1) Check the engine and gear box mounts.
2) & 3) You will have to check the speedo console first for any lose contacts i guess.

Thanks Jaggu for the quick reply, but if it is the mounts then is the engine should vibrate though out the RPM range right? why specific to this range? and when I ask the MASS then should I say that check for the mount, will that be sufficient, and if I have to change the mount how much will it cost?

the 2 & 3 is not because of the battery right? I read that if the battery is in its last leg then these kind of issues are expected, hence asked,

Engine mount, not necessary that engine should vibrate through out, if its weak or if one is weak it might vibrate only at a particular frequency/rpm.

Reg dash light, since you mentioned RPM meter issue, its better to rule out the instrument console before moving to battery.

Default EGR Cleaning

Guys,
Did the EGR cleaning on my DZire VDi when the same went for 30K servicing on Saturday.
Following is the breakup of EGR Cleaning as exactly mentioned in my bill:

Turbo Charger Assy - 335
Other - Valve Mechanism - 650
Front wiper motor assy R&R - 425
COWL center garnish R&R - 350

The SA told me that these four items add up to EGR cleaning and we need to remove and fix all these. Do we need to remove the Front wiper motor assy and the COWL center garnish (Dont even know what this is) to clean the EGR Valve?

Pls advise.

Cheers
f1fan

Last 2 items looks like they have serviced your wiper system. And NO you dont need to remove wiper to repair EGR.

I thought so and hence asked the SA twice when I checked the bill. He told me that the Viper assembly needs to be removed to clean the EGR Valve. This is not done. I am shooting off a mail to Maruti about this.

EGR sits on the engine and only the battery and air filter assembly needs to be removed to access it.

They did disconnect the battery as the radio presets and the time has been reset. Apart from shooting a mail to Maruti, I would be talking to the senior folks at the MASS tomorrow about this.
Last but not the least, I hope that they have cleaned the EGR valve. Is there any way to check the same?

Nope apart from an inspection of the bolts for any marks or actual removal and inspection, i dont think there is a way to determine the job. But battery removal is a good sign, that is if the diesel filter was not replaced.

The picture of the EGR valve is seen here DM's Maruti Suzuki Swift Vdi: Problem with the EGR valve and only battery and air box has been removed.

However, kulvinder has indicated ecu and wiring harness removal http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...ml#post2070718

Even if I consider any of the two scenarios above, it doesn't warrant the removal of Wiper assembly

Talked to a senior person at the same MASS today ( apart from talking to the SA yesterday) and he too confirmed the same thing that apart from Battery and Air Filter, the Viper assembly and COWL needs to be removed for reaching out to the EGR valve.

I am now waiting for an update to my mail from Maruti folks on the same.

Sorry Jaggu for hijacking your thread.

Hi Jaggu,
I remember that you upgraded your lights to Philips of same wattage, which fits with same wattage and wiring. Can you please let me know(or PM) the price? I saw that the price for it is 1100 as opposed to 90/100 Philips rally lighting with ceramic holders, wiring etc for 1200.
I am confused if I need to change holders and wiring and go for 90/100 or stick to better lights on same assembly. How are your lights?
Do you see some difference on highways?

thanks.

Huge difference with these bulbs. Its very evident once you change, i paid 1200 since i was in a hurry and didn't want to hunt around. I didn't want to tinker with wiring or risk the reflector, hence went in for Philips extreme 55/60. Even if it lasts one year am AOK with it.

Hi Jaggu,

I was planning to fit the 90/100w Philips bulbs with a relay for my Swift. Would you suggest sticking to the 55/60w bulbs or upgrading them ?

Thanks,
Mikil
