Free Wheel Hubs? Ironically Raptor4x4 has the best price...they’re normally dear I find...

Or axle hubs? I could do with having a spare pair of hubs fitted with new bearings sat in the garage ready for next time, like Brett does...

Have you got a pair of ABS hubs in?

Just having a cuppa before finishing off the offside front...

Offside all reassembled :)



And new Trail Gear front brake hoses fitted -



Next then? Bleed the brakes? Fill the diffs with oil?

Nah! Cuppa first ;) :lol:

Hmmm... I was scratching my head and searching for ages for the offside front caliper bolts? I’d put everything carefully in a tin as I was stripping it all down, so I couldn’t understand how I’d lost them?...

Went for a test drive after finding some replacements, and...



D’Oh! In the instruments! I’d taken the caliper off before calling the RAC for recovery!!! LOL Oh Well!

Hmmm, I’ve got the ABS warning light on though? Have to look at that during the week... All seemed well apart from that on the test drive though :)

Off for a beer and a shower and celebrate our 29th Wedding Anniversary:)

Thanks Dan’ ;)

Yes, quite chuffed, never done my own brakes before, always had the local garage do them, but figured I’d save on the labour, so rebuilt the cslipers and bled the brakes on my own... some silicon hose and an empty pop bottle!

Now sat in the garden with a magnum of Prosecco and the log burner on and some nibbles for starters...

Good man, it's always satisfying to develop a new skill!

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

I'm glad you've done your own brakes Dave. There's not a lot to it and you can see any leaks.

Bleeding isn't tricky. The only thing I haven't done yet is making up my own brake pipes but I ought to sort that out!

I've always considered getting a PRESS for home usage ... If you find a decent one that's suitable for our Rear Shafts and Front Hubs, let me know (maybe they can reduce cost for TWO???)

Normally, Mr. A. Grinder comes out to grind off the ABS Collar and Bearing, but only today I have found a local Community project called Shedheads. They have my two duff Rear Shafts with worn out bearings and decent ABS Collars "pressed" on. I asked them if they can heat up the AB collar and tap it off (then its re-useable) and maybe het up duff bearing and get that off too??? Then it'll be a trip to my friendly garage (they have a press) to pay them £10 a shaft to press bearing and ABS collar back on??? But IF i had a press, that would save me about £50 a year ...

Recently bought the same calipers - they came out of the box with no lubricant at all on the slider pins, so may be worth checking yours if you haven’t already greased them up!
