Got the last of the air out of the brakes. Another step closer to a rally car!

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Still being a bit of a noob with the Jimny I didn't realise that the drivers and passenger blades are different lengths. :(

So off I trot back to Halfrauds once again to get the correct pair - a Bosch AR 16U and an AR 18U.

Curious that when I checked the little book on the wiper-blade stand again, it is only the Bosch flat wipers that Halfords have made the mistake with - the other wiper brand alternatives for the Jimny state the two different sizes. Had I noticed that, I may have questioned it saying to use two AR 16 U blades.

My supplier (like a halfords kinda place) gave me the two different lengths and i gave him a bit of a protest as i was claiming that it should be two of same length. But he said that almost all cars have different lengths actually so i gave up and fitted them. Worked much better than the old ones.

With the usual trepidation Jimny was left with the stern looking man at the MOT station, “we’ll give you a call when it’s done” was our parting words.


I couldn’t wait for the call, with sweaty palms and a bead of sweat forming on my forehead I opened the door to the garage....


To be met with a big smiling face letting me know I’m all good for another year, not even an advisory! Happy days. I was fairly sure it was all ok before I dropped off the keys but I always get this pang of worry just before an MOT. Anyway I’m away to look at big light bars and suspension now ?

Hahaha better to be told you’re too early by the mot man than it’s expired by a police constable though.
