I'd have thought any motor factors would be able to get you some?

Standard rust. Custom dents. 1-of-a-kind scratches.

Hi Tony,
Sorry but I haven't been able to get hold of a radiator hose for your Jimny.
Thanks,

Fleet factors are nationwide I believe... It seems strange there are no rad hoses available for a Jimny in the uk. Online searches show good products from OZ but a long way to go for a bit rubber...
Thanks all for the info..
Cheers
Tony.

I got a top hose from Suzuki for my 2009 last year for about 12 quid having failed to find one elsewhere. I didn't think that was ridiculous.

Jess they look the part all right... Sheepish I presume it was from a main Suzuki dealer in the uk. I think I'll push for them first before going abroad.
Found this MegaZip I think they are Ukr who perhaps are a go between to Japan. Postage is steep, but the site offers some excellent exploded views of every Jimny engine and other parts, very good if you lack a workshop manual.
Check it out...

Thanks for all the help.

Yes, Suzuki in the UK. Might as well ask, you can always laugh at the price. I've done that plenty with Toyota! If it's only in the 12-15 range they may not have much wriggle room, but I always ask for best prices. Again, not too much experience with Suzuki, I don't do many miles in my Jimny, but Toyota have 10-30% they can discount over the counter on pretty much every part, but you have to ask. And some parts guys will be less helpful than others.

That Megazip site is interesting. Again Toyota, but I've imported plenty of parts without issues from the UAE. You have to remember you'll get charged VAT on the part and the courier cost, and the courier will probably change you 10-15 for their admin fee in paying that VAT. I doubt it would be worth it for a couple of hoses.

I had to buy a top hose from Suzuki. It was an emergency job and I couldn't even find a universal one locally,even Halfords.

I started off high and worked my way down ever since :-)
