Picked up the wife's SH from the crash repair shop. As reported earlier I hit a kangaroo, actually no, the kangaroo hit me!!
New front guard and headlight and the car is looking almost new again!

You can pull fuse on ABS.
Crossing the Simpson, west to east, some years ago a 6 cylinder Outback had problems going up Big Red because of the ABS. Pulling the fuse allowed it to sail up easily.
Today swapped front tyres with the 2 spares to even out wear and started the monumental clean out. Something not done for at least 12 months I reckon.
Plenty more to do......

Did it have VDC? You need to turn off the traction control to put the VDC into offroad mode.

Better than pulling the fuse is to put an illuminated dash mounted switch in line, so you can turn it off/on easily & the light reminds you its disabled

Is yours manual or auto?

Havachat, great to hear your Foz is back

Hi NL,
It is an MY03 manual.
I use 6 tyres so rotate them reasonably often, about every 5000 kms. Plenty of tyre changing practice........
Re ABS/VDC, no idea as it was in about 2004 and not my car. Just remember the driver pulled the ABS, well think it was ABS, fuse.
I know in my MY03 the ABS light came on when the bouncing started when climbing the dune via a very rutted track. Went off when we stopped on top for the obligatory photo.

Now you can put road tyres on one set and off road on the other !
