Thats the Slave cylinder and if the seal inside the slave cylinder goes bad, you have no choice but replace it. Now coming to warranty part, write to M&M customer care and see what they have to say. Usually I dont think they replace these parts under extended warranty, I could be wrong too. No harm in calling the helpline or writing to their customer care about your concern.

@pnredkar: The louder your friend makes a noise and the more emails he writes to M&M, the higher the chances of the clutch slave cylinder (not the "sleeve cylinder" as you mention) being covered under warranty.

Malfunctioning Slave cylender is a generic issue with Scorpios, I have also faced the same, write to customer care & if required to the management also, this would be replaced free of cost (do not even pay for the labour)

Default Re: Mahindra Scorpio : Issues & Solutions

Last evening while driving into town for dinner, my scorpio's power steering suddenly went hard. it was like steering a truck! I had to pick up my wife from her workplace and luckily this happened just outside her office, so parked it there and got back.

I need to call the service station guys today and figure it out now. What could be the issue? Is there some belt that could have cut or is it a failure of the power steering unit itself?? All other electricals are working just fine. Btw, its a '04 2.6 DX Turbo non-crde.

Just wanted to know whats what before the service station guys give me some nonsense.

In all likelihood it's the power steering belt.
Simple matter to replace it.

Default Re: Mahindra Scorpio : Issues & Solutions

Hey Guys, Need help on the below aspects of the Scorpio. Mine is a SLE (16 day old) and has run a little over 400+ kms.

1. Whenever I'm waiting in the traffic lights, I hear tuk, tik, tuk, tuk noise from the dash. Is it the compressor switching off and on depending on the inside temperature? Never heard such noises in my Innova. Might be happening during my drive also but can hear it distinctively when idling.

2. The rear suspensions are like as if there is no action on them. I have my last row seats folded (Mine is a 8FF) and it just keeps bumping (Thud, Thud) whenever I drive on a rough patch of road. Even If I have them unfolded and locked, the rear jumps and I do not see any suspension action. My tires are filled with 32 PSI, normal air and most of the time drive alone.

3. The fog lamps, headlights, In cabin lights and the green illuminator in the dash are flickering. Cannot be noticed just like that but will have to watch it keenly to feel that they are flickering.

4. The scorp came with Apollo Hawks. Are they good? Have not seen any reviews about them.

help.

Rgds,

I have the new Scorpio and earlier had a 2006 CDRe. The water splash issue has been there in the old one, and it is still there in the new one. No difference. I believe even the designers at Mahindra have failed to come up with a solution. I have learnt to live with it. I watch out for puddles ahead and slow down.

I have a Scorpio about 1 month old and I have the flickering too. Only while idling though. This may be because the alternator is acting up. Or may be the rectifier and regulator, RR-Unit is faulty.

I intent to get this checked during the next visit to the service center.

Update on this. They have finally said they need to replace the complete rear axle assembly. Has been ordered and dispatched from Nashik. Expecting it any day.

I wanted to share my experience with India Garage Service Center on Whitefield road (behind Xylem/tractor factory). When I first took the vehicle there, the service adviser assigned was a guy called Yadav. He had not clue how to even drive the automatic. He had his legs, one on the accelerator and the other on the brake, and he was telling me that that's the way its to be done .

Anyway, he got the expert, a guy called Nagaraj to look at the problem. They confirmed after some testing that its the rear axle and itll have to be replaced. Yadav then said that it'll take two weeks for the axle to reach us from Nashik. After several calls and weeks, and no sight of the axle, I went to the service center again and asked for the status. The manager, Santosh, came to me and said that further tests need to be done. While I was of the impression that the item has been ordered.

Turns out that the service advisor, Yadav was lying to me all along. It was never ordered and he was misleading me. I asked him about this in front of the service manager and all he did was look down on the floor. So folks on the forum, please be vary of this guy.

The process is that a Mahindra technician has to inspect the vehicle and give the go-ahead for a replacement for an expensive part like the axle. Before they give the go-ahead there are several adjustments that they will try. If none of the adjustments work, Mahindra technical team will send a formal email to the service center advicing them to replace. The service center has to quote this email while ordering the part from M&M.

In my case this took another two days. I got a call from them yesterday saying that its been despatched and is expected to be delivered to them today.

The experience at India Garage service center has not been great, mainly due to this guy, Yadav. Nagaraj, the technician is knowledgeable on automatics and has been a great help. It is always better to talk to the service manager and get him in the loop as well.

1. Check the quantity of your ac gas, it is on the higher side resulting in the compressor relay tripping more often than required. In the long run, this will ruin the air conditioning system.
2. The rear suspension of the Scorpio is harder than that of the Innova, however if you feel that it does not seem to budge at all, try pressing the vehicle down with your weight by standing on the rear tire and making the vehicle rock when stationary. Also, drive another vehicle to compare notes and then take it to the ASC if required.
3. This has been answered, it is your regulator or rectifier which needs to be checked/replaced. As a principle, replace them as a set.
4.The Apollo Hawks are not the best tires around. BS Duelers are far better but Yokohama Geolanders are known to be the best AT tires in the affordable range.

Some small doubts on my almost 4 year old VLX

1. With the engine off when I tried to wind up the window the cabin lights are getting dimmed (the follow me home feature was on and the headlights were also on as a result). Is it the time to replace the battery, however it was checked during servicing a couple of months back and found to be ok.

2. The rain water leaking issue in the cabin is still persistant till now, the windscreen has been taken off and refitted and I have filled all the nooks of the antenna fitting with mSeal, the water flow is arrested after the refitting of the windscreen but the water still seems to be tricking in a small amount an the roof lining above the IVRM is all wet.

A slight flickering of the bulbs will happen when any motor is operated with the engine off, that is normal. The best way to check the battery's health is by plugging a multimeter to it and check its current followed by the condition of the cells and the battery water inside them.

Hi Devdath,

Thx for the reply. Do you have any specification for the gas pressure? 50 - 80 PSI? or more for a MHawk compressor else I will leave it to the ASC to decide.

With respect to Apollo's, I will have to check the local tyre dealers to see the exchange rate for the older ones with new BS Duelers or Yoko Geo's AT's. Any idea on this? Mine has just run 450 kms....

Is it possible for me to upsize the tyres and does it void any warranty? what is the next upzise possible for the stock tyres?

Thx for your help.

Rgds,

Sorry for butting in, but here are my $0.02 about the tyres.

I'm using JKs for the past 37k kms on my SLE, and trust me, the Hawkz cannot be worse than them. Also, since your vehicle is already more than a couple of weeks old, the resale value of the stock tyres would also have gone down a bit. For what it's worth, my advice is to stick to the Hawkz till 40k kms or so, and then change them. That's what I've planned, at least

If you do want to change them now, stick to the stock size. That's the best for the Scorpio and there won't be any warranty issues either.

Cheers,
Vikram

It is the quantity of gas in the ac system that decides the pressure and if I reckon correctly it is supposed to be between 7.8-8.2kgs. The ASCs have equipment that correctly measures it, so it should not be an issue.

Coming to tires, I would not recommend a change now since you will lose a lot of value on them even though they have done 450kms only. Let them run their full life and then plan a change accordingly. About sizes, I m not a tire expert but do not recommend an upsize unless thoroughly guaranteed by an expert.
