@Somu, waiting for the lever to be delivered to the local T.A.S.S. A friend is also trying for it elsewhere.

Will update you all as soon as I get one.

Default @Condor

you can also fit any Maruti Boot/fuel lid release lever if you are unable to source it quickly from TASS. Although the lock end is different in Maruti cable but the Lever end is the same, i guess its more of a universal lever end common to all such cables. have a look at this thread for more clarification (if not read already)

@Nishant, the M.A.S.S guys here aren't so liberal with giving spares OTC. Also, T.A.S.S is easy for me - call & order a part, can also pick it up during services etc.

Looking at the lever in the pic mentioned in your post, the lever end looks different. Atleast I am not able to make out for sure that that lever will work.

This is just awesome !! Good step by step info with pics. Thanks a million.

I did try at the local car shops but they ain't got any. Can you check with Prerna, if they can help locate a dealer in Delhi/NCR?

Planning to get this kit imported, link below. Would this kit do the job?

Check with ANY T.A.S.S. They will have it. It's a standard Indigo Boot release cable costing 152/- here. Should be a little less there.Why would you want to get that Falcon thingy when you can do it at 10% of the cost ? I am not able to see the pics on that page there. So wont know if it can be hooked up to the Ikon we have (esp in a situation where even the Maruti's cable cant be used).

the cable is so long that it reached till below the steering column.

guys if you know the last generation of kinetic honda came with a manual choke. jus trying to source one and check if it can be used for the release lever. just that the cable head might be a little big for the lever slot.

Benbsb29, I don't know about the significance of this thread, and have not gone through it, but am merely a messenger. Two viewers in the past week have viewed your thread and expressed their thanks through the "contact us" form. One specifically mentioned that he'd like to see you thanked on this thread itself. So here goes : Thanks from Vijay Parthe and Shabbir Khan.
