Are you saying a 12000lb capacity winch would pull the bar off the car, if the bar was rated at 9500lb (give or take)?

As you seem to later imply, this would presume there was no movement of the...

I've never seen anything like that before- and while it's a great idea I personally wouldn't trust it. The water will run up parallel to the bonnet and will (potentially) lift that flap off.

The Pajero Mini was never sold in Australia. I would doubt there would be any expertise here, though possibly there may be someone. Just don't expect help but keep up hope.

For the cost (2 per vehicle) with removal and reinstallation of the dash and steering wheel, it comes to around $5k. The comment (and that price) was made to me by a non-Mitsi dealership who had...
