This is a good idea. I have never got around to doing it on my Gypsy and even now I have water coming in to the footwell area when it rains heavily.

I have 90/100 bulbs on my Gypsy as well but the are wired via a relay. No probs to the reflectors.

Default Coolant tank leak?

While the car is getting the steering done, I noticed engine coolant drops on the floor, and some of it spilled in the engine bay.
I notice that there is only one tube that runs from the top of the radiator to the coolant plastic tank - I had thought there would be two, one running back to the radiator?
The underneath of the coolant tank was wet with coolant when I ran my hand below it. The tube running into the tank seems to have a good joint, and the coolant tank cap seems tight enough. With some coolant smears on it. I can always go back to Maruti once the car is back in my hands, but does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? I can't imagine that the plastic coolant tank could have sprung a leak.
