Just bought 1998 jimny in exellent condition with 120k, has had log book service. I have done an oil change , but after 1000klm a knock has developed which appears to be around the harmonic balancer at idle. I have removed both drive belts & the noise is worse. I am new to this forum. Has anyone had the same problem or got any ideas????

Hi, not that I have solve my own jimny knocking noise, but may I ask if the knocking noise appears when the car moves or not?

In my case, the knocking noise appears in front left and right wheels when bounces up and down, trying to level or settle balance at each other.

Let me know if we are experiencing the same thing or not.

we're on a different problem. I solved mine by replacing idler gear, keyway & bolt. Appears last workshop has loosened idler bolt when not necessary. Only the 6mm bolts have to be removed to take out the bottom pulley when changing the timing belt. This flogged the gear & bolt so at idle the knocking noise appeared.
