The tube was not bent but moulded in that fashion to suit its position.

This is what still bugs me though haven't faced any issues in 6 months of a very satisfied ownership, do feel that there is still a lack of cohesion among the dealers and TATA people with customers. One thing that I am still trying to get straight over here is for them to follow the exact specification of engine oil as mentioned in the manual.

Anyway a big relief and now enjoy the runs.

When I first saw this thread, I thought was looking at a really rare case of critical component failure. But now it reaffirms the fact that if something fails in your tata its either something made of rubber, or an electrical part.

Good to your Safari back in action.

Maybe the tube was a tight fit and hence tore.

Did they tell you not to change the engine oil and if they had changed which brand did they use?

Good to know that it was resolved, but I thought they already did an inspection for air leakage in the turbo!!

Thats the most common malfunction that a TURBO faces.

I was almost sure it was not the turbo.

Anything but not the Garrett turbo, knowing how it works.

Nice to know that it has been solved And nice to read that it's just a little rubber tube which caused all this trouble.

Thanks to sandeepmdas for providing those first web links which helped towards solving this issue.

That is one happy ending! :-)

Thank God that it was a minor (though no less critical) failure, and no major component was an issue.

Came down to this thread to check the update and was expecting some really bad story - but hey, got this pleasant surprise.

Hope you get to do the weekend trip, minus the 'service light' or any other issue. Happy motoring mate!

Thanks again to everyone.
JK, the service advisor informed that the brand of engine oil used is Castrol.ViscositySAE 15W-40 SpecificationsAPI CF - 4
Rechecked for the same on Castrol Website.
Castrol India - GTD#
I collected the vehicle back after 1st service at around 7 pm. My bill came upto Rs 2990. with oil (Rs 188 x 7.5 lt = Rs 1410.00), filter (Rs 182.00) changed, Engine flushed(Rs 759.00) and Bardahl new engine additive(Rs 478.00) added. The workshop GM himself emphasised on this. After all their contribution over the past 2 days I felt obliged and agreed.
On reaching home I took my family for a ride and dinner. Everybody was delighted that the saga finally ended soon on a happy note.

Hey great news, and as usual its that annoying lil part that caused so much of pain. Its a classic example of bad QC control at vendor end.

Enjoy the big momma for the kms to come.

Dhruv,

What intrigued me was that the damaged vaccum pipe was replaced with the one taken out from the Demo vehicle. Why? Didn't the ASC have a new piece in stock?
