I would say with 99% certainty thats its not a normal standardized functioning of some system (like abs)

I'll tell ye why, bcus when i give it the beans, the "micro-ziiizz" is somewhat proportionate to the amount of beans im giving it.

I’ve had it since day 1, I love the mechanical gears noise, but I’m convinced the zizzy grinding noise just isn’t right, but hope I’m wrong and it’s just a Jimny quirk.

I have thought this also, have used the Hill Descent now a good few times it does sound like a very quick short burst of the sound you get when using it.

It's not an exhaust shield vibrating and then expanding and going quiet with heat is it?

I think this sounds like bulletin Q-A6G-004 applies to this (Tensioner bearing in transfer box).
