    A bit of clunking from the suspension so I ordered all 6 balljoints and got going tonight.

    Front four done. Tomorrow the rear two.

    Lucky I buy a lot from my local midas and get decent discounts. All 6 for just over R1k

    Agents want over R3k for one.

    Front lowers are a PITA to remove. Hub nut needs to be undine to move the hub far enough outward to get the balljoint out without damaging the abs ring.

    I damaged the one bleed nipple on the caliper though, so need to get that replaced.

    Marius I also just started noticing some clunking from the front, can even replicate the sound by pushing the top of the tire.

    Any chance you’ve got the midas part numbers?

    You don't always need a pajero. But when you do, you are glad you own one.

    I shudder when I think of the price.
    My 2003 model required a replacement when (luckily) still under warranty. I think it was close to R10k even back then.
    Did you order an original via Mitsubishi dealership, or are you importing a generic that you sourced on the internet?
    Did you and dad try to MacGyver the busted one?

    Im not messing around with something that is effectively a bomb and critical to brake performance.

    I will cut the old one open though out of curiosity (after I have made it safe as per the workshop manual)

    Just got more expensive. Import taxes are just over R1000. And the seller under declared the value. Guess who must pay the penalty?

    I could have had the item from the agents for cheaper and quicker than what this is costing me.

    Sorry to hear, but interesting.
    When I was hunting for a tranny filter for my Chevy, I could get one from Spain (AC DELCO brand) for 1/3 of the dealer price. I was (still am) unsure of hidden costs, and I was not 100% convinced I had the correct part. Seems my hidden cost fear was justified.

    Clunks are gone. Hard to say which ones are guilty as I changed all at once.

    Just to update

    Brake accumulator in.

    While I waited I did the unnecessary complication (that's what happens when you google too much) of taking the abs module out and stripping the electric motor. Still looked new after 327'000km.

    Bled the brakes (rears you need the engine idling) and abs module (by being colin McRae on the dirt road)

    All good so far after about 200kms.

    If you are in the same position, just get the unit from the agents (mitsu or toyota) and call it a day.

    It was some downtime, but less than one monthly payment for a new pajero.

    Can you not bleed the ABS module via OBDII port and running various activation cycles? Most cars I have worked on you bled the ABS unit via diagnostic tool?

    I have the full diagnostic but runs only from XP. Via a virtual machine in my WIN10 laptop. Its temperamental.

    Easier for me with 4km gravel driveway to just be a hooligan.
