Exclamation Renault Logan 1.5dCi Brake(Stop light) Switch

We have bought a pre-owned Logan 1.5 dCi 2009 model. There are a couple of issues with it and we have solved everything except the Brake light switch. It is broken and we're not able to find a replacement for the same.

Since the brake light doesn't glow when brakes are hit, i'm finding it as a risk. Is there any chance we can use some other mahindra/renault model's brake switch?

Any of the logan users can throw some light if any alternate is available or a mechanic who can help solve the issue.

PS: I'm in chennai

Have you tried to find it at Mahindra service centres? The Verito is nothing but a rebadged Logan.

This link is the parts in common for petrol and Diesel.

Can you check this link and I guess this switch is what you are looking for. Am I right?! This link takes you to the part I think:

Post a clear snap of switch, mounting & the connector/socket.
If I'm right, it should be common with Duster

Thanks guys. issue is the break switch is missing.

last i checked with the mechanic, he mentioned that he will try it with indica break switch.
I think it will be temporary fix if it works. i shall start looking for the part in the GP Road.

Many parts are common for Logan, duster, verito, terrano , sunny etc. Any good spare part shop should be able to provide the switch

Of late, I was feeling that my Verito's suspension had become soft. the car used to bottom out on most of the speed breakers, particulary at the rear shock absorbers.

I took the car for a check at Manhindra's workshop in Gurgaon. They had free chekcup camp running and found that one of the front shocks had its rubber boot (cover type of thing) damaged quite a bit. The total cost of chaging front and rear shocks, rubber parts, labor etc were estimated at 18-20K.
I checked this outside and the good quality stuff, along with labour came to 10.3K. which is significantly lesser. So, got these done outside and now the car drives very different in a good way :-)
front shocks set - 3600 (Sona make)
rubber covers including bearing - 800 for both
circular rubber which is at the top of front shocks - 1000 for both (VRK or something)
rear shock abosrbers set - 3200 (monroe)
Labour - 1400
Alignment - 300

Can you post the snaps of parts that were changed? It's difficult to grasp the actual part without snaps

I've ended up in some problems after the changes of front and rear shock absorbers etc. First: there is a noise from rear left suspension when found over potholes and Speedbreakers. Second: memory steer - steering tends to keep itself turned in the direction we make a full turn - alignment guy says this is due to some issue with fitting of front suspension bushes or bearings.
I went back to the mechanic who had done the fitment, he tried to fix the noise, but no success.
Can anyone suggest a very good mechanic (expert) who can remove all the suspension front and rear, assemble it again properly and ensure the car is normal again?

Memory steer issue was resolved on Sunday by a FNG, near wazirabad.
The issue was due to improper fitting of bearings - bearings got damaged and we had to use old ones, which I had not thrown off - lucky,
Second issue remains ...

Hi,
I am facing problems with the power steering of my Verito/Logan. Car had met with an accident and was repaired.
1. Power steering was working after the accident and stopped working after refitting.
2. It drains all battery when the car is off. So, it does not work at all and still drains the battery even when the car is switched off completely.
3. Removing the power steering pump fuse have resolved the battery drain issue.

Can this be fixed or would I need a replacement?
New power steering pump costs ₹45000. I don't intend to spend so much money on this car.

If you are in Delhi region, try to search the pump from Kashmiri gate area.
Or see if it can be repaired from bosch/Delphi motor service Center

Is there any way to check if the pump is really the culprit? I have a feeling that it could be something else, like maybe faulty wiring. My mech is very confident about faulty pump but then he was also confident about a faulty ECU when the car wont start and it turned out to be a faulty injector.
Scrapyards are selling replacement pumps for a minimum of ₹5k here.
Also I've been told that mahindra ASS will punch in some codes for the replacement pump to work.

I surely would not buy anything Renault ever again. Spares are way too costly and mostly unavailable. I had to get the screws fabricated for wiper assembly as they were of such special size that was not available anywhere.

In that case better to get the issue confirmed by Mahindra ASS, after that you can get repair done outside at any FNG.
Looks like some elec fault as otherwise battery drain may not happen. Ask them to check wiring thoroughly.
It is true that spare parts are expensive and difficult to get.

The gear knob of my 6yr old verito d6 got cracked due to hot temperatures in gurgaon. Searched some forums on internet and came to know that the gear knob was 2000/- to 3000/- at mahindra ASS.
I was lucky that I got one for 500/- at sector 52 in gurgaon. 30/- for fitting and I was so happy again :-)
