Default Sur 'mounting' Issues - Safari Engine Mount Replacement

It seems the enginomountavirus affected my Safari as well.

A couple of days back the packing between the exhaust manifold & the
silencer pipe went bust, resulting in a funny roar from the engine bay
and loss of power while driving. Today it was taken to the garage for
the needful.

While doing this job it was discovered that the engine mounts and the
gearbox mounts were showing wear & tear and needed replacement. What I
forgot while buying the mounts was that my truck was a 4 x 4 and I
simple asked for engine and gearbox mounts. While the engine mounts were
ok, I was handed over the gearbox mount for a 4 x 2. So, that work
remains and I hope to get it done this week.

Front Engine mounts - 1 pair - Rs. 300/-
Labour - Rs. 200/-

Total - Rs. 500/-

Time taken - approx. 2.5 hrs.

He has both ; in his heart of hearts, he is a Safari die-hard but since he's in that "wicked" age bracket, he drives the Scorpio (more in line with the "gangsta" image)


GD, looks like its "mounts" changing season buddy?

As is Rs.140 for CatCon removal, clean-up and refit.

But maintenance costs are still supposed to be 'above average'.

I am sure that was not done in a TATA garage. Any authorised service station would have charged at least 500 bucks for the replacement job.

OT:
^^ John, Im a DIY guy who doesn't want to get his hands dirty. Unless any of my cars are under warranty, I get them fixed by certified (by me) professionals .
To me, every A.S.S is just filled with the average ITI/diploma holder mech who do the job to make two ends meet.
You might laugh this off. But, My guys are those who chose their profession out of passion and interest. I KID U NOT!

I don't go to TASC or M&MASC as rule because it is my vehicle and I should know and see what goes inside or outside of it. If at a place where I am not allowed to monitor, then that place is taboo for me.

Secondly, though I don't claim to be an automobile expert at par with others here, but I do know the basics that have prevented me in abandoning a broken down vehicle somewhere strange and return. I've managed to hobble back home or to the nearest known place always.

Ceratainly these kind of rates are dream come true at an ASC. And of I recall correctly, in none of my posts did I mention that this was done at an ASC.

Ah, the vaccine for this called Replacin, that when used removes the virus completely and installs a new virus free unit..

Hi all,

I think my Telcoline has the same virus, not affecting 100% yet but I can see rubber with a lot of little crack.
They are 10 years old!
I wonder if any of you can have an enquiry at a courier and/or post office to calculate how much will be to have those mounting shipped to Italy. It may be that is cheaper than going to Tata dealer here.
I have no rush...

Ciao

Ignazio
