  • NT Jacks Beware

    Just used my jack for the first time, while it worked ok during the changing of the flat, it was when I wanted to lower the jack, it would not lower any further then the last section with tyre in the air. I had to raise the jack high enough to get a brick under the tyre then lower the jack, which still stuck in the same position and remove it from under the Pajero then drive off the brick. So guys/girls please check your jacks as they seem be on the cheap side.
    I will be returning the jack to my dealer to see if I can get another under warranty.

    The Quality of Pajero Jacks supplied by MM are Rubbish compared with LC and Patrols.

      I bought one from Supercheap because I didn't trust what condition my factory one was in (purchased it 2nd hand and it was an ex rental). Best 60 bucks spent for piece of mind I reckon.

        I bought one of those Alloy Floor Jacks as it Can get under the lower control arms and I don't have to get under the car either. A Lot Safer.

          Dont know about the Patrol jacks, but the ones supplied with a 200 series are absolute rubbish. I was doing a 3 day 4WD course and part of it was to demostrate changing a tyre. With the cruiser on level ground we jacked the front using the jacking point shown in the owners manual and the wheel didnt even come off the ground with the jack at full extension. Useless.

          MM arent the only ones to supply a crap jack.

            Yep jacks need to be checked carefully before use. Had to dig a hole to change the tyre on the Hilux the other day because it didn't go high enough. I usually have a block of wood in the back but not that day...

              Jack was replaced under warranty no problem from Mandurah Mitsubishi WA? Did a few ups and downs and seems ok.

                Sounds like you got air into the jack. Happened to me when i unscrewed the release valve too far. Tip the jack upside down, completely unscrew the release valve and apply pressure to the base of the jack (now facing skywards) with your foot until completely depressed and screw the release valve back in. Worked for me.

                Or get the dealer to replace it, that works too i suppose

                  The jack in my Patrol was really good for a wind up jack, did it with ease and went plenty high enough. Will have to check out my standard MM one now.
