Please ensure you remove the air map sensor connector before you remove the air filter cover, then re-fit it properly when you close the box, in between DONOT start or switch ON the ignition. This is to ensure that error codes are not thrown up into ECU.

guys, i have recently noticed that when the car is in 2nd gear and i brake, the rpm surges slightly and comes back. This is after the clutch pedal is pressed. Can anyone help me out as to reason behind this behaviour? Is this normal

Yes, it is perfectly normal. Even I was surprised at this behaviour, but it turns out that the ecu tries to stop the car from stalling by trying to increase the rpm a little.
So if you use too high a gear(and consequently too low rpm), the car will accelerate a little on it's own.

Cheers.

thanks d3mon. I think one bhpian had changed the centre console color to silver. Can anybody tell me how to get that changed? The same shade of silver that is present on the gear knob

Should the disconnection of the sensor map be done for all cars, prior to opening the air filter? I never did it for my zen. My vista is too new hence havent got a chance to open the air filter

You dont have to disconnect it before removing the air filter, it is just a precaution to ensure that the wires are not ripped out when the air filter is removed.

The check engine light will come on if the engine is started while the sensor is disconnected.

Please note, most cases the sensor will need disconnecting as the wires are not long enough to permit free movement while the filter is being removed

Not only that, the sensor may not read correctly if it is wiggled around in the process of removing air fitler, leading to the engine check light to come on later. In this case, disconnect and reconnect helps.

Yup hence dont start and remove clip so that you dont land up breaking the leads.

The wire is short and if your want to remove the cover the easy way without acrobatics then remove the harness.

Yes. Please see my this post
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ml#post1112964 (Swift Airconditioning performance)

They had kept the photos of my filters, it was full of dust and mud. I don't know from where all those came. Now after the service the A/C is back to excellent stage. I not even remember my A/C being this powerful.
