Where Does Mazda and Fiat Hide The Key To This Door On the 2017 Spider and Miata?

It's obvious after you see it, but the key for the cargo box in the Mazda Miata and Fiat Spider is not apparent to some.





Convertibles are unusual in that due to the soft-top they can be prone to theft. For whatever sinister reason, thieves will cut a convertible top when breaking a window is just as simple. Mazda and Fiat thought ahead to this hazard and have a lockable compartment in the center console. There is no glove box in the 2017 Fiat 124 Spider or Mazda Miata, so this is the only lockable compartment.

The difficulty for some owners, particularly those with keyless entry, is finding the mechanical key that operates the lock on that box. As you can see in the video, the fob has a small detent and a small lever that one simply pushes to release the inner mechanical key. This is not unique to the 2017 Mazda Miata and Foat 124 Spider, but what is unusual is the need to access it regularly. Most cars with keyless entry have a hidden key in the fob that can come out.
