Secondly, some sort of protection may help. May be 2-3 layers of metal wire mesh wound around the bellow ?

Well as per the mechanic it cannot be by-passed and the inlet and outlet from this bellow is moulded and airtight.
The issue now is that the bellow available in open market has in/outlet pipes not of same length as original unit and i think some mods have to be done by mechanic...
never realized that this can cause so much headache.:
cheers

Another option is to scout around the scrap market and find the exact piece. You can take measurements with you and then look for it. I m sure you will find it in Chennai.

I hate headaches and would try to avoid doing things that causes headaches. I would have paid Concorde if I was in your place. All manufacturers have overpriced spares and that's how they make money.

Thanks for the suggestion, it really worked. I went to the car market @ sector 16, noida and met a person who said he can change the touch screen panel for INR 2000. Took the decision to go ahead and voila! the system is back to working normally.

Let's see how long it lasts? Anyways, thanks a bunch for the suggestion on this. This certainly saved me some bucks that I would otherwise had put on a new HU.

Cheers!

Please share pics ! What was the jugaad that he did ?

Also pls keep checking it for any leaks, since this is path that fuel flows from tank to pump / engine.

The usual suspects are either same or less than the Dicor. So, you will be just fine if you know the issues to check in a Dicor.

Looks like The Storme is the only Safari available now, Dicor is removed very recently from site : http://safari.tatamotors.com/

Current:

Recently archived version from Internet Archive,

Request to Mods: Not able to find any generic Dicor related thread, kindly move the post to other thread if required.

~2000 in very smooth drives - 2200 in slightly uneven ones where you have to keep a heavy foot on the throttle

How is that ? 100 kmph is 100 kmph. Why do you need to have a heavy foot on the throttle on slightly uneven roads ?

Any one else seeing / experiencing this ?

I agree. Every engine rpm at a gear should correspond to a particular speed on the road irrespective of the type of road.

I don't think it is possible that engine rpm for a particular speed can vary depending on road conditions unless something in the transmission is slipping (likely case - the Clutch).

A practical observation. I think it can vary. You won't be able to get it to 5 or 10 kmph on a 40% incline at 4000+ m ASL at the same RPM as you would on 0 m ASL. The thin air sucks quite a bit of power out of the engine and to get the same type of response, a higher RPM is needed.
