I finally got around to fitting the reverse camera. Supposed to take 1.5 hours :laugh:

Taking off the time spent having to constantly try to match Suzuki's diagrams with the real thing, and stopping off to underseal the bits revealed and get some dinitrol into the door step, took me nearer 4. (Still can't find what item 10 is supposed to be though, that holds the wire to the bottom of the glovebox rail, and I have some black sticky double sided sealant tape left over )

I'm not a professional, so it takes me a lot longer to do the job to my standards, if they can do it in 1.5 hours start to finish there are some corners being cut somewhere.

Anyway, I found the pollen filter behind the glovebox, right where you can change it without standing on your head in the footwell.



It is under the white panel that actually clips off easily. I was sure this is some sort of mistake, but I can't find any way to get the glovebox out without using a tyre lever, I'm not strong enough to "just pop it out" - hence the marks where the upper pegs go.

The result, I like the little shaded part that is the outline of the spare wheel. Now if only Suzuki could source some more unobtanium and make me a towbar & electrics that have only been on order since May, I'd be able to see the towball and drive it straight at the hitch.B)



Yes there is a right amount of Jimny lean on this one, I think it is worse than the Gen3, I pretty much have to duck under it and climb up into the drivers door like getting into a mosquito bomber :laugh:

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Push it to the nearest petrol station because the serpentine belt snapped. I assure you it took longer than a hour.

well i finaly got round to it fixing a small bit of stainless steel wire to the exhaust it was dooing my head inn , i fitted a new exhaust a couple weeks ago but there must be a slight difference in the new one as it catches the tow bar and rattles its head off , i tried all kinds of things , but in the end a small bit of wire to keep it away from the tow bar did the trick , if i could of got inn about with the small angle grinder i would of nipped a bit off the tow bar , but everything is so tight and close ,

When I put a third party back box on my Gen3 it rattled on the towbar, IIRC, I took the offending flange off the towbar and chopped a piece out to clear the tailpipe. The spares market must have measured wrongly when they copied the original.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

I think I would much sooner modify the exhaust than chop the tow bar. But I do a lot of towing.

It’s still there, transporters where too expensive so I just pushed it. I’m a AA member but they sent my account setup details to my co-signer rather than me for some benine reason.

Re: Update the reason why they wouldn’t come and get it is because the company I bought it off hasn’t paid the setup fee yet.

We are only talking about a scallop cut from the side flange about 1/8 deep, just enough to stop it rattling. It was one of those Towtrust or Towsure ones with the big side flanges that bolt to a crossbar. I doubt if it weakened it enough to worry about. I suspect that the back of the chassis would break off first.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Exhaust i'd push a reasonable sized bar in the end
then bend it away from whatever it's touching

We got it fixed, thank you very much for the offer though.
It took three hours to get it there but we got it there in the end :dry:
