Built into the disk brake assembly. More shoes and pads to replace. I was amazed at how thin the rear brake shoes are in the Dmax.

Re: Isuzu 2016 A/C Problem

Hi just to confirm. Mine is a 09/16 Dmax does your a/c connection under the bonnet look like this Thanks Joe Looking at the firewall it looks like a very solid mount and hard to believe it would crack inside the cab. The under bonnet rubber pipes look more of a likely culprit. Maybe faulty engine mo...

Re: Engaging 4x4 Low Range

Correct . Stationary when selecting low 4x4. But sometimes you go into laah laah land when selecting and don't notice you are moving.
Do the manual transmissions have the same symptoms. Never had this happen in all the 4x4s I have driven.

Thanks for confirming what i thought all along. I only ever experienced that type of engagement if trying to select 4x4 low if not stationery.
Never had any problems with a constant 4x4. Obvious if you do it by the book the more spares they sell.
USE PARK TO ENGAGE LOW 4X4.

Check Auto cooler lines

Just finished a flush and filter change on my dmax auto box.. The cooler lines are in the way to get the sump off so I removed the first clamp to give more room. Not a good sight as it had warn through the plastic protector. Checked the second clamp and all ok. The design of the bracket appears to b...
