  1. Noisy (something) sounds like either the serpentine belt or water pump?

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    They most likely are, but by very few. The forums aren't exactly a hive of activity. Most of the "regulars" who post are just that...the same few who post on most GV related topics. Personally, I can't help. I've owned a few Vitaras, ranging from a 3-door Vitara with a G16A, to an SQ625...
  2. new key programming

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Just to resuscitate this thread, I have purchased a new (2nd-hand Fob amd a new key (with transponder chip) for the GV, as it only came with the one fob and key. My concern is that if I put the car into what might be termed "Fob registration" mode, I will also "wipe" the transponder...
  3. Brief install thred - Factory parking sensors and aftermarket stereo.

    General Car Audio, Video and Electronics
    Bought a 3.2 V6 "Prestige" Grand Vitara late last year, with the idea being to do some travelling in it (starting mid-next month) and also for towing our 4.8M runabout. Seems odd that Suzuki would fit HID headlights and some other "nice" things to the vehicle, and then skimp on things such as...
  4. "Reverse trigger wire"

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Got it sorted. Turns out the feed wire from the camera (RCA plug), also "carries" a red wire next to it, which is "plumbed" into the reverse light down back of the car (To be clear, I had to trace the reverse light wire near the LHS tail light connector, and "plumb" or splice the wire in). The...
  5. Noisy (something) sounds like either the serpentine belt or water pump?

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    You "may" need to be a little more descriptive, in terms of your actual vehicle (engine etc.) AND a description of the knocking sound itself.
  6. "Reverse trigger wire"

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    I'm Installing a new stereo in a 2009 GV Prestige, which includes a few things the original one didn't. I've also installed a reverse camera, and run the feed cable from it, from rear to front. I've also run power to it at the rear, from the reverse camera wire, and earthed it at the rear as...
  7. Equivalent size wood drill bit to Suzuki's own Part Number (for parking sensors)

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    I've recently acquired a factory Suzuki factory rear parking sensor kit, which I intend to install along with a reverse camera. It calls for a particular drill bit, with Part number 990AA-54G00-P01. Helpfully, it isn't supplied with the kit. Even more helpfully, they don;t mention the size it...
  8. Transmission cooler - 3.2 V6 GV

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Thanks for that. Do you know what size/s the fitting are, as it the link doesn't mention it? Or, put another way, if I buy a generic cooler of one type or another, which size of hose do I need to specify, to connect it up to the GV (assuming the 3.2 and 2.4 models use the same fittings...?)
  9. Transmission cooler - 3.2 V6 GV

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    The Mrs and I plan to do a bit of travelling for ~ 3 months, beginning in April. By "a bit", I mean travelling through S.A, W.A, up to the N.T, and down to QLD (where we will be settling down in our house on the Coast). Distance will probably be somewhere between 10-15000 kms or so, and will...
  10. head light and Bonnet protectors, 2008 Grand Vitara

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    I'm all ears as to which dealer you bought it from...
  11. head light and Bonnet protectors, 2008 Grand Vitara

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Does anyone know where I can get hold of these - new or 2nd hand? In Australia, please. Can easily find gear for the latest ones. Nothing for the earlier stuff...even on Suzuki's own (extremely poor) web site. Is it just me, or is "stuff" for these things bloody hard to find/get hold of...
  12. Push on, or cut my losses!?

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Well that sucks. I wonder how the OP got on with this? We too are planning a lengthy trip (~3 months) in a GV...only the 3.2lt version. Hope we don't find a similar "laundry list" off issues prior to going...or worse, while we're "out there".
  13. Noisy (something) sounds like either the serpentine belt or water pump?

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    I have a bit of a weird issue. On our J24B-powered Grand Vitara, when it's started and run, occasionally there is a noise emanating from...I'm not exactly sure where. It's somewhere between a whirring noise, and the noise a slipping ancillary belt would make. I can then take it for a drive...
  14. One for the Australian GV owners

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    I'm looking to get a bull or nudge bar for our GV, prior to doing some travelling in a couple of months. The car is a 2008-built/September 2009-complied Grand Vitara "Prestige" with the N32A V6. Does anyone have one of these models with a bull or nudge bar? If so, can you give me an idea of...
  15. Couple of questions 2009 Grand Vitara w/ N32A engine

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Thanks for that. Very detailed. Only minor issues are that: 1) No table of contents, and 2) Very laborious to search. As an example, the early diagrams show what is clearly an outline of an H27A, and yet on further digging, I found references to the N32A, so clearly the "right" manual. No...
  16. Couple of questions 2009 Grand Vitara w/ N32A engine

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Hmmm...OK. I'll have a crack at that over the w/end.
  17. Couple of questions 2009 Grand Vitara w/ N32A engine

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Thanks for that. I think I, too, have a copy of the same manual. I have not been able to make it work properly - even resorting to trying to run it on a Virtual XP machine running IE6! I was hoping there might be a non browser-based one available (or even a hard copy). Perhaps not.
  18. Couple of questions 2009 Grand Vitara w/ N32A engine

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    1) Does anyone know where to download a Service manual for these vehicles? (Please: I'm not interested in an owners manual. I'm also not interested in anything earlier than 2008. They will all relate to the H27A powered vehicles...of little use to me). 2) I'm guessing that there is no factory...
  19. Exhaust options for 3.2 V6 GV

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Hmmm...clearly it's "all happening" in here. So no-one has attempted to - much actually installed - some kind of Cat back system on a 3.2 GV? Colour me surprised, as I'd have thought one of these would benefit quite a bit from freeing up of the exhaust...
  20. Exhaust options for 3.2 V6 GV

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Doesn't look - on a quick search - that this has been asked before, so thought I'd ask. We've recently bought one of the 3.2 V6 "Prestige" model GVs. I doubt that there's much in the way of headers for these out there. Unlike the H25A/H27A GVs of yesteryear, where there wasn't much for a...
