Re: SPOT LIGHTS WIRING

Look for a Black with white tracer under the dash or in the engine bay. That's an ignition live.

Re: Coiled turqoise samurai

Nice! This Sj is coming along awesome with some great looking work! Looks like you got the link geometry pretty good and there's minimal roll steer :thumbup:

She's gonna be a little weapon offroad!

Re: Not Much Power

Your Sj will still be more than capable if it was back to the original spua and on smaller tyres. It's quite a bit of work to swap it back though as new perches will need to be welded onto the underside of the axle with the correct spacing for the 410 spring mounts. Even just some early 413 diffs wi...

Re: Vitara 1993 Fan relay question

Your vitara has a viscous coupling fan, not an electric one so there isn't a relay.

Re: Not Much Power

You want to find 4.3 ratio ring and pinions ideally. She'll be revving far too high on 4.6 or 5.1 diffs with 31" tyres. Unfortunately it's always going to be underpowered up hills with the 1.0 engine and 31" tyres, it will cope much better with lower diff gears though. You can use 98-04 grand vitara...

Re: Sazuki Sj Headlights Stuck On,.

Sounds like you've just wired the fog light switch up wrong. Is your Sj Jap or spanish?

Re: Maruti are now making the new Jimny

Yeah the reason they stopped bringing them in was because of emissions limits, they haven’t stopped making them.

My dad has one. Absolutely amazing bits of kit, so much nicer than the old jimny.

Re: For the Amateur

An experienced Mechanic should be able to change both sets of rear brake shoes in under an hour.

I can do a clutch on the ramp in an hour but I’d allow for 2 hours.

A whole Exhaust can be swapped in under an hour as long as the manifold to down pipe bolts come undone and don’t snap :lol:

Re: Jimny diff query

All rear jimny diffs are the same size so it will physically fit but you need to check the diff ratio matches the one you are taking out otherwise you'll end up with mismatched diff ratios and won't be able to use 4wd.

Re: Heater Matrix

You might get it out by unbolting the dash support bar, you need to move that bar at least a bit to squeeze it out. Trust me though it's really not that hard or time consuming to remove the dash. Have a look at this, it's for a lhd samurai but the process is pretty much the same, you just don't need...
