You have not said whether it is a Cab Chassis / Space Cab or Dual Cab. I have had no issues with squeaking from the seats in my Space Cab however, whilst the noise appears to be coming from under the drivers seat, it may be something loose on the centre console (assuming of course you have bucket seats), from the rear passenger seat on the drivers side or even a door trim item where plastic is rubbing on plastic.

I had this problem when I first got mine (2011). It required me to put a couple of 10 cent piece sized washers between the front left securing bolt to the floor on the transmission side (next to the tunnel), and re-tighten it. It worked and have had no noise since. Regards, Drohy.

2014 Dmax without canopy. The seal has deteriorated around the rear high mount stop light (the one above the back window) and now let's in water. With the recent rains (March 2018), I have had to check for goldfish each morning lately. Any ideas where to buy a replacement seal besides the local dealership? Ajm

Can't comment personally about a van but inlaws have a one around that weight and only use around 13L/100 I think.

Fully loaded for work I'm at 2.7T and use 9.5/100 regularily. When I tow a trailer for work occasionally (800-1000kgs) goes up to around 12/100.

I have a 2017 SX dual cab and want to fit a bulbar. My question is has anyone fitted a bar without upgrading front springs/shocks and if so which bar? Does the OEM Isuzu bar require an upgrade?
Thanks

The genuine bar is alloy and pretty light but also not winch compatible and shouldn't require any suspension upgrade , if you are looking at a winch in the future look at the ARB Sahara bar , it's winch compatible and steel construction but might need a heavy spring upgrade .

Join the Isuzu Dmax/MU-X owners group on Facebook , I'm sure it's been covered before , could be as simple as a bad battery .

First step check the radio fuse as well.

But also, why did the other fuse blow???

Do yourself a favour and join the Isuzu Dmax,MU-X owners group Australia on Facebook and take advantage of the knowledge base , I hav'nt come across your problem , often one fuse covers many applications so check them all .
