samyboy - Could you please start a thread of your 4X2 110PS Yeti? I don't think one exists @ Team BHP. It shall be of immense help to those who are eying these cross over clan & don't want to spend big on it.

Thanks

Sheel, I am afraid I will fall short of the high standards this forum demonstrates for an independent thread. Neither my knowledge is as deep as many terrific Yeti owners nor am I a good wordsmith. I try my level best to bring 4x2 perspective where I can on this thread. My thought process in going with 4x2 was to strike a balance between vehicle of this form factor and money I have to shell out from my pocket. I will be more than happy to answer any questions anybody has on 4x2 as I am in 7th month of my 4x2 ownership and just today we both cross the 5K mark.

Nothing like that. You don't have to take pics from any angle & don't really have to depict how the bonnet opener works.

A short, crisp one will do good. take your time, there is no hurry & make use of Assembly Line. (The "Assembly Line" Forum section) It is a great feature & shall help you

Write whatever thought comes to you, randomly.

Like you Sunil, doing it myself is totally totally out of question.
You can Butter the Folks at Autobahn and make them do the fitment. A Service Advisor / Electrician / Accessory Guy at Autobahn should be able to help out. you can tell them that you purchased it from a friend who was changing the HU on his Yeti. Fitment is very simple and just plug and play.

+1 to This request. There is a dire need of a 4X2 Review on T-Bhp

You dont need to be a wordsmith. All you gottu do is take a Brochure of the Yeti 4X2 and explain the features in your own Style.

I do have the bolero. However, you need to solder out the pre-outs! Further, you touch it, warranty is void! Furthermore, Skoda dealers would only install/support any installs from Skoda India or purchased through them. Everything else voids warranty, even if you buy directly from Skoda Czech!

well the A.S.S. here installed a Skoda Blues Music System from a Fabia Elegance into another Skoda Fabia. The Seller sold the HU for 5K and Installed a Pioneer

Not very sure if the pre-outs have to be soldered out, since am told by ETKA/ELSA that Radio Bolero is a direct replacement for Radio Swing in a Yeti.
In The Fabia / Laura as one of These Parts can be used to retrofit a Skoda Radio:
1. AZO60002- Kit for additional fitting of non-additional radio /
2. AZA700001A - Wiring for Non Genuine Radio Preparation
3. AZO700001 - Retrofit Kit for Non Genuine Raido preparation

Not so sure about that. I was told by the dealer that any genuine accessories / fitments sourced outside, but installed by the ASC will not void warranty. But he did mention that if the change involves wire-cutting and so on, they don’t recommend or take-up such work.

Yes, thats is right. This is conveyed even by The Team at Shendra. I have posted the relevant part of that mail about Genuine Accessories fitment somewhere in my earlier posts

This was communicated to me by Tafe Access, Mr Naveen, when I asked him if we source Genuine parts from outside! This even included Caska HUs which their sales team were positioning me!

Tafe-Access is a bit conservative in their approach as regards fitments of Accessories, even with those accessories which are in the Skoda India Basket / Brochires and can be ordered through them. but from what i have heard about Naveen, He is willing to take risks, as long as he is convinced.

No wonder, when the time comes up to beat the delhi's traffic and congestion, I prefer the Yeti over the Civic because it is so easy and very comfortable to drive, park, corner and navigate the traffic madness. Plus, it gives me phenomenal mileage (~16-18 kmpl) in city driving condition. So it does not burn my pocket and yet very fun too. This is why the Yeti is my Monday to Saturday companion, and the Civic is only let loose on Sunday

I just heard something about the Alto which I thought I would just mention here even though its a Yeti thread.

A friend has an Alto whose battery died with three months to go to complete two years. I told him the warranty should be for two years . The dealer said one year. So he called up Maruti Gurgaon. They told him Maruti does not have anything to do with the batteries as they are fitted by the dealer and thus they would have no idea about the warranty period.

Both of us are absolutely stunned by this. Imagine Skoda saying something like this. We would all go ballistic!

How can the manufacturer say they do not know something about the cars they sell? Is this normal in the car industry? Which other parts should one enquire about?

Well, Those Pretty Much are the same warranty terms of all Manufacturers

Skoda India says this

"Few components originally equipped on SKODA vehicles like Tyres , Batteries etc. are not manufactured by us but supplied by other vendors.

SKODA warranty shall not apply for such parts & purchaser of the car shall entitle as per the warranty provided by the respective manufacturer / vendor.

Should you experience difficulty in obtaining warranty service from these manufacturers , your authorized SKODA dealer will assist you in resolving the concerns "

This is on Page 1 of your Warranty Booklet

Yes nobody can manufacture everything but surely quality control would require certain minimum guidelines to be adhered to? Surely a purchaser say in Kerala and one in Delhi would expect to be sold the same thing?
