Default re: Cheaper options: Spare parts for the Baleno sedan

Could anyone recommend a good and reliable FNG in Mumbai (I stay in Powai). I have a Baleno, and niggles have started cropping up, and it is that point where MASS is getting way too expensive.

I'd like to keep this car for a couple more years , so would like to find someone good and reliable.

Not sure if it is Rane, but Dalvi auto parts Store Mulund does sell Lower Arms for Baleno at 1500 a pair.

Hope this helps

The CEL has been on for quite some time now on my Baleno due to the O2 sensor going kaput. Checked with Susee Spares (MGP stockists) and was told that Baleno came with 2 types of O2 sensors - one costing Rs2360 (not in stock, can get in 1 week) and the other costing Rs6700 (in stock). Are the 2 types of sensors MGP vs SGP ?

Anyway going through the following posts in this thread, I see that the Alto's O2 sensor is a good replacement for the Baleno. Planning to do the same.

Any Indian aftermarkets for the Baleno headlight assembly guys? I remember asking the same question here some time ago.

Mine have gotten very dull and milky (I think more after a repaint guy "polished" them to remove the glaze/yellowing when doing my front bumper).

Please refer to this post. The aftermarket lower arms arent worth the risk.

As mentioned in this thread, I had asked my mechanic to source the Alto's O2 sensor. But when I went to get it fitted today, found that it is not the correct replacement for the Baleno due to difference in wiring - the Alto sensor has a single wire, while the Baleno's has a 4-wire connection. Wonder how Surprise & Buffetfan were able to get the Alto's sensor fitted on their Balenos ?

Could this difference in wiring explain why there exists 2 types of O2 sensors for the Baleno as mentioned to me by the spares shop below ?

Yes, the 94 HP cars (Euro II) were single wire sensors, later models had the heated sensors.

Finally my mechanic was able to source a 4-wire O2 sensor (Alto's I guess, and probably shared by other Suzuki cars too) - got it fitted today and the CEL is finally gone. Cost Rs2700 including fitting. Replacing the O2 sensor is not really a big deal & can be a simple DIY. Just that unscrewing the old sensor is cumbersome, given the lack of space to manoeuvre the spanner.

Does anyone have any info about changing the speedo lights in the Baleno? One of them went kaput in mine. Is it DIY-able? Any idea where I can get the item online?

Hi guys, Can anyone point me to MGP or after market wiper blades in Mumbai, for the Baleno Vxi? I've been looking for a set and am not able to source the same. I could also look at seconds if anybody is interested in removing them..

Are you referring to the blades or complete arm? Replacement blades are easy to source, I got mine replaced from Bosch a month back.
