November 2016 Suzuki Pre Underseal Inspection

Postby drumtochty » Wed Feb 08, 2017 4:16 pm

The good lady got her third Suzuki Jimny in November and we bought a new one as we keep them around 8 to 10 years.

Readers will have seen the pictures of the Mk4 underside in late 2015 and they are here.

Lets have a look at a new 2016 Suzuki Jinmy

Image

The area underneath the handbrake, no underseal there.

Image

The chassis rail where the front of the rear suspension connects plenty stonechip in certain areas and then missing for no apparent reason.

Image

Pickup point for the Transfer Box note the chassis rail is stonechipped but the bracket that holds the aluminium bracket is only painted.

Image

Front right hand side not much stonechip in this area.

Image

Front suspension pickup point note lack of stonechip.

Image

Plenty to stonechip here.

Image

Only painted areas around the front of the car.

Image

At the back of the car only the sides of the chasis rails are stonechipped the other areas are only painted.

Image

The front of the rear wheel arch is not stonechipped.

Image

The back of the rear wheel arch is say 70% done as the dirty bit is stonechiped but the cleanish bit is just painted.

No surprise then why they rust :x . Get it quick with the Dinitrol before it starts.
