I had faced this issue (krrr krrr noise) with a fully warmed up engine at 110+ km/h (no noise at slow speeds, and none even at high rpm in lower gears!), and was worried it was from the turbocharger! Had to do a 70 km test drive with the technical specialist to pinpoint the noise source (which took him all of 30 seconds when the noise did occur). He initially used a piece of rope to tie and hold the pipes apart, and once it was decided that the noise had disappeared, he adjusted the pipes to prevent the noise from recurring. Said it is a common issue, and the noise my car had was mild compared to what many others had. The noise depends on how hot/cold the pipes and the engine bay are.

After a long time i am posting here something about issues of my buddy, here it goes

1. I always hear a click sound whenever i press the clutch. It feels like some thing opening and closing from engine bay. Not sure what but some say it a clutch play noise on a higher side.

2. Mycro Hybird works whenever it feels so.It's kind of having a mind of it's own, no issues observed on quick inspection from A.S.S as it worked fine that day.

My buddy crossed 26,623 kms as of today past 2 years and in general its serving us well. Need advice on above issues before going back to A.S.S

I own a Scorpio LX 2010 model and the seats that came as OEM specifications have become hard now and it doesn't give you the required comfort when you drive. Is it possible to retro fit a Ford Endeavor seat (Front, middle and last row)

From a technical standpoint, would it create any safety hazard by doing one of the proposed installations?

Thoughts / feedbacks welcome.

If any of the T-BHPians have already done it, request you to please post photographs for easier understanding

Default Scorpio 2.6 Turbo Plus Overheat

Dear All,

My brother got himself a pre owned 2005 2600Turbo Plus Scorpio. This is the first ever SUV in the family. We are used to Maruti and Hyundai hatch backs mainly.

Its got one issue that is bugging us a lot,

After an hours drive the temp guage shoots to the Red Mark from the Mid Position and then returns back in a minute or so.
Stopped the car each time this happened and no sign of overheat was seen no coolant spillage the level is at full..etc

This happens only after the needle reaches the half way mark, and any higher then it hits redline. Return to mid position takes little or no time (say 30 sec ) on relatively cool driving condition. In hot conditions (city driving) some times it takes a longer. (1-2 minutes).

Contacted TVS and the SAmfirst response was, "oh overheat, then we have to dismantle and find if internal damages have occured"..

I asked him "ok fine, but what could cause the overheat in the first place."

Ans- "That we cant say, please leave vehicle with us and will get back to you". Because of the holidays we dont are short of staff, hope you need the car only after the holidays.."

We have taken the car back.

I have done through the thread for the issue , and came across one issue (tisofkrishna pg 171), but couldnt come across a solution.

Seek your advice on a possible cause and solution!

Does this Scorpio have fan driven by belt (in which case it will be always on like mines) or a fan turned on and off by the ecu?

I think TVS is talking total nonsense.
I would check if the temperature gauge is malfunctioning & have it changed just to be sure. Check if the fan is working, coolant levels and engine oil levels are OK. If there is any engine overheating, it would have resulted in either coolant pipe burst or you would have seen significant depletion in levels of both coolant and engine oil.

It would be worth testing the coolant temperature sensor.
All you need is an electric kettle with water. Have the coolant temp sensor unmounted and dip it in the kettle (with the wiring in place), turn on the kettle and keep watching the temperature gauge. If it goes up smoothly right up to the boiling point you can then turn the kettle off and start diluting the water with cold water and see if the gauge comes down smoothly. You can repeat this test, just to be sure.

My Scorpio is with Manjit Singh now, for a complete AC Repair job. I also faced this kind of noise. Can you just take a picture of the Pipes which were adjusted to resolve this. That would be really helpful. I can perhaps get this done along with the AC job that Manjit Singh is doing for me right now.

My Scorpio (Sep 2008) seems to be in for a major suspension overhaul as the dug up roads on account of Metro Rail Work & Concreting of the highway have taken their toll over the last 1.5 years.

I had the vehicle checked at the free service camps at Mahindra First Choice and the following have been identified:

1. Engine Light On, on the dashboard. Seems to be some issues with the turbo wiring.
2. Car not taking proper Pickup
3. Suspension - The following need to be replaced (quote given by Mahindra First Choice):
I. Front Rod Bush (Rs. 100)
II. Link Rod Set (Rs. 860)
III. Upper Ball Joint (Rs. 650)
IV. Lower Ball Joint (Rs. 850)
4. Wheel Balancing and alignment

Need advise if I should get it done at the A.S.S., Mahindra First choice or a neighbourhood garage. The rates are much higher that the A.S.S.

I have had this issue since I bought my Scorpio 5.5 yrs. back. It is something to do with the play but no one has been able to pinpoint or find a remedy for it. So I have been living with it.

But just found this solution from the XUV niggles thread:

"Click sounds from front and back axles whenever I change gears (especially 1 and 2) and release the clutch. Took it right away to the RM. He said, there is a lug nut in the wheels that just need to be tightened with the right tourque. Issue was fixed in 10 mins."


Since the XUV is a FWD the voice is coming from the rear end the same would be reverse for Scorpio which is a RWD, worth trying this out

Dear All,

The AC of my my Scorpio 2003 Non-CRDE failed. I had given it to Manjit Singh of Cool Days in Lajpat Nagar to get it fixed.

He changed the Cooling coil which had leaked, and serviced the Compressor (changed Bearings plate etc). I paid him 15300 for the job.

During Removal and Assembly of the Dashboard they seem to have totally screwed up the AC control panel with the 3 Knobs. The direction Flow Knob will not work, and the knob for the Fan speed will not turn to the Fresh Air side at all.

My Scorpio has the old Cabled type of AC control Knobs. I have been told by the Mechanic that the panel uses 5-6 wires. Now I am trying to source this Central AC Contol panel with 3 Knobs with 5-6 cables. I called up all three Authorised Service Centers in New Delhi, and they all told me this is not available and they can't even order it from the company as it is not available there too.

I need the help if anybody can point me to where I could get this from. I am willing to pay for it and Manjit Singh the AC workshop owner at Cool Days has promised to fix it.

Please help if you have any ideas where this can be sourced.

Thanks
Styler

I also have the same type controls, and mine also got jammed long ago - did repair it a couple of times, but now except for the main rotary rest is not functional. I think the full centre panel has to be changed and switch alone my not be available. It is better to source the switch assembly alone from the used-parts markets.

Dear HVK Sir,

When my scorpio was just 8 months old, the Knobs were hard and Mahindra had got this complete AC Control Assembly with 3 knobs changed under warranty for me then. I have been using it with soft hands since then. It was working perfectly till now when the Dashboard had to be opened up to replace the cooling coil.

I am looking for the AC control Panel Assembly with the 3 Knobs, the Switches, and the 5-6 cables. I know it can be replaced if i can source it because as i mentioned above it was replaced once under warranty long time back.

Bhasin motors told me that since this is not available from the Company, the only solution is to completely change the entire central assembly with vents to the Hydrolic system, and that change costs 34000 for parts + labor. That would be about 40K fix for failed AC Knobs and that is too expensive.

I would rather spend time and source the Cabled AC control Panel and replace it. Some Service Advisor at a Mahindra dealership told me that they had once sourced the Switch assembly for the cabled system from Kashmiri Gate (The wholesale Aftermarket in Delhi). He advised me to take out the old one and take it there to source a new one. I am just hoping I will get some leads before getting it out.

HVK Sir there are many varients of the cabled switches too. There is one with 2 cable, one with 3 Cables, and one with 5 cables like mine. One MASS has the The 3 AC switch assembly which uses 2 cables. If by any chance your Scorpio uses this one I can get this one for you.

My 2011 mhawk has done 70000kms and is at CAI Coimbatore for its routine service. The AC cooling has gone down and the technician has detected a leakage with the cooling coil.The charges for the coil is about 14000.This is the first major expense on my Scorpio.
Are the charges correct?
Looks like this month is going to be a drain on my pocket as there are a couple of expenses on the Scorpio starting with the ac coil, tyre replacement.

Hey Guys,

I got my Scorpio (VLX) horn replaced by the ASS. The new horn is quite high pitched and sounds like a smaller car. I told the advisor that the horn isn't the same but he insists that it's the original horn used for Scorpio. I know for sure that this horn sounds drastically different. It's quite shrill and a bit annoying. Any way to check if this is the same horn which comes installed with Scorpios? Does anyone know the make and model of the original horn?

AFAIK, there must two horns where one is low tone and the other one is high tone. Which company is it BTW?

Check the bill you have and try to verify the part number with their parts catalogue or post that part number here so other members can help you out.
