Another fruitless morning with rusted nuts. Abandoned until next weekend when I can borrow a Dremel and hopefully it wont be freezing rain as it is now.

I did exactly same about 2 days ago!


Is there any difference in the dark though. Have you tried them in the dark yet or just daylight?

So many of these around that are no different.

I tried them in the dark and lined them up on my garage door from about 20m away, they both looked the same. Osram certainly not brighter. Dont know what make the old ones were but they have a little 'pimple' on the tip.

Ok it was time to change the kingpins so it was off down to Martins (BIG JIMNY SHOP) to pick up two new sets of king pins bearings+oil seals + waterproof grease + copper silicone sealant.
This was my first time at replacing the king pins, so I down loaded the (how to? guide) from this forum and printed it off, then I just got on with doing the job.
I even removed the bolts on the backing plate, so I could copper grease the bolts as you need to remove them if your are place the wheel bearings at a later date (you can do the job with out removing the bolts and leave the back plate in place .)
I've only replaced the driver's side at the moment as that side was leaking oil and the weather was so bad, rain and snow.
The top bearing was OK but the lower one was a right mess some of the top of the bearing was missing so the bearing started to disintegrate, here are some photos to look at,so if yours are leaking oil this is the time to replace them.









The job the takes about 2 hour and that was my first go at doing the kingpins, so if you have a go just take your time.

This weekend...

- I've removed the cone filter that the previous owner had fitted, and replaced it with the original airbox.

- I've put the Jimny back to 2WD manually because the vacuum hoses need replacing.

- I've bought some black Hammerite so that I can re-paint my tatty wheels.

Next up... Discs and pads. Can anyone recommend some good cheap(ish) ones that will be fine for everyday road use? I'll probably use eBay!

Eurocarparts do Pagid brake parts which seem to get good reviews. Just got a set for myself.

Did you use their own website or eBay, or another method?
