You can try to bleed the brake lines and check if the issue repeats.

Maybe, they have been provided the information. They are just feigning ignorance to actually clear existing stock .

The tailgate rattles on my Ertiga ZDi over broken roads. Is there any fix for it?

And when the car is fully loaded say 7-8 people, the right rear corner makes weird noises. What could be the issue and how to solve it?

First identify the cause for rattle.

Check for loose strut mountings holding the tailgate. Then check the Tailgate lock hook for alignment. If this is misaligned, there are chances that the tail door is not locking in correctly and metal-metal contact when moving on bad roads is creating the rattle. As a check, you can wrap the lock hook with few rounds of electrical insulation tape and then close the boot door and check for rattle.

Need to know more about the noise you are referring to. Since you mention this happens under full load, I don't suspect anything inside the car including the seat belts or seats themselves making this noise and it could be something else!

Thank you Parag. Will check on the tailgate.

Coming to the noise, it almost feels like the body is rubbing with tires or something. It also has a squeaking noise on bumps.

Please tell the service center person to just bleed the brake lines.

I often drive full load making use of all 3 rows and pass over some real huge speedbreakers during the journey. In fact, most of the full load drives (5+2) has always been on highways and that means my speeds were typically 90-110 kmph based on merit of roads.

My Ertiga might have passed many undulations, specially culverts and smaller bridges with this load often creating a bouncy effect but never had issues with such noises of tires rubbing even when my car's running on wider profile tires (205/60/15).

May be you should ask someone to drive while you are seated in the last row and identify the noise. It so happened in my case that I sat in the last row to identify the cause for a shrilling noise from the rear and eventually the culprit was the loose Jack. I ensure the jack was fitting tight by twisting it by one more turn and the noise had gone.

Sometimes, you may have to be the passenger to identify few noises .

This is my view being a passenger only! The jack was used once. Will check the jack. Thanks for the insight.

Hi Kisharchit,

The tail gate should not have any problems. Please check the Tool kit area and also the space behind the third row seats. There is a 'loose' pad that's placed behind the seats to cover the storage area. Even this creates rattling sound.

Also, I hear rattle noise from almost every corner of my Ertiga VXi when driven over Chennai Bypass road from Tambaram to Porur. Chennai BHP'ians would know the current road conditions.

I started to ignore the rear seat noise after frequent visits to MASS. But, post the 20K service, the MASS folks have aggravated the rattle noise

Now, I hear noise from the left front door, rear seats, rear A/C vent etc;

When I checked closely, I can see a gap between the rear A/C vents and fabric lining. Not sure if the A/C hasn't been fitted properly.

Maruti Suzuki Launches Ertiga Paseo Limited Edition

Quote:
The limited edition of the Ertiga is based on the VXi and VDi trim and is offered with more features.

The car will be made available only in two colours - the Superior White and the Silky Silver. With the added features the Ertiga Paseo becomes the most well equipped MPV in the segment.

Changed done on the exterior changes are few:

1) Side body decals,
2) Rear spoiler and
3) A blackened D-pillar.

But the major change is given in the inside via addition of many aftermarket accessories like :

1) New seat covers,
2) Steering wheel cover,
3) Bluetooth,
4) A cool/warm box,
5) Pillows,
6) Door sill guards,
7) Designer mats,
8) Reverse parking sensors,
9) High-speed multi-charger,
10) A storage box and
11) A digital tyre inflator.

Looks like an effort to clear inventories just before the facelift arrives.

Whatever be it, I like this limited edition variant that has some meaning to it of being a "Limited Edition" actually as compared to the ones launched which are mere stickering jobs. This one has some goodies in offer which will be useful to all.

Throughout the overall 600Km drive on that day, I got a FE of over 22 in the ZDi. Driving style is sedate or lazy-man driving, and I do not see any issue with the clutch also at present.

You are one of those unlucky fellas. Since your car is covered under extended Warranty, I would suggest you visit the ASC and report this issue ASAP and get it sorted (They would replace the part).
The machinery has been opened and inspected, pics have been sent off to the Maruti regional office guys. Attaching them in this post.
The brass coloured ring is to blame, that is the synchronizer. I have taken a new piece from their store and added a pic of the same as well.

Further, the clutch wear is uneven, and the hydraulic bearing is almost fully worn out as well probably because of the same. I am given to understand these issues are interlinked with the synchronizer ring issue.

Almost all the Special Edition from Maruti has been consistent in 2 aspects:
Sticker Jobs
Funny Names (can we forget Ertiga Feliz) !

Ertiga Paseo Limited Edition is better in aspect#1 with some useful equipment. Though most of us usually buy these accessories sooner or later on our own, still good to get them through company.
However, personally, I find "Paseo Explore" name again weird. I wonder what stops them choosing names like Special Edition 2015 or so - even VW Vento has seen so many special editions, but with decent names IMO.

2015 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga launch scheduled for 3rd week of October.

Quote:
2015 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga includes changes to the front bumper, grill along with silver inserts for fog lights, that are also new. Headlight and tail-lights remain the same. However, we can expect a lot of changes on the inside in terms of features. Start-stop button, Bluetooth, steering mounted control and much more.

And two more pictures to show the assembly and location of the culprit - Item # 29 it is!
