Good, thought you might be a closet veggie for a moment! :laugh:

yes it was the little black box inside the solenoid box. Its sort of glued together with what looks like hot melt glue. Lasts a while, then goes brittle and leaks.

When I phoned winchmax up to ask about spares they even told me that that part is not waterproof. Surprising really when its meant to be stuck on the front of a car in all weathers. I bought the new ones from amazon for about £20 i think. Not as nice to look at, but do the job.

On the replacement receiver I drilled some small holes and filled it with electricians silicone (CT100 I think its called, but any silicone would do). Not tried dunking it yet, but ok so far. I also wired a switch onto the dash for in/out as a backup to the wired winch controller and two wireless ones.

With a slight departure from the title, yesterday just after 9:00pm I decided to service the engine oil etc.
I tend to purchase service items when they are cheap and store until required. So I dumped the oil out, only after realising I could not remember the location of the new oil I had purchased some time earlier. Luckily a comprehensive search found said oil and the service was completed in 20 minutes, 10 of which went on the the great oil hunt. The moral of the story is always find your service items before you disable the vehicle. :laugh:

I did make me appreciate again that the Jimny is a fantastic vehicle for home service, 10 minutes labour and £21 in service parts, what's not to like.

Right, I'll see what I can do about that - good to know! I'll see if I can get hold of some CT100 silicone.

Yay!


Is it all ok now that you have used it for a while? No overheating or coolant loss?

Fitted Martin’s BigJimny armrest. Video instructions spot on - didn’t rush it - particularly cutting the foam, seat fabric and seat covers.

A great upgrade, much much better than the Armster. Performs like an OEM product. Thank you Martin. An excellent product and super quick service.

I agree, I don't use mine on urban drives, but on dual carriage ways and motorways it is superb.
