Default Mahindra Scorpio Shock Absorbers

Has anybody used Shock Absorbers developed by ARC for the Scorpio. Any feedback?

Don’t recall any BHPian using one (documented AFAIK). Can you provide more information on the same?

Hi Suresh, hearing from you after a long time.

I guess you are referring to this product? Didn't know they had shocks. The youtube video link in that page is not working.

Its sad to see the clutch slave cylinder continuing the fail even in the latest gen Scorpio that too as early as 30k kms. This definitely is of concern for people who travel late in the night with family.

Most of my friends vehicle bought between 2009-11 have a failed CSC

Mine failed when i was traveling to Goa . I had almost reached North Goa when the clutch failed .Car has to be towed from North Goa to South Goa ( Towing the Scorpio is not a easy job and it costs lot of money ). I had driven almost 65K Kms on my vehicle . Many vehicles had failed CSC with 15-20K on the odo.

Hope the new gen scorpio launched in Dec 2017 has resolved this issue once for all

Can anyone help out with bulb wattage and rating [H4 or anything else] for the Scorpio's fog-lamps? I don't seem to find it in the manual.

But it doesn't specify if it is an H4 or H7, any detail on that?

Nope, sorry. I can check the hard copy of my owner's manual after going home, but doubt if it would be of any use as my vehicle is a 2010 make. So the ratings might be different.

Cheers,
Vikram

AFAIK, the front fog lamp in the current generation Scorpio uses a 35W H16 bulb.

^Thanks, but need concrete information as I would be ordering �� bulbs for this as well as license plate LED’s.

Right now, getting my S10 4WD’s 60K service and am trying to go through manual and see if I spot them.

Are you getting HIDs or LEDs for the fog lamps, sir?
Also, the license plate uses W5W/T10 spec bulbs that Osram & Philips have on offer.

LED’s. A friend and a BHPian has fitted in his XUV and am pretty impressed.

You can either go for Philips or Osram depending on which brand you prefer.
Distinguished - BHPian Sankar Sir has installed them on his Innova Crystas fog lamps as well & the results are great.
Also, please PM me some pictures of the XUV with the LEDs if possible, as Im looking forward to installing the same on mine as well.

I'm acquiring a used 2015 S10 with a bit less than 41k on the clock from VJ Cars (Used car dealer - VJ Cars, Chennai) who I already got my Fiesta from.

While it is the newer variety of Scorpio there's still some amount of body roll.

Yes yes I know, high center of gravity people mover and I'm a newbie to this class of vehicles, plus spoiled by my Fiesta's stable ride at speed and crisp response to lane changes, and I do need a vehicle for family trips.

Now the question is - and I've searched this mega thread as well as this other even larger thread (Mahindra Scorpio : Issues & Solutions) to the best of my ability + some other threads but it seems better to ask it :

What works best to dampen out the body roll?

1. 3rd party shocks from ARC?
2. Rogerab coil spring dampers?
3. A tyre upsize?
3a. What is the recommended pressure for the 205/65R17 Bridgestone Dueler H/Ts it is shod with?

The suspension bushes etc are just fine, this is an almost new car and has been meticulously maintained, the engine purrs like a kitten, almost.

All that said and done, the only thing I think I'd upgrade is the horn, which is kind of anaemic (get a Bosch Symphony or similar). The lights are decent with a good throw + the high seating position helps, the touchscreen HU and sound system are quite adequate for now. Oh yes, and remove the small bullbars that have been fitted.

Congratulations on your new vehicle! The simplest way to make a Scorpio less bouncy or prone to body roll is to load it with weight - either people or a sack filled with sand at the back. A full Scorpio is smoother to drive than one with only 1 or 2 people in it

I wouldn't recommend a tyre upsize - keep it stock.

Tyre pressure chart given below (from https://www.withyouhamesha.com/owner...O-mHawk.html):

Mahindra Scorpio : Official Review-scorpio.jpg

For highway runs, you can keep it at 33 psi in all 4 tyres.

Wish you a million miles of safe & happy driving.

Cheers,
Vikram
