I was hoping this page could become a resource for folks who want to fit a reversing camera, or any other bits n bobs onto the gen 4 jimny.

Ive seen a few posts on them, but nowt too in-depth for a monkey mechanic such as myself.


I'll add my own when i pick her up next week, starting off with the wind deflectors. (fingers crossed).


Any input would be greatly appreciated.


Cheers.

Not being negative but if it's a dealer accessory and you fit it yourself, how is the warranty affected? Just with it still being a new car and under manufacturers warranty.

Ahaaa, good point.

Funny though, because quite a few people have now fitted stuff themselves, I wonder if they have considered this too?

Thats got my attention Lambert, thanks for the pointer. Sheesh, looks like i'll have to ring and ask them.

If it saves you from having a warranty rejected it's worth a phone call.

Was only £75 for the dealer to fit mine, well worth getting it done before you collect. That said, I believe the kit does come with install instructions.

Hi guys,

Are they instructions for the Jimny though? As in... what panels to take off etc?

Sorry for the questions (like constantly) I am a lowly support worker, not a mechanic. #MonkeyMachanic :woohoo:

Andy, my advice, for what it's worth.

The cost of having it fitted is considerably less than putting right buggered up, wiring, head linings, etc.;)

Fitted the wind/rain deflectors and front & rear mudflaps myself.





Instructions are provided but aren’t the clearest, especially for the front mud flaps. A template is provided for them though that you tape on that gives you the location of where to drill the pilot holes. The rear flaps are a doddle and the deflectors are even easier.

Wish I took photos of the process as I could have uploaded them here. If you struggle with any of the above give me a shout.

I fitted the towbar and wiring kit myself and the instructions provided are just a series of illustrations (probably to avoid translation issues). When the paperwork indicates that you should remove the rear bumper it simply tells you to refer to the workshop manual. I can't see me getting a manual anytime soon. With regards to interior trim removal, this thing is screwed together much like any other modern Japanese car and you quickly get a feel for how to remove parts.

The Camera instructions, told what panels to remove, where to route and clip the wires to (cable ties provided with the kit), I found them very good and easy to follow.
