Default Wrong bolt 6 speed repair?

Yes, I removed the wrong bolt filling my trans while doing my clutch.

Anyone have a guide to repairing the trans after the reverse/5th counter lever falls into the trans?

This is the TSB on how to NOT do what I did:
05-012/02


I'd like to send any info to the shop owner where we were doing the swap so he can expedite repairing it and I can get my car back.

Open trans, find parts that are rattling around, put back in place. If your shop is a competent tranny shop, they should have absolutely no problem with it.

I don't know why you tried to pull a fill plug at all - 6-speeds fill through the turret.

I was under the car working and googled "miata 6 speed transmission fill plug" and removed the bolt that was circled in this pic: http://www.miata.net/garage/6mt_flui..._this_bolt.jpg

If I wasn't filthy and already covered in gear oil, I would have read the thread it links to...


I filled through the plug because all my previous miatae (save for the NC which was under warranty) were 5 speeds.
