Thanks for posting the picture of your old clock spring. I saw clock spring replacement videos on YouTube. It's the mechanism that allows continued electrical connection to the steering wheel even when its turning. The faulty audio controls are a giveaway that my clock spring is faulty. Also, I won't be taking the risk to DIY this myself.

hey RocketRacoon - I suppose we can continue the i20 tyre discussion on the following thread:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...mission-2.html

That way you can get other bhpians opinions as well!

Mods -
Sorry for going ! Cannot PM RocketRacoon hence posting the new thread link here.

I got myself a new set of Michelin Energy XM2s' of stock size 185/65/14. Initial impressions are very positive. I took the decision to forgo my initial choice of going with Yokohama C drives and settled with Michelin instead after reading many posts which claimed the durability of Michelin tires. It was heavy on my pocket by INR4800 per tire including wheel balancing, alignment and nitrogen.

Hey guys! For the past few days my drivers side seat belt indicator doesn't turn off even after buckling the seat belt. As a result, the chime starts after 20kmph and keeps chiming for some duration, while the lights flashes continuously.

I think the belt buckle assembly may be at fault. I tried using contact cleaner inside the buckle and on both sides of the connectors below the seat. That didn't help!
FYI, there are no other system lights or any DTCs stored.

Now, here is what I want to know :

1) Does the i20 has pretentioner seatbelts which are connected to the SRS system or are they just the normal ones? I think the SRS ones have a gas canister that tightens the belt in case of an accident and hence need to be replaced at the ASC.

2) If the light stays on, does this disable the SRS system?

I would like to do a DIY as long as it doesn't interfere with safety in any way.

@Mods: Since the thread is about a DIY regarding the i20, I chose to post this here. If there is an appropriate thread regarding this issue please post it there.

Thanks!

Can I get any generic 12" wiper (say the Bosch Eco) and fix it as the rear wiper on the i20?

I believe the i20 (2008-2011) rear wiper blade is of 12'' size. The front ones are 22'' and 16''. So the answer to your question is yes - a 12'' wiper blade should fit your rear wiper. When you buy the wiper blade from the dealer you can double check too.

The seat belt chime sound means that either the seat belt is not 'clicking' in (locking mechanism fail) or the sensor that detects weight on the seat (if you tell a light weighing passenger to sit on the shotgun seat with his bum on the front portion of the seat the chime stops) and instructs that chime has gone kaput. There could be other reasons too like the seat belt wire getting cut by constant seat adjustment over the years. Look under the seat. There should be a box. Is any wire unplugged or loose ? I think a visit to the ASC would serve you better. FNGs can mess up electronics and certainly can't handle anything related to the SRS system. Oh and sorry for the late reply !

No worries! I sprayed a lot of contact cleaner inside the buckle and it seems to have sorted the issue for now!
It didn't work before but I emptied the whole can in there and it worked!

I will be doing a DIY oil change for my i20.

I am planning to purchase Shell/Mobil 1 fully synthetic 5W40 for the same. I wanted to use 5W30 as per the users manual but it's difficult to procure locally.

Any suggestions if I should go ahead with my choice and if not what alternative?

Thanks!
