Our 2005 Vitara

The place to socialise, and relax, if it doesn't fit into anything below it fits here, so tell us that joke, or share that story of your last off-road escapade, but remember new comers the virtual drinks are on you!

It's a cracking little GV you've got! Can't beat heading to the coast 👍
Thanks Richy

Yes it's the Bolton Upon Dearne viaduct in Rotherham, my partners field is a few 100m away! Yes with the current situation looks like it's going to be a while before we'll be heading to the coast anytime soon.

Some nice walks around there it's by the Pennine Trial so you can travel for miles plenty of different routes to go at.

Very handy during the present strange times - we are lucky enough to have a lovely river walk close by - when the ground is not saturated :mrgreen:

Just to catch up a little on our Suzi's year,just after the last MOT in the spring I replaced the rear springs and shocks after an MOT 'Advisory' from a friendly MOT'r 8-) .
During the Summer I replaced the Cambelt/Water Pump/Tensioner and Aux Belts as I could find no record of them ever being done - it looked like it had been changed at some point but no record,reciept or sticker etc.
During the last drive there was a hint of braking instability,pulling,snaking etc so yesterday (because the sun was out :mrgreen: ) I removed both front calipers and cleaned up the metal parts of the Pads and also the Pad Carriers - hopefully that will have 'fixed' it as both sides were well stuck in with rust and road/brake dust.
