Default What did you hate about the pajero and how did you fix it

Let's be honest no vehicle (that I could afford anyway) is perfect, they all have off quirks or little bugs that we who like to tinker often find creative aka genius ways of fixing, thought it would be cool to do a thread of such genius solutions

-glove box rattles, did the common self adhesive rubber feet lined up with the standard rubber stoppers to add pressure.

-low beam headlights were utter garbage, replaced globes with slightly modified osram H9 globes made a world of difference for $18 and is only 100 lumon above legal (without washers) a good useful colour temp too.

I've only had the NT for a couple of months but so far I've;
Added a proper foot rest
( http://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum/...ad.php?t=24211 )

And modified the Traction Control system so it works when the rear diff lock is engaged
( http://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum/showthread.php?t=16233&highlight=diff+lock+mod )

Issue - dash rattle on corrugated dirt.

Fix - No real fix other than to lower tyre pressures and try to find the speed that the vibration reduces at. Failing that, buy an 80 Series / Patrol with a rubber isolated body on chassis. :-)

I have also pretty much decided that as far as dash rattles go... I guess this is my life now.

The foot rest looks interesting, have to look into that.

I also hate that my rear door squeaks where the rubber locator block fits into the metal receiver once a week i now give it a spray with some silicon spray

You boys (or girls?) may find this dash rattle thread interesting.

http://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum/...ad.php?t=33057 (I know this is for gen 4's but hopefully there is some info transferable to you gen 3's??)

I should have added dash rattle to my list of hates - I've done the 'cable tie mod' too

I find the door squeaks also if I get sand or dirt rubbing between the door seal and the body. It's pretty evident as there are wear marks from the 70,000kms before I bought the car. I clean that out and spray the seal with silicone spray also.

I found out after much 4wding without a lift that theres a bar connecting the two sides of the suspension in the rear. It's just infront of the diff and I'd bent it back to touch the diff. Funny though it's attached on two studs and when I removed it I found two threads next to these studs. Thought If I can straighten this up I'll bolt it as well as so theres 4 attachment points.

Long story short I couldn't fix it so found one at the wreckers off a Gen 3 no less which surprise surprise uses all 4x attachment points.
