    Default I had to fix the Jeep!!

    I wanted to take a few friends to De Wildt. I asked my husband and he said we could use the Jeep as we were 5 people....the Jimny was too small

    We arrived at DeWildt and then I was unable to engage low range. The short lever just slided forward and backwards.

    This was a dissappointment as we then had to drive the 4x2 route!

    My husband is in the DRC and he would not have the time to work on the Jeep before our Whoopa GTG trip. So with the help of the gardener I removed the steel plates underneath the car to see if I could see anything wrong. There was a piepie that came off a plastic ring thingie. They just clip together. I think it came off due to vibration...

    so now I know that you have no fun if the piepie comes out of the ringie thing.

    I am just happy that I could find the fault and fix it

    So us women are not as useless as you men think we are!

    Ek is trots op jou "Super" Colleen, hoop John weet wat jou labour rates is om die ronde dingetjie oor die piepietjie dingetjie te sit, nevermind die staal onderklere uittrek....

    I have to agree, there is always fun in the Jimny, and you dont have to involve the gardener at all!!

    I see a problem here. This jeep was fixed WITHOUT using any money....if this trend continue, how are we going to syphon money into the "mods" account?
