill and making holes larger, and 15 minutes to remove existing muffler. That's being careful and patient. I'd say this install is a 6/10, not a 10/10. Single person not a problem. 590683

Hitch was not too difficult to install, but was definitely easier with two people. The instructions say to drop the exhaust, but it is easier if you remove the muffler all together, which is only two extra bolts. It looks great installed, even with the extra bumper lip on the Club trim level. It sits very close to the bumper and looks very high quality when installed. 554713

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch # C11435 be Visible after Installed on 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11435 referenced in your question is a Class I trailer hitch and is confirmed to fit your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata. The hitch will always be somewhat visible when looking at your vehicle from behind, whether or not it is being used. The installed hitch though will blend in nicely under your MX-5 along with the exhaust and frame. I have attached an image that shows what the MX-5 will look like with the hitch installed as well as the installation details...

  • Understanding the Towing Safety Information Table in Curt Hitch Instructions for a 2017 Mazda Miata
  • It took me a couple of minutes but I finally found that table. That is actually in the instructions for the hitch # C11435 for the 2017 Mazda Miata. The table is laid out kind of weird. It does make it look like the top row of numbers is tongue weight. But that is the gross trailer weight and the tongue weight is usually 10 to 15 percent of that. So usually a Class I hitch is rated up to 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 200 pounds tongue weight. But with that said you also have...

  • Bike Hitch & Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Mazda Miata RF Launch Edition
  • For your 2017 Mazda Miata we have the Curt hitch part # C11435 as a confirmed fit that would work well. At one point Curt was very strict about requring a stabilizer strap with non-supported loads like bike racks but at this time they have softened on that and instead only recommend it. This is a 1-1/4 inch hitch and is the only size we have for your vehicle. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR.

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 BMW X1 and Mazda MX-5
  • For your 2017 BMW X1 the best hitch for carrying a bike rack is the Draw Tite part # 76018 as it does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack like the Curt hitch does. For your 2017 Mazda MX-5 we only have a Curt hitch like the part # C11435 which will require you to use the stabilizer strap part # 18050 when carrying a bike rack. Based on this I'd recommend you go with the hitch for the BMW. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part...

  • Would Kuat Sherpa Work Well with 2016 Mazda Miata with Curt Hitch Installed
  • It can be a bit interesting fitting the stabilizer strap part # 18050 to a platform bike rack like the Kuat Sherpa part # SH22B but basically you have to run the strap from the trunk lid to the base of the rack where the rails meet shank of the rack. This would be an excellent bike rack though. Kuat makes some of the best bike racks available so I know you will like it with your 2016 Mazda Miata with Curt hitch # C11435 installed.

  • Recommended Hitch Cargo Carrier for Spare Tire on 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata

You can use a compatible cargo carrier and we have the following to choose from: 17x46 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18145 19x47 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18110 20x60 Rola Packer Cargo Carrier # 59530 20x48 Surco Cargo Carrier # 52017 The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11435 is the correct hitch fit for...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata for Towing Jet Ski
  • Yes, the Curt hitch part # C11435 is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata and would have enough capacity for pulling a jetski trailer. It has a 2,000 lb capacity which would be more than enough. For trailer wiring you'd then need the part # C56300 which is a confirmed fit. This installs by plugging inline with the taillight connectors for an easy install. For a ball mount you'd then want the part # C45521 and ball part # A-80 and pin/clip part # F-4.
