Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)
You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.
New member with thanks
I'm new to the forum and joining to thank you for the technical information I have harvested and used as a guest since buying my first jimny two weeks ago.
- Towbar fitment and wiring guide, which worked perfectly.
- Rear seat removal.
- 4 wheel drive diagnostics! Investigation found vacuum pipes the wrong way around on the offside locking hub.
My Jimny is a 2001, 106k mikes, with no service history, so I am building the courage to tackle the cambelt next.

Crankshaft seal, as i said stuffed the first one, access not that great i found it hard to see if i was pushing the seal on square with the engine and screwed it up by not noticing that the spring had fallen off with all my fiddling.
Cambelt change - The factory service manual is very comprehensive and there are workarounds where it calls for the special tools, only tool i had to get was a bigger torque wrench (torque settings are one thing that should not be guessed at I came across a few example of ruined crank/cam shafts from the pulleys/cogs being installed at wrong torque while investigating how to do a cambelt change).
That being said from what from i read online 13BB engines are some of the easiest to work on.
