Mine is a 2WD. Are you telling me that there is no torsion bar in 2WD?

Also I am still not convinced that this is truely required. I will go to the workshop tomorrow and ask the folks to show me the problems before they start on the job for sure.

2WD Scorpio has coil springs in front and no Torsion bar. I suspect the either mean, 1) Stabilizer bar link bushes if it is the front suspension or 2) Panhard rod link bush for rear suspension.

I think you are right.

May be they have the same bushes that they use for both the types and have the same name/part number. But I want to be sure that these are dead/worn out. Do you know of a way to test them other then visible inspection?

I changed by stabilizer bar bushes. I used to here a low thud, thud noise when I went over rough roads. Find an uneven/rough stretch of road, roll down the windows, turn off the AC and see if you can hear a repetitive thud, thud noise from the suspension.

That's right, and 4x4addict has already explained it. Front & rear link bar/rod bushes do wear out with use, but usually not before 30-40k km (unless you are running offroad frequently).

Visual inspection is the best way. Rear link bushes wear out faster than front stabiliser bar bushes. Car feels as if it is wallowing more over undulations on a good road. Thud-thud only audible once the wear is severe. Costs about Rs.800-1000 to change the full set at each end (parts + labour).

Finally yesterday, my Scorpio went thru a major work.

4 x 2 bush changed for rear suspension setup
2 x 2 ball joint changed for front suspension setup
2 cross changed

I did check the parts before they were replaced. I also checked that the factory fitted cross never had a grease nipple but the replaced ones now have them.

Total cost 8355 all inclusive out of which labour is almost 3000.

Work was done in VVC and I am very satisfied by the attention to detail. Also service manager informed that they have ordered a hydraulic press machine which will help them to change bushes faster without sending them outside. This will save a lot of time and cost for all the customers.

Off the topic, How is the service of VVC motors? I'd like to know the feedback. My Scorpio has been serviced by AML Motors all the time. While they are good, they neglect the smaller things all the time almost always needing a second visit to get these fixed. They also have too many vechicles to service and so I think the focus shifted to quantity than quality. VVC has been calling regularly to get my scorp serviced by them. Since you mentioned you got the work done there, I'd like to know your opinion before trying them. Thankyou.

I am very happy with VVC and stopped going to AML almost a year back.

Service of VVC is awesome. I bought my vehicle from Automotive but right from the second service onwards i am sending my vehicle to VVC service station adjacent to N- convention centre near Hi-tech flyover. They have a very good system of being in touch with customers. They arrange free pick up and return of the vehicle. Due to lack of time, i always opt for their free pick up and drop back facility.

Few months back, i had a long scratch on my rear bumper and i called them for touch -up. The Body shop S.A. was very helpful. He sent their driver to pick up the vehicle and did a good touch-up FOC and dropped back the vehicle to my office.

I personally feel VVC's service is much better than Automotive. IMHO, perhaps Automotive is overloaded and they are not in a postion to give full attention to the customers.

Thankyou both for the feedback. My last service experience at AML is next to pathetic and after spending around 20k bill, I didn't feel any kind of difference in the car after the service. Next service will be at VVC.

OT, but Just wanted to convey - Yesterday, 24/02/2012- there was thick smoke coming out from the engine compartment of a Scorpio, probably 3-4 years back Model.

Later by-standers opened the bonnect with crow bars forcebly. And there was huge fire in the Engine. I'd urgent work, so couldn't check, what happened. If any other members have seen this, they can update. This happened on Vyalikaval Main Road, near Police Station, BANGALORE.

Exclamation Mahindra Scorpio : Hazard light problem

Hello all,

My friend (who is not a member but regularly follows this forum) has a problem with his Scorpio. I am posting queries on his behalf. Any help would be appreciated.

------------------------------------------------------------------
My Scorpio-VLX hazard lamps (side indicator blinkers) seem to have some problems off late. It started last week that while driving if there was a jerk (pot-hole or speed breaker) then these blinkers will blink a couple of times and then go silent. Now within a week it has become lot more sensitive, and these blinkers pretty much keep blinking all the time. I can not stop this blinking using hazard lamp switch. Also I have seen that my carís anti-theft siren went off a couple of times during last week. There was no impact on the car, it just went off on its own. Donít know if these two things are related. If anybody can suggest anything that I should try it would be of great help.

Thanks a lot.
------------------------------------------------------------------

Regards.

This could be due to the loose wiring or the one of the wires touching the body. Get the wiring setup checked before its too serious.

Cheers,
Rajesh
