Suzuki have acknowledged an issue with some Gen 4 (2019) Jimnys having a knock in the steering.

This occurs when pulling away with the steering turned.

Only supposed to affect certain VIN numbers but has also been found on Jimnys outside of the number range.

Replacement part available through dealer

Have they said what is actually causing it or are they just offering a recall/rectification?

I have not seen the bulletin. I heard it described as the Steering UJ which is replaced

Hi,

My Jimny was one of them. May I know where did you get the source from? Do you have any more details of the bulletin? I've been searching for it since December 2018. My dealer reported it in January. I'm still waiting for the parts.

Thank you

I can answer properly now I am back at my computer.

If your dealer is searching on the VIN number he may not find it as the bulletin is limited to a small number of VINs.

He should search on the model number which is A6G415 - look for bulletin Q-A6G-003

Now this is restricted to certain VIN numbers but I understand that VINs outside of the range are reporting issues. If yours is outside the range then the dealer should talk to the Technical Desk who have approved some out of VIN fixes already.

The bulletin has an embedded recording of the sound, which appears to not work on the copy I have seen :(

Thanks, I thought I was imagining things. Mine has an occasional knock when turning. Mine's due for its service soon, I'll make sure they attend to it.

I would get it reported they won't do it when they service it as there is never enough time and they will just re book you in again to have it examined for the knocking
