With it starting to warm up I got motivated and checked the air conditioner cabin filter (which I last changed 2 years ago).

I couldn't believe how bad it was after 'only' 2 years.

Old & new (same brand) for comparison...


However, the Pajero's cabin filter was like new compared to the wife's Forester (which I've had for 3 1/2 years and has never been changed by me)

Indeed!
Look like it should be replaced each yearly service.

They do wash out quite well in warm soapy water. Jiggle it in a bucket then a squirt with the hose.
Is pollen filter replacement not in the Job Description for W.I.F.E. ?

Was a bit unsure whether they would clean up. Just ordered 2 off e-bay..$25 total delivered from China..(quality..unknown, but worth a gamble). When they arrive I will try your washing suggestion..thanks

LED high mount stoplight

After noticing about a year ago that the later (NW & NX) LED high mount stop light is brighter than the NS-NT incandescent one, I've wanted to upgrade. Finally got round to it today after one came my way (thanks )

Original incandescent high mount stop light


Retro-fitted LED high mount stoplight


It doesn't really show in the photos, but the LEDs are noticeably brighter.

Day Time Running Lights

To continue the LED conversation 'theme' I swapped the ARB fog lights for Stedi LED day time running light / fog light combination lights.

Rather than wiring the fog lights (I've already have wired the fog light switch on the dash to operate the spot lights), I just simply have them connected to come on with high beam (not much fog in Adelaide )

DRLs on whenever the ignition is on


DRLs turn off whenever the headlights or parkers are on


Fog lights wired to high beam (surprisingly, they add quite a bit of spread to the OEM high beam).

Very nice...theyre great lights ay..i just skipped the drl and joined the two positives together and have them all come on with the foglight switch

You now need the arb led parker/indicators now ...much better than the originals and match the stedi fogs

Transfer case guard

Finally got around to buying and adding a transfer case guard

Currently have a Bushskinz intercooler guard and (Boo's Bash Plates have them for only $115 including delivery!)

I got sick and tired of punctures with the Bridgestones (3 unrepairable sidewall punctures in approximately 45,000km) so ended up chucking them and getting a se of the new BF Goodrich AT KO2's (I'd run several sets of BFG's on the NL for years without any issues).
