Unhappy Toolkit for WagonR lost!

I have lost the toolkit of my WR. Do not ask me how and when as i have know clue!
Everything from jack to spanner is gone. On enquiring with different MASS some say they don't stock it and some quote exhorbitent prices (Rs350 to Rs 700 !)

Any place in NCR where i can get this? Will approaching MGA help?

Its better to buy an MGA one (quality wise). And do keep it safely under the front seat or in the spare tyre well.

The toolkit only consists of a Jack, Wheel spanner, reflector strip.

You should be able to get them at any decent auto spare parts shop.
Not auto accessory but auto spares.

Kashmere Gate is the place, however you might not be getting whole package. You'll be needing to collect tools by your own like Jack, Spanner etc. You might also get all the stuffs at a single shop as well, if lucky

DCEite,

A MGA toolkit is very basic, especially so for the MPFi models. All you have is a wheel spanner, jack handle and a screwdriver with two heads. This does not suffice for DIY freaks like myself

Since you have lost this kit, why not buy yourself a good aftermarket one which is a more comprehensive in terms of the tools? I'm sure you can but a stand alone wheel spanner for the car and build the other tools around that.

Just my two cents

Cheers,
gpa

Well a basic toolkit needed for tyre change will suffice. Don't want to be stranded on the road in middle of nowhere in case of a tyre puncture.
Is it available readily at dealership MGAs or do they have to be ordered?

Lost the tool kit of my Esteem long ago. Couple months ago, I realised that its not the way to go... in case of puncture and all. So went to my MASS store and they gave me one immediately. I remember them telling me that the tool kit is the same across most (if not all) the Maruti models. Cant remember exactly, but cost was something like Rs. 250/-

Do you get the jack,its handle, wheel spanner and screw driver for 250?
better to buy the cross type as its hold on to the nut prevents slipping when used by the general public than the small angle one which comes as standard.

I recently gave servicing of my car to Whitefield, Bimal in Bangalore. After 1 week I inspected my car's boot and saw wheel spanner is missing. I went to Bimal again and told Service Advisor my wheel spanner is missing after I gave for servicing to you.

I clearly told him I will give negative feedback about you in feedback form. He immediately went inside and brought one wheel spanner for my car. Otherwise he was denying.

I cant imagine how you lose/misplace an entire jack!

And worse, not do something about it. The same thing happened to a friend's wagon R too. ( he didnt lose the jack tho)
