Bangalore folks do you know any Tata spare parts dealer or third party garage where one can buy spares ? I know A.S.S sells parts OTC but there is difference in cost and I think jobs such as air filter change voluntary intermediate oil change ( need Oil filter) etc. are best done outside.

Today I checked my airfilter it is dark grey in color and tapping against wall did not make much difference. The red band has not appeared . Also in the Air box I noticed some sand particles so I think a filter change is reqired.
amit, just try Real Automobiles in JC road. There is a big difference in part price.

Exact same problem was told to me by a friend who owns a Safari 2.2 Dicor.

He said that this happens only after driving for a few kilometers when the brakes have had a chance to warm up. It is almost like a "Grinding" noise accompanied with vibration from the front discs. His vehicle has done around 4K till date.

Do let us know if you find a solution.

OL so let me guess you notice this sound when you apply brakes to come to standstill or to near stop speed right ?
If this is correct can you tell us in which gear you observed this ? Do you downshift before applying brakes or depress clutch ?

This vehicle has enormous torque so behavior is not like petrol vehicles.
If you notice this only while stopping without shifting down or pressing clutch there is nothing to worry.

+1.

To test, start the truck and drive around (warm up and steady idling). Now come to 1st or 2nd gear, stop her while pressing clutch. When the speed is zero, clutch pressed fully, no accelerator, leave the clutch and feel the beast's reaction.

Boy! it was an experience for me and the two watchmen who saw it. If, I go further, it will be OT

He says he is sure that is happens only after the brakes have warmed up a bit. Also it comes only when he is braking gradually to come to a complete stop.

The pressure applied on the brake pedal is firm but not like as if trying to jam the brakes He has also tried it in while pressing the clutch in both second and first gears as well as in neutral. in all cases the vibration (like something is grinding) is present.

If he applies firmer pressure then the vibration is absent, it is almost like the vibration is present only when a certain amount of pressure is applied and the vehicle is brought to complete stop while maintaining the same pressure on the brake pedal till it comes to a stop.

Hope this explains

Similar issue was reported here and TASS had a solution. I couldnt find the post though. I was something to do with the front disc or so.

I literally searched each and every page of this thread for the problem but have not found the solution for the problem(Though i learned about all the possible problems I may suffer later),Well I will be checking the problem out with TASS tomorrow,But before that please give me an idea about the above problem so that I don't make a fool of myself tomorrow.

Default Stronger headlamps for my Safari

Guys,

I recently did the first long/night drive in my Safari and felt that the stock headlamps (I believe these are 55/60) are not powerful enough. Somewhere on this thread I read about upgrading to Osram 90/100. Are those good eough? Anyone tried that? Any other suggestions?

Are you sure this is not just ABS pulsating? I am told ABS brakes give a vibrating/pulsating feedback.

Question Hvac

Hi. I need some clarity on the actual functioning of the HVAC system of the 2.2. I have noticed that hot air starts coming from the vents when I turn the temp knob to the centre (medium cool) when the aircon is on. Is this normal. If not how do u get the aircon to work in low cool. Also when I turn the temp knob I hear a thunk noise as if some vent is being closed partially. What is this noise?

Stock is 55/60W.

Its coz hot is mixed with cold air to get the effect! Not a control in the thermostat.

Right guys ?
